After many years of chasing Jerry Tarkanian, who was at UNLV at that time, the NCAA was faced with a dilemma.  Kentucky had been caught sending $10,000 in cash to a recruit via a mail courier at just about the same time the Cleveland State basketball program had come under investigation (after defeating a Bob Knight coached Indiana team in the NCAA tourney).  When a reporter caught up to 'Tark' to ask him what he thought about Kentucky being caught, Tark replied, "I bet the NCAA will be so pissed at Kentucky they give Cleveland State the death penalty."  

The NCAA knows who pours money into their coffers.  The likes of Cleveland State aren't among them and get little mercy.  The Kentucky's and NC's do.

Congratulations to both Elijaah and Zach.  These kind of stories always seem to be ones we in the fan base enjoy most, two young men overcoming the odds and officially and publicly being rewarded for their selfless contributions.  Go Bucks!

The collective return of character, not characters, to the basketBucks is a most welcome sight.  The 2018 recruiting class, while a critical piece to the puzzle moving forward, is not as important as the work Coach Holtmann and staff put in these last two months, imo.  Expectations are firmly in place.  Hope has returned to the Schott.  Go Bucks!

RedsBuckeyeBoy...Thanks for the response.  Like you, I just want to see the basketBucks play like their asses are on fire.  To me it's inexcusable to not play hard.  IMO, that reflects a selfish team unwilling to sacrifice for the greater good.  Go Bucks!

It brings me no joy to celebrate the failures or shortcomings of others.  I'm glad no one was hurt and hope this is a one-time event for Hand.

It's hard to go wrong with a good kid from a good family, with skills, is 6'10", and who is just starting to grow into his body.  It's surprising to me that Jaxson hasn't garnered more attention in recruiting prior to now.  I'd love to see him in Columbus.  Go Bucks!

Ramzy...Thanks for a great tribute to Dennis Gurdian, a man's man who was passionate about everything he did and to those he loved.  RIP, Dennis.  My condolences to Sammi, her kids, Ramzy, and the many whose lives Dennis touched.

The most exciting parts about Connor Fulton joining the basketBucks is that it shows how much work the staff is putting in to make things better right away and the relationships they have forged with student-athletes while at Butler.  It's also a very cool thing for me to see a walk-on like Connor follow this staff to OSU.  That speaks to his commitment to the staff and will give OSU another 'team-first' man.  Go Bucks!

I'm glad to see Ahrens getting offered by the new staff and would love for him to be a Buckeye.  Go Bucks!

To whom much is given much is required.  While I've always been a Zeke fan, his continually putting his reputation and career in jeopardy is foolish.  I hope this incident proves to be have no substance but more importantly serves as a wake-up call for Zeke to not put himself in spots where he has so much to lose.  Go Bucks!
