ND Receiver Suspended ... Again

Recommended Posts

This is the 3rd strike for this kid. Suspended after an arrest for weed before the start of the 2016 season. Suspended the first 4 games of 2017 for a violation of team rules. Now this. It never ceases to amaze me how some kids seem determined to squander a golden opportunity. I hope he gets his act together. I just don’t think it should be at Notre Dame.

Indiana, in the first two years Of coach Wilsons tenure, went through two very good DC's. Because of money. What was the circumstance in the ND case? Money?

When the USA Today list of coaching salaries came out Kelley only made 1.6 million. Elkos deal is for 1.8 million starting, with incentives.

So Yes, most of the movement by these assistants, can be traced to money. And there we have it,  the big programs get the cream when they want it. The rest of the schools in the middle to the bottom of conferences will stay there until ADs or schools pony up.

Dave Amanda is going to make 2.5 million. Elmo will make 1.8...both as coordinators. It’s crazy that the head coach of Notre Dame is making less than coordinators. I am not an Irish fan but I think Coach Kelly has done a pretty good job. I saw yesterday that he had said that he thinks coordinator paying is getting out of control so maybe he has a philosophical resistance to raising his or his assistants pay. I don’t know but I am with you in that if you want to be elite you need to bring in and KEEP great coaches. 

Further with your point...I think schools can bring in a quality coordinator and he can do a great job, but if he leaves after a year then that to me is a double whammy. One you lost a good coach; two your kids are going to have to learn a whole new system and I think there is a ton of value in quality-consistency.

To that point, ND may revert next year, if a new defense has to be learned.  I know it effected Indiana’s progress, win loss wise, for several seasons under Wilson. Having to learn a new defense 3 years ina row.
