There was another thread about Nix supposedly flipping. There has been talk on the 4HL about how alot of fans are harrassing Nix on his Facebook page about it (nice to see no one learned fromthe Chris Martin situation), anyway regardless of where he ends up stop harrassing teenagers on Facebook people. Its fuckin creepy.

NoJusticeNoPeace 02-03-2010 02:30 AM

There needs to be an age difference on Facebook. Outside of 5 years you can't be a friend with someone until you are over 21. Cut down on the creepers.

TerryTate 02-03-2010 01:20 PM

He's ND bound. Signed LOI

IrishInFl 02-03-2010 01:22 PM

WHAT! NO WAY! I thought he was going to Miami! (sarcasm)

I liked seeing he dropped 5 pounds down to 315. I'd like to see him drop some more as Longo resculpts his body.

DirtySecret 02-03-2010 10:43 PM

Does anybody what the big surprise was?

NoJusticeNoPeace 02-03-2010 11:11 PM

He changed his name to Louis Kixass.

In the Rivals film room they talked about his weight and said he isnt sloppy, carries it well. could just be he's a big boy. Ther have been some questions about his work ethic however so hopefully longo can turn him into a rock for us

I didn't imply that he was "sloppy" that was your reference.

His weight is comprised of childhood and high school pounds. JHowever strenous his HS program was it was still a HS program. He's 18, the guys on the other side of the ball that he'll face will be 21- 22 years old with 4 or 5 years in a Div 1 Strength and Conditioning program.

With Kelly's hurry up, quick score offense he's likely to being spend more time on the field. He needs Div 1 Strength and Conditioning. Like I said earlier, I look forward to losing more weight as Longo rebuilds his body.

BearGB 02-04-2010 02:17 AM

Here's the video of Nix signing along with his HS class mates. I love this guy... I don't mean this in a mean way to the other guys, but Louis walks out with his nice bright ND polo, tucked in, and his buttoned all the way up, glasses on... the kid cracks me up. He was also the most well-spoken of the 5 by far. I can't wait to see him at ND - he looks big, in a good way.

I heartened to hear that for the sake of the defense but depressed for the sake of the OLine. We got three big uglies for the OLine. I was hoping you would tell me, one of them will likely challenge for starting LT.

I hope Crist is healthy and mobile and can stay that way.

He said on ISD power hour that the surprise was from his family to him. They were giving him something or doing something special for him on Wednesday, which so happened to be NSD.....just pure coincidence.

I think James will have a chance... but Dever or Romine will have it locked down this year. Nix can come in and play tomorrow in run down situations. He's the gem because he can step up day one and see the field. I see Lombard as a guard and Tate as a bit of a project.

Insider article. I hate ESPN. Everything about college football is Insider Stories.

gmnysdad 02-18-2010 05:23 PM

Mostly just about why he picked ND. A little bit about him wanting to be 305 when he gets here. He says he is 315 now. Said he was coming no matter who the coach was because he was coming for the school. Also said Florida, FSU, and Louisville tried to poach him. Big surprise there.

I don't know how many recall when Big Ced Hilliard arrived on campus. In pre-season camp that year he arrived as the big DL everyone was craving. He also had to sit down in the opening practices as he couldn't handle the weight he carried. He was out of shape.

Nix will be ready from Day 1. With the bodies we have in the middle now, I was expecting him to sit out the first year. If he's got the strength and technique to play now than I hope he sees the field early as he will have earned it now.

jason_h537 02-19-2010 01:27 AM

Rivals had some stuff on him too. Talked about how he didnt like Florida because of how Urban would just bash ND and he didnt like the negativity. Also he committed afetr his visit but didnt go public until Weis caqlled him after theStanford game to let him know that he would no longer be coaching but ND is still the place for him

Wow....A special kid and an ND man through and through. Love it!!! Thanks Jason

That he called Louis and told him ND was still the place for him is just another good example of the type of character guy that Charlie was, though.

...Pass Right

if you look at his page it looks like the doubt started to creep into his head on 6-9! i think alot of incoming frosh feel the same way when they start participating in their college off season workouts regardless of whether you are attending ND or some random d3 school! keep the little man out of your head louis!!!

i added this kid as a friend on FB when he announced he was joining ND, but really havnt paid attention to him.
when this starting gaining legs today, i went and looked at his page.
if you're a friend of his on their,go check it out.

NDBCSChamps 06-14-2010 05:52 PM

His page is pretty funny. Nix says he got #76 and it wasn't what he wanted. Hafis Williams and some other posters then tell him he got 67 so he says that's better. Somebody says 67 is a good number because Russell Maryland dominated as number 67 at Tha U. And Nix says who is Russell Maryland?

yea, i hear you! that said, the kid has probably never left his mom or his town for very long, and is feeling a little more pressure than he has ever had to deal with on top of the new workouts.

