The only problem would be it would have to be Purdue (or Butler) if you want to have an IU-UK game. I'm sure Notre Dame and Louisville wouldn't go for facing each other before conference play.
I do like the Crossroads Classic idea that Indiana did and I would like to see Kentucky do something similar in-state. Only problem is outside of Kentucky and Louisville, not a lot of competitive teams on a consistent basis. Murray State is good now, but two years from now it could be WKU, Morehead, or none of the above.
