    WF has been in the top 40 the 3 years he has been there and tied for 8th in turnovers, something we need.

    Well realistically the guy was going to get a head coaching gig at some point, now they need a new OC who the hell knows what direction the team is going to go in. Right now they need to get the DC hired then go get a new OC. Hopefully this doesn't hurt the recruiting class but who knows.

    Yea. Good for Sandford though, it's the natural progression. I wish him the best.

    Finally Kelly made a move. I feel like he doesnt like to fire people. U really have to blow up for you to get fired. The only negative about this is He is a good recruiter. Besides that he was a really bad TE and special teams coach. I do think losing Sanford and Booker we will lose some kids. More to do with sanford.

    I don't think he's even close to the best recruiter. Denson does a great job. Lyght is pretty good too (with Bishop Gorman ties). Even Denbrock and Elston are stronger recruiters in my opinion.

    He is a decent recruiter. He recruited Kmet this year. Here is the class of 2016 that he was the lead recruiter on.

    Jalen Elliot
    Stepherson


    U are right the #1 recruiter and #2 on ND are#1 Denson and its between Sanford ,Denbrock and Elston for #2.

    Love the DC hire and the fact he can bring in his own guys!!! That means they will all be on the same page for once. No to get these kids ready.

    Sanford hurts, but he may be back in a few yrs, ND needs to keep an eye on him. It seems him and his family really like ND. I don't think we will lose recruits because of him leaving. They certainly won't follow him to WK. I Think we'll be OK. Seems these kids want to be hear and not waiting till the last day to commit on ESPN like some douche who choose ND and then went to UCLA......

    I agree, ND is recruiting the right kind of guys for ND. They are ND type guys. Not flashy all about me kind of guys. Think about it no one on ND is flashy and all about himself. They are a team.

    We do have 1 dirty player in Tillery.
