Is it me or is the announcement coming early?

I seem to remeember having to wait beyond signing day a week or two (or more) before we got official word on the class details. If that's so would that not seem to suggest they have hit all of their goals and hit them pretty early on? And given that there are ususally 3 or 4 stragglers that join the class over the next month or so this could really be a good class for the Pards. I'm sure Carney will call into question their decision making skills giveing the magnitude of the decison and the haste they have demonstrated in making such a decision but I am pretty optmisitic.  Very Happy

It's you.  Frank has been a day 1 guy for a number of years now.  Someone on this board once said that it's because he wants the kids to feel the same as big time BCS recruits by getting day 1 publicity.  On the Lehigh board they state (accurately?) that their announcement is delayed because Frank has already laid claim to day 1.  Who knows.  All we can say with certainty is that signing day has been THE day at Lafayette for a few years now.  This year's "party"/TV event is new however.

Particularly optimistic since they're throwing a "party"--that's a first and a great sign.    I just checked the archives, last 2 announcements have come ON signing day which were the 4th and 6th of Feb.   I was impatient last year when the release came late in the day. LOL.  Frank apparently likes to get it done. Looks like a strong class (yes, we say that every year) with a lot of kids having gotten looks at the "next level".

Frank is a great PR man.

He knows kids love this signing day hoopla and it does add to the feeling of a big time program.

I think its pretty cool.

Well I stand corrected. It must have just seemed to take forever. Looking forward to the big announcement.

Patience, lad.  It will again be "late in the day."  The TV thing is, I believe, scheduled for 5:00-6:00, and I would doubt if any cats get out of their bags before that.  I'm thinking that any local (whatever that means) signees will be in attendance.

I'll be watching and waiting for your questions from the gallery. "Coach, why DID we run the ball 4 times up the middle with our 3rd string TB in the Lehigh game."   No, no, just recruiting questions, please, sir.
