I agree that because tOSU has no true rival in many of the cities in Ohio,(even UC recruits more on the East coast then the rest of Ohio) and has more money to dedicate to basketball then pretty much anyone else, it's the top job for an aspiring coach.
IU has history, and a dedicated fan base, but almost no money outside of what it can generate for itself.
Very valid thoughts.
