College Signing Day

KRYSTEN OLIPHANT: I’ve had the Signing Day discussion with several colleagues and coaches, and we all agree it’s getting out of hand.

MIKE CUMMINGS: I live in Alabama, which, it could be argued, is currently the center of the college football world.

In Alabama, as in other places around the country, what was once an interesting day for college diehards now borders on — and often crosses over into — the creepy, sad and even dangerous.

Louisiana: Awesome or Not?

KRYSTEN OLIPHANT: Louisiana is awesome. Plain and simple. I’m a Texas girl by birth, and while I have an immense amount of pride for my home state (what Texan doesn’t?) I’ve adopted Louisiana after living here for six years. Call me a traitor, call me fickle, call me what you want — I don’t care. I love this state. Continue reading
