    If we start talking logistics, I don't know what to say. The "Big 4" in Indiana are from diverse parts of the state. Ohio can't say that.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    You have two schools in Cincinnati, one in Dayton, and one in Columbus.

    Itís four hours from Cincinnati, three from Dayton, and two from Columbus.

    Cleveland would be neutral, but also pretty far away for people to travel.

    Now that Mack is gone, Xavier may be open to playing Dayton, so I could see a one game per team event like this happening. Xavier and UC couldn't play each other in this, though, so UC and X would have to rotate playing Ohio State and Dayton.

    It would essentially be like the Crossroads where IU and Purdue canít play each other.

    Yes, and the old Big Four Classic where Louisville and Kentucky didn't play each other.

    I understand that.....but I bet the people in Cleveland would love it.

    I'm glad the UK game was late last night and I couldn't stay up to watch it. Yeeeeesh what a beat down. I'm back to having little expectations for this UK team. Apparently the Duke Freshmen are the real deal. I watched some of the Kansas game. They look like a national contender for sure. They should easily win the Big 12 for the 110th consecutive season.

    So much for Zion being a non factor! Duke put on a clinic versus UK. I dont know what it is, but either UK isnt that good, or Duke is outstanding this year!!!

    A combination of both.

    Kentucky was a much better team in the Bahamas. That team looked on par with Duke and likely could have held their own.

    The team last night was the same team from the past two preseason games. I donít know if preseason hype has gotten to this team or if this will be a 2014 type of team that takes a whole season to gel. The talent is there, but it was nowhere to be found in Indianapolis.

    Duke has some issues too. I donít see them going undefeated as people are starting to suggest, but they did give up 84 points last night. They will get better, and that is scary come March.

    Yea it was a combo of both. Not only UK fans but the media bought into the way they played in the Bahamas. UK has looked bad in their two exhibition games and now the first game. Duke had a big say in that last night. They won't go undefeated but they won't lose very many either. If they stay together and keep improving they will be a juggernaut by March.

    I don't know. I think Dook can keep it close against the Hoosiers.
