Looks like the series is officially dead.
FWIW, I don't blame IU for wanting a home and home. Kentucky wanted the neutral site because of revenue, and a home and home series provided no new revenue for UK because we sell out Rupp regardless. A two year agreement at Lucas Oil Stadium would have provided double the IU fans the opportunity to watch the Hoosiers play in person, but would have taken away the home crowd factor with a sea of blue across the stadium.
Not to mention, Kentucky went 12-3 in the 15 years of the neutral site. Hopefully we meet up in March again.
