WE FIND IT hard to believe that The Ohio State University can be seeing red -- that being red ink in the athletic department. How can that be? The blame is being placed on the men's basketball program. Athletic Director Gene Smith says the men's hoop team is not bringing in revenue as expected. Ohio State boasts a $110 million athletic budget, which covers some three dozen sports. Despite the revenue shortfall, no programs are targeted to be cut. That is a good thing. Buckeye officials plan to remedy the problem with a $1 ticket price hike in football and men's hoops, excluding student tickets. If that means preserving all OSU sports programs, then that is a small price to pay.
