  4. My only complaint on the speech is to tell the guys, if you are willing to work hard and do it my way, then I’ll work with you are at least try. To just say leave. F him. If I was a college player and chose that school and wanted to continue to play there, and now I got this jackass telling me to leave. I mean, what if a guy is a sophomore and his credits don’t transfer over to his now second choice of a school? Also, I thought he was promoting HBCU’s and the community. Hard to do when you leave or take all those recruits with you. I don’t know. Just looks bad to me to some degree.

  5. Anybody who’d want to play for Deion besides a hs cover corner who hates making contact would be stupid to go play for that moron. I’ve never seen someone directly avoid more tackles than that jackaxx…. Deion is every part of a selfish primadonna and won’t last…

  6. Fiske and McCullough would be a homerun for the DL. Fiske appears to be Irish and should decide around New Years McCullough seems to be down to ND and Ohio State. There are some they say Oklahoma is involved, but there are some insiders that do not trust the Oklahoma hype around him. IB says it is 50/50 between ND/OSU

  7. Dasan McCullough, son of ND RB coach Deland McCullough is now in the portal. Edge rusher who had 4 sacks, 49 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss as a freshman...Does ND have the inside track? Apparently, OSU and USC are being considered as well. Would be nice to get a guy like that to South Bend.

  10. What would you think of Liufau? Though I can’t say I was impressed with his incessant need to run into a brick wall every time. But coaches seem unwilling to sit him.

  11. Pyne had a better team around him as well. The oline and running game were non-existent the first two games; every ND fan knows this. Would love to see Buchner behind a line that could actually protect him. Pyne had plenty of terrible games and numerous awful passes to wide open receivers that we all cringed at...

  14. Oh absolutely. I’d tell Buchner to ball out and sling it. Don’t worry about Int’s. We need to evaluate you as a passer. Go for 400 yards if you can.

  17. Call me crazy, but I actually think the QB situation at ND is one of the most appealing parts. Your competition would be an injury prone QB that struggled mightily in his first two starts and so far has only shown to be a run-first guy. Then, two freshman. That's about as good of a path of least resistance you're going to find on a team with realistic playoff aspirations. Combine that with what I can only assume would be an enticing NIL offer upfront, PLUS, can you imagine the offers that would roll in if we had a quality QB at the University of ND?

  18. Also, to compare to the recruiting juggernauts regarding Top 100 prospects, using 2022 as an example since 2023 is not set, here are how the top teams did: Alabama: 12 Top 100, including 6 Top 50 Georgia: 11 Top 100, 8 Top 50 Ohio State: 7 Top 100, 4 Top 50 I think the OSU 2022 class is very realistic at ND under Freeman. ND has 6 Top 100 and 2 Top 50 in 2023. Add in Keon Keeley and Dante Moore, and that's 8 Top 100 and 4 Top 50. It shows the significant difference getting/keeping those two additional elite recruits would have had on this year's class. I think ND can get there with Freeman.

  19. Obviously the amount of transfer portal players is astonishing, and when combined with EE, and NIL stuff, roster management really is the Wild West at this point. And, while there may need to be some bumpers implemented, this seems like one of those systems that will iron itself out in the next few years. As soon as the NIL money dries up for HS recruits and "potential" or P4P (I have a hunch it will after endless busted recruits flame out with millions in booster money and the boosters with nothing to show. You think TA&M boosters are lining up after their season and multiple kids leaving with their bag in hand?). Also, as soon as these kids leaving for greener pasture find nothing but a mud hole, they may not be so eager to leave their current situations. The thing I don't see changing is big dollars being thrown at big time college players to transfer. Some will take the offer, some will use it as a bargaining chip. I'm all for the players getting their piece of the pie, but I can't imagine being a coach trying to field a good team and not knowing who is coming or going from one day to the next.

  21. This new reality is really starting to feel like the NFL where there are 2 waves to upgrade your roster. In the NFL where you first address needs in the draft, then supplement through free agency, here you focus on locking up your incoming class early then supplement through the portal. I'm really glad to have someone like Freeman at the helm, as his work ethic shaking loose not only recruits but portal residents could really be an advantage. If we can start bringing in some undergrad transfers, that would be a game changer.

  23. I like Fiske, too. McCullough is listed 6'5, 225 @ 19 years old, though; more a true edge projection to me. Fiske seems more of a journeyman would provide good depth across the board. But ultimately, yeah, do they make the ND "grade" in academics and culture fit. I guess we'll find out the admins appetite pretty quick here.

