Lord hope he doesn't go to that dumpster fire.

Lord hope he doesn't go to that dumpster fire.

Say what now? What makes the eagles more of a dumpster fire than anyone else in the NFC East, or any of the crappy teams that would pick Nix?

We simply are low on talent, especially at QB. The organization is actually well run compared to Cleveland, Jacksonville, Redskins, Cowboys, and many other programs.

I'd welcome Lou with open arms and a fistfull of cash.

It'll never happen, because we need a QB, but still.

Eagles will draft a QB. Period. Likely Mariotta with how Bridgewater seems a lock for Jacksonville.

Mariotta will go before Bridgewater, first overall. I'm thinking Tahj Boyd is more likely considering where we are, and the fact that there are so many bad teams this year tanking for QBs.

You really think Mariotta goes before Bridgewater? Interesting. Got to say I could personally see it, but most experts I've seen have Bridgewater listed ahead of Mariotta right now.

The Eagles currently sit at the 10th slot, and are likely (IMO) to move up a little with Vick being out and their offense falling apart.

Tampa, Jacksonville, Minnesota all seem like locks to pick a QB... so Mariotta wouldn't get past them most likely. Giants, Redskins, Steelers won't look for a QB. Then you have Houston (yes), Atlanta (no), STL (yes?), and then Philly. So Philly would get the 6th QB unless they can trade up with someone like the Giants or Redskins or Steelers.

For Chip Kelly, I'd guess he'd look at:
1. Mariotta
2. Bridgewater
3. Manziel
4. Boyd
5. Miller
6. ...

So it'll be interesting to see if they'll have the opportunity to draft the legit dual-threat QB they want. It'll also be interesting to see if anyone stays an extra year in college and forgoes the draft.

I'm not so sure the Steelers aren't looking for a QB. Ben is getting long in the tooth. He has endured some beatings. I guess they won't look to take one with their first round pick, which is exactly your point, but I wouldn't be shocked to see them take a flyer on one in the 3rd round if they see some value.

As far as Manziel goes, I wouldn't touch him w a 10' pole.

Now, back to Louis.... I decided that my first ever ND game in South Bend would be this year's Senior Day, so I could see Louis meet his mom at midfield. God I can't wait to see that.

Easy there killer, id take our situation and direction over yours 10 out of 10 times.

We have a top 10 defense, a solid O-line, a stud WR, and a stud TE. All we need is a good young QB (easier said than done) and we are good to go in a declining division.

Nix has a small meniscus tear in his knee that usually requires surgery at the end of the season. Is having an MRI to see if it's medically safe to play on. Being evaluated this afternoon and will likely find out his status on Tuesday, this according to BGI.

To be clear, the meniscus tear is less of an issue than the tendinitis

You've also had 7 head coaches in the last 14 years. On the field, the Browns are probably better off. As an organization? Take Philly and give the points.

Hope he goes to the NFL. He's a sure-fire first round pick, and will get a nice contract and hefty signing bonus (I'd say maybe a $6M-$7M bonus, assuming he goes around #8-12) because of it. I'm sure his Mom and large family could use it. He's paid his dues here. Can't wait to see him succeed at the next level.

the selfish irish fan (me included) would love for him to stay with tuitt and give it another run with a good team. with their experience and talent on the line it would allow the young LB's to grow into their spots. however, i agree that they should enter the draft if graded out in the first round.

Saw that Nix hasn't officially stated whether he is heading to NFL or not. I know there is a .01% chance of him returning but I have a general question regarding a possible return to ND. Has anyone heard of ND guaranteeing a job with the university after graduating or after their time in the NFL is over? I'm sure it's not compliant but do you think ND would ever do something like this? Lou would be a great ambassador for ND and I wouldn't be disappointed in the university if they use a job offer to get him to come back for his fifth year.

Terrible news. Like everybody who cheers for the Irish, I love Lou. I think it would be a huge mistake for him to return and risk serious injury. The surgery and the time off will do him a world of good heading into his first year in the NFL.

