There is a reason that two of the country's best HS players are leaving IU's backyard and coming to Ohio State. I think that says something about how a lot of people feel about IU. Indiana became great because of one man, not the school.
Basketball is and will always be a secondary sport at OSU just like football is a secondary sport at Indiana. Indiana is a much better baketball job than OSU, 5 national titles dictates that. One big reason that Oden and Connelly (sp?) is leaving the state for OSU is because Mike Davis is not on solid ground and has been put on alert about his job and there is far more pressure on Indiana kids who go to IU. JMO ofcourse
I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.
