JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
Why are college football coaches sending recruits 100-plus handwritten letters at the same time?
Is that not a little creepy?
I mean think about it; what do they say?
I’ve talked to a handful of football recruits about this and, while they do admit to getting the “wow this is cool” feeling, they also say that it’s a little weird.
When do the coaches even have time to write all of these letters?
Here’s the more likely scenario; Ian the summer intern is the one writing the letters.
Yep, I’m thoroughly convinced.
Sorry, but you can’t convince me that Duke coach David Cutcliffe really wrote 115 letters to Millard West (Omaha, Neb.) defensive end Harrison Phillips.
Now that more schools are starting to do this, it’s losing the originality factor, which means it won’t be around for long.
Two words: Thank God.
It was truly weirding me out.
