    Man, wish there was more of that for folks to see and appreciate. Nice example of being a great human being and caring for your fellow man.

    He's just stopping in Tallahassee for a cup of coffee. He had the Denny's Grand slam while in South Bend.

    Live look at Greyhammer when I saw Gibbons referred to as an "FSU lineman" in all the ESPN puff pieces:

    the truest of Notre Dame men. I hope he locks down a starting spot for the Seminoles and has a great year (minus 1 game) and I hope he's involved with ND football in some capacity moving forward.

    I mean its not like the way our OL plays isnt well known by now. There should be some wrinkles but our OL plays the same as it has for several years now. How does their OL react to our D will be the main question.

    This type of stuff is overblown, but let's take a little deeper look. How many different plays are ran from the same formation? Plus, he'll be on the sidelines when we're on O, so he's probably sitting on the bench taking a breather and listening to his line coach. However, if he is standing on the sideline he's got to figure out what the play is and somehow communicate that to the D in the matter of a few seconds. Last but not least, our playbook is going to be somewhat different from last year and a lot of that probably hasn't been put in just yet.

    "it's not about the X's and O's but the jimmy's and the Joe's"

    I sure hope the difference between us and FSU isn't some playbook knowledge

Seems like one of the main reasons for blocking a transfer in the past was to prevent playing the new team the next year with the transferred players maybe most value added being knowledge of his former team. I was all smiles and well wishes when it was assumed to be UCF or USF now this feels icky.
    ND hired a coach from a team on our schedule this year so it's hard for me to feel bad about this.

    Time for Rees and Freeman to earn their paychecks. As much as we hate to see him going to our day one opponent, if our coordinators are worth half the hype they receive, they should be able to use this to their advantage as well. Sure, he may know the playbook as it stands right now, we should be more than well aware of his weaknesses and, more importantly, how to exploit them...

    I'm assuming he's an immediate starter for them, which should make us feel better.

    Not suggesting they should have but would ND had a capability to block this in anyway or no? No since a grad transfer or no period?

I know next to nothing about the OLs of UF or Miami but he would certainly start at FSU/UCF/USF. He might be the biggest profile OL transfer in the portal though so plenty of really good programs across the country could possibly an option.

    Tell the P's to suck it up for 2 more years and get to Nashville. Road games are closer besides UK/MO

    I know nothing about Florida? Could he crack that line up?

    St Pete's ain't too far from USF, so that could be an option too. He's not going anywhere to sit.

    Not surprised but very disappointed. Definitely wanted him as a super backup on the interior and hopefully the #2 C. Good luck to Dillan though

    Not a bad life.

    Bachelors from Mendoza and an MBA from Vandy... right?

    Two years to play there and if he can make a buck professionally afterwards, bonus.

    Best of luck to him.

    Wow. The “6th man” type OG and 2C role must have started to become very clear. I am surprised but can’t blame. Quality OL don’t transfer often but someone out there certainly has a big hole that Gibbons can instantly improve.

    So 2 OG spots coming from Spindler, Kristofic and Lugg/Patterson seems pretty clear

    Kelly mentioned him at LG so must be an error on UND.com

    I noticed the same thing this morning when comparing the roster from und.com to a spreadsheet I keep. I didn't see find anything on a quick search, but I'd guess this will be addressed in Kelly's time with the media today.

    You're talking me into RG. Or maybe even Center. Wasn't they chat at some point about him being a C candidate?

    Haven't see Hainsey's name at all on the boards. Kramer very late if at all. I could see them both returning. Kramer's had some bad moments early this year, has been playing better, but think another year would absolutely help his stock.



    Just in general, I've only seen JOK in the first two rounds, Liam in the first four, and Kramer and Hayes very late rounds.

    I was talking about Bockhorst who Clemson lists at 6-4/315.

    ND lists Gibbons at 6-4/309

    I used to go round and round with IrishTP about Matt Bockhorst from Cincy St X regarding him being an ND level recruit, TP said he was too small. Well, Bockhorst is Clemson's starting LG this season. I don't mind missing on Cincinnati Catholic (or any ND Dream School) kids as much when the guy that got their spot performs at ND. So Gibbons starts a year, all is forgiven.

    I'm just a guy but I think that it might be better for both Hainsey and Kraemer's NFL stock if they stayed and flipped positions for 2021.

    Hainsey coming back makes the more sense now. He's not an NFL tackle obviously but all things totaled, he's a very good ND offensive lineman, teammate & captain. Then again, there are younger, capable guys right behind him or elsewhere on the OL right now ready to slide into RT.

    This is exactly why Joe Beiden will be raising Quinn's taxes. He gets paid the big bucks to perform these mental gymnastics.
