    If for no other reason, we should be celebrating the brief reprieve from recruiting gurus talking about hard leans, soft verbals and silent commitments.

    I will say that my hopes and thoughts that Meyer's indecision about stepping down/coming back would hurt recruiting have been proven wrong. ;D

    Is there anything more boring yet more well read than signing stories?

    So (name the athlete), what made you change your mind at the last minute and take the Trojans over the Gators?

    Athlete: "Well, I just thought USC was a better fit for me personally. I like the new coach and the new direction."

    The truth?
    Athlete: "Well, I was about to sign the bill of sale for my new pickup truck when USC called. They were taking back the Prius and throwing me a Mercedes AND not one, but two hostesses every weekend that I gained over 100 yards in total offense. That's a deal I couldn't pass up."

    Any truth to the blog rumors that the truck dealer was going to report USC?
    Athlete: "Yeah, but then Mack Brown called and wanted mine and two more for a couple of his four-stars."

    I miss many things about my former life.
    Signing Day is not one of them.

    I was hoping that everyone would post their exciting signing-day photos.

    We have a new policy where we're REQUIRED to run signing day photos.

    Gag me.

    Just Division I, or all of them?

    Division II as well. ::)

    (To be fair, we usually don't have a ton of college-bound athletes)

    Stories about verbal committments are worse. Especially when a large percentage of them change their minds between their verbal and signing day.
