Good to Great

The subject of recruiting continues to be a contentious point surrounding Buckeye Basketball. Ohio States recruiting is good but not great so what makes recruiting great? The answer is people, not just average or enven above average people but great people with one focus. To contend with North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky and Kansas what has to be done. Stop playing football; when was the last time any of the afore mentioned teams had a football team worth a "tinkers fart"...can't remember (most who could are dead). So for the short term we will continue to be in the arena with the bigs of basketball and be prepared to get what they don't want.

Yeah, we should go back to when we weren't good at football and it allowed us to get Oden, Conley, Cook, and the like.

I'd been long awaiting the follow up to last month's long awaited, and oh so rational recruiting rant

Not a snowball chance in hell this thread should be entertained as a legitimate conversation

Kansas won a BCS bowl a few years ago. UNC had a solid program under Butch Davis, even though they, umm, cheated. Have you met anyone from UNC or Duke, especially UNC? They're douchebags, the worst at that. I don't want to emulate them, and to even suggest that our football program take a dive is absurd. Either this is excellent satire, or absolutely crazy...
