For fear of getting all sentimental and gushy, I'm going to keep this brief and start with a statistic; perhaps my favorite from this National Signing Day. Listed below are last year's top 25 college football teams (plus UCLA) and the corresponding number of comments that can be found in the NSD-related threads from their respective SBN blogs:
I just wanted to thank RN for being the closer that he is. Enjoy your coffee sir! And I wanted to thank Nestor (and the other BN founders) for providing this forum through which the energy and excitement of our passionate fan base radiates.
Okay, I have to add the following:
On the opposite end of the spectrum, BYU's SBN page thread, "Best Ever? BYU's Remarkable 2010 LOI Signers," received a remarkable 1 comment, while UTAHs moderator leads his one-comment thread with, "The 2010 recruiting day is over. Exhausted? I am." Who are you talking to buddy? No offense to either of these blogs, it's obvious that their mods are passionate, but I'm just thinking it must be nice for N to know that people are listening.
