How can anybody say a bad thing about Irish Chocolate. What a great rep for Notre Dame. I am so glad he came here.

Just sad he can't play out his most likely last season.

Good Luck, and thanks for all you did for the Irish Nation.

Gonna be scary on the Dline without him, with freshman and a fragile Kona and Day.

Irish#1 11-21-2013 09:17 PM

A true ambassador of Notre Dame. Sad that he has to go out this way, but a torn meniscus can be wayyyy too painful to play on. My hats off to him for trying to give it a go.

Best Wishes IC!

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.

One of my top 5 favorite players. Sometimes we don't know about guy's work ethic because we're not around them. But it just oozes out of him. Locker room will be different without him there.

IrishSteelhead 11-21-2013 09:59 PM

Has to be so frustrating for the poor guy. Hope he has a speedy recovery, and is ready to bang some heads on Sunday at 100% next season.

ResLife Hero 11-21-2013 10:12 PM

Man that sucks. Committed when we didn't have a coach, stuck with it when he didn't get on the field and became one of my favorite players.

Whatever he decides, the young man did it all right.

Grahambo 11-21-2013 10:17 PM

He is exactly the type of guy you want standing next to you on the battlefield.

palinurus 11-21-2013 10:23 PM

Is is just crazy to think he may come back? I mean, is it basically a foregone conclusion he'll turn? Can one of your guys who know something put a % on it?

Slightly crazy.

If someone said to you in about 6 months you will be a millionaire. The one thing you have to do is not injure that more what would you do..

I'm only symptomatic every few months and only for a short period of time. Doesn't hold me out from anything. I'll survive for a while. I'm only 26, so I should be able to get another 15 years or so without getting it done.

Please come back, Lou. Please?

Tore mine in high school, had the surgery a few years later. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Definitely worth the few weeks of PT- almost good as new after.

How much does this hurt his draft stock?

Not at all.

It's only a six-eight week injury.

He'll have lots of time to rehab then train for the combine.

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.

TheTurningPoint 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.

NDohio 11-22-2013 09:31 AM

Thank you Big Lou for all you have done. Wish you well at the next level, I will always be a fan.

Keep laughing!

fitz_bu47 11-22-2013 12:24 PM

Awesome kid. Awesome story. Bummer of an ending to his playing career, but stuff happens. One of my all time faves to cheer on.

ndcoltsfan2010 11-22-2013 12:33 PM

What a fantastic player and great human being. So sad he will miss the rest of his season but am ever so grateful that we got a chance to see him mature and grow into the fine young man that he is today! He definently represented Notre Dame well!

dshans 11-22-2013 12:38 PM

I have little doubt that Lou has benefited from the easy access that contemporary media provides in our forming our respective opinions. I have no doubt that his character, ability, personality, dedication and tenacity would stand in good stead with any of Notre Dame's legendary players or coaches, regardless.

Keep smiling, Lou. Do well and do good.

enrico514 11-22-2013 07:04 PM

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.

I may be selfish but I still hoping he decides to come back with Tuit next year!!!

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.

Louis weighing ~350 lbs doesn't help his situation lol

@BGI_DanMurphy: No Louis Nix coming out of the tunnel (as far as I could see). He said last year one of the reasons he came back was for that moment.

GoldenIsThyFame 11-23-2013 04:54 PM

:(

IrishSteelhead 11-23-2013 04:57 PM

He's waiting for next year! (Dunno how to do italics on Tapatalk)

gkIrish 11-23-2013 05:07 PM

As crazy as it sounds, what other reason could he have for not doing the family thing?

Either his family didn't show up or he is coming back???

Could not be more proud to have this guy as part of this team. Only want the best for him.

He did? That's great. Wish they would have showed it on NBC (they managed to get a Collinsworth family shot in, of course. Also Rees, Jones, Martin, a few others.)

They did show it.

dad4aa 11-24-2013 01:05 PM

It was great to see him out on the field with his mom for senior day. A thought crossed my mind as I watched him crutch off the field. With him missing four of our last five games and our bowl game....is there a chance he comes back next year?

Meacon Irish 11-24-2013 01:17 PM

No, probably no.

Not when you have your ND degree you're a probable top 10 pick.

EuropeanDomer 11-26-2013 05:36 PM

Trolling ND hard since he signed the dotted line at the mother ship. Whatever.

koonja 11-26-2013 05:49 PM

Can't see the video. But the argument's pointless if he's not basing it on a projected draft pick. What's the current market for these two? Where is Mark drawing the line? Top 10 for Nix? Top 20 for Tuitt?

The video is almost a year old, but he's just saying that Tuitt and Nix are a bit overrated because Mel Kiper has an infatuation with ND. Nothing big, and I even thought it was an instance where May was being genuine.
