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.

"A Chicken in every Pot and 5-star recruits in every Class!"

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.

ESPNU and the CBS Sports Net are both doing day long coverage, ESPNU will also be available online through the service, and 104.5fm in Baton Rouge with be broadcasting for most of the day live from the Bayou Bash.

Unlike year's past, we don't have anyone on the riverboat to take in the scene, but if you're going to the Bayou Bash, you can send your photos to us on twitter @valleyshook.

We'll do our best to keep this page updated as official NLIs come in and we'll have the annual jumbo-sized highlight videos post later this evening.

Nationally, there are a few stories to keep in mind. This is the first year the multi-year scholarships can be offered thanks to a change in NCAA rules and most of the B1G will be offering them. Tomorrow will also see the first ever electronic signature of a NLI by a D-2 Women's soccer player as the NCAA takes it's first steps towards ridding the world of the fax machine.
