Basketball in a football dome

Tom Crean said he hopes they keep the roof closed.

Meant to post this earlier but it slipped my mind. Hopefully, you can still get tickets. There are only 40,000 of them available.

Is Lucas Oil Stadium a dome? I thought it was a stadium with a retractable roof. This is not very accurate reporting.

Just because Indy is awash in blue these days, and even though the seats feature horseshoes, I’d still suggest they play football in a basketball dome. Every bit of the structure’s design is modeled after and borrowed from Indiana’s iconic basketball field houses. Let us not forget that long before Peyton and Co. were Indiana’s darlings, Hoosiers have packed countless beautiful brick buildings, large and small, to see nothing else but roundball! I agree with Crean’s assessment that no other team more deserves to break in this monument to Indiana’s passion and history for sports.

J.,

It was sort of tongue-in-cheek. I was under the assumption that most people knew all about Lucas Oil, a public project that has been discussed widely in recent weeks.
