There was another thread about Nix supposedly flipping. There has been talk on the 4HL about how alot of fans are harrassing Nix on his Facebook page about it (nice to see no one learned fromthe Chris Martin situation), anyway regardless of where he ends up stop harrassing teenagers on Facebook people. Its fuckin creepy.

There needs to be an age difference on Facebook. Outside of 5 years you can't be a friend with someone until you are over 21. Cut down on the creepers.

I liked seeing he dropped 5 pounds down to 315. I'd like to see him drop some more as Longo resculpts his body.

In the Rivals film room they talked about his weight and said he isnt sloppy, carries it well. could just be he's a big boy. Ther have been some questions about his work ethic however so hopefully longo can turn him into a rock for us

I didn't imply that he was "sloppy" that was your reference.

His weight is comprised of childhood and high school pounds. JHowever strenous his HS program was it was still a HS program. He's 18, the guys on the other side of the ball that he'll face will be 21- 22 years old with 4 or 5 years in a Div 1 Strength and Conditioning program.

With Kelly's hurry up, quick score offense he's likely to being spend more time on the field. He needs Div 1 Strength and Conditioning. Like I said earlier, I look forward to losing more weight as Longo rebuilds his body.

Here's the video of Nix signing along with his HS class mates. I love this guy... I don't mean this in a mean way to the other guys, but Louis walks out with his nice bright ND polo, tucked in, and his buttoned all the way up, glasses on... the kid cracks me up. He was also the most well-spoken of the 5 by far. I can't wait to see him at ND - he looks big, in a good way.

I heartened to hear that for the sake of the defense but depressed for the sake of the OLine. We got three big uglies for the OLine. I was hoping you would tell me, one of them will likely challenge for starting LT.

I hope Crist is healthy and mobile and can stay that way.

He said on ISD power hour that the surprise was from his family to him. They were giving him something or doing something special for him on Wednesday, which so happened to be NSD.....just pure coincidence.

I think James will have a chance... but Dever or Romine will have it locked down this year. Nix can come in and play tomorrow in run down situations. He's the gem because he can step up day one and see the field. I see Lombard as a guard and Tate as a bit of a project.

Mostly just about why he picked ND. A little bit about him wanting to be 305 when he gets here. He says he is 315 now. Said he was coming no matter who the coach was because he was coming for the school. Also said Florida, FSU, and Louisville tried to poach him. Big surprise there.

Is Louis reading IrishEnvy?

Two week ago I wrote:

I don't know how many recall when Big Ced Hilliard arrived on campus. In pre-season camp that year he arrived as the big DL everyone was craving. He also had to sit down in the opening practices as he couldn't handle the weight he carried. He was out of shape.

Nix will be ready from Day 1. With the bodies we have in the middle now, I was expecting him to sit out the first year. If he's got the strength and technique to play now than I hope he sees the field early as he will have earned it now.

Rivals had some stuff on him too. Talked about how he didnt like Florida because of how Urban would just bash ND and he didnt like the negativity. Also he committed afetr his visit but didnt go public until Weis caqlled him after theStanford game to let him know that he would no longer be coaching but ND is still the place for him

His page is pretty funny. Nix says he got #76 and it wasn't what he wanted. Hafis Williams and some other posters then tell him he got 67 so he says that's better. Somebody says 67 is a good number because Russell Maryland dominated as number 67 at Tha U. And Nix says who is Russell Maryland?

Hey that's ridiculous. Watch the kid's highlight films - he clearly knows how to work hard. Will he need to improve his work ethic and get better conditioned? Hell yes. Will Coach K expect a lot out of him? Of course, but he will also provide plenty of motivation, as will the leaders on the team.

Kelly knows that everyone comes from different backgrounds, and while everyone needs to be held to a higher standard, he also knows that different players have different needs. I'm sure that Louis will be given all that he needs to succeed. He will have to take responsibility, but give him a break - he is a 17-18 year old kid who just made a decision (going to ND) that took a ton of balls coming from the school and location that he comes from.

Btw, 6 350's under 65 seconds with 3 minutes in between for a guy who is 310+... definitely hard, give the guy a break. I can't stand stuff like that.

EDIT FROM NDinL.A.: The offending words from that poster have been deleted from all posts and won't be tolerated on a recruit's thread on this site. Find a different way to express your frustration with a 17 year-old kid. Thanks to those who defended him...now let's forget about the offending words and concentrate on the topic at hand. Thanks!

I was a 170 lb guy in high school and ran 350's over hurdles every monday practice w/ 5 min rest. Let me tell ya, 350's are no joke. The lactic acid build up was so painful I still remember it like it was yesterday. It's still worse than any college workout I've done. Give Nix a break, the dude is 310 lbs. He should be suffering or else he's not human. It never gets any easier, but it will toughen his mentality.

my hs team had a bunch of coaches that had coached in college and we ran them as well...pure hell!(sans hurdles) we had a kid on our team that stunk so bad of B/O all the time(even in school) and everytime i was to the point of trying not to puke he would run by me and it was all over! hahaha! then if they felt you werent sprinting hard enough they would add more on...great times, i'd do anything to do it again!

