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.

Haha, this is the first time I've visited your bio blurb page--and now I know why I was reading some of things I was reading. Anyway, well, done. Bet you never thought back in September and October you'd be covering THE nat champ.
Ben, years ago, I was in San Diego Cal. for a short stay. I was able to go to a few sports pubs during my visit. Just like sports pubs here in Florida where I currently live. I ran into a bunch of Buckeye fans, and a few alums. While gathering information from my fellow Buckeye faithful, I came to the conclusion that Buckeye Nation is very strong on the West Coast, as it is every where else nation wide. Especially here in the sunshine state.
What I' am getting at is this. Why is it that Ohio St doesn't recruit very well out west? IMO, California especially can be a gold mine for the Buckeyes. I know that there is limited scholarships each, and every year. But I know that OSU can most definitely snag some 5 star talent out there.
I give Coach Meyer all the props in the world as a recruiter. But let's face it. He's in Saban's shadow as everyone else is also. I really do believe that Cali is the difference maker for Meyer. It can really put him ahead of Saban. It can be the difference between a top 3 class every year, or the number1 class.
Buckeye Nation is strong out there. Ohio St. should be spending more time out there. Just phone calls, and offers will not cut it.
Look forward to your insight!
