The Big Ten Has A Very Complicated Relationship With Cold Weather

At this point, I have no idea whether the Big Ten likes cold weather or not. If it asked all its schools to relocate to the equator, I'd be less surprised right now than at any other point in history. Try to square these two thoughts:

This all comes after a lifetime's worth of implications that weather-deprived teams from the pampered South would need to wheel enormous tubs of sizzling pork grease onto their sidelines just to survive a December game up North, though that one wasn't exactly an official Big Ten statement.

The cynic would allege that the only cold the Big Ten cares about is the hard cash kind, but let's stay on this case. We'll figure out the proper kind of terrible weather yet.
