  1. Good stuff thanks! Swarbrick is being honest and playing both sides at the same time. Which is what he’s getting paid. If you read it he’s not blowing smoke up the rear ends of people. If NBC gets the b10 then more exposure to broadcast ND games and put them in the playoff picture. ESPN was never going to do that. So he’s right in that regard that this only helps ND and the b10 for that matter. It also could benefit ND financially when the b10 does come aboard. More money for them and more exposure which means more money that could go to ND when they do a seperate deal later on. Very smart. Also, he’s saying nice things about both NBC and B10 in case that is their only option later on. Smart. He also says it’s all about money, getting to the playoffs still and location(which hasn’t been brought up before). Which has always been the case. If that’s taken away ND goes. If NBC pays them well and ND is still able to get to the playoffs with there schedule I don’t see them jumping to a conference. This also may be easier to schedule B10 games because they will be part of NBC now. They will want that exposure with their partner-ND. Lastly, until the media rights deals are done and everyone has a legit deal PAC, ACC, and b12, this will always be an issue. Even if ND goes to the b10.
  2. I would think so. Oddly, Although competition looked weak, Lyons seemed to have that extra gear and long stride. It also looked to me that he exploded fairly quickly. Might be a steal…
  3. Agree with everything you just said. The one silver lining I’ve read is that they have 6 scholarship db’s right now and two may be hurt. One of them is coming back from injury while two are true freshman. I like hearing that.
  4. Agree. I also think NBC has been shooting itself in the foot for years with all their off brand sports prior to ND games- water polo, fencing, rugby, English premiere(sorry not for me), gymnastics etc. Hard to get jacked when all these other networks have good shows and pump you up for their games only to wait for ND to play with NO lead up.
  5. I don’t know. Forever all people did was complain that ND couldn’t do any better than top 8-12 recruiting wise. I’d always argued differently. Freeman has absolutely changed that narrative. So I don’t think this is a new coach recruiting bump. All reports is that he is constantly on the phone and talking to guys. That kids absolutely love him and he seems genuine. Far cry from Kelly. NIL I’m sure has helped a little but lots of schools are able spend like crazy and ND is still at the top as we speak. Some kids have vocally said if Freeman wasn’t the coach they wouldn’t have listened. Also, Freeman was already showing a recruiting bump with the defense under Kelly’s staff last year. This isn’t a one off IMO. Agree with most. ND needs to show up and ball out Sept. 3rd.
  6. Eh. People always complain that ND is always in the playoff consideration every year too. The fact of the matter is ND is usually in the range of 4-7th best team every year. So 5 to me is right in their range.
  7. And this has always been what I thought ND could do. But the previous staff seemed to think top 12 classes were the premium. Glad this staff is showing that ND’s academics aren’t going to get in their way.
  8. Damn. I heard good things. I guess not.
  9. Exactly. That was the spot to win and always has been. If Correll can’t cut it then that puts Patterson back at center and opens the LG spot. But then Kristofic will just slide over there. Spindler needs to keep improving. Especially with Schrauth having Nelson’s attitude.
  10. Brown seems to always be at the right place at the right time. He’s your lunchbox guy without the hard hitting. He’s starting for sure.
  11. I don’t know. People really want Spindler to move up but he seems to still behind a little bit.
  12. I could be wrong. But I doubt that he would decommit only to recommit to KSU. Sorry KSU…
  13. Greg Little, Anzalone, and Darby for me.
  14. He did wear 30 his freshman year. Or at least a game. I watched some highlights of his not to long ago and he wore 30 for a play.
  15. Mine too. We used to get haircuts at the same barber. Vito’s! Vito would put his fat guy on you while cutting your hair. He also was the first person to show me a playboy ha. I maybe shared already shared this story at one point.
  16. Wait? I thought Edwards was 44. Along with all the other great 44’s?
  17. Davis will be back. I have no inside info. But he will be back.
  18. You know listening to Freeman speak. He doesn’t think NIL is the one deterring factor for kids. Almost like it’s the shiny new toy syndrome. I hope he’s right when it comes to some of our guys.
  19. If Foskey can go too 5 that would set a great example for Keeley and other guys that ND delivers in getting guys in the top 5-10 too.
  20. Sure! Why not? Not really sure how many people are here though.
  21. True. And this might be the one time to really load up on your classes and get some great quality depth. Maybe ND should do it for a year or two before they do crack down.
  22. If ATM is going to offer kids 5-10 million a year. That’s going to be hard to top. It doesn’t matter how late to the game you are. Kids will listen to that. Sucks that this is how the future may be.
  23. Why do you have to try and ruin my crazy theory. Give me time. I’ll spin in when comes to me…
