BEST WAYS TO FOLLOW: In Charlotte, Scott Fowler notes he "sat in ESPNU's studios in Charlotte" during the net's 10 hours of coverage yesterday and "monitored the network's coverage as National Signing Day unfolded." The coverage was "interesting," but Fowler writes, "I also felt like Bill Murray in 'Groundhog Day' -- living the same moments over and over again on Feb. 2." Fowler did note new ESPN analyst Urban Meyer was his "favorite person to listen to on the telecast because of his bluntness" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 2/3). Meanwhile, CBSSPORTS.com's Dennis Dodd wrote Twitter "reached a new level of coolness" during Signing Day. Dodd: "If you were following the right people, you would watch the whole thing unfold before you." Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly "was a key contributor," as he was "subtly selling his program with urgency" (CBSSPORTS.com, 2/2).
