    hey ben! Really liked your article on MSU's program going to crap if they lost to OSU! Just wondering if now that MSU won you think they may stand a chance to win some games against jesus harbaugh and the great Urban Meyer in the future, or if you still think they'll fade into irrelevancy. Who knows, maybe Urban and Ohio State could fade into irrelevancy over 1 game if MSU could, right? Of course they won't. But for some reason jokes like you like to write garbage articles like that about MSU, and only MSU.

    I noticed there has been some cleanup performed on some of the posts that were on the OSU Kryptonite article. Thank you.

    Good morning,

    My name is Geoffrey Godfrey and I am currently in college at DePaul university. I am doing an article for my Journalism class and I need to have a source to quote in my article (it will not be published.) The article is on colleges scouting kids under the junior level. I was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me or maybe talk to me over the phone?

    If not I wanted to know if:

    Colleges are scouting players in junior high?
    Are colleges illegally talking to players before the mandated time?
    If not, than how are schools like FSU offering things to kids in the 8th and 9th grades?
    Is this causing a rift in college recruiting and further making it difficult for low-end schools?
    Would this lead to teams now getting commits in middle-school and high school football is more of a formality?

    Thank you-

    The article about PSU's Franklin so called blunder was way overblown. Wanting these guys to stay in school is a good thing. the idea is to get a college education. You blew it Axelrod.
