Lack of commitment

LSU lost a commitment today when Mobile, Ala., wide receiver London Crawford switched his commitment from LSU to Arkansas.

And we wonder why 50 percent of marriages end in divorce?

I don't know what the proper word to use in recruiting is but commitment isn't it. Just like last year when Ryan Perrilloux was "committed'' to the University of Texas until signing day and then signed with LSU.

As it is, the final three days of each recruiting season are often highlited by players switching commitments.

Here's a thought: If you don't know where you want to go to school don't announce a commitment.

Amen, Scott. Commitment will soon have to be redefined by Mr. Webster. BTW ... do you think having an early signing period in football would help cut down on some of the de-committing?

I think having an early signing day in football wouldn't change much of anything. There wouldn't be changes in January by kids who had signed early, but recruiting itself would just start all the earlier. We live in an obsessive world. Everything tries to be year-round.
