this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Rees, Calabrese arrested
I wonder what Brian Kelly thinks about this.
My guess, if Rees wins the starting job, then he will have learned his lesson, if not, we could see a lofty penalty to try and :prove a point"
So it should be safe to assume that Reese will get something similar. If he does get punished it means he wansn't usefull to Kelly and he is trying to prove a point. I am guessing he will do the what is good for him and not the right thing. Funny how this works at a religious institution which should be held at a higher standard.
what with Golson likely taking his job, obviously Rees was just trying out for special teams.
he's special, all right...
Sons of Notre Dame? At a party? With adult beverages?
What color will Brian Kelly's face be today?
hung over. His head will be hurting to much to be build up the rage to explode.
Please upload the picture of Kelly's head essploading. Kelly supports kids drinking and misbehaving, they won't miss one game.
...his private reaction perhaps, yes.
It probably would have been easier foe Rees and Calabrese to just transfer, of course.He will chat with them at some point, and it will be thus:
If Kelly's head almost explodes after an INT, what is this going to do? Here's your shot Gunner.
 Reese turns 21 May 22nd. Couldn't just wait a bit longer? Way to go pulling a 'Floyd'. Just pack your shit and move back to the dorms now
Right, because we all waited until we were 21 to drink.
Right, because we all had a shot at being the starting QB at a top college football program when we could legally drink in less than three weeks.
Who thinks he just started drinking three weeks before turning 21?
I don't think it's necessarily about starting drinking so much as it is about being careful now that you're on the home stretch. You've made it this far without problems, why take the risk?
...because he made it this far without a problem. Why would he suddenly be like "oh hey, it's almost my birthday, imma take the next few weeks off from partying even though I've had no problems thus far in my collegiate career. You know, just in case."
The guy likes to party, can't hate on that
"Everybody kicks people."
-Tommy Rees (riffs & variations of TP remix)
to kick a cop and get maced!
Not everybody's the perfect underclassman in the world, I mean, everybody gets drunk...drinks underage, shots for you, shots for me, whatever
Not everybody gets drunk. Some of us are thankful to have avoided that experience.
Spare us the "holier than thou", please. The point is, as a 19 year old myself, I can recognize the difference between drinking and having fun, and assaulting a police officer because you're just downright irresponsible.
I don't know. My night doesn't really start until I've kicked a cop or two.
According to the article, he turns 20, not 21, on May 22nd.
Maybe because he turns 20 on May 22nd. He's only 19 right now.
Rees, 19, was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement, felony battery to law enforcement, minor consumption and public intoxication, according to police.
Finally some good news for ND fans? Other than Calabrese losing Rees may be a blessing in disguise
which is a good thing for us. Brian Kelly is reportedly still skeptical about Golson starting due to some attitude issues, inconsistency, and a lack of understanding of the playbook. That last bit is why they played the spring game with no play clock. Golson doesn't have the ability to get the plays off on time yet.
Tommy Rees is a complete idiot
"He [Rees] was at a party of my friends off campus. Cops came to warn them to turn down the music. Tommy goes up to a cop and kicks him. Not warranted at all. None of them were getting arrested, and he kicked them. Then some other cop comes up to him and maces him."
And so the return to glory continues yet another year.
I think you mean years.
If the few details in the story are true, he is indeed a complete idiot. As the linked story notes, classes ended Wednesday. What it didn't say, is that final exams are next week. He should be out on bond by then anyway, but it's not quite like the semester is completely over at ND.
There's a sports radio host here in Oklahoma who played QB at OSU (ntosu) who is a bit of a hot head. He said when he was still in school, he always partied with at least a few of his O-linemen. They protected him from opposing players on the field and protected him from himself off the field by pulling his ass back from confrontations when he got drunk or stupid. It sounds like Rees could have used an O-lineman or two to do the same thing for him.
I wonder if his face turned purple as he was kicking the cop.
"Nothing good happens after midnight"
The play are now willing to do anything to get kicked off the team.
Doesn't he know when cops come to break up the party you're supposed to run out the back, guess he's not a scrambling quarterback!
Rees needed something to improve his Dutchboy status...Look at his mug shot..Needs some warm milk and a hug from his mother
That's the cold stare of a hardened criminal right there. Also looks like Ronnie from Jersey Shore changed his name and started playing football for ND.
He had to kick him. He was going to throw a beer at the cop, but it landed 2 feet in front of him.
...a good thing for ND and Rees in the long run perhaps.
so he released him.
Pretty sure Rees will still be the starting qb when we play them.
I'm glad we got to hear this news from you first.
I am the ND quarterback!
