You're Welcome America!

Don't wish away your summer thinking FOOTBALL!...

When I was a kid the school year couldn't go fast 
enough and seemed to take centuries to end...

Then summer break would come and I'd blink my eyes and
the next grade was open and ready for enrollment!

This is the dilemma of the football fan.
We want to see our team play...but hell the sunshine just 
arrived and we've been looking forward to that all winter!

People e-mail me for updates?...well right now
we are in a holding pattern!

We'll talk recruiting later in this article but as 
far as players?...nothing is happening!

So...Updates will come..but your gonna have to find
a balance to your excitement!

So...what's the balance?...Here is the balance!

It's called "Captain Led 7 on 7 practices" 

In Charlie's last season I had the pleasure of being in town 
in June and was able to sit in on a few of these "coach-less" 

What these are all about is CHEMISTRY...the ability for a QB 
to time a know his patterns and how he breaks from
 cuts, or the speed in which he hits his marks on a route.

It's where the seniors take the freshmen and teach them the 
difference between just being BIGGER and STRONGER than 
everyone, like they were used to in high 
here is the TECHNIQUE for going against players that are 
BIGGER and STRONGER then you've ever seen before!

It's about DB's getting time to perfect their abilities against 
elite talent...and skill.

It's where running backs show the QB that they can 
do more than just run between the tackles and 
build trust. 

It's a chance for the O-Line to come together through repetition
and understanding without the worry of being monitored! 

Spring ball is about learning where to be and when...What's your 
responsibility on each play and grasping your role!

7 on 7s?...that's where the UNDERGROUND magic happens!

In my opinion there is more team chemistry formed in these 
practices than any other time of the year!

"Seniors...I'm not gonna just give you the team. You're not 
ready yet...I'll give it to you, when you've earned it!"

This is the time where the leaders emerge...there are no "official" 
captains yet...but the LEADERS lead
and CAPTAINS are born!

So during the summer while your "wishing away" the 
days till that first kick off..the team is growing and 
perfecting and training and lifting!

Becoming...what they hope to show the coaches 
come possible!

I'll be posting updates on these critical practices 
as I hear from people within the program.
So...what's happing now?


This class is already off and running and EXTREMELY 
talented and exciting!

We have our RECRUITER now with Hood!

He's been ATTACKING recruits on Twitter and establishing
himself as the leader of this class!

My test of any recruit...who did we beat out to land him!

Elijah HoodATH5-11/221EVERYONE!
Quenton NelsonOL6-5/301EVERYONE!
Sam MustipherOL6-3/286EVERYONE!
Justin BrentWR6-3/193Committed
early and shut

Jimmy ByrneOL6-4/275
Jay HayesDT6-5/270
Andrew TrumbettiDE6-5/249
Nic WeisharTE6-5/215
Greer MartiniLB6-3/230RKG

We are firing on all cylinders right now and winning 
the battles taking talent from across the country!

My top 2 right now?...HOOD & HAYES!

Hayes is the type of player that ND needs to recruit 
EVERY season!...he's fast, big and has no ceiling!

Having Issac,Vanderdoes and Hayes gives us the 
ability to remain dominant on the D line for 
seasons to come!

He understands his place within a scheme and doesn't 
overplay to try and make an impact!

Remember the 2011 USC game...there was a D lineman
in that game that OVERPLAYED and cost us a ton 
of points...because he didn't know his place within the scheme!

Jay has tons of personality and reminds me of 
Big Louis Nix!
And knows how to keep the fans attention!


Where do I start with this kid?

He's a man among boys and has unreal speed for 
a kid his size!

He refuses to go down and punishes anyone in the 
open field that thinks they can arm tackle him 
to the upper body!

His conditioning is second to none and he has the 
ability to make an instant impact in the 

ND is SO LOADED at Running Back that 
teams will have no idea how to cope with 
the amount of non stop fresh legs that
can come off the bench at anytime!


We've struggled to get "A" elite running back
in the we have several!

Updates?....Stay tuned!

Inside Info?...It's dead!


So pick your favorite...light up a stogie and enjoy the summer...
The IRISH train is rolling and I feel sorry for
whoever gets in our way!...
