The UK-IU series contract ran up immediately after Watford’s shot went through at the buzzer in Bloomington earlier this month. If the series isn’t renewed, that’ll be the last shot Indiana hit against Kentucky, and it’ll provide plenty of trash talking for IU fans for years to come. If the series continues, it is very likely that it will still be the last shot Indiana hit against Kentucky in Bloomington.
A source told KSR that Kentucky is interested in renewing the series and returning it to its neutral site format. UK prefers to rotate the game between Indianapolis and Louisville, the way it was done from 1991 until 2006. Part of UK’s reasoning is for scheduling purposes, and part of it is because we can’t send our Playmates to Assembly Hall anymore.
Kentucky has made it clear to IU that it wants to go back to neutral site games. It’s up to Indiana now.
The ball is in your court, Hoosiers. Just don’t hurt anyone rushing to it this time.
