Next fall's QB may well be one of the freshmen signing tomorrow.
Lafayette's goal is to contend for and win titles.
If Garrett can lift this program back into contention, and that is a heavy lift, then 50 alumni can put up $500 each for the base of a home playoff bid.

Always excited for signing day. Whether it was with a pit in my stomach and both hands in the fax machine making it earns it keep one day a year or sitting here with the GoLeopards coverage in the background at work.

Coach Garrett didn't have a lot of time to make too many changes to the class, but I am excited to at least hear is take on the guys coming in and some of his plan.

Btw - love that shot facing the home stands. Must be from a drone, looks so good.

M. Panto left.....so many comments missed with all the blips, skips, ...Just try to watch the Cole Northrup portion, ridiculous. The first few minutes of Coach Nudelberg is an example of what we're complaining about.  Important stuff re numbers that I would love to have heard.  Mike's closing comments, important, undecipherable. A shame.


No mention of Kerstetter.  Never had twitter confirmation of the newspaper statements of his commitment.

JJ Younger went through his HS signing day ceremony. Don't know what the story is there.

No mention of the transfer.

Gary did say there are guys we will be able to talk about in the future.

Love the comments on our OL guys. JG seems legitimately impressed.  Nice group!

Would have been better off not broadcasting anything vs. that.  

After years of doing it right and being really proud of the production that was unmitigated crap.  An understatement to say not the way to welcome in a new coaching staff or new enrollees.  If I were JC, Dennis, Mick et al, I'd would be both furious and embarrassed.   Same goes for Bruce and Alison.

That deserves a huge apology to every kid, coach and fan who supports LC. And in world outside academia someone would be looking for a new gig by this afternoon.

And yeah, a ton of missing names vs. what we had expected.

Right on, seenalot!  The measly couple hundred I was gonna send in tribute to the staff's effort is staying here. Too frustrated.  Such great people - Gary, Mike, JG, Nudle, the admin guy - with so much passion and info, wasted.

I heard various numbers 17 then I believe 19.  I hope JJ and Douglas are yet to come. W/out them the athleticism and speed in the group is largely diminished.

I'm such a hopeless schmuck of a fan, I'll give them another shot tonight with Coach JG during the bball game.

I turned it off after 10 minutes.  Completely unwatchable.  I have to wonder if anyone on the production end actually monitors the feed as it goes live.

The replay doesn't work, either.

And what's equally maddening is they are too naïve to take the crappy replay down until they get it cleaned up or redone.  

The world is not viewed solely through the eye of Twitter folks.  So while that aspect was done reasonably well, the way most of the world over 22 years old sees you (read those who donate) looks awful and amateurish.

My son feeling our pain, emailed me:

Couldn’t really follow anything Lafayette did today – cant find a list of signings anywhere and the video feed was a disaster.  Kept flipping backwars then forwards.  So I would hear the same sentence 3 times then it would fly forward and I had no idea what was going on.  Saved myself a tumor and turned it off.  Sounded like they were talking about OLineman though….thats good I guess.

Last year they posted a picture and info on every kid they signed on instagram…was hoping they would do the same this year////

I forwarded the bio section, apparently he liked the instagram effort last year.

How many LC video feeds have to end in frustration before they do something? We apparently employ  a "Video Production Manager."

OK, guys. Just went back to replay for third time (desk-top) and when I again adjusted the quality from auto to 270p it held. While the picture quality is poor the sound is audible.  I'm gonna give it a another try.

...how many folks do you think would be that patient.  You have an interested viewer for a very limited time and then they move on.  It doesn't work right you lost them.
