Shae Peppler and Amanda Pflugrad share the top five moments from college football’s National Signing Day 2013. A brief synopsis of their opinions in the video and then I will share a few of my top moments below.
The TCS top five are:
5. Calvin Klein Model Signs with SMU
Calvin Klein model Myles Crosby put fame and fortune on hold to play for SMU.
4. Miami signee brings the Swag
Four-Star signee with the University of Miami wore the traditional hat, but the hat said Swag. You can see it in the video.
3. Reuben Foster signs wearing Nick Saban style Alabama hat and vest
The Reuben Foster recruitment was drama filled and it concluded with Foster signing with Alabama wearing a Nick Saban style straw hat with the Alabama logo and vest where the athlete was dressed as Nick Saban.
2. Alex Collins’ runaway mom
Arkansas commitment Alex Collins wanted to sign with Arkansas, but his mom ran away with the letter of intent, according to reports.
1. Ole Miss Recruit commits to University of Ole Miss
Robert Nkemdiche committed to play football at the University of Ole Miss.
These are all excellent moments from signing day. I would include most of these on the list; however, there were a couple of other moments that illustrate what signing day has become—a circus.
First, the University of Tennessee is having a little trouble attracting fans to football games. Honestly, we understand why. The football program has had a tough go of it the last decade. So, when Signing Day 2013 came around a local radio station decided to copy the Alabama Crimson Tide and launch their own Fax Cam Girl.
For those who do not remember, here is what the Alabama Fax Cam looked like just a few years ago before the SEC office prudes led by Mike Slive got involved. Alabama’s Fax Cam Girl:
And here is what this year’s Tennessee fax cam girl looked like. Photo via SDS:
Now, this year’s Tennessee fax cam girl illustrated that Tennessee fans are apathetic. Seriously, you only have a handful of people for an attractive girl wearing what looks like lingerie or maybe a bikini? When you mix an attractive female and football and can’t get much of a turnout, it says much about how Tennessee fans feel.
The second moment showing what a circus Signing Day has become involved an Alabama signee. A’Shawn Robinson inked his papers with the help of an elephant. This picture is via Max Olson’s twitter:
