"I went through a lot when I was younger so therefore others should be punished more severely when they do something wrong."  Did I summarize that correctly?

No, the point is not that he passively "went through" something.  He is saying that, if a 17-yr-old can take on adult responsibilities with adult consequences, then we shouldn't treat 20-yr-olds as quasi-children.

I basically agree, but I don't see how it leads to the conclusion that the players deserve a 4-game suspension. 1 game "seems" right to me.

From the Michigan State side of things, the talk about pulling Cupp's offer centers on him making the trip to Ohio State without advising the Spartans' staff first, or doing it without their consent. On our FNL visitors' list, Cupp was added on July 21st, so how Michigan State missed him making the trip I can't be sure.

"Hey coach, you could have learned I was going to FNL by reading 11w.  Why would you expect me to personally tell you I'm visiting another school to earn an offer?"  Ridiculous.

If you commit to a school and tie up a scholarship, it's not asking much for you to grant a coach the courtesy of a phone call prior to shopping around for a better spot.  If that's why Dantonio pulled the offer, I don't understand the complaints.

Walker has been to Rutgers, Alabama and Auburn in recent months, and this trip to Arizona State – expected to run from this evening through Sunday – is another step in what's sure to be a long journey until signing day (or early enrollment in January, if Walker is able to do what he'd like to). 

The Buckeyes know that they have to recruit every committed player as if they're not committed and Walker, along with Terrell Hall (who just visited Bama again with his good friend Abdul Adams) especially, fit that bill since they're from out of state.

When you recruit players like Ohio State recruits, especially – as I said – from out of state, there's going to be a challenge to keep them. The Buckeyes are better equipped than any team in the country to handle a recruiting "attack" 

Stay the course, don't fret. Every little thing, is gonna be alright.

From my understanding, Urban was telling Jarret that he was only taking 1 QB in this class(15) and was upset when Urban announced on NSD that OSU had taken in two.

OSU had two QBs verbally committed since November, and everything written about them indicated that OSU was working hard to keep both in the class.  Unless Urban told Jarrett he expected Gibson ultimately to flip, I don't know how to make sense of what you wrote.  (Not meant as criticism, maybe that's what happened...)

it's dirty a RB coach does his job through NSD and then leaves to better his family income???

It's easier to make sense of the complaint if you state it correctly.  No one is bitching at Drayton for taking another job.  The issue is that he recruited Weber in part on the basis of being his future position coach when Drayton apparently knew he would leave the day after the LOI arrived.  At the very least, he knew he had an interview lined up that could lead to his immediate departure.  Weber should have been told in advance.
