Suppose you are about to graduate as valedictorian from ND.

Lots of firms are interviewing you and offering you great jobs.

You make a special connection with one person at one firm and ultimately choose that firm all the way across the country where you have no family and know no one other than that one person.

You arrive at your new job.

A day later that person takes another job somewhere else.

You might be a little irked. Your family might be likewise irked.

If you read his subsequent tweets, he's still all in and loving the Irish.

 

Correct. What I feared was the case does seem to be, in that Alford's decision has left at least one recruit feelings misled. However, he seems to have committed for the correct reasons and though feeling betrayed by Alford, still seems solid. Look, Alford is a loss and his recruiting was very solid, but the sky is falling bs is incredibly over the top. It would be wise to reserve judgement until a replacement is found. You certainly feel that way and so do I.

Obviously this is not an issue exclusive to ND, but it is kind of weak how this gets handled and how immediately the coaches officially leave as soon as the names are signed on the line that is dotted.

 

Not really sure how to better deal with coaches moving on, but it does rub me the wrong way how programs will sit on moves they absolutely know are coming simply to keep their recruiting classes intact.

You can tell he's not enrolled yet. A non cryptic tweet.

Considering the OSU RB coach just took the Bears job as the RB coach, I don't think Alford was thinking OSU until very recently. I don't think ND was sitting on anything.

Hard for me to believe the Ohio State coach just all of a sudden agreed to move to the Bears, or that Urban didn't know and already was in contact with Tony and that ND didn't already know and was already in touch with possible replacements.

 

And that all of it was on the down low and delayed so as not to disrupt recruiting classes.
