    From a different perspective, one could liken this to Urban Meyer’s start at BG

    I agree with your take on it though

    in 2022 this is unlikely to be a positive development

    As an FSU alum it def has Willie Taggert vibes when he came in from Oregon and tried to lay the law down and work the hell out of the kids to set a new tone.

    It blew up in his face.

    That said, it could be that Marcus is laying a foundation and calling out a select few guys who aren’t in shape. Could obviously turn a mountain out of a molehill here…

    But I def hope it ends up like Willie Taggert….

    It's Notre Dame. I think they've already proven that if a kid or two have to die for the good of the foosball, they're down with it.

    No worries. The scissors lifts will be back from annual maintenance services shortly.

    You want Freeman to fail? I sure as hell do not (excepting Week 1 results), he is a distinguished Buckeye alum and seems to be turning into a damn good coach that frankly I would love to have on our staff if the timing would have worked out. Only reason I would want Freeman to trip up is for the selfish reason of reuniting him to our Buckeyes. With that being said, I want to punt the Domers into eternity in the opener, then see ND win out. I don't think that is incredibly likely (if we beat them badly it likely means they are overrated as others brought up), but a fella can wish right?

    Bestbuck36 Kyle Young man crush. Not ashamed

    Just sounded to me like he is calling his team soft and knows that their asses are about to be kicked all the way back to South Bend next month. Prepare your Anus!

    I don't want anybody to be successful at Notre Dame, especially a former Buckeye who gets caught out talking trash about his alma mater.

    He lost me with all his trashing of OSU to prop up ND. It’s been non stop grating on tOSU for recruiting purposes and I think it’s pretty low class for a dude who definitely knows better…..

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Yep. Not only does Notre Dame suck no matter who their coach is, but Freeman has gone out of his way (completely unnecessarily) to take swipes at Ohio State in some pathetic attempt to ingratiate himself in South Bend. There will be other Ohio State alumni coaches that I can root for, but Freeman won't be one of them.

    Exactly.

    Even if he had said the right things about his Buckeye experiences, which wouldn’t have been too difficult, I’d still want Freeman’s Domers to lose to almost anybody they play. They are a significant competitor to tOSU in recruiting, even more so when they are a legitimate top-10 team.

    Plus, their administration and fan base are largely comprised of self-righteous, sanctimonious pricks. So fuck ‘em.

    Well I guess I have lived under a rock on the bolded, I didn't know he said anything negative about OSU. Might have to do some research on that one and find my way out from under the rock, but did he get caught on tape or something saying bad things about OSU? I always want OSU alums (those who stuck with us anyways) to succeed wherever they go, but if they are trashing our school then that would make it much different.

    Don't we have some of those here on staff? Oops! My bad. Ours are simply elitist.

    He criticized our academics and said if he could do it over again, he’d have picked ND (to play at).

    He’s backtracked on both but the damage is done.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Fake Buckeye. I hope he flames out at Notre Dame and then flames out in some linebacker coach job in the NFLm, and that's the last we hear of Marcus Freeman.
