Source: Kentucky/Indiana game unlikely this year


Earlier today, the Indianapolis Business Journal published a report saying that Kentucky and Indiana are in talks to renew the series, much to Ryan Lemond’s delight. Indiana’s AD Fred Glass said he wants to bring back the UK/IU rivalry as soon as this season, but a source tells KSR that probably won’t happen because both teams needs a home game this year and the only possibility is a neutral site game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Next season’s non-conference schedule is already loaded with neutral site and away games. The Cats will travel to Chicago to play Duke, Brooklyn to play Ohio State, Miami to play South Florida, Los Angeles to play UCLA, and a Big 12 school for a true road game. The only marquee non-conference home game so far is Louisville at Rupp.

While both sides may be ready to renew the rivalry, they may have to wait until 2016-2017 to make it happen.

    I hope we never play them again. There is no benefit for us to play them.

      I’m starting to feel the same about UL, too. They just hurt our SOS, and we have beaten them so much in the last several years, its barely even a competitive rivalry any more.

    It is to the point that I wouldn’t buy UK season tickets even if I had the opportunity. Literally all the good games other than UofL are at neutral sites.

    Just out of curiosity, are the comments turned off for the Chris Jones article?

      It must be, because there isn’t a single comment posted.

    RE Chris Jones:

    Please tell me in what world the women would/should be able to file a civil suit over this??? Do you know how easy it is for a guy to get indicted by a grand jury for rape? The fact that he wasn’t even indicted–not tried and found not guilty–but indicted shows that there was NO validity to the claims. The alleged “victims” should be arrested. This tremendously hurts the women that actually do get raped as well as Chris Jones and his reputation.

      I agree. That’s exactly what I was going to post. These victims should have charges filed against them of some sort.

      Perjury, slander, and defamation of character to be exact.

    I hope UK never plays IU in the regular season again. Their fans have a complete underdog mentality. Their institution that was once relevant now builds shrines to meaningless games and their coach is a big mouth sleaze. UK has absolutely no obligation to help make IU feel relevant again.

      UK v. IU used to be a good rivalry, but that was 30+ years ago. Can you really call it a rivalry when one team wins 95% of the time?

    No to IU! No to IU!

    Please make it happen. I was one of the few UK fans at the 2012 game, after that I wanted to beat them 100 times in a row. This is my favorite rivalry, even better than UL.
