Notre Dame DC Elko to Texas A&M

Per TexAgs, A&M is going to hire Mike Elko to be their next DC.  Seems good for Michigan, ND was much improved on defense in their one season under Elko.

A&M is spending as much money as they can to try and win a National Championship. I know they have the resources and that is the goal, but I just can't see them winning it all.

They have not won a NC since 1939. They really haven't been in position to be considered for one since...1939? Even the years they finished with one or none loses under Bear Bryant & RC Slocum they were ranked no higher than 5th at the end of the year. 

So what happens when after 5-7 years Jimbo gets them close, but no cigar?

At a minimum now, they'll be split the spotlight between Harbaugh and Fisher.  It's ridiculous that when it takes 2-3 years to recruit elite players, then 2-3 more to develop them into major contributors and Harbaugh didn't have a real 2015 class that it's this obsession by the dullards and the uninformed who don't grasp that you can't turn a dumpster fire into a winning program in two years.  But that is what the media is.  And there are lots of haters out there who love it.

Welcome to Harbaugh World, Jimbo ...

And all those defensive recruits that Michigan wanted and came in 2nd for... too bad the early signing period already happed, because I bet a few would have switched to Don Brown know that this happened.

My buddy is big ND fan. From their boards. "This all happened this morning. The rivals mod is saying last night at 9 pm Elko was messaging him asking about our commits down at the UA game."

Must have gotten a huge offer to get it done so quick. I think he was making around a million at ND.
