Carlo and Tommy will not go to Ireland vs. Navy according to head coach Brian Kelly for off field infractions. That, of course, blows the QB situation wide open and opens the way for Dan Fox to be more firmly entrenched at I LB with Manti.
This was going to happen since both upperclassmen exhibited absolutely freshman style actions off the field–do I agree yes and no. For Rees certainly, for Carlo maybe not–trying to get Tommy out of bad situation, I applaud teammate trying to come to his defense buy bracing cops “my guys will get you” is not something a sane ND player should ever say to cops. Had to be done since the PSU scandal –I look for both to quickly get their ND degrees and join Weis at Kansas for 2013.
Carlo is a really heavy hitter when he plays–brings the wood as good as Manti but big dig on him is pass coverage which none of ND’s ILB’s can do including Manti. Manti gets a pass.
So, now the big deal is QB–the guy from Oklahoma started as a freshman–so why not Kiel–like to redshirt him but we really need a QB and Hendrix looks more to me like a fullback who can pass. If Golson is ever going to play it’s right now.
