    Thanks for the article Stu. I knew Augie a little since he was a regular at Farley's food sales. He was a really nice guy and always had a smile on his face. Boy could he light it up on the hardwood. Such a shame about his injuries. I see where he's working with Fred McLeod doing the Cavs games. McLeod did the Pistons for years.

    He's a homer but he keeps it exciting and adds a lot of insight. He can be very critical when there is a lack of hustle.

    Thanks for the article Stu, you have to wonder what type of NBA career Carr would have had if it weren't for the injuries. He was a great college player.

    Yeah, I know, I step on some toes with my rants about Purdue and my own daughter in Indy is a Purdue fan but my feelings run deeper than ND/Purdue, it’s IU/Purdue also. I’ll try not to say anymore.

    Tim, you certainly are free to express your opinion. I just have a real soft spot for Purdue because that's my Dad's alma mater, and I am inclined to defend the Boilers when someone puts them down, even you, my friend. For the record, I'm an IU fan also (wife and daughter alumnae) I have to smile that your daughter is a Purdue fan. Do you speak to each other? :)

    Sid,
    LOL. When speaking to my daughter I try not to let my feelings about Purdue enter the conversation. I love her too much to hurt her feelings over a football team. I can defiantly respect your feelings for PU given your father was grad. I’ll try to keep my feelings about PU to myself on this board out of respect for you.

    June 21st is setting up to be the biggest recruiting weekend of the summer. A lot of 2020 targets will be on campus.

    Also, remember Javon McKinley who got in trouble when a campus cop tried to help him back to his dorm when they found him drunk and he woke up confused and assaulted them. Well right now it seems like he might not be gone from ND, I saw on Irish Illustrated that Prister projects he'll be playing this fall at ND. I thought he was a goner, just like that kid who went home to Ohio on Spring Break a few years ago and did something (meth, X, ? ) and just went nuts at a bar. He made lot of racist statements, etc and was never back at ND. I think he ended up at Youngstown State.

    ND's top target at RB, 5 star Chris Tyree is set to announce his college choice next Thursday. Some think the Irish have a good chance, but he reportedly loved his visit to Oklahoma and Alabama is also in the mix.

    No matter what he decides it helps ND, they have been slow playing a bunch of RB's and if he comes they can decide on whether or not they want a 2nd RB in the class, if he doesn't then they can ramp up the recruiting on their other targets and fill the slot.

    we haven't had a high 4* or 5* RB commit in a long time. Hopefully we got our guy this time.

    Wow, seems like most of the predictions are for this kid to commit to ND this week. I’m afraid the fan base will go off the rails if he doesn’t. I been thru this many times and then saw the kid flip to another school when the time came. He’s a difference maker and I believe would thrive in Long’s offense. I refuse to lose sleep over these kids anymore so if he commits to ND fine, if not life goes on. It’s his loss, not ND. We’ll be just fine.

    It will certainly be a huge letdown for Irish fans, and another kid who Irish fans really hope will fall their way, Braiden McGregor, is set to announce the day after Chris Tyree announces. It could be double joy or double downers. Tyree is thought to be between OU and ND, McGregor is thought to be between Michigan and ND.
