You're right, 100%. But, the last two coaches have had sanctions, which may mean that it might be more institutional than just coach based. Here's what worries me. And let me be clear about one thing. I LOVED the OSU basketball team this past year. It was the closest thing to following UK when I went to school there in 2002-03 (w/ Erik Daniels, Chuck Hayes, etc...). But, OSU went from getting one top 150 recruits each year to getting four or five. I know that coaches can make all the difference, and I sincerely hope that that is the cause. Also, I have no reason to believe that OSU did anything wrong, I have no proof, and I don't want anything bad to happen, but I'm also a realist who has followed OSU and UK through the years and have often found that when things seem too good to be true...
Maybe here's the problem. The world of sports has let us all down so much lately, with steroids, gambling, recruiting violations, poor officiating, pathetic leadership, and deplorable off-the-field behavior. We now not only suspect the worst, but expect the other shoe to drop every time something good happens.
