  1. If ND can ever figure out how to beat top ranked teams......Now it's Freeman's turn, hopefully he can figure it out.
  2. I would take Saban over Harbaugh is a second.
  3. The good news just keeps on coming. Freeman is trying to assemble an outstanding coaching staff. The more experience he can get around him, the more he will learn and it should pay huge dividends in the future.
  4. Looking at the 2022 schedule today, 9-10 wins for a 1st year HC might be a stretch. I'd be happy with a competitive team against the big boys with 8-9 wins.
  5. While I agree completely that Freeman should be given 2-3 years before passing judgment didn't the coaches you mentioned have previous head coaching experience?
  6. I have made a New Year's resolution to not respond to anything Elder posts when he is reinstated.
  7. Thank you Mike and if Elder returns please put him on a very short leash with permanent banishment the next step.
  8. 9 months in the future?..lol
  9. Exactly. Schedules are set 3-4 years in advance.
  10. Agree with everything stated. Freeman will be fine as he gains experience.
  11. LOL....I owe Kelly an apology? You must have lost your mind.
  12. You knew the Irish would come out of the gate on fire and for the 1st 29:30 they played that way. No excuse for losing after being up 28-7. Hopefully MF learned a lot today.
  13. I got sick of the announcers telling everyone how Cincinnati belonged in the playoffs. It was almost like they were trying to convince themselves.
  14. Ordered from them twice and both times I sent the merchandise back....very cheap quality.
  15. I'm all in with MF but yes I feel ND's hand was forced. In order to save the 2022 recruiting class Jack had to act quickly. MF might be a homerun hire...only time will tell.
  16. Freeman will have the team fired up and ready to play. Take it to the bank.
  17. I don't think Freeman is going to become predictable and stagnant or develop an ego the size of Mt. Everest.
  18. I hope and pray Kelly sinks lower than whale shit. What a phony.
  19. I'm pretty sure that very few expect ND to open next season with a win against OSU. With Kelly a defeat would be almost a given. With Freeman who knows? I would rather take a chance with the new guy than get the almost guaranteed outcome from Kelly.
  20. Lou Holtz could burn down an orphanage on Christmas Eve and I would still love the guy. Lou was the coach ND needed at the time and was and still is a fan favorite. I have had personal dealings with Coach Holtz in the past (most recently in the past month) and he has always been courteous and sincere.
  21. Kelly has a proven record of falling on his face and failing to deliver when he was in the spot light....he became old, predictable and stagnant. You love the guy and you are entitled to your opinion. What you fail to admit is that you aren't giving Freeman a chance.
  22. Saw this and it made me laugh...."Here at LSU we fire coaches that have won National Championships so we can hire one that hasn't".
  23. Ok we get it. You wanted to wait on Fickell and risk losing this recruiting class. Freeman was the best choice to be made at this time. Because of Kelly's surprise announcement everyone was caught off guard. Jack had to move fast. I think Freeman will be fine and yes he will make some "rookie" mistakes but the way he recruits and his energy will spell success for the Irish in the long run. Give the guy a chance and stop being so negative. Others having a difference of option from yours doesn't make them wrong.
