"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
Notre Dame - A New Player Departs
Maybe he's not a fan of poultry.
Theres nothing inherently unfun about a private Catholic school. They're not all as isolated and self contained as ND.
on his visits. Unless the escorts (for lack of better word) took him to the only fun place on campus. Then, when he arrived as a student, he discovered there wasn't a second fun place.
"Now that you're here, we're going to take you to the funnest place in all of South Bend. Chicago!"
I am required to upvote this, but do so gladly.
...and the escorts were gone.
As was the fun.
ha your comment reminds me of that scene in the program when omar epps steps off the bus at camp to no fanfare
another worm shit freshman!
I've always suspected that Brian Kelly The Recruiter and Brian Kelly The Coach are two very different people. I think kids show up and realize he's not the same guy that was sweet talking them when they were simply recruiting targets -- purely speculation and guessing by me though.
Combine this with ND being sold as a great fun place and all if that comes crashing down once they get on campus and start their classes.
Brian Kelly is a jerk.
to be lumped in with Brian Kelly
This is video will never get old for me. After he ignores the pleas that the guantlet is facing the wrong way, he sends his player through, potentially risking injury, certainly risking embarassment. Upon finally recognizing that everyone else was right, and he was wrong, he proclaims, "You guys are freaking kidding me!"
Agreed. There's always talk of de-recruiting kids once they get on campus. This one probably wasn't ready to be treated like a noob freshman.
Or maybe the kid just showed up to campus and realized it wasn't a great fit for him. It does happen. Happened with me and Michigan. There are some things you just don't realize on visits.
"No man was expected to start. Could this be a result of amplified intensity on the part of the coaching staff?"
Thank you, I now know where the root of my nightmares tonight will be coming from.
I've watched this 5 times through and still can't figure it out. Just wondering how his shirt magically fell down while both his hands were pulling down his pant legs?
Looks like the kid is hiding in his left pant leg when he starts. That would put the poor kids head right in the guys......
The kid is in the head
Yeah, he's walking awkwardly when he has it on and you can see it move when he sits on it. Still a good trick as long as you don't drop the little girl.
I'm pretty sure there's a trap door in the stage. Like you said the head moves as he's sitting on it. I don't think it is big enough to hold her.
I, too, think she's in his left pant leg. You can see a bulge there when he walks out, and the bulge gets smaller as he's sitting on top of the big blue head.
He just kind of tosses the head wherever. He wouldn't have been able to place it exactly where it needs to be. Plus I don't think they built a stage with a trap door just for this little trick.
It looks like the head moves, she might have been in there. Why else would he go back and sit on it? I did a google image search and can only find the gif, not the whole video or a reference to where it comes from.
His purple faced sideline rants should be enough to let you know what your ND experience will be like.
SOME GOOD FUCKING NEWS
It definitely seems that Notre Dame has had much more than their fair share of players who leave the team shortly after arriving on campus or who never show up at all, and that has been more frequent since Brian Kelly has been there. I can't say why with any certainty, but my guess would be a lot of people fall in love with the beautiful campus, the football tradition and great facilities but when the recruiting pitches stop and it becomes all about hard work, South Bend, Indiana is kind of a boring place, it is a very conservative atmosphere and there is less of a party scene than at some of the other schools they were recruited by.
Plus getting rained on by spittle from a purple faced leprechaun probably gets old pretty quick too.
I actually hire a purple-faced leprechaun to spit on me. To each his own, I guess.
His offer sheet was underwhelming, with Missouri being the most notable offer besides ND.
But ND's LB corp is not deep, and Sykes looked somewhat promising. Not a huge hit this year, but not something they will shrug off as nothing.
If he did indeed transfer ultimately, then it should be noted perhaps that his other offers included the likes of Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Iowa State, South Florida and CIncinnati. According to the Elkhart Truth, he visited Syracuse in December before deciding to go to Notre Dame, although that perhaps means nothing without first hearing the actual reason he is leaving the team and what his definition of a "better fit" might be. If nothing else, it is a curious thing to leave a team within weeks of arriving.
there could only be 1 reason...UNIFORMZ/Jersey #. Must have not been given the #2 without earning it
He is 6'4" now and too tall to play DB.
The Tobias episodes (besides his new girlfriend) were one of the best things about season 4.
no one has ever arrived at Michigan and left within the first week or two. Not recently at least. /s
That was his point. Glad they left and f ND.
Do we need a new fucking thread every time this happens? it happens A LOT.
To Hell with Notre Dame.
All signs point to academic failure with admissions. So getting tired of this.
wouldn't he had known that before he arrived on campus?
About this time.
What is going on over there? They have an unusually high rate of people just randomly leaving when they get there. It must be a new tradition they're starting up.
