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.
A few years back. IU and Purdue played OOC due to the fact they only met once during the conference season. That Big East schedule is so messed up, you play most everybody only once. But you are right I dont think either would go for it. Scratch Notre Dame and insert Purdue(or Butler).
I dont know how many D-1 schools Kentucky has, but I have always liked the idea of having an in-state tournament here in Indiana and running like Maui. IU, Purdue, Notre Dame, Butler, Valpo, Ball State, Indiana State, and Evansville should make for a good one.
