MSU Recruiting Weekend Includes Visit To Strip Club?

So this is how Dan Mullen has gotten a rise in recruiting at Mississippi State.  (That’s bad.  I know.  I’m sorry.)

Reports are floating around the web that a few State recruits who were in town over the weekend for an official visit somehow found their way to a Starkville strip club called “The Pony.”

A number of the players involved mentioned the trip on their Facebook pages.  Some supposedly posted photos of themselves at the club.  Smart. 

Sidenote — How many times must I write that social networking sites are going to be the bane of coaches and colleges for years to come?

Robert “Firebird” Johnson posted about the strip club outing.

So did Jameon Lewis.

Ditto Jay Hughes.

So here are the questions:

* Did Mississippi State know about the trip?

* Were MSU coaches or hosts involved in leading the trip?

* Will the NCAA get involved if a school is taking recruits to a strip club during official visits.  (I’ll guess they’re looking into it right now.)

* Most importantly, what else are recruits going to do in Starkville, Mississippi?  (I kid.  Been to Starkville several times.  Like it.  Good barbecue.  Good barbecue in Columbus, Mississippi, too.)
