Dandies To Turn Out For IU, Purdue Games

IU Hoops, Purdue Hoops

Some of Indiana's well-heeled fans will be attending the Crossroads Classic.

Some of Indiana’s well-heeled fans will be attending the Crossroads Classic.

Michael Pointer of the Indianapolis Star on what is expected to heavily Indiana crowd at this weekend’s Crossroads Classic involving the Hoosiers, Purdue, Notre Dame and Butler:

Officials from IU, Purdue and Notre Dame said their schools sold their entire allotment of tickets. Butler returned “several hundred” upper-level tickets, a school spokesman said.

Peduto said he expects about the same number of fans for each school on the lower level of the fieldhouse. That’s because well-heeled donors with access to prime seats are less likely to sell their tickets on the secondary market.

On the upper level, however, Peduto said he wouldn’t be surprised if IU fans have 90 percent of the seats. That’s good business for ticket brokers.

I now expect to see an arena full of men in suits, tophats and monocles – and women in their Sunday best.
