God you guys crack me up.
|19 hours 46 min ago||I screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOOO||
I screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOOO when I heard about that extension they signed him to. I have a lot more confidence in Kelly than I did Weis. Weis suffered from the same disease that ultimately ended RichRod. Lack of a real defense.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Fresh Intel: There is less||
There is less than a 0% chance that Eddie will attend ND.
Saying that, ND officially denied his request to be let out of his LOI and the appeal process is in motion. Sadly for him these things don't end well for the perspective athlete.
From another corner of the debate, there could actually be an academic hiccup. Rumour is that its possible a failed course is causing the issue.
EV's dad has tweeted that once EV's story comes out it will be clear what happened. Mum is the word since the pending litigation
Colleges from across the country are supporting ND in not letting him out of his LOI, will set a bad precident. ND hate vs UCLA is very real at this point.
EV has a few options. Enroll at ND and honor his LOI. Play 1 year, transfer and redshirt and still have 3 years to play. Disregard said LOI, sign where ever he wants but he will then have to enroll in the school and cannot play or participate in year 1 and loses 1 year of eligibility after that. In effect 3 years to play 3 years, as opposed to 5 years to play 4.

Purdue and MSU will be dropped, don't worry about that. But that is due more to the fact you guys are going 9 game conf schedule.
Stanford is a west coast recruiting trip alternating years with our chief rival, USC.

They must be chicken. Should we rename to Bawk-14?
|3 days 4 hours ago||So more information is||
So more information is trickling out. Apparently on NSD ND accidentally put his name on a press kit list of signees for the day and Vanderdoes still had not made his announcement. The family was pretty bent about this and it was still an issue. Also of note that he would like to be closed to home. And while UCLA is closer than SouthBend, its still a 6+ hour trip from his current residence.
Secondly there is a supposed "personal" issue that was discovered after his LOI had been sent in. And when I say discovered, I mean literally hours later.
The Vanderdoes family, as a result, has filed appeals to the LOI board seeking a null on his letter so that he can go play elsewhere right away, they aren't having any of it.
ND coaches are all but hollaring "tamper" charges against UCLA as its been evident over social media that there has been contact between the two parties. As we all know this is Verboten. Expect to see this end shortly with the stipulation that he can transfer to anyone not on future schedules and UCLA.

You realize that is a Bama fan? That whole post was cut and pasted.
|3 days 4 hours ago||Tee Shepard didn't have the||
Tee Shepard didn't have the grades, he didn't even get in to Oklahoma afterwards. Aaron Lynch loved his girlfriend/fiance too much and Devonte Neal wanted to be with his baby mama. Greenberry bailed at the last minute due to academic issues and was Tee Shepards cousin. Greenberry actually called the ND coaching staff the week before NSD and told them that Shepard was speaking to USC and starting to lean that way.

Clearly nonviolent humour doesn't translate well over the internet.

Arkansas and VT. Wow. Don't go too crazy. Purdue and MSU will be dropped thusly, and when you guys go out like a bitch and drop the 2014 game then we'll talk.

Wait... What? Do you know what thats like? After all its been 8+ years.

Thats because Gundy is a grown man.

And if he went to Michigan he'd get to play the likes of Appalachian St and the tour of the MAC conference. And in off years the Michigan Directional School Presidents cup!
|3 days 20 hours ago||Kelly won't do that. Barring||
Kelly won't do that. Barring any teams on the schedule in the next 4 years I am sure if EV transfers it will be to a UCLA/Cal.. Certainly not USC.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Its not academic. The word||
Its not academic. The word on the street is cold feet, but there is friction between both camps.
BTW, to the OP, Matt James fell of a balcony at Spring Break and died... Kinda not really his choice to not enroll..
I am perplexed as to how you go through the recruiting process. Sign your LOI, because you know its the place you want to be. Then don't even enroll at school? His best bet is to enroll for the year and then transfer. This gives him the next year to redshirt and sit out his penalty year and then have time to play. Or go JUCO..
Either way, crazy.

