  1. Fuller from Kizer against Virginia. One of my all time favorite clutch plays.
  2. That’s a great video. Forgot how good Golson could be.
  3. Jackie Young, who won a championship with the 2018 team, just won the first-ever Olympics 3x3 women’s basketball gold medal.
  4. Lee Kiefer, a woman who did fencing at ND and is now a medical student at the University of Kentucky, just won the first gold medal ever for the US in foil at the Olympics.
  5. I’ve said it before. In my opinion the entire season rests on Rees. His ability, or lack thereof, to be innovative and optimize production from the players he has will make or beak the season. ND has talent all over the offense, with meaningful depth. While maybe lacking college game time experience in some areas, the talent is there. Tommy boy, it’s up to you.
  6. Honestly I’m terribly embarrassed. I had no idea that Williams was the coach of the Suns until today. I don’t follow the NBA closely. All I had seen was Connaughton’s name in box scores as a player coming off the bench for the Bucks and thought that’s pretty cool. Just today I found out that Monty Williams is the Suns’ head coach. Would absolutely be amazing for him to win too.
  7. One more win for the Bucks and Pat Connaughton will be an NBA champion. Cool for him.
  8. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/former-buc-shot-dead-by-police/ Maybe a topic to move elsewhere. A conflict, police called, he ran, battled with police, grabbed one of their weapons... Who truly knows what happened? Demetrius knew, and the officers involved knew.
  9. Seems like this topic might be meant for the General Forums Lounge and Chit Chat area rather than here. Some people have big hearts and do what they can to help those in need. The people in this case happen to be Catholic. Many will disagree with them and what they’re doing. I don’t think this reflects ND at all really. I too attended ND. I’m ambivalent about this topic. Living in Texas and seeing multiple sides of the immigration issue paints a very gray picture for me, not so black-and-white.
  10. I don't know almost anything about Devin. Just looking at his .8714 composite on 24/7, and looking at the players in front of him and coming in behind him, it seems that playing time at ND would likely be very limited. I'm guessing he ends up someplace like San Diego State or San Jose State, maybe UCLA or Cal. This indicates to me that he really wants to play football, and that the cultural fit isn't/wasn't all that important. Pure speculation, of course. I actually feel sad about this. Not for ND. I feel sad for Devin. He had high hopes when he signed at ND. Excitement. Then reality set in as he watched recruiting continue, and understood that there are a ton of really good players out there. His excitement and hopes faded, and he decided he had to go somewhere else. I hope he finds what he needs, has a great time, and has great success.
  11. Mississippi State wins the championship. If ND had to lose in a super regional, maybe there’s some solace that the team they lost to won the whole thing(?).
  12. Love to see that kind of offer list.
  13. I think the ND staff has access information that we, the fans, don’t have. We, as fans, of course have hot sports opinions about just about everything. The coaches certainly have information about how players they want are leaning. I’m sure the coaches apply pressure to highly ranked recruits to commit. When there are two recruits they like for a position, but might only have room for one, I suspect they let both know and then take the first to commit. I highly suspect that happened here. You have great thoughts and present them well. As a parent of young men who strive to achieve great things in life, I’m just going to be happy for this soon-to-be senior in high school and his family. I’m going to trust the ND coaching staff. We are all free to choose to believe in the staff or not. Based on the last three years of results, I choose to believe. And, separately, I have been President of multiple organizations. Not the country, but other enterprises.
  14. As a parent of college-age boys, it’s exciting to see young men have the opportunity to play football on scholarship anywhere, even more so at a place like ND. The effort of the kid and his family to get to this point has been enormous. I can’t evaluate talent, heart, and mind. I think ND has people who do that much better than me. Congratulations and good luck to Ashton and his family.
  15. Alabama already has two stud running backs committed, so they're probably out. Penn State hasn't had a stud running back in a few cycles, including this one. Texas A&M similarly isn't overly stocked at RB. I wonder how much Singleton is considering those two. Would absolutely love to see Price and Singleton in this class. ND would be stacked at RB.