  31. Unusually, I disagree. ND owes him (8-2 as a fill in) but doesn't need him. Next year ND will have 3 better* (including the freshman) options, plus a ready to play transfer. *in some or all parts more athletic, better passers, better runners. I'm sure he asked, and pretty sure that this was what he was told. That said, probably not NFL material, yet wanting to play, the decision is understandable. It has been indicated elsewhere that he can finish his ND degree on line / with credits earned at another school. The schools with openings, or opportunities probably will want to fill as quickly as possible, and not all will be focused on bowl prep- witness Iowa taking McNamara. In 3 weeks more doors will close. A thought. Connecticut, his home state, has turned around under Mora to 6 & 6 versus4 & 28 the prior 3 years. Summary: I'm pretty sure that this has the coaches blessing and thanks, and should have ours.

  34. It sounds like Card would be the ideal pickup. Everything I am reading is that his tools would be a perfect fit for our offense. He has a big arm with touch as well as some mobility. He’s not as mobile as Buchner, but he was the #2 dual threat QB in his recruiting class. I think his arm paired with our rapidly improving WR room would put the offense into hyperdrive.

  36. History says that a kid that flips this much is gonna flounder…. I mean good luck to him, but the grass is always greener, he won’t stick somewhere and commit, so then he’ll never work his way up the food chain…if ya don’t do that, it’s pretty much over for you… Maybe he’ll prove me wrong.

  37. Hold that thought until things actually happen. ND can't sit still. Offers are being made and I think this will be a net positive. Guys leaving voluntarily that never play and having some experienced starts come and compete for playing time. USC got a major jump on this but if ND can get their hands around this it will be an equaliser.

  38. JeffV is right. Right now ND is going hard after McCullough (a sophomore), but I believe the philosophy is that ND would rather get a HS player to replace a 2nd stringer who left for playing time. Perfect example is CB. ND is expected to lose a few CBs to the portal and ND is choosing to recruit another CB in the 2023 class, Soloman Davis who is currently committed to Arizona. Some may not like that, but I think I prefer that method for majority of the replacements. Freeman wants to build majority of the team from the ground up. This may actually mean that recruiting classes will be pretty big each and every year.

  39. I'll be civil here. I agree, expected a blowout. Not because of the roster, but that's what BK does in bowl games. I must admit, I didn't watch the game but listened to some of it on the radio(Didn't care, honestly). They said Daniels had around 200 yards in the first half. I thought he played? Which leads me to my point forever. How can you say "with a backup QB" when all along you've been calling Daniels trash. That Kelly didn't have a roster and had to work wonders with a "benched ASU QB." Now, it's when Daniels isn't in it's part of the reason why LSU lost? Can't have it both ways. Also, when it comes to Kelly, why is it always a moral victory to hang your hat on. I remember that at ND for so many years. We lost by 27 points but nobody else gave up less points than ND that year. Nobody else played them that tough. If only ND had that QB or defense or was able to recruit higher etc. Moral victories are great the first 7 years. Then you get tired of them being brought up. Kelly is 6-5 in bowl games. But i'm only going to count the one's that matter. Not Grand Valley State. 2012-lost 42-14 to Alabama 2013-won 29-16 to Rutgers(really) in the Pinstripe bowl. -Vacated so lost... 2014-won 31-28 to LSU(commendable) Music City bowl 2015- Lost 44-28 to Ohio State(I was there for that ass kicking, it sucked)ND had zero chance of winning with that game plan. Our corners were 15 yards off the whole game 2016-NO BOWL ND SUCKED 2017-won 21-17 Citrus Bowl. Believe this was the last second bomb by Book to win it. 2018- Lost 3-30 to Clemson - Great season but gut punch of a loss 2019- Won 33-9 to Iowa State(really) Camping Bowl 2020- Lost 10-34 to Clemson(ACC Championship but won't count it, but see the pattern?) Lost to Bama 14-31 Rose Bowl. So, with ND 4 wins(two vs LSU; two vs. nobody's) 4 Losses monster blowouts in big bowl games that mattered. Mattered, because they had a chance to win a championship or advanced to play for the championship. Moral victories is all we ever saw with him here. And now you are doing it for LSU today. It was a butt kicking. The same way it was with ND. Kelly needs miracles to win. Like, home field against Bama when they aren't as good this year. They aren't...what is their best win this year? Go?....But if he doesn't have that miracle(Lawrence being out) he absolutely gets trashed. I won't respond. Go with your rebuttal. I don't care. Excuses and moral victories don't do it for me anymore. Good luck Kelly and LSU. I'm sure they will need it.....

  40. I don’t want to see Bama again let them sit in the corner. ND got trucked by Clemson in 2020 and still made playoffs, teams aren’t supposed to be penalized for championship games. I would honestly prefer USC. That hurts to say.
