Lived near South Bend for 10 years after living no farther north than Clemson in prior years of my existence. Yeah you get the occasional tOSU v UM game with snow. But in most instances the weather is better up north imho during football season than down south. You aren’t melting in the stands nor at tailgates. And if you freeze your nutz off, then maybe only once every few years.
But yeah, travel would suck for you folks who are still fortunate to live down South.
