"Alex Anzalone isn't as fluid of an athlete as I expected. He's a little awkward in his movements, but a very big guy." Keith Niebuhr
He's a good LB for ND but he's not a 3 down LB at UF or most SEC programs.
So you take a Florida alum who works for the St Petersburg Times opinion as more valued than nationally recognized talent evaluators on a guy you knew you were not getting? Brilliant.
And for him not to be SEC material or overhyped as you say, he was offered by Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Tenn plus Oklahoma, USC, Mich, Ohio St plus others. So your lil blurb from your Gator homer reporter doesn't carry much weight.

??? Dude Keith is the SE recruiting guy for 247. He's a national guy just like JC and Simmons. Try to keep up. Again, I nevr said the kid wasn't solid/good but he's not great. My stance on the kid has't changed since before he committed to tOSU...imo he's overhyped and not a 3 down SEC LB. LMAO at listing offers as a stamp of greatness. Think Jeff Luc when thinking of Analzone but atleast Luc played good comp and put up huge numbers unlike Analzone. Looks like Tarzan plays like Jane.

Anzalone's #s may not be great, but he only played 1st half of most games because they were blow outs.
3 time POTW
This post is why there is zero respect for you..and your vocal brothers.
Sportsmanship is something completely lost to you....and for a program deemed irrelevant by so many of you, you sure waste a ton of broadband trying to convince yourselves - and everyone else, they aren't relevant. An outstanding academic university where kids have the opportunity to earn a quality degree, and plenty of exposure to be selected by an NFL team. All this, while located in the middle of nowhere.
Admit it, that tiny private school in South Bend did more for CFB, against every conceivable odds, to become one of the greatest CFB powerhouses of all time. You have to coattail as an entire conference to accomplish half of what they have all on their own.
TV deal while maintaining their independence - on their terms, not in a football conference, yet they are still invited to the table...that's one hell of a powerful program.

"Here are provided seats of meditative joy, where shall rise again the destined reign of Troy." Virgil
+1 trojan1. Very well said
Cool history lesson. Princeton and Yale were once national football powers.
With that being said, the kid is still overhyped and stiff. Can't wait until the UA or USAA week when he gets exposed once he lines up with pads and against real comp.
I've said I have some concerns with AA, but you can't wait for him to fail or be exposed? Grow up! What do you think about the QB you guys have committed? Wasn't he the 10/12 option for you? Seems like no QB's wanted to play in da swamp...USC poster said it right, ND will always eat on it's own..Guess your coaching staff wasn't really after AA, that sound right? Please tell me UF fans have changed their tune on Ogundeko and he's an actual target by the staff??
Oh Notre Dame...
You love us
1.Not hard to beast out in shells. I guess that's the way you determine football players above the Mason Dixon. You guys get all bent out of shape when someone criticizes one of your commits but are quick to talk about a Mich or tOSU kid. I've always said the kid was overhyped and stiff...so what? I never said he was a bad player or sucked. The staff wanted the kid but you won't find any UF posters who are butthurt bc of his commit to ND.
2. I've questioned the staff taking a QB after missing on Bateman and Buchanan. IMO if they wanted to take a project then Woulard or O'Korn were better option. I'm not a fan of EO and his showing this weekend adds to th reasons. I hope he picks ND on the 20th.
Great pick up for ND. I would have loved for him to stay in our class. Oh well... on to the next one.
You got me

Umm, I've stated a few times I'm not as high on AA as most sites. I've even stated that on your board.. Agree that EO's showing at The Opening left a lot to be desired, but that's normally the case with NY kids that face horrible competition. Most need a RS year, hopefully Jones, 2012 recruit, does just that. Ishaq played, but would have benefited tremendously with a RS. Hearing he's really stepped it up this spring/summer..
Not surprised at your stupid argument...really?
"The Ivy League", the term began how, do you have a clue??? They don't grant athletic scholarships, assistance is granted to a student, not an athlete..with the same criteria as the general student population..basically, their teams are made up of the top minds in the country that have some interest to play some games for fun. A path they chose.
Notre Dame chose to play football at the highest level, building their tradition long after the Ivies chose not to play competitive football...
