USC running back Ben Axon responded to some of his critics this week. The State newspaper’s Joe Person had a blog on Axon’s troubles last month and some of the comments on the blog were pretty harsh towards Axon. Apparently Axon saw the blog and the comments and decided to respond.
Here is what Axon wrote in context:
