The Cincy area is not losing population. Cleveland is however.
Columbus is growing a nice steady pace as well. I'm a native Ohioan.

Columbus is a bigger college town than Dallas or Atlanta, however in that city the museum would be an OSU shrine and they wouldnt put anything Michigan in there. hehe

Go Buckeyes!

Columbus is a bigger college town because there is nothing else to Columbus besides OSU, and thats more a testament to the lack of things to do there than it is to OSU itself. Columbus is pretty darn big for a college town, and one would think that there would be more to do there than just OSU. But anyway.......


Please get of out here with that perennially overrated, weak schedule playing, always getting blown out in bowl games, sorry excuse for a football team I like to call the OSU “suckeyes”. I literally get sick to my stomach year in and year out with the OSU (Notre Dame too) slob fest, I bet there is a high school team somewhere in Texas, Florida, or even south Georgia that could beat OSU, seriously

Are you a psychic because I was thinking the exact same thing, but I don't blame OSU or Notre Dame I blame the NCAA for letting them get away with the cupcake schedule they have every year and Notre Dame shouldn't even be allowed to play in a bowl becasue they are to scared to put their football team in a conference but as a independent they can play whoever they want, go undefeated and whine if they don't get a shot at a national title.

Don't forget the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Metro Area with three BCS teams -- Duke, NC State and UNC. Not that they are considered great football powers, but still....

Like I said before UCLA and USC are in the same CITY...campuses are less than 20 miles away from each other...But you make a solid point.

They'd make a GREAT site for a College Basketball Hall of Fame if it ever moved again.

The Raleigh/Durham area should be the home for the College Basketball Hall of Fame.

Does this exist?

I believe the NCAA basketball hall of fame is in Kansas City, Mo, College Basketball Experience and the Pro in springfield, ill. I agree the college HOF for basketball should move in to the raleigh/durham area.
