Signing Day:  This is getting to be a bigger and bigger day each year with High School players signing to play at major colleges.  Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State to name a few are all trying to get similar players to come to their university.  Student/Athletes that not only have great athletic potential, but, should have good academic standing to compete in the university academic setting.  The real value of playing college sports should not be just so that they can get into the NFL, NHL, NBA or MLB, but, to go professional in other things like engineering, law, becoming a physician, a teacher, a government worker, a social worker or anything else that will help society become a better place.  This should be the real reason why a student/athlete should play sports in college to become a leader of our society and make our communities a better place to live.  These values, these qualities are what drove Ara Parseghian and Bo Schemblecher to become the leaders of the programs that produced such professional people and not just professional athletes.
