National Signing Day Open Thread '10-Like the Bayou Bash but without the uncomfortably long lines for free booze

<em><strong>"A Chicken in every Pot and 5-star recruits in every Class!"</strong></em>
"A Chicken in every Pot and 5-star recruits in every Class!"

WARNING: For the next 24 hours, you may see printed words that turn out to be completely false. This is Signing Day. It happens. Hang tight and we'll all get through this together.

Ready to watch high school seniors embarrass themselves on national tv while helping that small mom-and-pop sporting goods store in their hometown make the hat sales quota for the month? It's signing day and ATVS is ready to party.

But not literally. We're all working just like most of you. We'll do our very best to keep the tally board up to date and keep an eye out for late breaking switches and shenanigans.

Tomorrow is also free reign for specious rumors. Got a hot tip but your only source is your mother's brother's cousin's boss's son's crew driver? Use the FanPost or FanShot feature and we'll put it right here on the front page. Sure it could turn out to be blatantly incorrect, but half the fun of signing day is chasing down insane rumors.

And what if you have decided to burn a sick day now instead of next Monday? (plan ahead people) will work from most phone browsers, so feel free to comment from the crowd or send us pics or video's you take yourself.

Remember it's your last gasp of football till Sunday (man, that feels great to say) It better be enough to hold you till spring ball in late March.
