The news of the day out of Lexington is the Indiana/Kentucky series has ended. It’s been pretty big news since Kentucky’s roster is still in the air, since fans are scouring the web for information on the rest of the recruits left out there to see who Kentucky will add, for people not as interested in that (me) this was the biggest news of the week, by far, but who really cares?
Obviously ESPN cares enough for Andy Katz to mention it in his post:
” The Kentucky-Indiana series contract is over and the two sides are discussing renewing. But the two schools are at a major impasse. Indiana coach Tom Crean said Friday that he wants to play the series as a home-and-home. Kentucky coach John Calpari said Friday that he wants it to be a neutral-site game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis with tickets split down the middle. The series was last played at a neutral site in 2005 (prior to meeting in the Sweet 16 in Atlanta). “We can do it in Louisville, Lucas Oil, both teams benefit,” Calipari said. Crean rebutted saying, “It’s got to be a two-way street and taking it off campus isn’t anything that people here are excited about or behind.” (http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebasketballnation/post/_/id/58430/3-point-shot-kentucky-indiana-impasse)
I’m totally in the “I could care less” camp.
