While we are in the throws of college football camps opening and the news seems to be focused there, if you're a Hoosiers fans chances the news of this past week has driven you crazy. First, it was found out that Indiana will take on Louisville on a neutral court during the 2014-15 season and now the second of two verbal commits to Tom Crean and the basketball program has gone the route of the first and backed off... OUCH.
So Tom Crean lost 2 early verbal recruits Trey Lyles and now James Blackmon Jr. I bet IU fans are losing their minds right now! #iubb— Michael Tucker (@DetroitKid33) August 8, 2013
Why ouch? Well, Tom Crean was hell bent on making sure the now non-existent UK vs. IU series be played at the homes of each school. After all, it was all about the students, right? But fast forward a few season and it's perfectly fine to play "that other school" from Kentucky on a neutral court? Call me crazy, but it's hard to see how a game in Madison Square Garden between two schools that are less than two hours apart benefits the students.no comments
