Mike Waller, right, signs up
I was shockingly picked to be a juror in a federal trail today, so my writing will be modified for the next week, maybe less.
Today was National Signing Day, but I did not see any articles featuring any new names coming to Columbia football today. Remember that signing day is mostly for BCS schools and it's actually the FIRST day student athletes can sign letters of intent, not the last.
Of course, the Ivies do not use letters of intent. So whatever they "sign" at a public ceremony is usually just a piece of paper.
That said, incoming freshman Mike Waller signed one of those pieces of paper today and answered some questions about how he made his college choice.
Polian Moves Up
Former Columbia football administrator Dennis Polian has been named Assistant General Manager and Coordinator of Player Personnel for the CFL's Hamilton Tiger Cats. Polian previously worked for the Indianapolis Colts.
Props to Holder
Some of my readers wrote to say that I shouldn't make it sound like new Attorney General Eric Holder isn't an enthsiastic alum. Apparently he is very active and I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear. No word yet on whether he's planning to pardon Jim Garrett.
