  1. Maybe Freeman can spend some time recruiting offense as well...
  2. If Agu ends up Irish, it is good sign that Freeman seems to be able to go against Alabama and win as a recruiter.
  3. Heard that Joey Tanona ran a 4.8 40 during his high school testing. They used some type of laser timing system so might not be exaggerated as much as usual for high school. Also supposed to be throwing shot put around 60' in practice but has been in the 53-54' range in meets.
  4. Unfortunately, Kelly does not seem to like giving backup QBs any significant snaps. Clemson had 4 players attempt double digit passes last year. Their punter had the same or more completions (two) and attempts (three) as either one of ND's back-up QBs. There is a reason that Jurkovec transferred. Given that ND's back-up QBs collectively attempted a total of six passes last year, I do not blame him. If Coan starts, it appears unlikely that any other QB will get to throw many passes in game situations. Hopefully, that is not an issue in 2022. I guess that Kelly can always find another
  5. I saw some mention that Tyree's weight may have been underreported last year so take his gain this year with a grain of salt.
  6. Looking at the latest roster and comparing it to last season's, most numbers are the same but there are some differences: Players who got "shorter": Jordan Johnson WR - from 6-2 to 6-1 5/8 Clarence Lewis CB - from 6-1 to 5-11 1/2 Michael Mayer TE - from 6'5 to 6-4 1/2 Tosh Baker OL - from 6-10 to 6-8 Significant weights gains (not a single player lost weight) Isaiah Pryor S - 5 pounds from 199 to 204 Alexander Ehrensberger DL - 5 pounds from 247 to 252 (I would have thought he would have gained more) Chris Tyree RB - 9 pounds from 179 to 188 Ai
  7. Given the lack of an dynamic offense, I thought maybe this person might be someone who Brian Kelly could take some advice from. I think that Kelly doesn't play young, fast WRs because they do not run block. This coach doesn't seem to be bothered by that and just wants to score some points. https://twitter.com/i/status/1375253680702783488
  8. Brian Kelly might be better appreciated by some ND fans (myself included) if he did not have to "reinvent" himself after a 31-20 stretch from 2013 to 2016 during which he seemed to have put things on cruise control. Does a top 3 coach really average 7.75 wins and 5 losses for a four year period at a Tier 1 program? After 25 years as a head coach, he should not have needed on-the-job training. Even now, it seems mind-blowing that it took him 10 years as ND's coach to acknowledge that he should actually try to get Top 5 classes if he wants to actually win a major bowl game or a play-off game
  9. With some new offers being extended to him, just wondering if DJ Wesolak still looks good for ND?
  10. For what it worth, I believe that this ranking is mainly based on the last three years.
  11. Chris Tyree is also #25 and I believe that he is the fastest player on offense.
  12. No, Chad Bowden, Notre Dame's New Defensive Director of Recruiting, came with Freeman from Cincinnati https://fightingirishwire.usatoday.com/2021/01/19/chad-bowden-is-notre-dames-new-defensive-director-of-recruiting/
  13. Seems as if Freeman was not satisfied with the ND status quo for recruiting and even brought in his own recruiting assistant. Too bad that it seems that Rees and Taylor have merely followed the recruiting approach which already existed.
  14. For most people who source their health insurance through their employer, there are only a few factors which can impact rates. Not counting coverage levels and deductibles, age and state are basically it. Even in a fair number of situations, age and even state are not used to create different rates for different employees. As a result, for most employee plans, there is no difference in rates for a 35 year old, 350 pound person who smokes, is diabetic, and rides a motorcycle without a helmet and a 35 year old who does not smoke, is in excellent health, and does not have any dangerous behavi
  15. Why do you bother to wear a seat belt if you do not wear a helmet? If it were not against the law, would you skip wearing a seat belt? Helmets saved an estimated 1,859 lives in 2016. If all motorcyclists would have worn helmets in 2016, 802 more could have been saved. [*]Each year, the United States could save more than $1billion in economic costs if all motorcyclists wore helmets. Helmets reduce the risk of death by 37%. Helmets reduce the risk of head injury by 69%. https://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafety/mc/index.html
