Snow Day Reading Material

I just measured 5" of snow outside my front door and it's still coming down hard. We don't have plows or salt trucks or road-treating chemicals or snow shovels or any of that where I live, which means I'm going absolutely nowhere today. So if you have some free time like I do, I recommend this feature story from SI's Andy Staples about the challenge of Skip Holtz putting together a recruiting class in three weeks.

SI: How Skip Holtz, South Florida Bulls Saved 2010 Recruiting Class

(I could have done without the "sleeping giant"/Seth Greenberg flashback line at the very end, but other than that it's a fantastic story. As much as I loved me some Jim Leavitt, I can't imagine he would have ever allowed this kind of access to the program's inner workings.)
