Default Book next year

If book wants to come back next year, sign me up. I wasnít necessarily in this camp at the beginning of the year, but Iíve seen enough now that Iím on board. Give Buchner a year to get his footing.

I canít imagine he will, but weíll see. I think a transfer is the way to go, and I really think McCaffrey is the guy.

I presume you think a transfer is the way to go if Book doesn't come back. If Book wants to come back, I don't see a scenario where Kelly says no to a QB who would be starting for a 4th year, one with a > .900 winning percentage, and instead goes with a transfer. Now, if Kelly says no because it's time to move on from Book, it's because he has confidence in Clark or Pyne. I just don't see a QB transferring in in the near future. Why do you think a transfer might be the best route?

Quick question. Why would Book leave if he has eligibility? He will be a late round pick no matter what. He is small, and lacks arm strength. I think if he has eligibility he would be dumb to not come back.

Are you joking? Book doesnít have an NFL future and heís Kellyís guy. Barring something unforeseen, Book will be leading this team next year.

Heís playing confident, is accurate and is a damn good athlete. Iíve been critical of Book but we can do much worse, and we have. Guys a winner.

Maybe Book wants to graduate and move on?
At best heís a late round pick and a career back-up.
Maybe he has other career plans, or maybe like Rees he is thinking about coaching.
It doesnít matter to me what he does after this year.
I do think his staying would create problems with the three quarterbacks in the ND pipeline. None will develop if Book is QB for all but 8 plays a game next year.

Playing QB at this level is physically draining. He knows heís not playing in the NFL. Iíd like to have him back next yr, but I think heís ready to move on.

If he wants back, by all means he's welcome. Next year is setting up really nicely to win it all. No Lawrence at Clemson, no Fields at O$U. Our "big" games are all at home.

Then let Buchner get a year under his belt watching/learning, and then he takes over in 2022.

Thereís 0.0% chance he comes back.

According to insiders, he and his family have already said as much.

Is this because he wants to test the NFL waters? I just find this surprising as I donít think heíll have a ton of interest.

I would also never speak in absolutes, lots can change between now and spring.

Less about that, more about the physical toll it takes on your body. He knows heís not playing in the NFL, and prolonging his college career doesnít make sense.

Book loves the game and if he is not going to get picked up in the NFL, he won't leave yet. He's a gamer and loves to play QB. I say (IF he knows he's not NFL quality) he stays.

He can always take up the OC position once Tommy retires at 26.

Quite right. If it was me and I didn't have a decent shot at the pros, I wouldn't hesitate to come back for another year. For the love of the game....

Totally agree with you. People forget how it feels to be 22 and on top of the world. Thatís right most of of never experienced that. Graduating school and going to sit behind a desk all day is what a lot of us looked forward to.....not Ian

He is not going to improve his draft stock significantly by coming back for a 6th year. Even if he sets the world on fire next year, he will still be a QB with limited size, accuracy, and arm strength. He just isn't an NFL level QB, which is ok - he is proving to be a very good, potentially great, college QB, which is all ND needs this year.

He has been at ND for five years. He has given everything he has to the University. He's not coming back - again, that's been reported by insiders who have well connected sources to him and his family.

There is very little reason for him to come back. He loses his entire offensive line. He would be a sixth year senior. The sooner he gets out of school, the sooner he can move on with his career and start earning money doing something productive, football or not.

I suspect he will be a camp arm for an NFL team and may eventually follow the Tom Rees Coaching Plan. Playing for Notre Dame for a sixth season delays his earning capacity and life.

Yes, he is in grad school. But the NCAA is waiving eligibility in 2020 so players will not use a year of eligibility, so he could come back if he wanted to, I believe. But if he takes ND to the Promise Land and win the NC. I think he would ride into the sunset a very happy camper with that capo to his career.

Any idea which grad degree he is pursuing? He is listed as a Marketing Major so perhaps he is working on an MBA. Who knows, maybe he wants ND to pay for his second year of B-School.
