New, 179 comments

THE spot on the Internets to discuss and banter about the latest crop of Golden Gophers!

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It's finally here!

After a year of hand wringing, Twitter trolling, Internet speculation and all around creepiness, National Signing Day hath descended upon us!

Let this be an open thread for everyone to share their thoughts and comments about the 2014 class of Minnesota football recruits. Please, add your contributions below!

Also, this thread will serve as mission control for all the day's activities. Surprise commitments, official signings and the coaching staff's thoughts on the newest Gophers. Stay tuned throughout the day for updates, or simply follow along with the NSD Story Stream.

RIP fax machine toner. Here we go!

A reminder to everyone: follow along with live coverage of the event from Gophersports.com to catch all of the signings as they happen.
