You mean people still want to go to PSU? Almost every expert on the internet said they would be buried for years to come. Oops.

He had been a U commit for a while until Bielema swooped in & undoubtedly negative recruited him against us. His Mama wants him at the U & by gosh I hope she gets her way!

Apparently some butthurt U fans were blasting Golden for losing some key prospects. How soon they forget how Shannon did absolutely ZERO with all his wonderful 4 & 5 star recruits from Northwestern & Booker T High Schools.

Don't worry, the sanctions will kick in in a few years.

The stuff you read was all hearsay and a bunch of crap (which is why tOSU was still recruiting him). It mostly came from the nasty **** tOSU fans were saying about Gibson, which them snowballed. tOSU does not have different academic standards for athletes than any other school has (again, save for Stanford and schools that take props like, say, Marshall -- and I think even Tennessee).

FWIW, this kind of garbage gets thrown around every year, so it's not surprising to see a group of fans get pissy when they miss out on a kid. But make no mistake -- they recruited Gibson hard and he simply wanted to go elsewhere.

I was just reminded of how Orgeron nearly landed Joe McKnight when he was at Ole Miss. Joe McKnight hailed from New Orleans suburbia, Orgeron of course hails from Louisiana, too, and is known as one of the best recruiters in the business, his then RB coach Frank Wilson is extremely highly regarded in New Orleans and also considered a great recruiter (he's now LSU's recruiting coordinator), Joe McKnight's best friend was an Ole Miss commit and the son of a childhood friend of Orgeron.

In other words, he had about as good a shot at McKnight as you could reasonably expect Ole Miss to have and he did beat out LSU who would have otherwise been seen as having the inside track. But he still missed out on McKnight and now you have Freeze getting absolute blue chippers from halfway across the country without an obvious tie to Ole Miss or him. Freeze is either *the* new recruiting genius out there or you gotta wonder..

Either way, with the 3 Zona flips this is the best class that WVU has had since the Geno/Tavon/Bailey class. The depth actually looks better then that class, but we'll see how that holds up in a couple years. A few instant impact players though, especially some of the jucos.
Alford and Smith will be the biggest impacts.

Yeah, they definitely should both be day 1 starters helping take over for the losses of Tavon and Bailey. Best player from the class I have a feeling is going to be Benton, as long as he keeps his grades up and his head on straight. He just finds a way to get through the holes in the protection to get the QB, and does it fast. Some of the highlights looked like watching Bruce on speed.

Yeah sorry, **** like that and like Boyd's mom refusing to allow the coaches at Tennessee and WVU to have in home visits that her son had set up is why it's (IMO) ridiculous for a parent to have to sign an 18-19 year olds letter of intent.

There is a lot of "outside" recruiting being at the center of Old Miss' class. The WR they got, his best friend is at Old Miss and he made a lot of unofficial visits to see him and fell in love with the place. He started to help recruit other kids and tried to pull in a bunch of recruits himself. Nkemdiche's mom pretty much told him he was going to Old Miss and playing with his brother. (Guess that mom in Miami should take some notes.) How they got the tackle I have no clue but it the other two Top of their position players had ties to the school and then helped recruit others.

Three University of Alabama football players admitted to attacking a student and knocking him unconscious during an early morning robbery on the University of Alabama campus on Monday.

According to arrest warrants, D.J. Pettway, Eddie Williams and Tyler Hayes punched a student's head and face and kicked him in the ribs and back area.

Williams and Hayes admitted to the attack, which caused cuts to the victim's face, a mild concussion and severe swelling, according to the warrants.

The player said that they stole the victim's backpack, which contained his Apple laptop computer.

In a second robbery, Williams admitted to police that he punched a student's head and face while Pettway and Hayes stood by and watched. He said that he stole the student's wallet and later used his student identification card to buy snacks from a vending machine in the football player's dorm.

Ole Miss is just taking advantage of the idiotic rule change that took the limits off mailed items and text messages to recruits among other things. I can't see that lasting long if kids are going to be bombarded and have high phone bills. They're already being bugged enough by the recruiting sites.

When faced with deciding between the two loves of his life, for Ben Pike, it wasn't even close. Football would not win this time.

That's how you know his love is true and strong.

When Pike's fiancee, Ashlee Barrett, learned in April 2012 she was battling leukemia, Pike began to prepare for the end of his football career at the University of Toledo. Barrett, a former Toledo basketball player, already had graduated and was back in her hometown of St. Louis, teaching second grade. Pike wanted to be with her as she navigated the long road of chemotherapy and recovery.

When Barrett, 23, learned Jan. 25 that the leukemia had returned, that the short respite of remission was over, the decision was solidified.

Pike, a Mentor High School product, has one more year of eligibility left at Toledo, one more season he could build upon what had been the best of his career as a defensive lineman in 2012. But the 22-year-old will graduate in May and take his education degree with him to St. Louis. He still plans to marry the love of his life June 15, and will be by Barrett's side each day through a bone marrow transplant and recovery from leukemia.
