Still, this muddles how a Stanley or McGlinchey level OT would obviously be tabbed a starter on this team without a second thought. There is no question that an OT with Top 10 pick talent would beat out any of the currently rostered players... that is flat out axiomatic. So the competition angle makes no sense whatsoever.

But all of this is sort of besides the point, which is that being a "tout" about how a kid who has proven nothing is a certain top 10 pick is pretty crazy. How about this? I'll bet you any amount of money you want that he is not a top 10 pick in the 2022 NFL draft and I'll give you 5-to-1 odds. Let me know what level you're comfortable betting at. I'll take any action from $1 to 5 beers at the next ND game to whatever you are willing to put in escrow for two years.
I don't know why you are introducing Stanley or McG to this or that they would start on this team??? Would either start as a true freshman? What I said about ND and Walter Rouse is that he wouldn't start for this team this year, nor would any other OT from the 2019 class for that matter. Are you saying that any kid who ends up a Top 10 pick at OT would've come into ND as a summer enrollee and beat out Eich & Hainsey this year? I don't think we are on the same wavelength here.

And if I'm a "tout", you're a chince. 5:1 odds on a Top 10 scenario call in 3 years??? Gee thanks Beav!

How about 25:1 he goes first 3 rounds when he comes out barring injury of course. That's still not good enough odds for a lowly 3*/#37 OT but maybe I'm seeing something that isn't there.

But either way, I'm not opening an escrow account.

Because they are, obviously, recent examples of what Top 10 draft pick tackle play looks like.

So let's get this straight... you stated as fact that he would be a Top 10 pick in the '22 draft. Not that he might be, or had a chance to be. That *barring injury* he would be a Top 10.

Then given 5-to-1 odds on that, you pivot to him being picked in the first three rounds and needing 25-to-1 on that. So which is it? Is he going to be a Top 10 pick, or does he have a less than 5% chance of being a Day 2 pick?

Either way, that's enough on this topic. It's not really important. I just didn't understand where you were coming from initially, and wanted to clarify. I think we're getting further away not closer.

Costello hurt again. Could they lose to lowly Oregon St? Without Costello its possible, they're ground and pound is wheezing and Mills didn't do squat vs Nwtn the first time Costello was hurt.

There is a very reasonable chance they finish with 5+ losses at which point they're one more mediocre season away from total irrelevance. Once they're more closely associated with 7-5 style seasons than competing for PAC12 championships their nationwide recruiting will dry up and that will do wonders for Notre Dame. This difference between Notre Dame classes being "good" and "elite" is basically a handful of players like Adebo.
I don't see that any of Stanford's commits had offers from ND, while we beat them for Tyree, Baker and Carmody. 247 does not list any OVs scheduled and the prospects for further recruits than these sixteen seems remote. RB E.J. Smith, OT Andrew Gentry, and DE Tuli Tuipulotu - all listed as "Warm" to Stanford - have not visited and seem destined to go elsewhere.
Stanford 2020 Football Commits

Their class may finish without any QB, RB, DE, LB, and S with two of the sixteen commits Special teamers. Tanner McKee, QB, however, will probably return from his mission. Averaging eighteen a year over the last three classes, this class not only needed to fill those needs but ideally should have been a class of twenty or more. Their final three conference games are Colorado, Wash St, and Cal, all with one conference win each. Losing one of those games and to ND would leave them with a 6-6 record. The Trees offense averages twenty-two ppg and the defense averages giving up twenty-eight ppg.
