POTW 1/31/11 - 2/6/11
I agree with many posters in here, I don't think Anzalone was ND's to lose. I never got that feel that he was 100% invested into ND. I think Kelly and staff felt this too, hence the home visits every week.
IMO, he was just looking for a reason and I wish him the best, and hopefully a more decisive future.

What a punk.
when exactly did opposing coaches have the chance to talk to
nd recruits about kelly possibly leaving?
That's because the Anzalone's were in fact lying throughout his entire recruitment. I'd imagine the ND staff is probably pissed as well.
ND has plenty of options to round out this class though, and having a headcase like AA on the team is usually a negative anyway.

I thought you talked to him as recent as last night---he confirmed
he would be on campus this Sunday(not Saturday). What is going on---
does he change his mind that fast?
Seriously - some of you might want to take off your blouse and do some stretches or something. C'mon, man - a high school kid wants to go to Florida. Move on. Notre Dame will be just fine.

Honestly just lost a lot of respect for this dude.. Thought it was a close friendship
Sapp, posting a text from him that says he's all in like that is bound to get folks on here storming the gates .
Easy, folks, take the emotion out of it. Lets take it a step at a time. How about we focus on what happens with Kelly first; if he stays, there's opportunities to replace AA. If Kelly leaves, the majority of the class stays intact (you all read the thread with commit reactions). Lets be right, not first. That's the blessing and curse of twitter; for example, I don't think anyone knows if Kelly is even in the country or not.
I know, I know, the optics don't look good, but we don't have the info yet; what exactly does "he had an interview" mean. Did he literally sit down with the team? OR did his agent take a call and say "you know, he might be interested, let me get back to you?" Philly is interviewing Lovie Smith today. So clearly they didn't offer him the job.
Before folks start melting down about the situation, I ask you not to go all Les Miles on the kid. Folks here were cracking on the Hatter for his "Chesty" comments because we got the kid we wanted. This kid chose a different school; let him go. We've seen how it works out for the kids who never go all in on ND anyway.
Best of luck AA; you could've done great things here, but I hope you do great things anyway.
I don't expect folks to agree with these sentiments re: Kelly, but at least move on from the kid and focus on whos available, not who left...

So what does qualify as bad news if this isn't?
I'm not chicken little but if we are supposed to be on our way with competing with big time teams then how do we do it without big time talent.
Our recruiting classes are subpar in my opinion. Maybe comparable to a Louisville or other top 20 recruiting class.
We do not recruit size and speed the way we should.
I love this coaching staff but we gotta start signing Vandergoes (or whatever) on a regular basis. Not just hoping to get one once in awhile but expecting it.
Period end of declarative sentance.
I'm shutting myself down for the next few months.
Better and much more fun things I can be thinking about
Have fun ya'll
GO IRISH!! Beat Bama!!
