To suggest they're "scared" of IU is completely ridiculous particularly given how they've completely dominated the series, regardless of where it has been played. The fact is UK doesn't need Indiana and it hurts IU's feelings. Fine, don't play UK - UK will find someone better to play anyway.
And let's compare OOC schedules next season and we'll see which team is scared to play a tough OOC schedule.
Dude, you are blind. IU wanted to play the game at Rupp this upcoming season. Rest on your laurels. The fact of the matter is UK wants money and IU wants the game played on campus. You might have dominated the series in the last 20 years, but the worm has turned.......hence the scared to play IU. UNC will be just like you guys next year.......a bunch of freshmen that are unproven. Enjoy that tough conference you are in and look forward to meeting you in the tournament next year. You and Duke can get cozy under the sheets, and Good Luck in South Bend.
