  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

A few miles, especially where no D-1 school exists within the 100 mile radius, shouldn't matter.  The NCAA would be best served allowing 1 transfer per athlete and be done with it. Yes, that makes it tougher on coaching staffs across the board, but it takes care of the fact that coaches "transfer" all the dang time, and the athlete has to stay.  $0.02

Ohio kids at the top are always going to be recruited hard from Day 1 by Ohio State. It's the kids that aren't top 300 (or whatever #) that UFM offered late, or never, that might need to get looked at a bit harder, a bit earlier.  When UFM started recruiting, it wasn't played out on social media for all to see. Today everyone knows who has offers from which schools and when. But the Zach Harrisons and Cade Stovers are going to get the full recruiting experience from the inute the coaches are allowed.

I've turned off games in the 4th quarter when clearly decided, both ways W & L.  Recent's would include Clemson, Iowa & Purdue, clearly beyond salvage when I checked out.

Scholarships and financial considerations have to be a factor, no doubt! 

Like Navy said, back in the day my sister went to Baldwin Wallace at the advice of her then boss. She thought it would be unaffordable, but after she visited, and the financial aid people got done, it was similar in cost to a State school. Of course that was a differnt time in terms of college costs......
