    Here’s a story I can get behind. Every year I’ve seen “National Signing Day” (note the caps) become a bigger and bigger deal. High school kids announcing on national television where they’re going to college. Then, when they get there, behaving like the rules don’t apply to them and everyone wondering where their sense of entitlement comes from. The whole recruiting process is grotesque.

    Prepscoop? I think I took that before my last colonoscopy.

    In P2 shouldn’t they just give these guys bigger trays? Tru is trying to jam that orange on to his overflowing tray and the dude next to him is straining from the weight of all of the food he’s trying to carry off.

    Is that an extra human leg holding up the bench under Tru in P3? And who left that behind?

    I guess Tru isn’t on any sort of training diet. His tray is loaded up like Bluto’s in Animal House. He even has the big glob of cottage cheese so he can do the “Get it? I’m a zit” routine. And then we finally get to the climax of this whole story line….. “FOOD FIGHT

    Looks like the summer camp didn’t hire Mop to do those floors. There seems to be a missing high gloss finish on those cafeteria stones.

    Recruiting is quite similar to the oldest profession in the world.

    @Mr Reality

    Beat me to it on the orange, but I thought P3 was just another example of a character in this strip talking out his ass.

    In P1, Tru(e) clearly disapproves of this witchcraft the Satanists call “the Internet.”

    One of the top QB’s in NC announced he was going to Duke. Then about two months later it was ‘No I’m going to Carolina because ‘Roy" says I can be a preferred walk on in basketball." Not the “Roy says”…… HS kid already calling a Division I coach by his first name! I guess I’m old school but that just doesn’t sound right to me.

    The fat wristwatch band trend is sweeping the country now, it’s not just a Milford thing if you notice the kid in P2. And speaking of fat, today’s Mopped Up Thorp is phat. (Is that the right term? Is that what the cool kids say?)

    The Royal Navy had the best recruiting technique. Get you drunk, hit you on the head and ‘press’ you into service on His/Her Majestys’ fleet. Perhaps that was/is the fate of the Thorp siblings.

    That’s what happened to that QB prospect from Shang High.

    @TheBrown StarFish: No, I think that’s a calf’s leg, note the hoof instead of a foot. This camp is responsibly run, nothing goes to waste. Maybe its Camp Runamuck.

    P1- Tru is sporting the Jimmy Clausen “jerk face”.

    You all know the type…the kind of squished faced non-evolved cranium that certain kids had and who were always complete dicks…
