  1. I thought he would go in the 6th or 7th if at all. I thought the most likely outcome would be Book getting invited as an undrafted free agent. ND is putting OL and TEs in the NFL in droves, good ones at that.
  2. I like the look. It's definitely cleaner. The prior iteration looked like something from the days of GeoCities or AOL. This is easier on the eyes aesthetically.
  3. Will you please amplify what "rowdy" means in this context? That term is relative in two contexts: 1) relative to other dorms on campus; and, 2) relative to what "rowdy" means elsewhere. I'm sure rowdy at Zahm is not the same as Rowdy a Florida under Meyer or Oklahoma in the 80s.
  4. I haven't turned my Xbox on since my daughter was born 5 years ago. This may at least make me think about upgrading to the new unit.
  5. Is that real? If true, that is horrifying. HS measurables are inflated if anything. So if it says 5.0, it's probably worse. I have a hard time believing a 4*, No. 1 ILB runs a fiver.
  6. I think you're a lawyer - may have you confused with another poster, but I think we speak the same language. Dunbar was also fellating and being seeded by players for grades and embezzling money. Prince Shembo happened. He probably sexually assaulted a girl and she definitely killed herself. I would view him more favorably had he not Justin Turnered his girlfriend's dog 50 yards and killed it. Sullivan was negligence at best. No, it's not "that" bad at ND. You're right. I believe I yielded as much above.
  7. I may have the timeline wrong, but I thought he "only" shot somebody through the face at Florida. He got a Master's in Murder after that. Your points are fair. My larger point was implied so I'll say it explicitly: I do not like the sanctimonious, holier-than-though tone a large portion of our fanbase uses as its starting point. That current position is belied by the fact that fans who are old enough to remember were crestfallen when Meyer gave ND the one finger salute.
  8. I'm puzzled as to why this is news. It's not. He was also an assistant at ND for a handful of years. I'm sure he got some on-the-job-training. Let's not pretend Kim Dunbar, Tarnished Dome, Declan Sullivan didn't happen, or Cierre Wood didn't murder a kid. Glass houses, throwing stones and whatnot. Florida and Ohio State don't care, ND at least tries to. That's a difference. I will concede that. P.S. I would have given a Ronnie Lott tip of the finger to hire him in 2005 or 2009 - or now.
  9. We need a thread for discussing market news, what we're doing with our cash. Just out of curiosity, who here is following the very public kerfuffle between the institutional/professional Wall Street folks and the WSB folks at Redit (https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/)?
  10. I understand where you are coming from and where you are going. Ultimately, I just don't understand how ND hasn't been able to land one, not one, of these elite, program-altering kind of QBs. Who was the last 5*, Crist?Kiel (I think he was a 5*). If Powlus plays, ND has problems. He had to be a favor owed. Pyne has more talent than Book by a considerable chunk. We'll see, fingers crossed.
  11. I have no idea what the average height is for an NFL starter but I will take your word for it. My reply was to your general premise that a taller QB would do better, seemingly by the mere fact of being taller. My riposte was to highlight that we need better QBs, whether they are 5'10" like Murray, 6'6" like Lawrence or 6'0" like Book. Book did get the most out of his talent. But he never sees the field at Alabama or Ohio State. That is a fact. Look at his offer list.
  12. Height was rarely an issue for Mayfield, Hurts, Tua (same height); Murray is a good 3 inches shorter. Those folks are/were just better. Book was more circumscribed more by physical deficiencies other than stature. The offensive surrounding cast for the above-referenced were also better.
  13. https://www.insider.com/qanon-conspiracy-theory-biden-inauguration-codemonkeyz-ron-watkins-2021-1 This is almost Heavens Gate or Branch Dividian-like. "The Q" didn't do what he/it was supposed to do. The UFO didn't follow Hale-Bop, Trump left; Biden was sworn in. I'm sure it all part of the pedo, cannibalistic plan, a short-term setback. I guess it's time for a double Frazzledrip on the rocks at Comet Ping Pong.
  14. He hates, loathes, despises, detests, execrates, abhors ND. He would never come here.
