  1. I realize we're only seeing pretty short clips from the practices, but Drew Pyne throws a really nice ball.
  2. Hi Mike, A little bit of an adjustment catching up on this upgrade, but yes, I enjoy the new format more than the old one. It's a much cleaner look for starters.
  3. I would be quite surprised if Jack Coan isn't the starter to open the season. Agree with tneun about Buchner's lack of a senior season hurting his chances.
  4. Wiltfong thinks pretty highly Mr Angeli. This, along with BigHead's comments, give me a certain level of confidence with this commitment. 247’s Steve Wiltfong had this to say about Angeli: “I think that Steve Angeli becomes one of the best throwers of the football on Notre Dame’s team right away. Maybe he’s not as mobile as some of the guys in the room like Tyler Buchner, but I think that his arm talent and ability to throw the football will be at a different level than what we’ve seen at Notre Dame under center lately, “said Wiltfong. “I think he’s an upgrade for Notre Dame from a pure throwing standpoint. With that, he’s a guy that has a ton of potential.” “I think that he’s shown on film that he can throw the football and he can make accurate, strong throws out on the move. I think he’ll stand in the pocket when pressure is coming and he can stand in there and make a good throw. I think that the ball comes out smooth and quick. This is a guy that Notre Dame can win games with.”
  5. I tend to believe you invest for the long term to help build up a nest egg for the future. Take advantage of compounding and let those reinvested dividends ride. Question for Elder, what do you consider 'a lot of dollars to throw around"?
  6. At first glance, I read this as ".....about liberal cannibis" which goes really well with "Where's the bean dip?"
  7. Meyer Gives us a look at Coan in a breif film study Thanks Faith, that was quite interesting and informative. Makes me feel more optimistic about Coan.
  8. You're absolutely correct...wow. Though it does point to what a good job Elston has done developing the talent available to him. Wait, if I remember correctly, wasn't Daelin Hayes a 5*? Now if only we could see this same type of development at the QB position!
  9. Matt Campbell would definitely be choice no. 1 for me. He's done a fantastic job at Iowa St and isn't ND one of his preferred destinations? Pat Fitzgerald from Northwestern would run a close 2nd. Don't know if he would have any interest though. 3rd choice is a tie between Lea, Satterfield from Louisville, PJ Fleck and Scott Frost.
  10. You and me both, Jim2Dokes, you and me both.
  11. Wow, that is quite a discrepancy. On the other hand, ND has done a pretty decent job identifying recruits that are flying under the radar, especially given these analyst numbers. Getting a fully staffed recruiting dept on board would be a good first step in closing the recruiting gap some.
  12. JTennant, I'd say this is a pretty accurate assessment, particularly the last few paragraphs. Additionally, as Soko put it: How can a very highly rated receiver like Jordan Johnson not even see the field with the average play ahead of him? It seems like we bring in some highly rated recruits now and then, but then they don't see the field as freshmen. Off the top of my head, Hamilton is the exception to this, though there probably are a few others. Perhaps that might be one of the reasons ND has a hard time getting those 5* recruits?
  13. Don Brown was shown the door at the big house. Will ND be kicking the tires on this one? What do you think, should he be at the top of the list for the DC position? I say ND should be on the phone to his agent today.
  14. Yeah, I agree with you here, Mike Elston is at or near the top of the list. He knows the defense and he has done a great job as DL coach. Promoting Lea from LB coach to DC worked out pretty well. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if BK goes with Elston. And I would be fine with that.
