If the old format is never coming back which is too bad this sounds like a relatively good alternative under the circumstances, especially with the transit link. That was initial main concern that the coliseum would be basically isolated from all the cool Indy sports and entertainment venues. Sure beats Detroit. Not that worried about the IUPUI home advantage. Indy is a good central location . Wish it was at Hinkle actually but would be kind of tacky I guess after Butler bolted the conference.

under the current 8 team format we dont get the chance to make our run to the tournament finals under Laval a couple years ago . under a 4 team format, we're playing out the string with 6 games to go! Right now oakland is the 4th seed at 7-6, we are 2.5 GB of them right now.
I have no information on this but is it possible that IUPUI is going to move back to the Jungle for the years that the tourney is in Indiana Farmers Coliseum?
From what I’ve heard, no. This was as much of a sham as you’d expect it to be. LeCrone wanted it in Indy and did what was necessary to make sure it’d happen.
LeCrone wanted it in Indy and couldn't get any of the neutral venues there to host it so he bypassed the rules the conference schools laid out and put it at IUPUI's home court anyways. I really hope this is the decision that finally gets the HL schools to sh*t can his ass. NKU's AD isn't the only one furious about this decision.
