- Tom Lemming says that "no one should take it seriously".
- Rivals.com says that "it's all make-believe".
- And it's destroying college athletics.
It's truly sickening the amount of attention signing day gets. Take a look at the list of names... Some of the names will never enroll for one reason or another. Others will never play, and many will never make any impact. And some of the so-called "can't miss" prospects ... will be a huge miss. Do I know which ones they are? Of course not. Nobody knows. Not even the coaching staff, who's jobs depend on it, know. We're dealing with 18 year old kids here, and frequently the issue isn't the 40 yard time or how far he can throw the ball or how much he can bench press or how many "stars" some recruiting geek assigns to him from his parent's basement, but rather maturity and character.
So with that, I sign off for this recruiting season. Wake me up when it's over. (Or if CozBohl takes the Vikings job.... pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease, make it happen....)
