Purdue could be headed to the Big Apple in football form soon, as the Big Ten announced an 8-year deal with the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium starting after the 2014 season. Too bad the game is just a little too late for the spate of pre-season college basketball tournaments that end at Madison Square Garden like the 2KSports Classic of the Preseason NIT. It would be nice to double that game up.
The Pinstripe Bowl really needs to step forward and get an SEC team on board as the opponent. Let them come play in our weather.
