Ronald Johnson - never really in this one. Grades are definite issue 0%

Major Wright - he isn't as interested in ND as people think he is. If he heads Midwest it's to the Buckeyes. Some speculate OSU, others Florida and Miami. I dont see him at ND. 5-10 %

Malcom Smith- Has been hard to read. Right now USC is his leader with ND behind by a little margin. I can't see him at Cal. 40 %

Robert Hughes- Was an early lean to ND along with his buddies but his buddies shifted to ILL and so did he. ND is still in it though 45 %

Michael McNeil- no

Jason Peters not in his top 4 right now but the inhome is coming up. Who knows

Rickey Booker- we didnt offer!!

I'd be nervous about SC being on Malcolm's list in any fashion. It seemed the chance we had was his parents were not happy about the education his brother got. It sounds like Carroll and his staff spun had some time to do spin control to get back into the picture.

The idea of Smith's parents being unhappy w/ Steve Smith's education is pretty funny and wrong. The guy is going to play in the NFL next year, has never had any academic problems in his 4 years, and has been a starter at SC since the beginning of his sophomore year. SS is a leader on the team, and was actually voted as the team's MVP this season.

 

As far as Malcolm Smith, he wants to go to SC as he grew up rooting for them. The only reason he isn't a "done deal" is because of the depth at linebacker at SC. Howeverr, most people feel confident that he'll end up at SC. Everyone will have a better idea after this weekend.

Glad to be here - not a flamer, but since ND and SC usually have a lot of overlap when it comes to recruits, i'm lookin forward to some good and friendly discussions.

Just be careful at the Colesium... SC fans there could are worse than tOSU fans. Part of it is the dispossed Raider fans that latched onto SC and I'm sure the fact that the stadium sells beer does not help.

Welcome Fighton. I think you're partially correct here, the issue w/ steve's parents isn't grades, it's credits. Apparently he's a 4th year guy w/ some credits left before graduation. Pretty normal at most places but for whatever reason it doesn't sit well w/ them, they feel academics have been brushed aside. Another thing I've heard is that Pete upset some parents w/ not attending the wake for the passing of your kicker (my sincere respects to the family and SC). I know he attended the funeral but the fact he was having a sit down w/ Huezenga in the carribean while other staff members addressed the media and handled the team was a little surprising. Pete is a player's coach and father figure to these kids, he wasn't there when they needed him and I guess some parents didn't like that. It will be interesting to see where Malcolm ends up, we'd love him Irish! Isn't Galippo enough, especially w/ Tyler probably shifting to LB.

While I have a genuine distaste for the USC program...I have never had a more enjoyable time then attending the Irish games at the Colesium. This will of course change the day I finally make it to South Bend...a lifelong dream!!! The Trojan fans there for the most part are like us...except for the drunken masses that pelt our mascot as he runs the sidelines. But Raider fan does not live at the Colesium any more... They do lurk on the boards though...privately hoping the 'Poodle' does not make the same mistake Robinson did, $$$$$$$$$$$

Here's hoping my fellow Toreador (Malcom Smith) does not make the same choice other former Toreadors (Steve Smith and Jeff Fisher to name a couple) made...and comes to South Bend!

I have been at the colesium for most of the games since 1994 (except last year and 1996). I can say that the worst fans I have run into were SC fans... There are some good ones but they have some real nasty fans. They have no security which makes matters worse. During my last three trips, I have seen fights and arrests at each game. Drunks SC fans attacked another SC fan, Raider fan and ND fan (based on jerseys) and the brawl carried into the womens rest room before riot cops broke it up. Then a couple male SC fans (same guys as above after fight was broken up) were getting in my 7 month pregant wifes face because she had a ND jersey on after we beat them. Cops finally arrested them. These were both pre-PC incidents and things have gotten worse since they started winning.

Well 'NDLawJAG'...I have to admitt...I usually keep my focus straight ahead when leaving the games. And I always park on some gang members 'grandmothers' lawn. Its safer to park there than anywhere else really? But I should have also mentioned...I have never been to a Ohio State game...so I honestly do not know the difference between the two.

 

But all this said...I honestly do not know how the visiting recruits feel that SoCal is the place for them? The surrounding area is one of the most gang-infested locations in the country...honestly! A recruit must be kept on campus the entire visit?

 

Oh yeah...sorry about your experiences while visiting my home state...most of us are beter than that in hospitality.

Well, We still have a couple prospects left that are seriously considering ND. Major Wright and Malcom Smith. Has anyone heard anything about Major's visit to ND over the weekend? There is nothing on the pay sites. Usually there would be some kind of article about his visit by now. Any info is appreciated. Thanks! Go Irish!!!
