A Word on Football In Wrigley: DANGER

Northwestern and Illinois are playing the first college football game in Wrigley Field since 1938 this weekend. Someone thought aligning the field like this was a good idea:

Wrigley used to be a regular football venue, with college games being played there for a while and the Bears calling it home until moving to Soldier Field in 1970. Back in the day, idiots weren't in charge of the field alignment:

It's hard to see there, but the field is aligned 90 degrees off from how it is for this weekend's game. It also leaves some space behind the end zones in case anyone needs it.

Careful on the post patterns this weekend, fellas.
