I actually wouldn't mind doing the yearly Freedom Hall game every year against Indiana. Politics might be the only thing that would stand in the way (state of Kentucky getting revenue), but with Indiana right across the state border, its a neutral location and UK/IU fans would be split 50/50. Think of it as The Red River Rivalry in basketball. One location every year and a tradition to boot.
I know back a few years ago Kentucky wanted the game to be in Indy every year due to the seating capacity.
But the neutral site thing ended when because of a scheduling conflict with the arena at Louisville, the game was played at Kentucky.
But I think Louisville would be the perfect location for the game.