Of course I would go wild if he did decide to return, but the risk is not worth it. Too bad that one of the truly great ambassadors for Notre Dame won't go out banging heads.

So sorry to hear this. He is such a good guy.

Man, seals the deal for him and Tuitt for next year. After the Jonas injury, the Kap Injury, and now Nix. So, at least in my opinion it seals the deal.

Even on a worse note, this really sets us up for Stanford running the ball right up the gut on us. With Kona not 100% and Day--not being a true NT, Tony out. We are in trouble against the run without Nix. Now, BYU even looks harder then it was?

Sucks for everybody involved. Good luck Louis.

He came in way overweight and ineffective. He could've quit and run back to Florida at any time. Instead? He worked his tail off to get in shape and battled hard every day at one of the toughest/least glorious positions on the field. I'll always have a soft spot for the big Irish Chocolate.

I would imagine it depends on the magnitude of the injury and subsequent procedure. Was it just a shaving (likely) of the meniscus or complete removal (unlikely). The former would not affect at all, but the latter could be an issue.

IrishTP
11-22-2013, 09:26 AM
Nah, it wont his draft stock. Meniscus isnt an acl/pcl/etc. Most people never elect to have the surgery the nature of his career field he needed it. His workload, with a torn meniscus/tendonitis, and will only enhance that draft stock in my opinion. Teams see he got double the snaps he did last year, while playing hurt and having a more effective year....thats money in the bank.

But, Lou is what ND is all about. A kid that isnt your typical ND kid..has his ups and down...but in the end took his future in his own hands and matured into a great ambassador for the university.

Getting your knee scoped for a meniscus is a joke in terms of rehab. I think the tendonitis could potentially be a bigger issue as it's not an easy thing to get rid of.

If enough is removed, rehab can prove VERY difficult. Standing for too long can be come extremely painful, let alone 40-50 snaps of FBS football. We're talking about bone on bone pain potentially.

Everyone is different but Louis as an athlete should recover relatively well. I'm a weekend warrior that has had both knees scoped (trimmed in one and removed in the other) and I was walking the next day and squatting 4-6 weeks (can't remember exactly) with no issue whatsoever. Years later effects (arthritis) are being felt in the knee that had the meniscus removed and that is the main reason why many docs suggest most people forego the surgery and try to live with the little annoyance of a damaged meniscus. Tendonitis on the other hand can be an annoying, frustrating bitch of an issue to resolve.

Any team that plays a 3-4 that has a QB, left tackle, and lacking a NT would be foolish to pass on Nix. I really believe he is the next Vince Wilfork and a player teams will have to gameplan around.

Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame

Nix has battled some injuries, the worst being the season-ending knee injury that required surgery last month. While there are some doubts as to whether he will come out (he is expected to graduate this month but has a season of eligibility remaining), he certainly fits the Giants mold. Tough, smart, and active up front. Can rush the quarterback and also stuff the run in the middle.

Meh not so much since we got Beason. We need help outside but I don't like drafting linebackers in the first round anyway. Giants have had a lot of success taking the BPA (Best Player Available) in the 1st round so if Nix is there ~15 they better damn well take him.

Please, please, please let him go to the Giants. Take Stephon Tuitt, too, while you're at it so we can have an all ND defensive line.(kidding bout the Tuitt part)

Fox Sports has him going 15th to the Giants, fwiw.

15. New York Giants

Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame

Nix has battled some injuries, the worst being the season-ending knee injury that required surgery last month. While there are some doubts as to whether he will come out (he is expected to graduate this month but has a season of eligibility remaining), he certainly fits the Giants mold. Tough, smart, and active up front. Can rush the quarterback and also stuff the run in the middle.

I see what you mean... however.... Even though I'm not sure if it's true, the signing bonus comment made me look at it differently. It's Christmas time and Nix has a big family.

