PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Home and Home. Get it done. What a waste.
I know there's a game saturday, and my ass will be there.
SEC teams, no matter what sport, seem to practice skirting away from playing true road games on a consistent basis
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
It's not about it being a road game. They love road games, as long as they're at a pro venue and bring in tons of cash. IU-UK in Indy = big $$$.
Last year's LSU-Oregon game in Dallas wasn't about a nuetral site, it was about cashing in on the Jerry Jones marketing machine.
Kudos to IU for not selling out.
Getting butthurt at the last second at IU has nooothing to do with this? Keep it on campus where it belongs.
The game was on a neutral court for YEARS. It's only recently been on home courts and maybe long ago in the past. But during the 90's and early 2000's it was in Indy, half the arena was blue and half red.
As for UK avoiding road games I would say that's just not true. They play home and homes againt UNC and UofL every year. They have done home and home's as well as neutral court with Michigan State, UMass when th ey were good, Syracuse etc.
I hate UK, but I'll give them the credit they are do they'll play h ome and homes at tough venues against other teams. The thing is a neutral court game in Indy every year brings a lot of money to both schools.
I think it's a slap in the face to suggest that Assembly Hall - with all its history - is not a worthy venue every other year for the game. Props to IU. Kuck Fentucky. They played in one truly hostile environment all year and lost. I wonder how they would have done having to go play at Wisconsin, Michigan State, Ohio State (with the new student seating closer to the court... love it). Hell, even Purdue and Illinois are more hostile than any environment in the SEC (with the exception of Rupp, of course).
IU folks know they can't win a big one without home cookin'.
