It's National Signing Day, the annual televised hat fitting during which top high school recruits announce their respective college programs. It's also a day for college football fans to praise or accost freakishly athletic teenagers, depending on where these guys decide to
continue their education play.
This morning, NFL-ready defensive end and No. 1 overall player on the ESPN 300, Byron Cowart (see highlights below), announced that he'll be playing at Auburn, a choice that surprised many in his native Florida, especially since the Gators were considered by some to be the front-runner entering Wednesday.
As Paul Finebaum's learned the hard way, hell hath no fury like an SEC fan scorned. As evidence, see the onslaught of tweets populating Cowart's now-defunct at mentions.
I hate Byron Cowart the most out of any recruit ever. The chucky doll is a Florida thing. You're going to Auburn. Douche bag.
