          At least we can truely believe we have a shot to pull a player from Flordia's mits. The Davieham era would just have written him off immediately.

              I think Riggs is an absolute possibility. Lamarcus Joyner will be the much harder pull in my opinion, but it seems that Weis has established a pipeline to St. Thomas Aquinas which can do nothing but pay dividends considering it is a national powerhouse.

                  Well, the guys that run a Florida State website (tomahawknation.com) say we are FSU's main competition, with ND actually being in the lead...

                            Looks like you have a little ammo to shoot back his way right now. Probably tough to be a FSU fan these days. Just glad my home state UK Wildcats beat em in that bowl game, even though we would have been given that win this week anyway.

                                I know, and I want to make fun of FSU, but then say that ND has not done that much lately either. The best part of knowing the guy is that I get to hangout with the FSU cowgirls :)

                                  Umm, that might be worth biting your tongue when it comes to FSU. Call a guy disloyal if you will, but a wise man knows when to pick his battles.

                                    Here's a video on him from Rivals. He talks about coming to ND for the spring game, and how he camped here last summer. Also said we were the first to offer him, and that's one of the big reasons he's coming out for the game. It's nice to be mentioned, but he also talks about FSU and other schools. We're in the mix, but he's going to be a tough pull IMO.

                                      Had a fantastic visit and has ND as his early leader. But he's going to Ohio St's spring game this weekend, and is also high on FL and Wake Forest, among others. Won't commit until fall at earliest...

                                        Very good news with him:

                                        1) He wasn't even ranked in the initial Rivals 250, and now in the latest Rivals 100, he's all the way up to being ranked #43. Kid's a stud all of a sudden (LOL).

                                        2) Rivals still has him as saying that ND is his leader right now, even after his other unofficials. He also says he plans on taking all of his officials before making his decision.

                                        3) Has ND as 'High" on his list, while every other school is at 'Medium". Doesn't mean he's ours by any means, but it is still nice to be the leader at this point. If we win ball games, we'll be that much closer to getting him...

                                          Yeah I saw his sudden rise on the Rivals list. Come on Cody, keep that pipeline going!

                                            This might be only the second time i have seen a Notre Dame lean or commit rise in Rivals rankings.

                                              Dude, he's going to ND! Mike from flavarsity.com guaranteed me this. He almost committed at the spring game, but decided to take other visits.

                                                  Even though I am confident that we will get Riggs, you still never know. It would have been better if he committed at the spring game, like he was expected to. I also think ND has a great shot at getting his fellow STAQ teammate Linder. Unfortunately Joyner looks out of our reach :(

                                                              According to Rivals, Riggs doesnt plan on commiting until after next season once he makes all of his official visits. Sorry to dissapoint anyone who thought he might be that next commit we have been hearing about

                                                                  ... Cody Riggs reportedly wants to commit to Notre Dame, but longtime Aquinas coach George Smith isn't big on his players making such early decisions and wants his players to see numerous schools before deciding.


                                                                  I recall a similar comment about the Aquinas coach during Young's (1/19/06 verbal) or Wenger's (12/7/06) recruitment. I also believe Turk commented on his coach's commitment preference but he declared early (6/11/08) anyway.

                                                                  Comment

                                                                    Comment

                                                                              Good philosophy but the coach's view may not be purely altruistic. I don't think he's big on his players making visits in season as he feels they're disruptive to HIS season. He wants his players time devoted to his team not gallivanting cross-country. Also understandable.

                                                                              I believe Wenger committed at or just after ND's Banquet. Young was a January visit I think.

                                                                                  But don't lose faith, we're still good here, and he will take his official with us, and he still loves ND. But now it's a 2 horse race with ND and FL. He always said he was going to wait until he took all 5 officials to make a decision, and that remains the same...

I don't how much Gene knows though, because Riggs has shown little interest in FSU. If I'm lucky Michael Langston (flavarsity.com) will be there, but I'm not gonna hold my breath on that.

Lauderdale, Fla., was clear on where he ranked the Irish. He called Notre Dame his leader. That was before the four-star prospect picked up offers from Georgia and Florida. Now the Irish may be back where they started.
