CHICAGO -- Ohio State coach Urban Meyer and Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio both strongly denied any allegations they have negatively recruited against Penn State, responding to a subtle suggestion from Nittany Lions coach James Franklin that the Big Ten football powers are continuing to use the programs past against it.Franklin has brought up the difficulty of dealing with opponents using an aggressive strategy against the Nittany Lions numerous times in his career with the program.Meyer and Dantonio were asked at Big Ten media days on Tuesday about an interview Franklin gave to the Reading Eagle last month which appeared to name their coaching staffs as using that practice, which both adamantly refuted.I know we have a lot of reporters here, Dantonio said. Everybodys got a pen. But from my standpoint, I have not said anything negative about Penn State, and hopefully our coaches have not as well. So I was surprised to read that.I dont know what happens out there on the road completely. But its not our M.O., and thats not how we do business.Meyer appeared to be caught off guard when asked during his podium session about the issue. He said Ohio State wasnt delivering any anti-Penn State messages.Absolutely not, Meyer said. And thats the first time Ive heard that. Ill address that with Coach Franklin if that is an issue. Thats a pretty strong allegation that Ive not heard yet. So thats not been presented to me until this moment. Absolutely not.Weve got a great deal of respect for every school in our conference, and we do just fine with recruiting. We dont worry about that stuff. Im glad you told me that. If thats true, Ill address that.Shortly after leaving his morning interview, Meyer confirmed that he met with Franklin to address the matter.Franklin refused to comment when reached by phone, but told Fox Sports that he didnt name who that was using the attacks against his program.He also didnt specify the types of topics mentioned by opposing coaches on the recruiting trail. But Penn State athletic director Sandy Barbour has mentioned as recently as last week recruiters allegedly bringing up the threat of NCAA sanctions tied to the Jerry Sandusky scandal, calling them untrue and a real slap in the face to this profession.The people were competing with -- Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame -- this is just not something they have to deal with, Franklin told the Reading Eagle in June. Although we want to move on, those other schools are not letting us move on. ... Were able to tell kids theyre going to compete against the very highest level week in and week out. What makes it tricky, theyre not having to deal with some of the things were dealing with and working through, which magnifies it. Those programs as well as others know that and use that against us. We have that conversation with every single prospect. We dont usually initiate it, but its coming from somewhere.Meyer and Dantonio both made it clear they dont believe its coming from their programs.By the time media days was winding down, Meyer indicated he and Franklin had cleared the air.Theres no story, Meyer said. I read the article. ... James came up to me and said, I did not accuse Ohio State of negative recruiting. I said, Im good and shook his hand. NCAA Basketball Jerseys Online .

Cheap College Jerseys . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period.The Philadelphia Flyers havent wasted anytime getting into the free agent market and, after already agreeing to a deal with defenceman Mark Streit, they added a top free agent centre before the wider market opens Friday. Numbers Game looks at the Flyers acquisition of Vincent Lecavalier. The Flyers Get: C Vincent Lecavalier. Lecavalier, 33, was bought out of his contract in Tampa Bay and while that was an understadable (and expensive) decision, given the potential ramifications at the end of the deal, it shouldnt completely overshadow the calibre of play that Lecavalier has provided in recent seasons. Over the last five seasons, Lecavalier has finished with between 0.77 and 0.87 points per game in each season, with his 0.83 points per game ranking 38th among players with at least 250 games played in that span. While Lecavaliers per-game production is strong, there is a reasonable concern that injuries are starting to catch up to him. Hes missed 44 games over the last three seasons and its not just one thing -- it was a lower body injury this year, a broken hand a couple of times, and wrist surgery and a shoulder injury before that over the last five years. While none of those injuries would appear to be chronic, there is some evidence that playing more than 1000 NHL games is starting to catch up with Lecavalier. Lecavalier played 17:53 per game in 2013, his lowest time on ice since 2001-2002. Nevertheless, even if the Flyers expect that Lecavalier will miss time with injuries and he scored at 0.75 points per game for a couple of seasons, 0.65 for another couple and 0.50 points per game for the last year of the deal, that would be a reasonable return. It would be bonus if Lecavaliers production was higher than that or didnt slide, but hes played with high quality offensive linemates in Tampa Bay, so hes not getting a major upgrade in that regard (unless he ends up on Claude Girouxs wing), and its difficult to forecast anything but decline for a player entering his mid-30s.dddddddddddd In Philadelphia, Lecavalier should settle comfortably into the second-line centre role, perhaps with Brayden Schenn shifting to left wing and Wayne Simmonds on right wing, and get significant power play time. Lecavalier, who received a $32.67-million buyout from Tampa Bay, signed for five years and $22.5-million (with a no-movement clause), a reasonable $4.5-million cap hit, especially so when compared to a cap hit that was $7.167-million on his previous contract with the Lightning. He was available prior to the free agent market opening because he was bought out of a contract that had a no-movement clause, giving him the option to not go on waivers before being bought out. With Lecavalier departing, Tampa Bay will have to fill their second-line centre role behind Steven Stamkos. The leading internal andidate could be AHL MVP Tyler Johnson, a 5-foot-9, 22-year-old who had 65 points in 62 AHL games (adding 21 points in 18 playoff games) and chipped in six points in a 14-game NHL audition with the Lightning. So ends Lecavaliers time in Tampa Bay, after 874 points in 1037 regular season games (and 52 points in 63 career playoff games) and a Stanley Cup win in 2004. He has a chance to finish out his career as a productive secondary scorer, for a team that isnt shy about spending every year in an attempt to be a contender.
