In honor of this huge Day in recruiting

In honor of this huge day in recruiting, I thought it only appropriate to bring out a little Grantland Rice, and you guys know where I'm going with this. I think we all can indulge ourselves today, in what is a very steep and rich tradition of football that we all love.

 

"I remember the stand at Thermopylae

 

the Greek Guard made one day;

 

I remember the legions that Caesar used

 

To shatter the Gallic sway;

 

And I remember across those years

 

Two banners that crowned the crest,

 

When Yale was king of the conquered East,

 

And Michigan ruled the West.

 

At night in my humble den I dream

 

Of the glories that used to be-

 

Of Hannibal taking the Alpine Trail,

 

Of Drake on the open sea;

 

And then I wander the ancient ways

 

To a dream I love the best,

 

When Yale was king of the conquered East,

 

And Michigan ruled the West."

-Grantland Rice

Dear reporters,

I know you want to copy Mr Rice by only using one sentence paragraphs, but he was writing poetry and you're not making complete thoughts.
