What’s everyone’s opinion on this day?
Me? I have mixed feelings. On the one hand I think it’s a cool day as student-athletes get recognition for their outstanding achievements and are rewarded with scholarships to colleges.
Yet on the other hand, I hate how the big media types (ESPN) have put so much hype into this. All the ranking of top classes, players and such is, to me, a waste of time. These kids haven’t played a down of college ball, yet we’re already predicting what they’re going to do in terms of impact on the college level.
There’s also no need for these kids to have press conferences to announce where they are signing.
Like I said, it’s a great achievement for the kids, but it’s become way overblown.
