Oddly enough I was talking to my coworker (Purdue Alum/ND Fan), who is also into recruiting and from NW Indiana. He asked me if we were looking at Gelen Robinson... Which made me think he either meant,Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson or current Basketball Recruit Glenn Robinson III.
But, as it turns out, GR3 has a younger brother confusingly named Gelen, who is just a Sophmore... but appears to be pretty good at football. Looks like we could be hearing his name in a few years.
NW Indiana Times, Defensive Player of the Year...
Of course, Robinson is also a very talented wrestler. But his ultimate goal is to play football on Saturdays. And maybe even Sundays.
And this is where he might follow in his brother's shadow. He has gone on trips to Ann Arbor with "Tre." Wearing the classic blue and gold helmet is something that brings a smile to Robinson's face.
"I haven't talked to a lot of colleges yet," he said. "But I do like Michigan."
Some interesting quotes:
"The good news is? the new guy will have a loaded deck talent wise and we should be in the hunt immediately."
"I still believe Notre Dame is very relevant"
"Charlie is a good man"
The talent level is not as good as tom lemming would have you think. Did you see their defense? I know a bad defense when I see one, since we've been watching one here for the last 2 years. Aside from that kid from hawaii, who is talented on their defense? They might have a talented offense, if clausen and tate return. But that is unlikely. Their second string QB is going to be recovering from major knee surgery, and the entire team will be learning new schemes and language. So I don't see how anyone could predict them being in the hunt for much of anything in the next couple of years.
Highschool Juniors are 16 or 17. Meaning that ND has only won a single bowl game in their entire lives. Their last 4 coaches (including O'leary) have combined for and each averaged just over a .500 winning percentage. And that's while playing the service academies every year and getting repeatedly blown out by teams that finish in the top ten. Weis never beat anyone that finished in the top 20.
Charlie is an arrogant, two-faced, spineless hypocrite who is a disgrace to humanity and should not be viewed as a role model for anyone. To hell with Charlie Weis.
