I know dozens of die hard ND fans that have never heard the name Dante Moore. They don’t give a damn about recruiting. I think that’s the vast majority.

Those are the same guys I cannot stand watching games with... at least for the first few games. They are the fan that calls everyone by their number the first few games.

"That #23 looks good back there... his name Karen Williams?

I don’t believe many would hold a grudge if he signed. Once he’s in, he’s family. If he signed and the turned around and transferred, that’s a different story.

Most of the fan base doesn’t follow recruiting this closely. Most of my ND friends would know if someone like this committed, but would have no idea how the recruitment went.

We are the lunatic fringe.
FTFY
Shaun Davis said ND is still recruiting Dante and he's still talking to the commits. Apparently he's close with Braylon James.

At the end of the day, none of us posters know what's going on. I say we relax and just let this play out.

Hope springs eternal.

Hard to watch games with dudes like them. I wish it didn't matter to me as much lol nothing against them. I just can't grow out of my 13 year old self. Hasn't gone away with age. I can't conversate at all during a game with fans or non fans. My Wife says that when I'm watching a game and people try and talk to me, I look at them like pointing to the screen with a "let's pay attention to the game kind of face" .

My preferred ND game viewing atmospheres:
1) in the stadium with fellow ND megafans
2) at home with fellow ND megafans
3) at bar with fellow ND megafans
4) at home by myself
5) at home with wife and kids (both too young to be into it yet)



99) anywhere with hardcore ND haters or fair weather ND fans
100) anywhere with my father-in-law

Born and raised in Elkhart so I am used to being inside the stadium or tailgating around the stadium. Moving away and watching the game with someone like my father-in-law that I know is only watching with me to bond is really hard. Makes me want to move back. If I am watching on TV I much rather be solo.

My wife will tell me about 30 minutes before the game "I invited my dad over to watch"... I immediatly drink as much as I can pregame. Mostly because he thinks its the devils juice and I need to be drunk if hes coming over.

At least with haters, one can talk sh*t. It adds another dimension to the game. I’d put them above fair weather fans any day. There’s nothing worse than ND fans who are extremes - disinterested or prone to throw tantrums, both wanting attention like they’re the only ones watching the game.

We get along overall, he’s just an ND hater and poorly tries to hide it. He is very Flutie-like when watching games: Quiet when ND is up big, but starts getting chatty when games get close or when ND is getting ready to lose..

My FiL knows enough about sports to watch it and keep tabs on the local teams... but it gets really old hearing Karen Williams... is Manti still on the team.... why did they replace their QB from last year (forgetting kids graduate or get drafted)... or facts I already know "did you know they use real gold in their helmets?"

God I hope he goes to Oregon. Fade into the mist and be a no factor for 4 years. Just don’t go to Michigan. Although, he’d be like their only recruit this year 😂

If he went to Michigan their class would start to pick up immediately.
Not much left for them to get unless the poach. They aren’t really in it for many. I think they finish outside top 10 even if they get 1 5 star. I think he’s Oregon bound regardless. The CB points that way. Only the one Michigan lunatic has UofM seriously in it at 50/50. But this kid likes to play games. He could be committed to Ball State silently. While I think he goes to OR, I’ve had a weird feeling he’s always going to be a signing day to Michigan decommit once the dust settles. I think anyone recruiting him but Michigan loses ultimately, even OR as I could see a one year and transfer. My gut says Michigan in the end, but my head says OR. We shall see. Either way, I’m getting a little impatient not hearing even a whisper about the Irish looking at any other ‘23 kids.

He did. He landed another 5 star that wasn’t playing games and was ready to get to work.
That's great, for the 2024 class.
It's not good to whiff this year. Especially when most think we kind of whiffed last year.
We are trying to compete with teams that are taking two some years like Alabama.
We should try to grab Avery Johnson. Great potential.

We definitely need to be bringing in a top 10 or so QB every year or so like Bama, OSU, etc. But if Tommy can't do that then he needs to coach them up. If he can't do that, well, then he won't have a job for very long. The ball is in his court.
