Saying Ohio State is dirty doesn't dismiss the fact they have a big-time arena and an incredible practice facility with a coach the kids like to play for.
And they have history: more Final 4's than any other Big Ten team.
Michigan's new digs are incredible, Wisconsin has a fantastic arena, Indiana's new practice facility is world-class.
Kids like playing in nice places. Facilities are underrated.
And all the money Illinois is pouring them in isn't putting them ahead of everyone. It's about getting level.
