Great idea! Have an OPEN Division. No real regulations. Do what ya want. No holds barred. Let all the AAU type coaches do their own thing! Level playing field! Sanctioned AAU type of tournament! Big time wannabe, win at all cost coaches versus their own!
Exactly like I said......”Run what you brung”.......the good old NASCAR boys would soup up a junker so that it appears unassuming from the outside but a corvette under the hood......AAU coaches do the same....

Now that we have this solved for Jerry and the rest, we’ll see what happens

I’ve found that guys like Rocketman would rather take snarky pot shots than actually try to constructively solve problems.
Oh trust me ‘boy we’ve tried in the past....over the years you’ve not been a fan of the RC, that’s obvious. I can understand it. It’s not for everyone....we question higher authority or what they perceive is... the OHSAA is a good ol’ boys network.....they have absolutely no use for anyone who doesn’t agree with their methods...they believe they are right/correct, others believe otherwise....you say “tow may tow, I say ta maw tow”......we can agree to disagree in America......Everyone who’s been with the RC for any number of years knows that I’m not a fan of the OHSAA....

You're bizarrely obsessed with attendance and trashing the OHSAA. Why don't you go down to Columbus and talk to Jerry Snodgrass and tell him your ideas on how to pack the Schott. I'm sure he would appreciate your input.

Dear Jerry/OHSAA,
This letter is sent with best wishes but also with a bit of advice. I’ve attended like most, state tournament games since I was a youngster and I know/hope to hell that you’ve noticed the falloff in attendance at your state tournament in boys basketball.....if you haven’t I’m sure your profit-sharing checks have gone down substantially and that you should have noticed. I have a couple suggestions on how to increase your attendance and ultimately your bottom line......#1. if you’re gonna allow all the transfer/living with coaches/AAU teams just be upfront and let them play “club” ball much like girls volleyball is becoming.....these schools don’t really care about their schools or fans, they only care about exposure. Let them play at the Columbus Armory the same weekend and call it the “Flying to the Hoop, Sullinger Play in Classic” and whatever else they call these in season all star games.....”THE OHSAA AAU State Tournament.” Kinda like back in the early days of NASCAR, Run what ya brung. Then allow the rest to play in the state tourney.....also, MOST families can’t afford your outrageous ticket prices. I’m sure you’ll realize after this year’s abysmal figures that someone screwed up royally.....$10 is an acceptable price and would afford a small family to attend....in my humble opinion (which over the years you have clearly not taken as evidenced by all the nasty emails from Timmy I’ve received) this could be a start. I mean, what have you got to lose? Wrestling, swimming, volleyball, track/field, and baseball have either increased or held their own the past 10-15 years. Hopefully you’ll consider these and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Sincerely,
Rocketman

All of this competitive balance, multiplier, up/down nonsense is all a fairytale......the OHSAA has this problem in one sport mainly.....AAU is the reason.....the talent level roaming the halls at ie: Lima Sr. is exceptional....BUT, their coach can’t COACH them up, so goes and gets more talent....same at Africentric, Lutheran Hts etc.....AAU factories is what they are, no more no less.....and people are tired of it but the all-knowing OHSAA continues to stick their heads up each other’s arses hoping it will all go away....sad
