Signing day has come and gone. Along with many media sources, we devoted a lot of time and energy into covering the event. Here’s our list of Husky signees, those who will play over at the Palouse and the remaining Div. 1 signees in the state.
So I ask you all: Is too much made of signing day? Are we in the media glorifying the accomplishment of going to college to play football? Only a couple of these student-athletes will be superstars, and a couple of them will probably never be heard from again.
