National Signing Day is an organized day of chaos.
As one of the popular days in college football, National Signing Day is a non-stop news cycle of high school football players signing their letter of intent to the school they verbally committed to, players announcing for the first time which school they will they attend and players flipping commitments.
Today was just like any other signing days with the inclusion a few funny stories, such as Levi Jones trolling Florida and Florida State before committing to USC, and Tae-Kion Reed, who threw a Mississippi State hat across the room before committing to Ole Miss.
These stories were pretty funny to me, but my favorite story of the day is this:
There is a young man named KOBE BUFFALOMEAT.
I have seen my share of unusual names, but Kobe Buffalomeat has moved to the top of the list. Although he has an interesting name that made me giggled, Buffalomeat is more than his name.
He is a 6-foot-7, 285 pound offensive lineman from Lawrence, Kansas, who could be an impact player for Illinois State’s offensive line. According to CBS Sports, Buffalomeat walked away from football for a couple years after joining the program at Lawrence High School as a freshman but continued to play basketball. The football coach convinced him to return to the team in 2016.
I hope Buffalomeat stays healthy and does well at Illinois State, well enough to make it to the NFL. I would love to hear an NFL game announcer say his name just for my childish enjoyment.
