But does anyone know if the rumors of 'Aaron Lynch wanting to return to ND' have any substance? I've been seeing it on a few other boards.
We have done fine without Lynch but he is a great player. Would have been nice if he had stayed. He isn't coming back to ND.

there was another thread on here about same topic. However, two B&G writers (I believe Jason and Steve) quickly shot it down. I believe them. No worries about Lynch

There was substance to him wanting to come back and as Jason noted when this popped up it wasn't a realistic option for him plain and simple. That's all that has ever been state anywhere including here.
Where are you from irishcajun? I live in baton rouge.
It was my understanding that coach Kelly said NO!
Lake Charles..can't wait for the Irish to shut up all these SEC fans I deal with daily. Its tough down here. They laugh at the thought of this game even being competitive. NCG can't get here soon enough.
Pretty much based on reports from Jason and others. They laughed at the notion
I would not have considered his return a bad thing but it would have to have been handled properly. He made mistake and that is not unusual for young men of that age to do. I really do not get the hate. It is obvious nothing could be worked out and that's that. He obviously could not meet whatever criterion the staff would have placed on him or they were uncomfortable with taking him back. I wish he would have been more mature in regards to leaving but to think he could have not been an asset to this team is somewhat misguided in my opinion. It might have needed a maturity that he does not yet have however.
Yes, I absolutely agree that Aaron made a mistake like young people will do. But I think his not "returning to ND" has to do more with team chemistry and not a dislike or hate for Aaron. He has and is a great talent, but he will have to live and learn from his mistake like we all have had to do. I am certain that this learning experience will benefit him in his future endeavors. Here's hoping he is a huge success!
Regardless of what anyone thinks, Lynch transferring back to ND makes absolutely no sense. He will have to sit out another year, and will then be eligible for the NFL draft. He was a classic example of addition by subtraction.
this ship has sailed. We are doing just fine.

This has to be a joke. I'm not sure what the rules are with transfer students who haven't played and transfer back to the original school but I assume he would have to sit out a year.
Real man vs Boy, Teo vs Lynch. Real man: stayed tough for his teammates and didnt even leave for his GFs funeral during the season...Boy: jetted because he couldnt hack being away from his girl after one season. Good riiddance, book closed, see you when we see you.