I think Lou represented himself well throughout his time at ND. I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and not perceive it as malicious, cutthroat, etc....

Agents usually want to appear to be above board. Coaches may not like that kind of signing without involvement. So if Kelly didn't, as ND may have some draftworthy players coming up, what do you think Kelly will have to say about that agent company?

I can't help but feel a little disappointed with the decision to sign with an agent before the bowl game...I understand how great of an ambassador big Lou has been for the ND program, but even if the decision to go pro had been made (which I agree with wholeheartedly), he should have waited to sign with an agent so that he could partake in the bowl activities with his brothers, those same brothers who were probably there for him when he was homesick and thinking of leaving...The decision to go pro isn't selfish of him, but to sign with an agent, injured or not, prior to the completion of the season is one imo...Best of luck to big Lou in the NFL, he's going to be a great locker room guy for sure wherever he lands

Emcee77
12-09-2013, 02:49 PM
Based on Kelly's comments yesterday, it sounds like Lou didn't know that he wouldn't be able to participate in bowl game festivities if he signed with an agent prior to the game. I think he thought that if he wasn't playing it wouldn't matter if he signed with an agent or not. In fact, Kelly was the one who had to tell him all that.

then there was an epic failure in communications between the two parties because that just isn't a smart assumption to make...The moment you declare and sign with an agent, you're done with all NCAA sports related activities...

Grantland's Athletes of the Year - The Triangle Blog - Grantland (http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-triangle/post/_/id/86508/grantlands-athletes-of-the-year)

Holly Anderson: College football's seasons are short, its good-byes frequent. Players violently shoulder their way into our hearts, stay a little while, and move on, and our window of time in which to enjoy them can be narrowed significantly by any number of factors: grades, injuries, the Ever-Popular-And-Mysterious Violation Of Team Rules, or NFL-ready skill sets that peak early. All of this makes it maybe ill-advised to get too attached, but every year new personalities determined to make us love them anyway permeate our cynicism. And when it came time to decide which of this year's crop of departing players we'd miss the most, we came up with a little list topped by one very large gentleman.

We thought we might have seen the last of ebullient Notre Dame nose tackle Louis Nix III right around this time last year, and he wouldn't have been wrong to go. He was a high-profile player on a team headed to the title game, and harbored aspirations of using an NFL paycheck to give his mother a comfortable life. That same mother sent Nix right back to school, where his 2013 season was truncated by a torn meniscus, and if we wouldn't have begrudged him an early entry to the pros last year, we're openly cheering him forgoing his final season of eligibility now. Life goes quick (unlike a box of Irish chocolate); careers go quicker, and Nix is projected to go in the first round. Get paid, kiddo, and commence pampering your mom. We'll watch vigilantly for the return of Chocolate News, and will never, ever forget the time you sang a country love anthem to Kashi cereal.

Anybody else a little bitter with how he ended his career at ND? I think he should've waited to sign agent so he could've been part of the team and went to the bowl game with the team.

He was injured (wouldn't have been available) and his family has needed money. He did what was best for his family IMO

No, not bitter. Was his loss that he couldn't attend the bowl game, not ours.

Ironman8 is correct. He needed to get healthy, as he had been struggling with his knee since the Alabama game. Signing with the agent gave him the best chance to get himself ready for the combine. I'm sure he would have loved to have been with the team. Not sure how anyone can be bitter with a guy like Lou.

Totally understandable with these explanations. I wasn't aware.

Lou will be repping ND the rest of his days with Mike Golic on the radio fervor. I wouldn't feel bitter at all, he's gonna be a great ambassador for the University.

Does seem like knee rehab would be on ND's dime though. With the way insurances work.

You would think.

My future bro-in-law was a cheerleader at Kansas and tore his ACL drunkenly stunting at a party. KU picked up the surgery and rehab bill entirely.

He did it so he could get surgery from the best sports med people there are and not the ones ND employs (who are good, but not the best).
