Bo Pelini doesn't like National Signing Day. So he wants to get rid of it.

Yes, the Nebraska head coach told ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg on Wednesday that if it were up to him, there wouldn't be a specific National Signing Day. He said it would make offers to prospects mean more and slow down an unnecessarily chaotic process.

"If somebody has offered a kid, let him sign, it's over," Pelini said. "That will stop some of the things that are happening — people just throwing out offers, some of them with really no intention of taking a kid."

"Make (the offer) mean something," Pelini said. "People will be like, 'Whoa, I've got to take this kid now.' It will slow things down for the kids, for the institutions. There will be less mistakes.

"Why does there have to be one specific day? And it will get rid of some of the stuff that goes on, kids pulling the hats and so forth."

Well, Pelini's not alone. The guys on the Thursday edition of SportsTalk Live were equally keen on ridding the world of National Signing Day, saying it would improve the integrity of the recruiting process among both coaches and players. Check out that conversation in the video above.
