Tomorrow is the NCAA National Signing Day… For the die hard College Football fans this is like the NFL Draft. National Signing Day is a very exciting time of year. It’s a time where Fans can do their own scouting for the next Heisman Trophy candidate. It’s also a time that can make or break a coach’s upcoming season. Every team has its holes, there is do doubt about that. This is a time where Coaches can go out and fill those voids with talented, intelligent young adults. This day also has a big effect on the pre-season football rankings, which are pretty much a shot in the dark anyways. If a school gets a big, talented recruiting class, that can boost them a spot or two. According to ESPN.com, the 2010 Top 10 Best Recruiting Classes are:

The NCAA Football offseason has been full of action. Coaches being fired, stepping down and taking other jobs. All of the action that has happened in the past week includes the Lane Kiffin saga. Lane Kiffin steps down as Head Coach at Tennessee to take the Head Coaching job at Southern Cal. All this is happening less than a month away from National Signing day. This creates a HUGE mess for incoming student athletes. Athletes who commit to schools for a certain coach are now stuck in a situation they do not want to be in, utlimately making their transistion to the collegiate life a bit harder. I propose that the NCAA should have a Firing Peroid… or at least a cut off date to where a school should let a coach go. This would prevent huge debacles with recruiting sanctions and will help students ultimately choose the right situation for themselves as STUDENT atheletes.

I’m not saying that everything should now be excused, but it takes a certain level of humility to publicly admit your wrongdoings, and that, to me, makes him seem more human and likeable than he seemed while he was hiding from the public for the last five years.
Maybe I’m just a sucker for the truth.

How can one not feel bad for Texas Longhorn quarterback Colt McCoy? The Texas Superstar sat out all but 2 minutes and 7 seconds in Thursday nights BCS National Championship Game. Colt McCoy is the all time leader in wins in all of Major College Football! It seemed like fate that McCoy got his chance to win a National Championship in the same Rose Bowl where Vince Young and the Longhorns won their last BCS title 5 years ago. But as fate has it, he would get hurt running the option against Alabama’s vaunted defense. I am not saying that if he didn’t get hurt, the Longhorns would have emerged victorious. I am just saying that I feel extremely bad for this young man who had waited four years for his opportunity only to watch the game from the sidelines. Mark Schlabach from ESPN wrote a great article about the Texas quarterbacks night.
Colt McCoy will rise again with the NFL. I believe some team will give him an opporunity and he will have even more motivation to continue his success at the next level.

Being in technology, I’m constantly being subjected to viral videos. Some good, some bad, but for the most part vastly entertaining. Which brings up the question: If you could meet a viral video kid, who would it be?
I have a few, but here are my top 3:
I have no idea what his name is or why his kid brother has an “owiee” but everytime I watch this I die laughing.
2. Charlie and his British brother – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OBlgSz8sSM
Cute little kids with British accents get me everytime. “Char-leee…that really hurt and it’s still hurting…”
And the number one viral kid I’d like to meet… ::drumroll::
