National Signing Day

Who cares about Groundhoug Day? Today is National Signing Day.

It is the first day a high school senior can sign a binding National Letter of Intent for college sports. National signing day is usually the 1st Wednesday in February.

For parents of great athletes, they are very familiar with this tradition.

But I am sure most moms don’t know or care (prolly too busy counting down to Valentine’s Day!)

But, I happen to be a major SEC football fan and naturally, so is Mo. He loooooves sports, in particular college football, especially LSU football (he has been coached well by his mommy 🙂 )

Today we spent the morning watching all the highlight reels of the guys who signed with LSU to play football.

It also gave us the opportunity to talk about setting goals, working hard, and earning scholarships.

Back when I was in high school, I remember guys just went to the library or school cafeteria and a family member or school paper took a snapshop.

But now, signing day is big business. It is really a major production for top recruits. ESPN does live coverage, top players and schools do major press conferences, and twitter goes wild each time a major recruit signs. It’s sort of like a male equivalent of “who wore what at the Oscars”. Assholes Analysts sit back and yap talk about which kid is going to what school, all their football stats, was this a good decision, etc.

My LSU TIGERS has a great signing day. You can check all NCAA schools here. If you’re a LSU fan, here’s our guys:
