            Is Elston petty enough to have that be a LSU jab? 100% no but funny to imagine

                                This MF'er blocked me on Twitter. I hate that I still listen to his Pod but I can't resist. He just had Malik on who made some jabs at BK. How the eff does BD have his own crew, much less credentials to ND?

                                I very shortly considered throwing a fit with SI. Then I realized BD is as much a money driver as I am. When he meets my level, they'll can his ass. He's garbage and Vince D isn't any better.
                                I used to be D-BOE34 but I can't login for some reason. Will someone donate some vBucks?

                                • I've basically steer clear of podcasts that have Malik on it. He's still extremely bitter.

                                  • I actually heard drsikell ask a question in a presser this year. I was completely stunned. Haven’t heard him since and I don’t expect him too.

                                    The only thing I’ll ever read of his are game/practice evaluations. I read his practice evaluation of Book for the senior bowl. Pretty informative. But I won’t read his opinion pieces.
                                    Love Thee Notre Dame!

                                      Too funny, and ironically he did show up to this one and asked a dumb question... and Rees looked super annoyed.

                                        Was Tommy annoyed or confused, because he had no idea who BD is.

                                          I can't find his question anywhere. Anyone know what he asked? Bonus points for video link.

                                            He asked him a very long question about QB recruiting and evaluating using film vs in person seeing someone throw. And then basically how did COVID restrictions affect recruiting this year. Tommy just had a stank face on while it was being asked and then called him “coach” before answering. Also, he has bleached hair now which looks terrible.

                                              Yea, the side eye at the beginning of the question was golden.

                                              And I can't believe Tommy bleached his hair for his vacation.... Interesting look to say the least.

                                                      There's a reason he can't/isn't allowed to contribute to any site that requires a subscription. I can't imagine that he's making ends at Fan Nation.

Ragging Kelly's recruiting efforts, ragging Kelly not taking questions at the signing day presser, ragging the things Polian and Elston were saying about no recruiting superstars amongst the coaches, ragging Kelly saying a few years ago that ND could be top 5 recruiting then not doing anything to get there and on and on.

                                                                                                    I almost f'in choked when Fortuna said that the stuff Polian was saying in the presser sounded like he was reading a powerpoint about his recent book on coaching because it was full of a lot of platitudes w/o a lot of substance.

                                                                                                    I mean, some of their criticism is true. But, it's also true that Fortuna has a serious hardon for Kelly and Sampson is starting to act like he does, too.

                                                                                                      I used to really like Sampson, but his attitude and writing have changed a bit. I definitely see why you say that.
