"This is really important to be here," Lewan said. "I'm here to give back and help out my teammate."
I have to imagine twitter is only going to ramp up the intensity between players. Sparty recruits are already going after Michigan recruits on twitter in the aftermath of the Peppers commitment on ESPNU. Some of them have been deleted now, but the internet never forgets.
Another reminder do not tweet recruits.
@DamionTerry: You guys are juniors in highschool talking about running College Football? #SaveThatShit
@DamionTerry: man these fools who are committed to Michigan in '14 talkin about they're going to run shit....haha
@dhicky695: they just don't know man
@DamionTerry: I just don't get it lol I guess college football is easy
@dhicky695: hah they first have to go through senior year, then graduate, and I can guarantee some decommits coming from Michigan
@PCitySpartan: I think the hate for U of M will get worse when I'm in Lansing
@PCitySpartan: To Be Honest Drake Harris Is Like Benidict Arnold To Me..
@PCitySpartan: Sick Of Hearin About U Of M..Talk About The Real School Of Michigan.#State!
Even Jamarco Jones took notice:
@jjones_73: Its crazy how rivalries between schools are already coming out through recruits! #UM #MSU #OSU #ND
Wow. 2013 MSU commitment Jay Harris decides to turn down a scholarship to MSU for a rap career. I thought it couldn't get lower for Sparty after Drake Harris and Lawrence Marshall...
From Ace's twitter:
Welp. RT @MSUDanK Report: '13 signee Jay Harris not coming to MSU, decides to focus on his dream of being a rapper instead
Story from Philly News:
YouTube channel with his "hit" single:
I took a chance and waded into the depths of the RCMB for a little Saturday afternoon enjoyment after the Marshall commitment. Meltdown is in full effect. I found this gem that made me literally LOL:
I don't know what's in the water in AA, but it's making kids believe whatever it is they're selling. I'd be very interested to see what the average visit is like down there. Between the dump of a city, the hideous girls, and a disgusting, inarticulate slob of a head coach, I'm surprised they can even put together a recruiting class - let alone a top ranked one. Nostalgia for the 1800s should only be able to take a program so far in 2013.
Enjoy your Saturday, everyone!
The highlight of Sparty's year is upon us: the release of their Arby's "collector's" paper cup. From my favorite Sparty fan with a message for Michigan at the end:
In case you missed last year's cup:
MSU's Derrick Nix was arrested Monday night in East Lansing on charges of operating a vehicle with the presence of drugs and marijuana possession, according to East Lansing 54-B District Court records.
UPDATE (quote from Izzo):
“Based on the information we have received, Derrick Nix has been suspended indefinitely from our basketball team, and his future with our program is uncertain. He made an irresponsible decision that has put his future with our program in serious jeopardy.”
