Last year UB ran a national signing day special on ESPN 3 and had great live video coverage of the whole process inside of the UB War Room with commentary from Scott Wilson, Paul Peck and Brad Riter. This year there will just be a radio show on ESPN 1520 held at Santora's in Williamsville. Today's poll centers around the special and your thoughts on it.