Haha yeah def good times. I didn't run them in college cuz I was a 110 high hurdles specialist, but my hs coach made us all run intermediates.

I had a hs teammate who kept conveniently missing 350 workouts for various different reasons for a couple of weeks, which made us pretty mad that we had to suffer and he didn't. The coach joked that he would get donuts and juice for the rest of the team and surprise my teammate with a 350 workout on a Friday. So friday after the work out, the coach was like "all right, time for your 350 workout. Someone go get the donuts and juice out of my car." We enjoyed donuts and juice while he ran 350's LOL. He recalled he almost puked when he caught a whiff of the donuts on the turn. Best practice ever.

Shut. up. He's updating his status on facebook, he's not making a television announcement. The MAJORITY (not you) of the people that will see that are his friends. You friended a 17 year old because he's playing football at ND, which is already creepy. If you don't want to see his updates, de-friend him.

Ok, so I dont get another infraction I wont talk about the recruit specifically.
I wasn't talking about leaving home to go to a school.I've done that,and most of you have all done that.Yes,homesickness is a normal thing, I went through it myself at college.
But that is not what I was talking about.
I was talking about someone complaining about practice.practice?.....we're talking about practice?...not a game,not a game...practice.
I believe Kelly is working harder than any other coach in the country to get these kids ready physically and mentally.Thats what those kind of workouts are for.
ND has always stood for strong-willed intelligent student-athletes.
This isn't the University of Florida where you can get away with murder and miss a practice and be ok.
I would think (and hope) that others would be worried about a recruit complaining about practice.And talking about leaving a football program over practice.Am I the only one that finds that troublesome? Or do I think too logically?

And 6 350s under a certain time with only so much rest? What the... I guess the coaches are making a statement. I hope the kid can suck it up.

EDIT

Irish4Life09, the first sentence above was a quick response to HCTI's post, but you posted before I did. I agree that complaining in public like he has done might send up a red flag, but as I said, 6 350s? Yikes.

LOL... Thanks Mr. Iverson. ;)

I didn't give you the infraction and I'm not going to speak for L.A. so that one's between you fellas.

That said, Kelly's been given the task of creating a new culture in this here town... It's been said many times that he felt the players/atmosphere were soft and he wouldn't stand for it. It's kind of the military philosophy of breaking a man down and building them up again. Usually, they come out stronger in mind/body on the other end.

Now, that said, Kelly's beating the weak out of the returning players, and unfortunately, the new class coming in is having their feet held to the fire all at the same time. This may be the first time any of these fellas have ever gone through something like this. Add in the fact that homesickness is likely setting in and it all comes off as doom and gloom. Big Man will be fine...he seems like a good character kid.

I think that's the problem with these social sites. They don't necessarily correctly depict what is actually going on. Chances are, this young man is using this as a crutch for folks (who for the most part I'm guessing have been a part of his inner circle all his life blowing sunshine up his rear end) to sympathize with him and feel his pain along with him. It's most likely a young man blowing off steam and looking for some support as he may not be fitting in just yet as this is the summer and most of the student body is gone. It's a bitch feeling like you're on an island in a brand new place and your usual support group isn't there to back you up. I think he'll be fine once things start to crank up for keeps...

Yeah, sorry wasn't really directed at you just happened to be under your post. Just a general statement in the thread.

On a different note, I'm not even sure Nix is in South Bend right now. He says he won't be in SB til the 20th. So basically he is doing all this off-season stuff alone, nervous about whether he is ready, and doesn't have the other freshman/rest of the team to lean on for support and to help him work through it. Definitely a tough thing.

somebody stalked him on facebook and he wrote something like, "ready to get off the boat and i'm not even on it," or something to that effect. a lot of people got nervous that he didn't like off season workouts, and that he didn't want to work hard or be a part of the team. I believe it was a little jump to judgment by some on IE and other Irish sites.

regardless as ND in LA said, he is on campus and tearing it up.

Damn! When did the Steak 'n Shake open? There wasn't one around when I was there '70 through '74. It would have eased what little homesickness I felt since "The Steak" was one of the "cool" places to be seen on a Friday or Saturday night when I was in high school in Orlando.

It was a car hop at the time and one was "required" to back into a parking space - important if you wanted to show off your GTO, Mustang, Chevy Super Sport, Olds 442 (with Hurst Shifter and Glass Pack mufflers), MGB or hopped up anything else. If, like me, you were driving the family Oldsmobile station wagon (not the Vista Cruiser as featured on That '70's Show, but close) it was important to show that you could deftly maneuver tons of steel.

I vividly remember laughing my ass off as my older sister and a few of her cheerleader friends roller skated around the parking lot in something of an "in-your-face-wrench-head-greasers" demonstration.

But I digress, as usual.

My advice to him and every other freshman: Hang in there. You will soon find friends and family among classmates, staff and professors. It will be worth it.

