What is "Clip Reel?"

Simply put: college football recruiting is an extremely intense, involved process, as documented in this ESPN The Magazine feature "Please Sign Here." Signing Day is February 4, 2009. A few years ago on Signing Day, Rivals.Com basically increased their traffic so much, there wasn't even a verb for the amount of increase (i.e. "doubled," "tripled," etc.) We wanted you to give some resources on Signing Day '09 and in general via Clip Reel.
