national champs baby
In his radio show yesterday RR addressed recruiting with that comment. Given our severe shortage on defense I was hoping there was a way to add one or two more somehow, but it seems not. I'm at the point of hoping for an offensive de-commitment from someone just so we can bring another defender in.
If Cornelius can do it so can the Maize and Blue! Beat OSU!
"Thirteenth-seeded Spartanburg, just 3-8 during the regular season, dealt fourth-seeded Rock Hill its first loss in 12 games this season in the biggest shocker of the 4A playoffs, officially announcing Cinderella’s arrival at the ball."
This was quite a surprise, folks. Glad to see the team of one of our recruits get a big win. The Rock Hill Bearcats entered ranked No. 21 nationally by USA Today. Jones had a TD run in the first half and a TD run in the second half, finishing with 19 rushes for 116 yards.
I was wondering, if Weiss does get the boot, does that re-open Notre Dame's latest recruiting class, especially if, say, we pick up one of their position coaches or something?

I don't think we really went head-to-head on any of these guys except perhaps Lo Wood.
It drove me nuts when our 2008 class suddenly became a target for poachers (and it ended up giving us a terrible defensive class). I guess I feel differently, though, when the shoe is on the other foot.
I just got this press release in my inbox from the Detroit Lions. Looks like Dior Mathis to me...

I noticed this guy's picture on the front of GBW with the quote "I love this place." So I thought I'd do a little "googlestalking".
