Houston is a decent to good school. The question is whether Houston has a good academic support network for athletes... if he cares about that at all.

 

As far as getting drafted or to the NFL... it will be definitely harder - weaker coaching, poorer connections. But, if he can get a tryout, and is a superior athlete... he'll get a chance.

 

One calculation he makes is that at Houston... he will get to play. And practice makes perfect. Whether he has the discipline to firm fundamentals and continuously improve.. time will tell.

Obviously we can laugh at the kid and I find his choice of school to be hilarious. On the other hand, however, I think he's probably really happy at Houston. He had six catches for 94 yards last night as a freshman. And he's targeted like that every week. I think ND hasn't even thrown the ball to freshman receivers six times all season (a few to Brown, maybe one or two to Neal on a sweep?). My point is that Greenberry is probably feeling vindicated in having chosen Houston because he's getting a lot of attention, immediately as a freshman.

If he feels vindicated after losing by 30 because he got his balls, then he is not what ND football needs. I'm over this kid and I respect his decision, but we shouldn't waste anymore thought on him.

He has received no attention. He plays on a 3-4 Houston team. Name me a Houston receiver in the last 10 years. I just looked up Houston stats...Did you know Patrick Edwards caught 89balls for 1700yds+ and 20TD last year? 1100yds and 13TDs the year before? He went undrafted and is prolly working at a gas station right now.

He plays for the Lions, so it's like pumping gas.

Listen, I'm not saying Greenberry made a wise decision. In my opinion, it was mind-bogglingly stupid on nearly all counts. But you could tell from his formation w/Tee of the Bang Bang group on FB, his Twitter activity, and his trolling of ND's fans that he was rather self-centered. I think he saw himself as having an opportunity to go be a big fish in a small pond, and right now, that's exactly what he's got. So while I find his decision to be utterly asinine, I bet it doesn't even faze him that he's losing. Like Dieter, the kid is a self-marketer who seems more interested in personal stats than winning.

Guys like Greenberry are in the same bucket as Lynch and Prestwood. I think they truly are good players but you are better off with the guy who wants to be here or else they will leave at the slightest adversity.

 

Fully agree with this. More than anything, this year's defense has taught me that in addition to sheer talent, chemistry is crucial. I have no doubt part of the reason why our defense is so good is because of the way they trust each other and play for each other every week. You hear that kind of rhetoric from a lot of teams, but it's never been more evident than it is in the relationships between this year's defensive players. I wish it were infectious -- the O-line could sure use an injection of it.

Huston got beat 72-42 by SMU. How do you think Greenberry feels about his choice of college?

 

I go to SMU, so I was at the game.

 

1. he looked great, would've made an impact this year for ND.

2. couldn't believe he was playing for a Houston team that was getting smoked by one of the worst teams in college football when he could be playing for a #5 Notre Dame team.

 

blows my mind
