A few years ago I watched Butler and some other Indiana team play a preseason game and thought, how is this not a pre-conference tournament? Indiana, basketball's Mecca, should have an intrastate tournament. The Hoosier Classic is a thing, but it's not enough.
I took last year's final Kenpom rankings and seeded what this year's tournament would have looked like. Dates and hosts are adjustable. But if that final four or final eight were in Indianapolis - the ticket sales would be astronomical.
