The original story was edited three times at least... the first time I don't think said anything about the drugs... then it did... now it says drugs weren't involved.  

This story has been changed more than a scUM fan's diaper.

Haven't seen a game at the Shoe since 1976.  Couldn't afford a ticket so we got into the UCLA game by hopping the wrought iron when the gate guard turned his head.  Left the stadium in a funk after a 10-10 tie.  Drowned our sorrows with 3.2 percent PBR.

Living 1500 miles away from the 614 since then, I would probably be willing to fork out 700 bucks to see us play MSU or scUM at home. As long as the seats were decent.  But I'm not a broke teenager any more.

Hell, a lot of people pay that much just to get to the game.

Guess it depends on how bad you want it.  Supply and demand.  The only thing that bothers me is the wealthier demographic who can afford season tics will tend to be less vocal.  Which is why I am all for letting the students in cheap, and getting them close to the field as possible.

I'm an old fart but still... I'd leave that stadium with severely abused vocal chords.

I feel that were settleling for the 3 Stars just to get our numbers up especially if there from Ohio instead of getting a higher quality 4 star or posible 5 star recruit......  I dont know, maybe its just me and someone can help clarify this for me.......

It ain't about the number of stars... it's about how the coaching staff perceives a kid will fit into their plan.  If you think three stars ain't as good as 4 or 5 stars, you should go back and look at some of the 3 stars we've signed since 2003... James Laurinaitis, Bradley Roby, AJ Hawk, Santonio Holmes, Brian Hartline, Brian Robiskie, Chimdi Chekwa, Zach Boren, Ried Fragel, Kenny Guiton, John Simon, and even Troy Smith was a 3 star in most rankings.

Those guys could play.
