  • College football signing day

    What a circus! Internet message boards are going crazy! Athletes are changing their college choices at the last minute. HS coaches are saying one thing and their star players something else.

    THe #1 player in Tennessee, Marlon Brown from Memphis, said to be deciding between Georgia, Tennessee and Ole Miss, wore an Ohio State shirt to school today, which has observers befuddled. It is just insane.

    This is why I don't pay any attention to this until these guys sign on the dotted line. NOT!

    BTW, you can follow everything on ESPNU:

    Brown picks Georgia. What is wrong with that guy anyhow?

      Always curious about those who weren't all that in high school so they end up at Southwest Texas State, Stephen F.Austin etc, then start growing up their soph season and become somebody.

        As often as not, suspect it's called puberty.

          The local fish-wrapper says UF has the #1 signing class. Don't know if that's true or even how one could objectively determine that, but yes, the rich get richer!

            It's all imaginary. Imaginary lists comparing 17 year old kids who live thousands of miles apart. Imaginary winners in an imaginary contest between DI football programs. Kids on national TV announcing that they will grace great universities with their presence by deigning to accept one scholarship among the dozens dangling in front of them.

            What's it all mean, anyway? Committed, signed, letters of intent. Nothing is final even after the scholarship is accepted because kids routinely leave programs and go elsewhere. So why does anyone get excited about such nonsense?

              There's plenty of people pulling in 6-figure incomes off this stuff.

                The NFL is full of greats who played for non BCS schools. How about Big Ben and Kurt Warner?
