Part of the problem with the whole "Indianapolis is a sports Mecca" model is that it's not infinitely sustainable. And if the powers that be, the ones that decide to dump so much public funding into it, think it is the city is going to whither and die. Building Naptown into Indianapolis based on a sports model was fine and all, but it's flash in the pan type stuff. I'm not about to pretend to now anything about city planning, certainly not involving a state capital metropolis (but I'll tell you how to fix Crawfordsville). They created an unsustainable bubble just to get on the radar, which comes from a good place, but now the bubble's burst and we're oversaturated. So....now what? Indy ain't that big.
