  • Saw it at Rivals and couldnt believe it. Its amazing NDcan get a commit without a coach.

    Comment


    • Yes! this is sweet

      Comment


      • I may be way off, but it's just something for everyone to think about.

        Nix may be coming to ND because he knows Urban Meyer will be our next coach. UF was recruiting Nix and he was there for the game last weekend. Why does this matter you may ask? There is always the possibility Urban talked to him and told him he will become the next coach at Notre Dame. This would explain the timing of the commitment, right after his visit to UF. Any thoughts?

            You may be right, but why would he wait until now to announce? I just still find the timing weird...

              • Awesome. Nix u da man. U committed to a univeristy and not a coach.

                Comment


                • Maybe he has been waiting on admissions to clear him?

                  Maybe the coach to be would only come to ND if we would give him 3 or so players that wouldn't qualify otherwise. So to prove we are serious admissions go through.

                  In the next couple of days the new coach will be announced.

                  • so awesome, very excited, we needed some good news today.
                    I heard it from a reliable source.

                    Comment


                    • Per ESPN afflieate ISD:
                      Under Armour A DTLouis Nix decommitted from Miami-FL Tuesday and switched to ND after Nix received a visit from Irish assistant coach Tony Alford.

                      "He told me about the situation with the coaches, and he said if he wasn't going to be there, he thought I should still go there, and that Notre Dame was the best school for me. For someone to tell me that, who possibly wouldn't be coaching me, that's something worth listening to. No more visits, no more nothing. I'm 100-percent."

                      Offers include MIA, UF, FSU, UM CLEM, S.C., ILL, BC, MISS.

                        • Awesome pick up. I will say that the 'Weis' staff has truly impressed me with the honor towards ND. Not to say I would have expected anything else but this is a particularly stand up coaching staff IMO.

                          • YES.

                            This will make up for that traitor Chris Martin.

                            • Florida cranks out athletic D-linemen and I am so happy to hear Mr. Nix has joined the family. This also proves what kind of recruiter Alford is.

                                there is really no need to bash Martin, he loved Weis as did his parents and that was the biggest reason he committed. As long as he aint a Trojan i will still root for him. His decommit is different that Hunters or Trattou's, Its hard to go to a school during a coaching change.

                                    Martin told the USC Scout reporters a month ago he was decommitting from ND, regardless of whether we fired CW or not, but he asked them to keep it on the down low, and they kept his wishes. These were their words that they posted online.

                                    But hey, this is Nix's thread, so let's celebrate his decision to come to the great university, and we'll take this discussion over to Martin's thread (I'll post what I just wrote over there as well). And since Nix decommitted from Miami, it's kinda hypocritical to bash Martin for decommitting when we are celebrating Nix...

                                    • Just saw a video on espn recruiting where the guy being interviewed actually said nix was a better prospect than martin, obviously they both play positions of need, but any thoughts on nix being a better prospect than martin?

                                      also compared to vince wilfork on rivals although everyone probably knew that

                                          • ND is a great school. He knows he didnt commit to a coaching staff, but a school. And for a top notch education and university you cannot beat ND ever.

                                            That being said, Welcome to the ND family Louis! Glad to have you on board!

                                            • Saw this info last night and it was quite impressive news. I hope Mr Nix has articles written about him in the future that he signed before we even had a coach and became an All American. How can you not ask coach Alford to return after this. Nice-very nice. Plus his backs did a good job this year. Way to go Tony Alford.
                                              Project ahead when you think of what university you want to bring your family to as an alum. If it isnt Notre Dame then you should go to another school-from a subway alumni

                                              • Per an article in ISD, he said he will receive an in home visit with BK in January and that BK and he have spoken recently about how he will fit into BK's plans at ND. He noted that BK's comments to him were great whether you were an uncommitted or committed player and that BK sounded like a great guy.

                                                    Yeah, he probably woke up in a cold sweat one night and thought "what the hell was I thinking when I committed to thugmanship?!?"

                                                    • Per ESPN players to watch article:

                                                      "Who is the biggest "upside" guy?



                                                      Louis Nix might be that guy. He is a defensive tackle going to Notre Dame. He's one of those guys who will always have to be very conscious of his weight, but in terms of overall athletic prowess and the tools to be a dominant player at the next level, he's got the goods. He's explosive. He's big. He can anchor. He's going to garner double-teams, which is obviously gonna keep people off linebackers, and that's been Notre Dame's biggest issue. They just didn't have those difference-makers up front. He could be that."

                                                                              Terrific tandem
                                                                              11:31 a.m. ET -- Louis Nix and Todd Chandler have been playing well as a tandem inside and continue to give the interior of the offensive line fits.

Can't believe the kid went from saying ND was his dream school growing up, even rooting against his own brother when SDSU played at ND, to dropping ND after his visit. Damn. In interviews, he actually seems like a great kid, but I digress. He did get beat on a TD late )

I'm tired of the 3-4 this year then the 4-3 next year and ya know what......Lets use the 3-4 again after that. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOO! Pick a fucking defense and LEARN the goddamn thing. Thats all I got to say bout thaaat.
                                                                                  hahahaha....you know ND has a coaching carousel...new defensive and offensive schemes o' plenty at ND. 3-4, 4-3, how about a 52-stack defense?

                                                                                  ND goes thru numerous philosophy changes during their 3-5 year coaching cycles. Therefore, continuity is not a component in any of them.
