  1. Based on one online article, seems that Michigan might be recruiting Walker as a safety. Has ND only looked at him as a WR?
  2. A guess or is that per the "grapevine"?
  3. No knowledge of anything but it did appear that most of the important recruits were in the 2023 class. As a result, probably no short-term news but it was good to get a cluster of Top 100-type of prospects together on campus. Hoping that ND becomes a "cool" choice for top recruits who want to play with other elite players.
  4. Tom Loy put in a crystal ball for ND today
  5. Dodd mentioned that Big 12 might consider offering 1.5 revenue share to Texas and Oklahoma to entice them to stay. That might make more sense than joining SEC. (Not sure what the dollars look like over next ten years) If something like that happens, it might cause other schools to push for unequal revenue distribution. Not sure that anyone else really has the same leverage as Texas and Oklahoma at the moment.
  6. Great to see the number of high 2023 recruits on campus. Glad to see that the staff has raised their sights...
  7. I believe that there are 51 names on the high school nomination list so ND has 4 / 51 committed
  8. Echo, as an IT type who had somewhat seriously considered buying the domain but who did not want the responsibility/time commitment, I do not have a problem with the work Mike has done. The prior site was on an old, unsupported version of software and upgrading or migrating it was something which probably should have been done sooner even if only for security purposes. IMO, Mike has been fairly responsive from a support/issue perspective (especially considering that this is probably more of a hobby given the financials). Is it perfect, no. But I do not have any major complaints. Also, the old site is most likely backed up so those past messages might be available if Mike wanted to spend the time to do that. (good spot for the old catching flies with honey / vinegar adage )
  9. If one is looking to recruit 5* prospects, then draft results matter since elite recruits want to go to a school which will help them get drafted in early rounds. NIL opportunities may start to come into play as well. From that perspective, then Baker Mayfield looks good. In addition, if you are discounting draft results as a measure of a program's QB development, then what else does Kelly have to offer as an inducement for QB recruits after 11 years at ND? Kizer's 18 games in the NFL?
  10. It was not just against Alabama. In both the ACC Championship Game and the CFP, the offense did not score more than 14 points. Kelly may not have the play sheet in front of him but his fingerprints are all over the offensive scheme and he is the one constant for an offense which has scored 14 or less points in four play-off games. Over the past several years, other CFP schools have made a conscience decision to field more explosive offenses and Kelly seems to playing catch-up. IMO, Kelly needs to step away from the offense and let his OC (be it Rees or whoever) have a free rein with personnel and scheme like he has with the defense.
  11. seljri, as long as you are making broad generalizations, shouldn't you also say that it reflects "badly" on all Texans as well?
  12. Hopefully Rees will be the exception to the less then stellar set of OC's which Kelly has hired. Charley Molnar (Current QB coach at Idaho) Chuck Martin (Current HC at Miami OH but had never coached offense before) Mike Denbrock (Current OC at Cincinnati) Mike Sanford, Jr. (Current OC at Minnesota) Chip Long (Current OC at Tulane) Tommy Rees (First time OC at ND)
  13. In 11 years, Kelly has only had two QBs get drafted. I guess there is progress in that they have been two out of his last three.
  14. BTW, Oklahoma just received commitment from Malachi Nelson, #2 QB and #5 overall rated player for 2023. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/31840371/oklahoma-football-strengthens-impressive-2023-recruiting-class-junior-300-qb-malachi-nelson
  15. Notice the use of players' twitter names? Helping with NIL...
