ND loses 4/5* recruit Deontay Greenberry (WR) to Houston
They're just losing kids left and right aren't they?
Who else have they lost?
They lost someone, can't remember who, to Ohio. And at that time they were all convinced they were getting Arik Armstead, who they didn't get. And I think there was one other guy a few weeks ago, but I can't remember where he went.
He probably woke up this morning with the realization that getting screamed at for the next 4 years wasn't an ideal situation.
that is all.
Worst band ever.
But I don't even consider them a band
While I'm confident that no suprises will happen. I feel karma dictates we should wait till all our LOIs are in before we laugh at other schools losing recrutis at the last minute.
Well since they're all in now, feel free to laugh away
NDNation is freaking out:
"Now is the time for a collective effort
This class just became an utter embarrassment. Absolutely inexplicable. This rivals Ty's 2004 class in terms of utter incompetence by the coaching staff.
But don't worry, we'll all have fun rooting for Roby Toma in the Pro Bowl in a few years."
"Classmate's Comment -- "He got paid off.""
"We are going on season 3, and there is no indication of positive trajectory...the Greenberry switch is icing on top of icing on the cake...all of the concerns about the unqualified head coach and staff lightweights are valid...there is no explanation for this seasons meltdown and there is no indication that things are headed in the right direction
Why are we surprised with the mediocre class? We went 8-5 with bad losses."
I thought they were pulling in a pretty good class...but then I look at Rivals rankings and they're down around #19.
They're losing Floyd and really needed a playmaker for the WR position. Greenberry was an absolute must at 6'3", they better hope Tailer Jones steps it up, or DaVaris Daniels turns into a playmaker, otherwise everyone will just double team Tyler Eifert.
I'm not sure if George Atkinson can play WR. Luckily for them they will have plenty of playmakers on defense, and they're going to need them.
My ND friend is calling him their top recruit, even with Gunner Kiel, due to how much they needed him.
He goes by Dingle.
To Houston? Lulz.
They apparently hired his high school coach, but that doesn't make it hurt any less to lose someone to Conference USA. My friend is currently raging. I'm keeping my mouth shut to be supportive.
This works more often than we'd think. When Mitch Mustain was the #1 QB recruit in the country, Arkansas got him by bringing his high school coach (Gus Malzahn) in as offensive coordinator. Its pretty rare for a guy to go from HS coach to SEC offensive coordinator (not a positions coach), but it happened. Ironically, Malzahn has had a much better career than Mustain.
This used to be rampant in basketball. A kid's dad would be an "assistant coach" at the school he committed to. They finally made a rule about it, but it only applies to basketball. With the Saban story a few days ago, and now this. I think it would be wise to apply this rule to football as well.
If I'm a receiver and I saw how badly Floyd and Decker were used this year (mostly because of the tire fire at QB), I wouldn't want to sign with ND either. Plus, Houston has the type of passing offense that lets you put up massive numbers, and the pros seem more open to drafting those guys than the QBs from those systems. Plus, the whole coach hiring stuff definitely applies.
Does this open the door for Diggs?
Okay hold one sec...
Oh I love how the CFB gods show no mercy on Notre Dame...
didn't houston just lose there coach? I mean they had a great year, but it was kinda one of those flash in a pan years....
I just want to let you know, we're always here for you. Signed, The Michigan Football family.
Before we poke too much fun, I would like to remind everyone the same thing happened to us with beaver...
Beaver took off well before signing day, so we actually had time to find a replacement, unlike ND (probably). What ever happened to that other quarterback recruit anyway...
I'm just as happy that Notre Dame's class is imploding compared to Michigan signing a tremendous class. Just delicious.
He must have realized it's hard to catch passes when the QB has a habit of fumbling the ball before he can throw it.
Sure, but I thought that the chance to drive drunk and not miss any playing time would have been a good draw at ND.
Seriously, Brian Kelly can kiss my ass for that one.
Kelly took a dig at Greenberry. This guy has NO class.
That quote really is shitty.
always make me smile.
They are die-hard, and they even hate Kelly already - they were pissed ND gave him an extension.
I thought hating the head coach always goes hand-in-hand with being a ND fan.
