Exciting news, obviously, but players have said this in the past and have later changed their minds (Will Fuller).

Still, a good sign that Kmet plans to be back. The offense needs all the talent it can get with the loss of Claypool, and Kmet is a HUGE piece.

This is huge if he stays. I think with Austin and Lenzy on the outside and this team could be better. At least offensively.

He just wants to set a record for false starts that can never be beaten.

LOL

If Kmet and Eichenberg come back, Austin stays, add Tyree and Johnson - this offense could be VERY good next year.

Phil should be starting. I cannot watch another year of Tommy Book playing QB. Watching our offense right now could put you to sleep.

He needs to. He played himself out of being a 1st round selection, it has not been a good season for him.

I hope both parties decide to part ways after this yr. Book has done well over his career, but heís simply not good enough to be the QB at ND.

Book has only lost 3 games in 1.5 seasons. It's tough to win at ND and a new QB will take too long to get up to speed. There is no guarantee that Phil will win more games and will probably lose more than Book. As a result, Book is the best QB for ND at this time. He just needs another year.

Except playing QB is not the same level of work as building a Program. Imagine if you lost Book, you also lost the returning OL and most of the skill players.

Why would he do this? Take the money! Thatís one lost year of income and youth. The point of college is to prepare you for your career. Heís more than prepared... come back later if you want to. That said...Iíll selfishly enjoy watching him.

I was merely commenting about the QB situation and whether or not the incumbent should be replaced. Not sure what you are talking about regarding the OL and skill players.

In terms of the QB, it seems that you do not think that Ian Book is the best option for next year. You THINK (maybe HOPE) that Phil would do a better job than Book even though there is no real evidence how Phil will do and Book has only lost 3 games as a starter (all to ranked teams, one in the CFP). You are ready to kick Book (who qualifies at the very least as a "good" QB) to the curb despite pretty good success and go with a QB with very little experience because it is your OPINION that Phil will do a better job. Why risk that Phil might do worse than Ian's 1.5 losses per year based solely on your OPINION that Phil MIGHT be an improvement? Are you basing your OPINION on how Phil performed in High School since surely High School results cannot be used to project how he might do at ND?

Should I call you moronic, stupid, etc. because your OPINION is different than mine?

Book has reached his ceiling. Possibly regressed (got figured out) from last year. Nothing wrong with wanting someone new in there. In terms of raw talent, Phil has more. So you tell your staff, go develop this kid. Let him have all off season preparing to be the guy. 9 months of development. Theres no excuse for the staff not to have him ready. I appreciate everything Book has done here. But a lot of his success is from the team and program built around him. Wimbush had a very good record too. We have a lot of talent around the qb position. I think it's time for Phil or Brendon to get a shot

Very happy to hear Kmet plans on coming back next season. Offense is much better with him. Besides being a good pass catcher, he literally is almost like another olineman with his build. Great news.
