It's a crummy strategy ethically - but sometimes a productive one - for other teams to start rumors about our commits if only to watch ND's fanbase bash a kid enough to push him away.
I'm glad to see no one going after Bivin so far.
Take that, Urban.
Add John Montelus to that list.
Apparently there was a rumor that he reached out to Ohio State and was in regular contact with them.
"I haven't talked to any other coaches. That's definitely a false rumor."

I despise ohio St and Urban Meyer will all of my heart. The jig is out on Urban. The "you're the next Harvin" line isn't working on recruits anymore. I admit at one time he was my "dream coach" for Notre Dame. It's pretty hard to hide your character coaching at any major university. Here is a great article from Sporting News.

I do not buy into rumors until I see it from official people, so my friend I am always in for that. I do like the thought of getting the board to stay calm as our highly ranked class is drawing interest from all, let's be calm and enjoy. Good call Shamrock.

Also, Hunter Bivin dropped me a line yesterday after shooting down the rumors that he'll be at Notre Dame on June 14 to join the group of pledges surrounding LB Alex Anzalone next weekend.
Anzalone is next. He will committ a few days after the visit just like Rochell.
With Urban Meyer at Ohio St, you can expect this to happen quite a bit.
A lot of rumors were also floated to "insiders" and websites that Mike Heuerman was in Ohio St. corner the entire time, a "silent verbal" - this was not close to the truth.
Everything Ohio St. is doing under Meyer is calculated and planned, including these "rumors" that somehow start making the headlines on sites.
Expect even more down the line... ND's staff is well aware and on top of all of this, have a very good handle of Meyer and his tactics.
That sounds like Bivin is expecting Anzalone to commit. All those commits with one guy that is not committed, I like our chances.
First of all even if a kid decommits no ND fan should be ripping him, these are 16 and 17 year olds making a decision that will impact their entire life they can and will change their mind.
Second, as previously stated this slimy cretin out of Cbus will say and do anything to get a recruit to sign. He honed this skill in the SEC in a place called the swamp and he took the mud up north with him. These rumors are designed to smoke out dissent so he can spin a story to these kids and their parents - it disgusting but it will happen.
Third, there are legitimate coaches who will try and stay in touch with our guys, and that is fine. If they switch because the school offers them something ND doesn't then good luck to them and their coach, that simple
