National Signing Day is tomorrow, so for those who are sort of new to how this whole thing works I figured I’d lay out the ground rules for the most significant recruiting day of the year.

Recruiting can bring out some tense emotions in college football fandom, depending on how closely you monitor the game. But there is an underlying message being sent by fans who mock another school’s recruiting class. They have some fear that those kids their school missed out on will come back to haunt them in some way in the future. That, or they wish they had the kind of talent your school just hauled in. They will never admit it, but there is truth to that.
