Here are some of the best tweets from around the country about National Signing Day:
- Bogeythepup Was going to sign today, since it is National signing day, but all I have is email! Fax machines is so last century!
- EmilyBranch National signing day....it might as well be a holiday in Alabama! War Eagle!
- birdonthestreet I thought National Signing Day had to do with Sign Language, not sports.
- stadiumdrives RT @CaptainAnnoying: I wonder if deaf people get excited over National Signing Day, only to find out it's not what they thought it was.
- ScottASpecht Two most overrated days of the year: Groundhog Dog, and National Signing day. Their proximity isn't a coincidence.
- csstieber DON'T HATE, JUST EMBRACE THE CREEPINESS RT @cjane87: national signing day is the day i realize i am really, really pathetic.
- JandDShow National Signing Day > Valentines Day! CASE CLOSED
- SportsCentaur National Signing Day, only day where Dateline's Chris Hansen can't arrest men for talking about teenage boys on the web.
- slmandel Question: is signing day the last thing left keeping the fax machine relevant? They can't figure out a way to do this via internet?

During the same time period programs such as Notre Dame, Florida, Boston College, and Penn State have continued to take some of the best players in the state to far away locations. I know I'm being picky but the one thing that I would love to see Rutgers and Schiano do more is get more of the top kids to stay in state and play. The program has improved its talent base by a 1,000 percent since Schiano took over but in order to be that national power that everyone wants to see keeping five out of the top 10 players in state at home is a most.
