Irish This and That

Well the Notre Dame Freshman football student athlete class of 2012 and hopefully graduating class of 2016 is on-campus.  Orientation, physicals, dorm move-ins, fitness and endurance testing all getting knocked-out and out of the way.  Coach Paul Longo and the weight room will be their primary concerns until summer classes get underway and the 7- on - 7 drills.
You can view the class on the left side of the Blog.  Probably the biggest question mark is Freshman Davone Neal an “All Everything” cornerback and wide receiver out of Scottsdale Arizona.  He’s the kid who postponed signing until a couple of weeks after National Signing Day and then was AWOL from his official media announcement.  He then promptly transferred high schools for the third time in four years.  “Personal” and “Family” issues/reasons were the reported explanation.  Let’s hope he does not become a ‘high maintenance” casualty similar to Aaron Lynch and Tee Shepard.  BTW, Tee is "healthy" and going to play football for Fresno State.

Very little news coming out of the Bend during the “Dead Zone Period” which we all hate. 
Obviously everyone is upset over the surgery to Austin Collinsworth and the distinct possibility that he will be lost for the season due to a shoulder injury in the Blue-Gold Game.  Experience at the already thin defensive backfield positions did not need to get slimmer.  You can refresh your memory on the walking wounded at the left of the Blog.

The fate of Tommy Rees and Carlos Calabrese is still in legal limbo.  Mum’s the word coming out of the Bend although we would be surprised to find them out practicing 7- on -7 with the rest of the Team.

Another football player experiencing “limbo” is WR Devaris Daniels.  Ya know it seems the Irish never enjoy simple distractions do they.  Here is another one.  Daniels got busted for underage drinking in his own house along with 20+ other revelers.  You got to 1, wonder the thinking and 2, where were the parent(s)?

The Brian Kelly back surgery came as a complete surprise.  Yes, he is a pretty secretive guy and all however, he must really have been suffering last year.

Shelly is working on a post concerning our Subway Alumni Station predictions and Laura is watching the wire service for any news we can comment on.  We know posts have been few and far between, that can be good and/or bad.  Stay tuned and check back with us over the summer and the Dead Zone Period.
