I liked it better when it was played at neutral sites.  Sea of red on one side and sea of blue on the other.  Don’t know why most are hung up on the home and home aspect, there’s other big name programs we can get for that.

To me regular season games are meant to be played on campus except for these in season tournaments.

I like it. Kentucky has to swim back home though. 

That's why Kentuckians built bridges over the Ohio River in the first place... So they could swim in the shade 🙂

I think the so called “recruiting boost” for Kentucky playing in Indiana on a neutral court site is way overblown in my opinion. They don’t need anymore exposure than they already have. Same with duke, unc, etc. Any kid being recruited at that high of a level is gonna be familiar with those programs. Playing a game near them isn’t going to change a thing. Just get the rivalry back and let’s watch some good basketball.

Draw a straight line between BTown and Lexington and you’d wind up approximately in Madison, IN. Given that town’s history of boat racing on the Ohio, here’s what we’re going to do. (Hold my beer)

We’re going to get a couple of barges, constrict a court and play the game in the middle of the damn river. One year we can have it slightly closer to Indiana, next year we can have it slightly closer to Kentucky. 
 

Two years of this and Teflon John will be begging to come back to SSAH, because god knows what a good dose of Ohio River water will do to those Ferragamo loafers. May want to put on socks Johnny Boy. :coffee: 

Hey man, no need to hate on a good loafer game.

I say do it in Chicago, not Indy.  

As a resident of Indiana and the Indianapolis area, f--- Chicago.  Why on earth would we move the game there?  Indy has better walkability to the venues, Indianapolis reaps some economic benefits from the game (as opposed to a city in another state), it is closer driving distance for both fan bases....

If you cannot get the game at home, there is no way in hell I would want it in Chicago.

I think some were trying to find a spot not in KY or IN, as we don’t want UK on display in our state.

I don't buy that playing in Indy would help UK in recruiting this area anymore than they already have.

Who cares where they play? Just play. Home/home? Fine. Neutral site in Indy? Fine. Destination neutral site? Fine. 

Just play them and beat them! It's a great rivalry, play them anywhere and beat them regularly.

I agree. Kentucky could duck us because we needed to play them a lot more then they needed to play us. Recognizing that reality, I don't much care where this gets played, just put it back on our schedule. It's what the fans want and elevates our program just by happening, no matter the result.

I think we are building a team that can beat UK, regularly.  I want that on full display in Indiana.
