If his name was not Montana would we really care? No one enjoyed watching Joe Montana more then me . Whether it was ND or the 49 'ers ,but sometimes we have to accept the fact that offsprings are not going to produce the same results as the father. There was only one number "3 "at ND to this point, with all do respect to others who wore that number. Nate and Nick are not going to repeat their papa's glory.

Tom Lemming said Oaks Christian is getting much more than just a famous name in Montana.

 

"By this time next year, he is going to be one of the more recruited quarterbacks in the state of California," said Lemming, a recruiting analyst for CBSSports. "He does everything well. His delivery is good, he has a quick release and he has good skills."

 

 

It doesn't sound like little Montana is a hack.

ND will surely be looking for a QB next year.

 

Now, Tom may get it wrong, but his analysis is no more out there than yours, just in opposite directions.

You mean Michael Jordan's son who got significant playing time as a true freshman for a big ten basketball program??? Oh...yeah, he is really a disappointment...

 

Sometimes we need to remember that these kids take walk-on positions with the schools because their families financial situation allows it and benefits the program by being able to add another scholarship player...Especially in basketball where you have limited number of players...

 

Think of it this way...When Michael Jordan won a hand of blackjack this weekend in Tahoe, he paid for his son's tuition, books and housing this year at Illinois. If his son is able to add a power forward in the recruiting game as a result of an available scholarship and it helps him win a few more games and possibly garnish some NBA attention...it pays for itself.

 

As for Montana's kids...let's be fair. Neither of them are likely to turn inot Joe Cool II...But if they choose to walk-on at ND, let's not describe them as reaches or slouches either...They may very well have been good enough to play at a smaller program (Cal Poly, SDSU, etc..) in which case, they are better backups at the position than we have had in the past (Pat Dillingham ring a bell?)...

One, the kid hasn't even played a down as a junior, yet; so how can anyone make an assumption about a kid who is probably still growing. Two, Michael Jordan's kid isn't playing in the ACC is he? He is playing in the Big Ten... Was Ohio State the only to make the tournament from that conference? I exaggerate, but lets be honest; CUSA basketball might be better than the Big Integer, at the moment.

Not once was it implied that Montana's sons were going to be like their father. I just thought it was interesting that one of his boys has the same QB coach and will be attending the same HS that Jimmy did. That was all.

 

Another good part of the story mentions the fact that he will be competing with Wayne Gretzky's son for playing time.

so ur saying that gettting 5.3 minutes per game on a team that is 16-19 is significant playing time? not to mention he didnt play in 9 games

I may be drinking the kool-aid but I think Nate is going to turn out to be a surprise. I have seen some tape, think hes a least 6'2" and he really does throw the ball very well. He has a strong arm and appears to have good touch, if he has any of his fathers game aptitude, which to me is the most important charactertistic and one no one can really speak to yet, then I think we should all just be very very open about the possibility that Nate turns out to be a fine QB. His father was neither big, nor fast, nor strong armed.....how is Ryan Mallett or Ryan Leaf doing these days...ever see anyone with bigger arms then those guys? So lets have a wait and see on Nate, like JC, if things "click" and the light goes on, we may end up with something special. Some people have said, "would we be talking about this if it wasnt Joe's kid?" no probably not but if those same people want to tell me that there is nothing to genetics and bloodlines, well then, really nothing to say to that but its pretty clear good traits pass down far more often then they just appear in general populace

I don't know if the article mentions it or not, but Montana and Gretzky will be throwing passes to Will Smith's son.

 

Think the program will get any press?

Wonder if Snoop Dog will have time to go to U$C games and OC games?

hey irishcrazy, No your not drinking Kool aid , i agree totally , All this press about so ans so and so forth is just crap most of the time , Nate will be himself and if he is good enough then so be i9t , Clausen in my mind still has to click more better before i can hail him as the savior same with the new QB coming this year crist, he has to click and that takes time , no matter what the press says . i hope he does well and sets a standard for himself. go Irish

Didn't Gretzky speak at ND a few years ago? Could be wrong.

Either way Oaks should be a good fit for young Montana.

That's pretty funny.

It's a very wealthy school stuck up towards the end of the San Fernando valley.

I don't know if anybody here has seen the school, but it looks like a small university or a really nice, modern JC.

Take a look at their facilities.

They could host the Olympics in their swim stadium.

The website also probably cost a fortune, but damn it's nice.

Joe Cool didn't exactly tear it up his 1st few years at ND. He was just an afterthought. I think folks look back on him like he was a four year superstar, or while wearing their SF 49'er's glasses. I would welcome Nick, and hope he matures like his daddy did. He's already bigger than Joe was.

As a true freshman...yep...that is significant playing time...Illinois was terrible and Bruce Weber is a squeaky voiced cry baby, but Jordan was counted on for time and played well while he was in...

 

Nobody ever said he was Eric Gordon or OJ Mayo good, but the kid did contribute as a TF walkon...
