How are we ever going to get any recruits in the future if we keep sending Greg Paulus out to do the recruiting. Dont buckeye basketball fans know who he really is. He is the single worst player in the history of Duke basketball. Only played two years for them. He got ran out of town by Duke fans. I cant believe any recruit would listen to anything this guy has to say. These recruits know. Guarantee it.

In 1891 and physical education teacher was given 14 days to invent a sport that would "occupy" his physical education class during the long, cold New England Winters that would provide good cardiovascular training without too much physical contact and injuries. In the first two years after the invention of the game interest exploded and Kansas sought out Naismith to bring his new game to Kansas where the game grew and flourished. From Kansas basketball primarily went to areas of the immediate subordinates of Fog Allen, Naismith successor, namely Kentucky and the Carolinas.

Ohio doesn't have a long history with basketball like other areas of the country so I just don't see Ohio State doing well in recruiting long term however basketball does provide entertainment for sports fans during long winters which was its original design.

They were going to call it Naismith Ball but Naismith, a humble and devout Christian refused that name. Whites had basketball to themselves from 1891 to the 70's before Blacks were even allowed to play the game at the college level. The first Black players at Houston were in 1969 and most of the SEC schools integrated in the 1960's. However Blacks have dominated since they were permitted an opportunity to compete and all this without affirmative action but open competition.
