Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball -- 7th Edition
With conference expansion, look for stuff like this to become the norm. I hate to see the UK/IU series end, but I'm assuming that's just temporary. Everyone wants to play UK, but we can't play home-and-home series with everyone. We've had more home-and-home series against top schools over the years (UofL, IU, UNC, Michigan State, Kansas, etc) than anyone else in the country. We are also now in the Champions Classic three-year deal (vs Kansas last year, vs Duke next year and vs Michigan State the following year). I don't know which direction our schedule goes from here, but playing 21 conference games beginning next year (including the tourney) has definitely changed the way you draw up the OOC portion of the slate.
