Many football fans consider the Super Bowl a new national holiday but for the hardcore college football fan that day has become National Signing Day. The days, months and even years leading up to the day when high school seniors can put pen to paper and officially commit to a university has become an obsession for college football fans. A huge industry has developed to follow college football recruiting as the interest level in the recruiting process has never been as fervent as it is today.
The staff at Seminoles.com understands how passionate our fans are about our athletic programs and especially our football team. That is why Seminoles.com is announcing the most ambitious and comprehensive coverage of football’s national signing day we have ever undertaken. Starting today we will take you all the way to signing day with exclusive content that leads up to our blow out coverage on February 2.
Over the next few weeks Seminoles.com will be providing feature stories that look at how FSU recruiting was handled in years past, how recruits have exceeded expert predictions, what the recruiting process was like for some of our current Seminole football players and what national signing day evolved into for fans, recruits and coaches. Our Seminoles.com staff will delve into these topics to give you a look back before we shift our focus to the next generation of Seminole football players.
That coverage will carry our fans right up to national signing day. On February 2, Seminoles.com will be the only place where fans will have access to the official word that a commitment is in and is binding with a National Letter of Intent (NLI). As soon as our compliance office certifies an NLI we will send out a Tweet using our official Twitter account (@Seminoles_com). We will let our fans know right away the name of the player who has officially joined the Seminole family.
Once the NLI is certified you can head over to Seminoles.com where All-Access members will be able to gain access to everything that will be going on all day long. If you are not a subscriber already, you can get a one-day All-Access pass for just $5.95 and get the same access of coverage our monthly and yearly subscribers enjoy daily.
The national signing day All-Access pass starts off with video highlights of every player who signs with the Seminoles. For the first time in school history we will also broadcast a live national signing day show that will be a part of the All-Access pass on Seminoles.com. The show will take a 60 minute look at the 2011 class, what holes the new players will be expected to fill and where this group of Seminole signees stacks up with past classes as FSU goes after the mythical national recruiting title. Keith Jones, Sun Sports’ Emmy-award winning analyst for all Florida State University college football games, and Eric Luallen, a former Seminole football player and frequent contributor to Seminole football pre-game broadcasts, will breakdown the class during the live web broadcast, which will run from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
Our national signing day coverage will wrap up with the Jimbo Fisher’s National Signing Day “War Party”. The party will feature all the Seminole assistant coaches who will give fans a top to bottom break down of every athlete signed for 2011. The party is open to fans but if you cannot be there we will have the event for you streamed live via Seminoles.com All-Access. All-Access members can watch the entire event live. If you are not a current All-Access subscriber, your one-time fee of just $5.95 will get you access to the biggest Seminole recruiting party in America as well.