OK, ya got me. I tend to romanticize. I remember the fries I ate there in the mid and late sixties. Today they may well be soggy, poorly cooked shadows of their former clean, crispy, shoestring selves. I may also have been distracted by the sweet young thangs snuggled up to me in the front seat of the trusty Olds. The shakes were good.

I toured an early McDonald's in 1960 (or so) with my Cub Scout den. Back then there was no indoor seating, just outdoor tables and benches. The thing I remember most was a a big stainless steel barrel with water jets and sharp blades to peel fresh potatoes before slicing them to fry them as French Fries. They were oh, so tasty!

Side note: does Steak n' Shake still use the tag line "In Sight They Must Be Right?"

Just watched an interview with Louis Nix on ISD. This guy really has a great mix of personality and humility. You can tell he is hilarious. He is instantly one of my favorite players.

Between Nix, Lynch, and Tuitt, I think we have got something really special developing on this line. And what better seniors leadership could you ask for than EJ (wish he had another year), KLM, Sean and Hafis. This is going to be a fun four years.

Have fun losing and bein all cold n **** at notre dame kiddo...your blind if you think it dont get alot better then ND without a coach a QB and his best offensive weapon. You guys are gonna suck and i hope you enjoy your 6-6 7-6 5-6 seasons maybe you can make it to the league but you would have had a better shot at the U. your just a moron in my opinion at least decommit to a winner like UF or Alabama not s. I hope your crying when you see J12 and the boys in the BCS then next few years when your not even bowling. Seems to me you didnt have the balls to come and compete in the Gables and im glad your gone so we can bring in a real competitor and a kid with heart a true cane. which you are not. no swag at all. have fun losing in the cold indiana weather ahahahahh indiana what a f**kin dumba** you are i cant get over it.

Irish Chocolate is quickly becoming my favorite player on the team.

I love this team. Because of that, I have too many favorite players on it. I'm going to need to cut down. Or at least have higher standards. Lynch because he's a beast, Tuitt because he's a beast and actually surprised me by playing so well last year, Nix because of this, Te'o because he's Manti freakin' Te'o, Slaughter because of his crushing hits and perfectly timed blitzes, Eifert because I have a thing for TE's, Wood because of his cameos in ICONN videos, etc.

so nix is slamming fans for being unsure about rb next year, at the same time calling out 2 Key ppl at 2 key positions next year. Boy i sure feel much better now. NOT

To add I felt DD should have played day 1, seems kinda clear why he didnt.

the man speaks the truth? How many coaches have we had in the last 10 or so years? I know they were for the betterment of the program, but hell people like you are probably the same ones whos calling for BKs job already. Nix is speaking the truth, and whats wrong with being a leader and make sure those 2 young man stay accountable.. he sees the potential they have, and wants to get the best out of them. I dont agree with doing it over twitter, but I see no problem with being the leader and telling the younger players to get with it! If daniels wants a NC so bad, they he should understand what it takes..

He wasn't "slamming fans for being unsure about RB next year"; he was slamming the NDNation crowd, who deserves to be slammed at every possible opportunity.

at the same time calling out 2 Key ppl at 2 key positions next year.

It's called veteran leadership, and there's no substitute for it.

Boy i sure feel much better now. NOT

I feel like I'm suddenly back in middle school. Are you typing to us from the early '90s, Clark? How old are you?

To add I felt DD should have played day 1, seems kinda clear why he didnt.

So after reading a couple tweets, you feel like it's obvious that Daniels is lazy, which is ultimately why Kelly red-shirted him? Very insightful of you.

To ur last line, im not the one that feels he is Lazy i wasnt there, the "ldr" as u just called him did. So clearly thats the main reason why he redshirted

no where was NDNation mentioned so i guess you can read into comments made and make up your own judgements to the meaning but i can not.

I believe that there's a big difference between pointing out to an excuse-making teammate that he's making excuses for his lack of playing time, and "calling out" a teammate.

Nix didn't come out of the blue with something like "Davaris Daniels would be getting more playing time if he was practicing harder." Daniels basically complained about being on the bench, and Nix basically told him to practice harder. That's what I took away from the exchange, anyway. Was it kind of blunt? Yes. Would I consider it Nix "calling out" Daniels? No.

Big Lou is like 330 lbs. I definitely do not have a hard time believing he is hungry! :spam:
Just kidding but in all seriousness I love this kids attitude and drive. Not sure why BSmith would basically take a swipe at the players currently on our roster, but I think he's going to end up eating those words at some point. Whether CBK is brash and abbrassive at times or not, one thing is clear, you cannot be soft mentally or physically and expect to have success under him. This upcoming year will be the first year that basically none of the guys still carrying the Chuck Weis genepool will be littering up the roster.

After seeing the back and forth between him and Brian Smith via twitter it just reaffirms my wanting to have BK guys out on the field.

Brian Smith came across as though he looked up to the "IDGAF" players from the SEC football machines.

In actuality he could just as well have been one of those guys, but that's where Chuck's softness as a coach shines through.
