Sure hope things are okay without Mike Elston. Assistant coaches just don't come and go in this profession.

Word on the street is he took an OV to Boston College today. If that’s true, I guess he isn’t in the class anymore.

The BC Rivals guy says Hafley was able to convince Traore to do an overnight OV at their big recruiting weekend.
Not a good look to go there instead of to ND’s big weekend.

This has one of the BC reporters doubling down that it was an official.

Well if he wanted its official or not official status to stay on the DL probably doesn’t help their chances of flipping him back by making it extra awkward.

I wonder if Traore told ND and everyone that it was an unofficial, but it was an OV, & since the Rivals BC guy contacted BC to clarify they couldn’t lie to him since OVs are tracked, so he saved face by reporting it.
This happens. Reporters are told to keep quiet. But since he is trying to save face he lets the cat out of the bag.

Either way, one of Traore or that reporter are going to look really bad.
Either Traore for lying or the reporter for being wrong twice…

ND sites are saying it doesn’t matter either way.
ND staff gave him permission.
BC staff is pushing that it was an OV (probably for promotional reasons).
ND staff saying they treat it as an unofficial.
Traore says unofficial.
BC can call it whatever they want, ND & Traore don’t care & Traore isn’t going to BC.

So Tom checked independently on the ND side and they said it was a OV. So everyone on the BC side says OV and ND side/Traore says unofficial. Can we get some receipts?

If it was an official then your spot will be replaced.
Not if ND & Traore are treating it as an unofficial & the ND staff gave him permission to go.

He went with two HS teammates who were trying to get scholarships some where.

If BC wants to pay for his meal & call it an OV, whatever.

ND doesn’t care & Traore isn’t going there. It was decided before he even went.
