I am sick to my stomach. Just lost the most talented player on the team. And reopens the door about whether ND can recruit top athletes from the South (read enough to have a SEC level defense).
USF is his likely destination. Going to O$U doesn't get him back to Florida like he wants.

Move on ! The kid had not bought in to the program. We will carry on without him !!
We'll be fine. Initially, it stings. But with Tuitt and KLM at DE and Nix returning to the middle, we're going to be just fine. Yes, they are not as explosive as Lynch, but I don't think this will hurt as bad as we might think. We have Day and Jones enrolled/enrolling as well as Springmann and a lot of other young talent on our DL. If there is one position we can afford to lose a player, other than OL it's our DL. I wish he could stay, but if the kid isn't happy, I don't blame him for wanting to transfer if that's the case.

Now that the initial shock is wearing off and I don't feel like throwing things anymore, I hope it works out for him and I understand he wasn't happy. I'd rather have a guy playing that wants to be there anyways. Glad i didn't buy the jersey just yet.

Our DL is still going to be an 8 out of 10, just not a 9 like it would've been with Lynch. Nonetheless, it's still probably our strongest position group on the team IMO.

Time for the "sky is falling" crowd to dust off their keyboards. They have been rather silent since ND's recent string of verbals.
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
Troy Niklas to DE, anyone?

I thought the samething why not move him back over
Worth noting here is the lack of response in the Twitterverse from fellow players regarding this situation. When Tee left there were best wishes abound, but this kid's attitude and individual self-promotion was a detriment to the locker room in general. Our D-Line will be fine, Day will now get his chance to shine and KLM will be a beast in this kids abscence. We will reload just fine from this, one player does not a defense make. Moving on.
Nah. Still have KLM to start. Schwenke and Hounshell can provide depth along with Springmann and Day (and possibly Jarron Jones.) If we can bring in Rochell and possibly even Latham, we'll be just as set as we were before. This is a still a strength on our roster; now it's an 8 out of 10 instead of a 9.5... Let Niklas develop at TE. That's a spot he can be special at.
