According to OHSAA's own simulation - http://ohsaa.org/members/rcbp/RevisedCompetitiveBalanceProposal.htm

With a quick scan the highest non D1 (bc they couldn't move up anyway) Boundary Factors for boys basketball were for the following schools

PADUA FRANCISCAN - 31.8 

NOTRE DAME-CATHEDRAL LATIN - 28.8 

ST VINCENT-ST MARY (shocking I know) - 27

NONE of these schools moved up a division and most schools are no where NEAR this high of a Boundary factor.  Even Padua would have had to be in the top 20% of its division to be moved up.  A more common "high" number around 10-12 (just my approximation) would have to be somewhere in the top 7% of its division to be changed.  So even the "heavy" open enrollment schools are very likely not going to be effected by this (not yet). 

Since someone mentioned how ridiculous Villa Angela St Joes was I'll add this - Still in D4.

Kyle I hope you don't take this as an attack on your writing, but this article makes it seems like this will have a much bigger effect than it actually/immediately will.  I agree with you that this is very good for Ohio High School Sports and I think/hope they will tweak it to make it actually effective in what it is meant to do.

Schools that have heavy open enrollment will be affected, as will private schools. In most cases, it will involve a move up in divisions.

This is completely false - this (as it stands right now) will change VERY little.  

It is certainly a step in the right direction, but unless (until?) it gets tweaked (amped up) not much will be different.

For me personally I think the current system is really great.  I want to be able to continue watching college sports exactly the way it is now for as long as possible.

Therefor I hope nothing changes.

They think hurry up offenses in football are too fast, can you imagine why they don't like basketball??

I'm sure Bert thinks basketball is not safe bc the offense doesnt have to wait ten seconds for the defense to get ready when they get a rebound.

Love the GIF - didnt notice the bench till Jason pointed it out.  Who is that beast that chucks Amedeo across the floor?  It looks like Amedeo is trying to draw a charge call.