Hey that's ridiculous. Watch the kid's highlight films - he clearly knows how to work hard. Will he need to improve his work ethic and get better conditioned? Hell yes. Will Coach K expect a lot out of him? Of course, but he will also provide plenty of motivation, as will the leaders on the team.

Kelly knows that everyone comes from different backgrounds, and while everyone needs to be held to a higher standard, he also knows that different players have different needs. I'm sure that Louis will be given all that he needs to succeed. He will have to take responsibility, but give him a break - he is a 17-18 year old kid who just made a decision (going to ND) that took a ton of balls coming from the school and location that he comes from.

Btw, 6 350's under 65 seconds with 3 minutes in between for a guy who is 310+... definitely hard, give the guy a break. I can't stand stuff like that.

EDIT FROM NDinL.A.: The offending words from that poster have been deleted from all posts and won't be tolerated on a recruit's thread on this site. Find a different way to express your frustration with a 17 year-old kid. Thanks to those who defended him...now let's forget about the offending words and concentrate on the topic at hand. Thanks!

350's
 
I was a 170 lb guy in high school and ran 350's over hurdles every monday practice w/ 5 min rest. Let me tell ya, 350's are no joke. The lactic acid build up was so painful I still remember it like it was yesterday. It's still worse than any college workout I've done. Give Nix a break, the dude is 310 lbs. He should be suffering or else he's not human. It never gets any easier, but it will toughen his mentality.

my hs team had a bunch of coaches that had coached in college and we ran them as well...pure hell!(sans hurdles) we had a kid on our team that stunk so bad of B/O all the time(even in school) and everytime i was to the point of trying not to puke he would run by me and it was all over! hahaha! then if they felt you werent sprinting hard enough they would add more on...great times, i'd do anything to do it again!

Haha yeah def good times. I didn't run them in college cuz I was a 110 high hurdles specialist, but my hs coach made us all run intermediates.

I had a hs teammate who kept conveniently missing 350 workouts for various different reasons for a couple of weeks, which made us pretty mad that we had to suffer and he didn't. The coach joked that he would get donuts and juice for the rest of the team and surprise my teammate with a 350 workout on a Friday. So friday after the work out, the coach was like "all right, time for your 350 workout. Someone go get the donuts and juice out of my car." We enjoyed donuts and juice while he ran 350's LOL. He recalled he almost puked when he caught a whiff of the donuts on the turn. Best practice ever.

Shut. up. He's updating his status on facebook, he's not making a television announcement. The MAJORITY (not you) of the people that will see that are his friends. You friended a 17 year old because he's playing football at ND, which is already creepy. If you don't want to see his updates, de-friend him. Unfortunately I didn't see your original quote so I can't be too mean to you

yes, i understand the workouts are difficult.but to whine about them on a public site, and to complain about a coach and whether he should stay based on workouts is stupid as hell.
this kid needs to change his attitude immediately.hopefully kelly will change it for him, because ND doesnt stand for that kind of crap.if he wants to act like that go play for urban liar.

IDK....Kind of sounds like our fan base bitching and moaning about potentially having to join a conference. Things aren't to their liking so they're going to bitch and moan and eventually take their ball and go home.

NDBCSChamps 06-14-2010 08:30 PM

Ok well if you read more then just the status update, he says he is worried, scared, nervous etc. about 6 times. Gee, leaving home for the first time, going to a new environment, and being a small fish in a big pond might have me feeling all those things if I was 17-18 too. Cut the kid some slack.

Keep in mind, my comment was directed at the posters on this board...not the kid. It's a bitch leaving home for the first time. It's not for everyone.

Ok, so I dont get another infraction I wont talk about the recruit specifically.
I wasn't talking about leaving home to go to a school.I've done that,and most of you have all done that.Yes,homesickness is a normal thing, I went through it myself at college.
But that is not what I was talking about.
I was talking about someone complaining about practice.practice?.....we're talking about practice?...not a game,not a game...practice.
I believe Kelly is working harder than any other coach in the country to get these kids ready physically and mentally.Thats what those kind of workouts are for.
ND has always stood for strong-willed intelligent student-athletes.
This isn't the University of Florida where you can get away with murder and miss a practice and be ok.
I would think (and hope) that others would be worried about a recruit complaining about practice.And talking about leaving a football program over practice.Am I the only one that finds that troublesome? Or do I think too logically?

NeuteredDoomer 06-14-2010 08:46 PM

And 6 350s under a certain time with only so much rest? What the... I guess the coaches are making a statement. I hope the kid can suck it up.

EDIT

Irish4Life09, the first sentence above was a quick response to HCTI's post, but you posted before I did. I agree that complaining in public like he has done might send up a red flag, but as I said, 6 350s? Yikes.

(Does this post make any sense anymore?)
