    Also, great for hockey in Ohio. Hopefully they sell out.

    Of all the possibly great outdoor venues in either Michigan or Ohio, they pick Progressive Field? :confused:

    They could've filled the Horseshoe in C-bus easily for this.

    Closest thing to neutral ground between the two. Toledo is contested territory.

    That said, I would have loved to see it in the 'Shoe. Alas.

    I wish they would have picked a school other than Michigan. Thats 3 years in a row for them.

    Please. Like OSU would do anything that would involve assumption of risk, or especially laying out money.

    Screw 'em.

    Yeah, the loser of the war had to take over control of Toledo.

    An unspecified place on Google Maps, apparently
    Nice that it's officially official.

    Looking forward to watching it.

    Pretty cool. Can't wait to see two rivals play outdoors...

    I'd be stunned if this sells out, it's an odd choice for a venue. Ohio State is the home team for the entire state, but football and hockey are different beasts altogether and I'm not certain that the hockey team can really draw in a huge venue, especially outside of their own market. I'd be surprised if they could actually draw at the Horseshoe... it's not a hockey school by any stretch

    As a Michigan fan, though, I look forward to further embarrassment for OSU and, most importantly, the W (even though it's a given).

    And what's this BS about Toldeo being "contested"? Maybe if you define "contested" as "60/40 Michigan fans"... check out the list of most popular sports articles on the Toledo Blade's website this fall and you'll see who's king (though perhaps that just proves Buckeye fans are generally not literate? ;))

    They were the first ones to do it.

    You could make the argument they have the right to do it every year.

    I thought the first one was hosted by Michigan State, or am I missing some long past history?

    It was but they played Michigan. This is going to be Michigan's fourth time playing an outdoor game but only one has been what you could call a home game. They played at Michigan State, at Wisconsin, they played at the Big House last year which was their home game and then this game in Cleveland.

    I don't really have a big problem with them hosting or playing the game or whatever. How many teams are there in college hockey? Like 80? And a lot of those schools are small (Ferris State, Lake Superior State, Army, RIT, Alaska Fairbanks, Alaska Anchorage, Merrimack etc.) There aren't a lot of schools that can support an outdoor game.

    Exactly, Michigan plays every game because they can fill a stadium. Would be nice to see agamesMinnesota and North Dakota (if they even have a stadium capable of holding it or enough people in the state to fill said stadium)

    Minnesota vs North Dakota or Wisconsin at TCF Bank Stadium or Target Field would be pretty cool. Maybe if the Wild can get a Winter Classic they can do a double header of sorts.
