As many Bears fans know, our local gridiron heroes will be moving to a new home for the summer camps. Yep, as of July 20th, the Bears will move from their summer camp home in Platteville, Wisconsin to some heretofore undecided university (or Rantoul AFB) within the state of Illinois. Only makes sense, in my mind, that the Chicago Bears train in Illinois and not the homestate of their biggest rival, the Green Bay Packers of Wisconsin. Am I the only one who thinks this makes sense? Well, anyway, the list of potential host universities has been cut down dramatically. Originally, the list consisted of 11 universities. However, recently eliminated from the running are UIUC, ISU, SIU Edwardsville and Carbondale, Monmouth, Rockford, Knox and the Rantoul AFB. This leaves Olivet Nazarene, Millikin, EIU and my alma! Woo hoo! NIU may be the new host to the Bears summer camp. That would be so cool to go out there and watch the Bears train. Nice and close, too. I'm liking this. Continue to woo, N-I-U!
