    Alex Collins, a five-star running back from Fort Lauderdale, was all set to go to Arkansas. Press conference scheduled and everything. Then his mom stole his letter of intent and left the school with it.

    Even this couldn't make signing day interesting.

    My favorite part of signing day so far is this quote from one of the Virginia Tech recruits.

    "I wanted to go in-state, so it was between Tech and UVa. I just couldn't see myself waking up every morning at UVa."
  4. Yeah, cause everyone knows Blacksburg is 3X> nicer Charlottesville.

    The beauty of having Nick Saban as coach is that I don't obsess about recruiting. It's in good hands.

    Uh...I think you missed the point.

    And if things don't go as hoped, you can always claim a national title anyway.

    Rough life of a Tide fan.

    My dog chewing on her rawhide bone and my child softly snoring in his chair is more exciting than anything that is airing on ESPNU right now.

    Why are they still using 1970s technology, the fax machine?

    Because they couldn't find enough carrier pigeons for every recruit?

    Don't worry, I'm sure in the next 3-5 years every kid will declare via Skype or FaceTime...or each school will just host their own webcast.

    Oh, to be so lucky...