Actually it was Willingham. The ruiner of atleast 2 programs while working on his golf game.

So what will you guys be called when the 2014 game is killed by UM?
|1 week 5 hours ago||Bunting going to UM you||
Bunting going to UM you mean? Meh, we got Weishar. Down year for TEs imo.
|1 week 11 hours ago||Don't cry for us. We'll be||
Don't cry for us. We'll be all right.
We can't all start off with a tour of the MAC and the corpse of the BigEast. I am sure you will have no trouble going 10-2 after we stain your own field turf with your deceased LBs when the Irish Chocolate package is inserted and when Urbz gets done rolling you for the 11th time in 13 years.

Seriously though, I love that area. Lots to do.
|1 week 12 hours ago||No time to let the corpse||
No time to let the corpse cool off, got a business to run.
Some of the old segments they played today were my favorites. The "KramerBlows" and "BelfourBlows" are classic.
My mornings are now reduced to listenting to my own music, which isn't bad mind you, but makes for a longer day.

Didn't see this coming.
Atleast you guys land Peppers.
|1 week 1 day ago||So you mean kind of like NDs||
So you mean kind of like NDs mystical NC game appearance last year? The sun shines on every dogs ass once in awhile.
The problem here is that Urban is a superior coach. And by the time he is done putting his tramp stamp on the BIGs backs he will have set sail into the sunset.
Hoke went 11-2, yes. Backed into a BCS game based on popularity vs merit and beat a half assed team in VT. But a Sugar bowl is a Sugar bowl, good work.
8-5 the next year. Which is the outlier and which is the truth? Who knows. I always liked Hoke as a hire I think he'll do well. Double digit wins will be the norm? Wow. Put the refer down son.

Football is the money machine, therefore, it is the only sport that matters. Everyone can shut the hell up and accept that football is bank rolling them and be happy.

Wowzers. Impressive first slate for your crack at the inaugural playoff.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm not happy about it.||
I'm not happy about it. Believe me.
As far as basketball is concerned your most notable team was paid to play and didn't win anything.
And we would not have lost to OSU. They barely beat you. You, on the other hand, are on the road to another 10 straight losses to OSU. I wonder when they will tire of playing you guys? Scratch that, its an easy win for them on their schedule.
|1 week 3 days ago||So Yost wasn't an instrument||
So Yost wasn't an instrument of preventing them from joining way back when?
Sounds eerily similar, doesn't it?
They stuck to independence after Yost and then Crisler told them to go pound salt in regards to joining the Big10.
Some other notable quotes for you:
I worded it wrong, I meant to say I would like to see UM over Purdue.
The breaks I was referring to were instituted by Yost and then Crisler.
As for recruiting, on the current roster we hold 46 players who are not from the BIG footprint.
|1 week 4 days ago||I am going to start this off||
I am going to start this off by saying, stop crying. ND begged and grovel'd to join the BIG way back in the day and were denied on several fronts. So now you want us in and we say no and we are playing dirty pool?
Right so 2016 featuring @Texas, Stanford @MSU, Miami, USC, Virginia Tech, is a cup cake schedule? As for not playing the top teams in the ACC in the same year, we have FSU and Lousiville in 2014. Give me a break.
Frankly I'll hate to see this series die because it means a lot to me and my family that are mostly UM fans.
As for recruiting? Don't think ND is afraid of you there either, we finished 3rd to your 7th on 247s 2013 rankings.
ND doesn't want to be a regional team. We play a national schedule. We recruit nationally. You recruit MI, OH, IL and PA with a couple of outliers as your 2013 recruit roster indicates. We signed kids from FLA, CA, TX, OH, MI, MD, NJ, VA, DC, AZ...
While I would prefer to see UM vs Purdue, there is more history between MSU & Purdue than there is with UM. Blame whoever but I think UM was the culprit for the long breaks here.
Besides, think of the epic bowl games that will come of this. Genius. UM vs ND in the NCG.
Or you can just accept the reality of college football. Money.
