The Recruit Everybody Wants

Homework Assignment

Tomorrow is the first day of the last month of the decade. I think I will be ready to do a Top 10 Games of the 2000's for football next week, but JUST IN CASE I forget or misjudge a game you would put in that top 10, let me know. Hint: at least two of the top 10 games took place this season.

In other news...

A lot of people are doing a lot of parsing of the email Yale Head Coach Tom Williams sent to top alums last week. Some think Williams was trying to hint that he wasn't the one who actually made that fake punt call in "The Game." You can read the full story here.

Ponder this...

What's it like to be 17-18 years old, and have a handful of the most elite schools vying to woo you?

Ask Ndubisi Ezekoye, the speedy QB/DB, (but simply considered an all-around athlete who may play a lot of positions), with a 3.9 GPA and a ton of reported "offers" and at least serious interest from schools like Yale, UConn, Air Force, Army, Brown, Harvard, and yes... Columbia.

I have no idea how close Ezekoye is to a decision. I don't know where he's leaning. And there's no point to mentioning him other than to make this point: in this age of the Internet, a widely sought after recruit like Ezekoye cannot make his decision quietly anymore... and that's true despite the fact that we're not talking about a potential recruit for USC or Notre Dame.

Speaking of parsing, is next month the end of this decade or Dec. 31, 2010 the end of this decade? If you Google it you'll see you pretty much have your choice Jake, so you can do this same exercise two years in a row!
