It's finally here. Signing Day has arrived. Ash Wednesday just so happens to fall on this same day since Easter is in March this year (seriously, isn't Easter like Thanksgiving where it is always in April? I'm still a little unsure and feel like it's all an elaborate hoax. Well not as elaborate as say, this.)
So, today a bunch of high schoolers will be trotted out in front of their local media to sign a totally unnecessary contract, well that is unless you are the number one rated quarterback and believe in postponing your decision to hoard as much attention as possible. I say they spice things up since it's Ash Wednesday, throw some ashes on these kids' heads, and let them contemplate the fact that they've just committed a year of their life to playing football for their chosen institution, even if their coach decides to jump ship.
In the spirit of that, I want to be the first to congratulate all the new recruits of Nick Saban, Bobby Petrino, and our favorite here, Dan Hawkins! May you somehow sleep easy knowing your coach is just a huge paycheck or bad season away from leaving you in the dust.
Keep checking back here today, Bronco fans. We'll be bringing you some facts and interesting tidbits on at least some of the recruits being announced today. I doubt you'll find anything quite like it anywhere else.
Oh, and Sean Renfree...just because David Cutcliffe coached Peyton at UT and Eli at Ole Miss doesn't mean he's going to do the same with you at Duke. I mean, it's freaking Duke.
