The late signing date is dead. I remember a time when all the posters treated this as one important day. Some even took the day off to read and talk every Sooner recruit. Oh well, Time changes everything
Personally I could care less if its in Dec or Feb.........but the NCAA has a lot of work to do if the DEC signing period keeps up as is.Why you ask? The biggest conflict to date with the early signing period is the high probability of coaching changes in the month of Dec(latter part of it) and January after bowl season is complete.In my thinking this is falling right in line with the behind the scenes arguments about the "Portal'.These are two conflicts that the NCAA will have to deal with sooner than later.Two total different issues but I can see where they could be tied together in Certain cases.There are already instances where the "players" are using the "Portal" for various reason to (in my terms) avoid competition......ala( Martell@ tOSU)coincidentally after Field transfers to the Butteyes;but supposedly due to a coaching change.
