I live in Indiana now and travel to Cincinnati a lot, so the line as blurred. I do remember thinking Indianapolis was "too far" to go for any reason - even if it meant a Jordan-Miller matchup. Now I consider it's 1.5-2 hours and that isn't bad at all. And really, it's not. Perhaps the Pacers have market tested Cincinnati with no luck. But to me now, if there were an opportunity to gain significant relevance, it's right now - no matter what. Throw up a billboard or three on 71, 75, and the Lateral: West, Stephenson, and the Eastern Finals. It's also great PR for both UC and XU programs coming together, etc.
