I wish I watched enough to cast a vote but I do watch enough to love this idea and follow along.

Makes me sick that Duke will obviously be #1 in our first rendition. Dammit. Not cool.

You never know...they just played 3 games in 4 days..traveled late back to the east coast and went right back to Indiana yesterday.

 

Indiana isn't good but they are at home, will treat this game like their Super Bowl and Duke could be tired. 

 

First true road game for the freshman too.

First true road game in November since 1879?

 

Good to see. 

 

Seriously though, watching games at Indiana on TV is the worst now that they've seemingly put the camera on the roof. It's awful. It used to show the closest angle to the floor of any arena, now it's the farthest. And yes, I'm a total dork for this (among other things), but it's such a pet peeve.

Hey now..they were in Bloomington and Wisconsin recently!

 

They usually do a true road game for this event.

 

But yea, not much other than that.

I honestly can't remember one...The Palace for Michigan State, the United Center for Illinois...etc, but I'll take your word for it.

I do find it funny that, outside of the Big 10/ACC thing where dook pretty much has to go on the road, K refuses to schedule real road games out of conference.

Well, is it a refusal or do the other schools want to make more money by going to a bigger venue? They are also always in some kind of a tourney or 2 and those are always in neutral courts.

He certainly could go to some of the mid majors but almost no one does that.

Oh...lol. No, not that little thing.

I meant that I wonder if that is why they don’t always play true away games...does the host school like the idea of more money?

Btw, it could also mean that Duke is just being shitty about it...I don’t doubt that..just saying, when bigger money is involved, schools may prefer that.
