Dammit hotels in dublin have become expensive AF
is the ISD OL rumblings the same as what Singer posted?
As Christian reported earlier today, 2021 four-star offensive lineman Landon Tengwall will be on campus the weekend of March 21st.
However, he might not be the only one.
I just spoke to a source who said the plan is to have fellow four-star offensive linemen Nolan Rucci, Rocco Spindler and Wyatt Milum on campus at the same time along with Tengwall.
And yes, Notre Dame's unofficial Director of Recruiting Blake Fisher has cleared his schedule for that weekend.
I also have reason to believe things may be swinging back in Notre Dame's favor for Spindler. Notre Dame has ramped it up and it's been well received by Spindler. In addition to the staff, Fisher has put in a ton of work here in recent weeks.
tickets still aren’t on sale right?
Not that i could find. They are gonna be tough for me to get a hold on. Flight is gonna be hella cheap but Dublin is kinda short on hotels anyway
I have three hotel rooms reserved but I think if I get tickets I will only use 1, its reasonable in terms of pricing, I might be able to give you one room.
I cant commit to anything right now anyways as i just bought a new house and i dont know how much money and time it will take to get everything okay
If you have an extra let me know
I need to get on this but I plan to stay with my friend for a few days at least but probably should book a room.
You fly Ryan?
if need be, not my favorite option but for such a short flight its manageable
I will stay up late at least once next season to see Chip Long wearing one of those stupid mock turtlenecks with the leis that hawaii makes their coaches wear.
Oh it’s hell. But I always enjoyed basically being a shoe-in/everyone stayed away from exit row seating. I swear they just use pilots in training, and I about shat myself on every landing.
Woof. Don't do it Chip.
I really hate flying regardless though. So its not like ryanair is that much worse
did we ever expect anything else?
when you go 14-2 vs ACC last three years, you know they are going to be trying everything to help their teams
Claypool's numbers from the Senior Bowl...if he can run in the 4.4s, he won't make it out of the second round
Senior Bowl Check In:
Height: 6-4.3 (2nd tallest among 15 WR's)
Weight: 229 (1st among WR's)
Arms: 33 1/8" (tied for 2nd among WR's)
Hands: 10" (tied for 1st among WR's)
Wingspan: 80" (2nd among WR's)
I realize this is an outrageously deep year for wide receivers but the lists I've seen have Claypool as like the 17th best receiver and not even in the top 150 overall players, which just makes no sense to me. He's better than that, and to me he seems like ND's best NFL prospect this year (or at least the highest ceiling - WRs are always risky).
If Claypool tests off the charts he’ll go well ahead of #17 WR
Claypool would be a 1st round pick in any normal year. Very interested to see where he goes this year
I'd love it if the Bengals took Burrows and Claypool.
Pipe dream I know. He'd be a monster in Cincy.
I think you're right, I just don't really understand why he's down that low to begin with. Unless the experts really hate his route running or something nuanced like that, I'm not sure what the knock on him is. He plays fast for someone his size, blocks well, has great hands and body control.
My only theory on it is he's rated low for the same reason ND never moved up in the polls after the Michigan game.... no one was watching.
I've seen a ton of ppl on Twitter who feel he needs to bulk up and play TE.... That is asinine. Completely negates his strengths as a big, fast we/ST guy
Actual draft analysts or random people? Because yeah that’s a terrible opinion
Multiple people covering the senior bowl have suggested as much. That said he was on a number of top performer lists and was one of only 6 players (Troy Pride included) to hit over 20 mph on the day. Think he will continue to dispel athleticism concerns over the next few months and jump into the second round.
I think Claypool came on late last season and most pundits aren't factoring the last half of the season in their evaluation.
for the record, I remember comparing Claypool to Mike Evans when I saw his HS film (even though he was basically playing against the JV in Canada) but a slightly slower version. His build/size/playing style was so similar to Evans.
I doubt he goes in the first round like Evans, but if he runs in the low 4.4s like Boykin did, I wouldn't rule him out of it either.
I don't know any good Canadians
My personal list of good canadians, no bias. In order
Jesse Palmer's brother played TE for the Irish. He's Canadian. But maybe I'm the only one on here old enough to remember that.
You're not alone. I played football in the snow against him on South Quad after one particularly brutal storm. Fun game. Good dude.
Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame
With his size (6-4, 229 pounds), Claypool looks like the type of target who will post up and out-physical defenders to the football. And while he is capable of doing that, his freaky athleticism has really stood out during practices as the trait that could separate him from others on draft boards. On tape, Claypool looked very upright in his routes, which made it tough for him to shake press and create snap out of his breaks. But during drills, he is playing much more loose to defeat the jam and separate at the top of the route with sink. Claypool is known for his impressive athleticism, but he is using that fluidity more effectively as a route-runner during practice compared with his college tape.
Anyone know a way to get tickets to the Wisconsin game?
A lot of people said the same thing about Lazard from ISU last year. He ended up being fine for Green Bay. Claypool is better than Lazard.
so why are we playing 6 ACC teams this year?
That's interesting. It looks like we also play 6 ACC games in 2023, but we only play 4 in 2022 and 2024.
I would guess we either already negotiated games with one of the six ACC teams this year prior to that deal, or we agreed to do 6 and 4 in some years to accommodate other scheduling commitments in 2022 and 2024.
PSA: if you guys are in Indiana Fan Duel has a promo going on where the more people bet the IU MSU game tonight the more they move the line in IUs favor. Started at IU+1
It currently sits at IU +41.5
Max bet is $50 but it's a free $50. I can get you a referal code for a bonus If you haven't bet on there before if anyone's interested.
Kelly was on the Stick to Football podcast that went up today. He was supportive of Kmet declaring for the draft which is progress I guess.
Beating a dead horse here, but Matt Freeman said upwards of 10 players were prepared to transfer if Long was brought back
That would explain the swiftness in which he was fired
it could be me but the way people talk about long i dont remember happening before
agreed, they really kept it under wraps there
I think it also explains why our offense sucked in the first half the year and felt so disjointed. Long couldn't get along with players or the other coaches. BK really should have stepped in much earlier, but the Mich game happened and then he really didn't have a choice but to step in
just drawing conclusions on my part but wouldn't be surprised if Long was the reason Michael Young transferred so abruptly either
Yep. It’s been confirmed by mods that Long is the reason he transferred
It’s been pretty telling that his best job option at moment is Hawaii
When neither Memphis or Arkansas even talked to him about OC, that was pretty telling.
I’m sure they reached out to Kelly to see what happened
