and not Gunner.
Kiel enrolled at ND - per CBSSports
If true, Gunner Keil's school selection makes Yuri Wright's official visit process look well thought out and tightly organized.
He's already been committed to two schools. One more for the trifecta!
Maybe we should give it a name,... " The Kiel Trifecta "
Works for me, anyone else?
Woo Hoo!! My 100th post!!!
Ta- Dah!!! I made it!!
What!?!?! No Bells!? No Whistles?!?
No Confetti magically showering down from the sides of my browser?
No vocal of a awesome babe saying“ Congratulations, (Insert Name Here)?
I really expected more from you UMich EECS folks! (sigh)
So Gunner has decommitted from IU and LSU so far. A little indecisive ?? How the heck will he react on third and eight with PeeWee bearing down on him in the ND backfield ?? I can't wait to see what happens ...
drop and enroll at LSU....
highly rated recruit qb's to dissappoint at notre dame. big whoop.
Why play for a team that won't pull its starter when you can play for a team that pulls its starter halfway into the season opener?
"With Gunner Kiel at Notre Dame, now he can be named starter of spring game only to be benched at halftime"
Tommy Rees transfers in 3...2...1....
Finally, somebody that can fill the shoes of the Heisman sensation that was Ron Powlus.
Spread (Hendrix), Pro (Kiel), or zero in on Floyd and turn the ball over (Rees)?
Is salivating over this pick up for the Irish
To be fair, Coach Lou is salivating over everything.
Edit: Dammit, gotta be quick on the draw to make a Holtz joke.
On the other, despite the overall strength of LSU, why the hell would a top pro-style QB want to play there? LSU throws a la Michigan in the pre-Harbaugh days.
You mean pre-Anthony Carter days
can we bitch about this post? gunner has nothing to do with the uofm.
going to an opponent - who is a rival of ours - we play frequently.
I'd say he has something to do with Michigan.
On another note, I wonder if all the sports writers who lauded him for going to Indiana and being so steady will recant those statements.
lol. just wanted to complain. like how peoole complain about rr post.
if only because my first name is Kiel. all these posts make me feel narcisistic.
Kiel committed to ND. ND is our rival. We play ND for the next 4 years. Thus we'll be playing against Kiel for the next 4 years. I, along with others, like to know what's happening with our opponents. Don't forget that we recruited him for a while. Besides the #1 QB recruit in the nation commits to IU, switches his commitment to LSU and then switches his commitment to ND, and you don't want to hear about that? Are you not a college football fan?
This kid is a nut job.
Man, his recruitment got kind of weird. Not really the best sign in a QB usually. Family stuff kind of reminds me of Forcier. It should be interesting to see how the QB situation plays out in South Bend. Do they go with Hendrix, who was the annointed one only to have everyone lose faith after the bowl game? Or the RS FR Gohlson (sp?) who is a true dual threat, or the highly touted true FR with some apparent issues on the side. Either way, I hope it ends up positive for UM when we play them.
As an aside, what's going on with LSU. I've been reading that there some real discord amoung the team and Les Miles. Part of the reason why so many juniors jumped ship early.
Athletically, it's a shame he didn't stay committed to Indiana. He could have really helped them find their way out of the football gutter.
Kiel will get two Heisman trophies and at least two NC games at ND.
Answer: Umm, not so much.
that must be really tough, playing football at LSU and taking classes at ND.
That would make for a hell of a travel schedule.
When I first saw the OT...I thought the samething. The weridest recuritment sofar this recuriting season.
follows in the footsteps of Rees and Christ of grossly underachieving. At least when they play us.
Yeah, you gotta say Christ pretty much overachieved, founding a major religion without the help of Twitter and Facebook. Or reading.
and the whole water into wine thing... very impressive. Maybe I should have just said "Dayne"...
Rees was not even close to being a top recruit and really had no expectations coming onto campus. If anything, he has overachieved.
Errrr.... I think you meant Quinn. No, that's not right. Hmmmm........ you must have meant Clausen. Don't you know he went there to "win championships?"
has high-maintenance flake written all over him. We'll see how he responds the first time he walks off the field to a purple-faced Brian Kelly screaming at him.
EDIT: not intended to be racially demeaning to purple people
But who else is giddy about his decision? We all know it doesn't matter how highly touted a recruit is; it only matters that he is a QB going to ND so he isn't going to be any good. The fact Irish fans will now be grasping onto something that will eventually fall right into their faces makes me happy.
He was at the Indiana orientation at noon. Lol .... Until I see this kid in a uniform I am not buying.
He's the highest rated QB to be recuited by ND since, ah, whatshisname. Love those Irish traditions!
just what the heck recruits find so appealing about ND. Seems they have a lot of red flags going against them, like coaching meltdowns, lack of consistancy throughout the season, lack of (you know) winning, and all. Strange for kids picking between us and them to look at all the ways Michigan is better and pick ND anyways.
This, only more so:
1) South Bend has the charm of a carbuncle on a homeless guy's backside
2) The students are near uniformly upper middle class privledged snots
3) Students are obsessed with dorms. Your social identity revolves around dorms. No, seriously, dorms.
4) The Indiana booze police are jackbooted thugs out to stamp out a good time
Let's hope he has the same problem when he drops back to pass...
- There will be limited weapons at his disposal
- Gunner mis-fires early and often
- His sights are off
- This all backfires for the Irish
I can't help but wonder why Gunner would shoot himself in the foot here by going to ND. I ammo confident in our QB's for the future though.
I don't really get why. He probably isn't going to get to start at ND until he's a junior, where he could probably have a shot right away at LSU, as well as a MUCH better shot at a national title.
Rees (Jr.) is the most experienced, but might be lost without Floyd.
Hendrix (R So.) is a 4* recruit that a lot of people like for the starting position
Kiel (Fr.) is the nation's top QB recruit
No way they balance 3 guys like that. My instinct says that Rees starts, Hendrix transfers after 2012 and Kiel redshirts; or Hendrix takes over the job, Rees transfers and Brian Kelly has to convince Kiel to stay with only 2 years of elligibility after Hendrix graduates.
What does everyone else think?
You're forgetting about Gholson (sp?) people in the ND program are REALLY big on this guy. He redshirted the 2011 season I believe. It's not hard to envision Kiel not starting for quite a few years and even then might only get 1 full year if Gholson stays for all 5. It just doesn't make sense unless Kiel th
