The staff for not getting the kid in and losing him to Michigan within 48 hours. Uh duh. Kudos for the kid being straight but why have the kid at spring ball or sign an NLI when he wasn't ready. So bad of a situation that Michigan picks him up within the week? Still looks bad. Kids a decent kid obviously for being straight.
Do you understand how NLI's work and how and why a kid would be let out of one?
He signed his national letter of intent
because both he and ND thought he would come to ND. It was almost like he intended
to come to ND. Unless a kid is an EE and has already graduated, they are all simply letters of intention
because the kids haven't actually graduated from high school, have incomplete transcripts, and can't enroll in college. By and large, it works this way for the rest of the student body. If you are accepted into the school in December, then proceed to get 7 F's your second semester of your senior year, it may not work out at ND.
If a kid isn't even going to be accepted into the school, why wouldn't ND and MF let him out of his letter of intent? His intentions would never result in reality. You think it looks bad for ND now? Wait until ND makes a kid honor an NLI that can't even be accepted into the school- that will play out real well in the media and recruiting circles. And in this day and age of transfer rules, why on earth would ND not let him out as well?
You have this weird disdain for ND that seeps into every thread. Here, you're now further mad at ND for letting a non-non-qualifier out of his NLI. It never ends. Your anti-ND disposition knows no ends. Please explain to us the benefits of not letting Hillman out of his NLI and how that is rooted in any sense of reality or logic. If you can't do that, simply post less and read more.
