More Stoops Rumors...

Again, everything below is rumors, but one can dream, can't he?

 

 

"I don't know if Bobby will jump, but I have a source that said his name is at the top of the Irish wish list. We should know something in the next 48 hours. Brian Kelley was high on that list too but apparently they've found some dirt on the guy and don't want to risk another O'Leary.

 

**Irish fans are beginning to lose faith (regarding Stoops to ND). Eddie DeBartolo (49ers, big ND donor, Youngstown native) was supposedly leading the charge from ND's perspective. Agreed to terms on an 8 year/$34 M deal. Stoops asked for 5 academic exemptions and permission to get around ND's Reslife (disciplinary board) and instill his own disciplinary methods within the team. DeBartolo couldn't get the admin to bite on those demands. This seems to be the breaking point in negotiations."

why is this such a big deal to ND? why would they not be willing to give in with these requests?

getting the ND football program back to the top should be a priority, and if you have to make some sacrifices, you do so.

It's being posted on the Irish Sports Daily boards today, but I'm not a paying member so I didn't have access to them. I googled it and didn't pay attention to the date. My bad! Their boards are blowing up about Stoops and a done deal today. (My friend, who is an ISD paying member, has been copying and pasting these messages to me this morning.)

You probably know this already, but for the rest the reason why the reslife issue is a no go - is that ND has always prided itself on not having a separation between athletes and students...no athlete dorms, cafeterias, etc...no special treatment at all. You are an ND student first and athlete second. If you make an exception for football, then every other sport will want it and then half the campus will be "special" athletes and the other half students.
