I'm glad I wasn't alone.
In talking with most of my colleagues at The Opening, we all pretty much had the same thought: This. Is. Great.
Though I know what most of the NCAA enforcement staff looks like, I didn't see anyone in Beaverton but was told someone from the organization was on hand to look around. Everyone always asks me if I see "shady" people at recruiting events and to be honest, there was really only one person who I saw around the sidelines that looked out of place.
