Just another day at the office

We'll, another signing class is in the books for the Commodores.

You know, I've always wondered what Signing Day is like for the coaching staff as they wait on each prospect to send in their National Letter of Intent.

I can't help but remember the scene from the movie Office Space when the office printer breaks down.

"PC Load Letter??!! What does that mean?"

Since it probably didn't go down like that, I thought I'd find out the real answer straight from Coach Johnson.

“We stared at the fax machine for about thirty minutes out of every hour,” Johnson quipped, “just waiting for a fax to come over.

“It’s kind of a relief. It’s kind of an excitement. You look forward to getting those guys in here because you have spent a lot of time with them. But it’s also the start of next year’s (recruiting), so you just continue on.

“You do have a lot of pride and satisfaction in bringing in a class that we think is very good. Our coaches work extremely hard at it. I can’t even tell you how many letters have been written, film has been watched, and games have been attended. It’s just a good feeling when you put all that work in and you get a guy that you really like. We really like all of these guys.
