I agree. I think the home field sites would be really cool. And most big time football teams (the teams making the final 4 or whatever they call it) have big stadia to play in and are used to lots of media and hosting big games. And frankly, who the hell cares about whether or the media is comfortable. Let them drive an hour or 2. It's a game for the fans. Don't let the tail wag the dog.
I think games in Tallahassee, Tuscaloosa, Columbus, Eugene, Athens, Ann Arbor, Norman, Austin, etc etc would be really cool. Even Cincinnati. They could play at PBS and make it a big whoop dee doo. Every one of those SEC, Big 10, PAC-12, Big 12, etc etc college towns would bend over backwards to make it a great event.
Plus I'd love to see an SEC team play in the midwest winter. I think they'd play great anyhow, but I'd love to see them with parkas on, muddy uniforms, frosty breath. Football like God meant it to be.
