Eat More Chicken

I’m still trying to understand why Washington hasn’t declared National Signing Day a National holiday or why I’m too chicken to call in “sick” to work so I can watch the famous hats tricks live on National Signing Day.

My twin brother has used a vacation day for as long as I can remember to ensure that he doesn’t miss a minute of National Signing Day action. Lucky for me, he sent me text updates just in case I wasn’t by a computer or even awake. Sure enough at 7:30AM I received the text “and we’re off! WR Jason Croom is the first to fax in his LOI this morning- go VOLS” to start the day.

A few text later and then BOOOOOM! JUCO WR, Cordarrelle Patterson- the 6-foot-3, 200-pound All-American honors at Hutchinson, Kansas Community College made the BEST decision of his life by choosing the University of Tennessee over Georgia, LSU and Ole Miss.

UT had a live camera on the fax machine that streamed on line. More that 54,000 viewers watched as the faxes came in. 6 foot 6, 375-pound DT from Georgia Military College, Daniel McCullers is on my prospect list. McCullers chose UT over Alabama and Mississippi State and with his “Gigantous” size Dooley might have found a way to keep his job after this season. He was so excited to become a VOL that he was a guest on the Alex Anderson show. His deep southern voice has a touch of hood- he’s the definition of a perfect UT recruit. He’s looking forward to his classroom experience and said he has to “do good and get my studies right”. Well, I’m looking forward to watching this gentle giant go full beast mode on Florida- watch out Muschamp! Welcome to UT kid!

The VOLS missed out on DL Korren Kirven as he picked Alabama. At least he didn’t make the worst decision of his life and sign with Virginia Tech. But even without Kirven and UT coming off a terrible 5-7season, UT still pulled in the 17th best recruiting class according to Overall, it was a great day.

And then it was the sign of apocalypse…

The Chick-fil-a kickoff game between Auburn and Clemson is now on a whole new playing field. Four-star LB Cassanova McKinzy from Birmingham, Alabama picked Auburn over Clemson because Clemson didn’t have a Chick-fil-a! HAHA Kids say the darndest things. But really, is he serious? This is something I would do. I’m a regular at Chick-fil-a and its location is completely out of my way- I call it loyalty. Who said kids from the south we not as smart as kids from the north? Clearly this McKinzy boy is a genius with great taste.

Wait… will the NCAA try to punish Chick-fil-a for being a recruiting violation?

The NCAA should learn from McKinzy and enjoy the simple treasures in life like “eat more chicken” and not focus on all the petty and blown out of proportion rules violations that force kids to leave college football early for the NFL. We the fans need great college football and if that means eating more Chik-fil-a- sign me up!
