First reactions to Signing Day
I will follow up after Addazio's Press Conference Wednesday afternoon, but here are my initial thoughts on Signing Day...
1. Making it a BIG DEAL!!!. Some may be put off by the hype surrounding Signing Day. I can see your point. But that doesn't mean it is going away. If BC wants to compete at this level, it means we have to have special web pages for the signees. It means we have to put it up all over social media. It means we have to play the game with the recruiting sites.
2. Holding onto the class. Other than Tarpley's change of heart last week, Addazio did a good job of keeping everyone on board. That is tougher than it sounds. Even the best programs and best recruiters get surprises along the way.
3. Strength in numbers. BC lists 30 recruits on their website. That is a huge class for any school and a mega class by BC's usually conservative standards. There will be attrition and guys who don't live up to their hype, but I am all for big classes. Addazio needs help in many areas. Bringing in a big class speeds up the rebuilding process.
