I've been trying to remove it. But you know the bugs on this site.

Even leaving from the closest edges of commerce, the ride out to the Denver airport is a road trip all its own.
Well unlike the FSU fans on this board, I would hope ND would let him out of his LOI if he truly doesn't want to be at ND.
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
Private schools seemingly have a pension to simply grant the request with greater ease.
The Placerville reporter, who could be mistaken for someone sleeping on the Vanderdoes' couch and doing their yardwork, too, has reiterated (through the family) that it's not a grade/eligibility issue. Yeah...mmkay.
Many expect EV's release to be quick and painless - which for me, screams 'Grades'.
TBH I don't see the upside of not letting him out of the LOI. Yeah, maybe in some impossible to measure way it might make the next EV take the recruiting process and his decision to sign a LOI more seriously, but I wouldn't bet on it. And the likelihood of that benefitting ND is small. At the same time, you have the bad PR of ND trying to force an 18 y/o to come to their school when he obviously doesn't want to. Other schools absolutely will use this against ND in future recruiting battles. And what do you even have if you force him to come to South Bend? He's a disgruntled player who wants to be somewhere else eating up a scholarship on your roster. He probably transfers after a year anyway. Not exactly a plan for building a successful program over time.
What are you talking about
For once you make sense and I completely agree with you.
Agree. No sense in making some one stay that doesn't want to be there(or can't be there).
Other ways to teach 17 year old kids 'life lessons' than making them sit out of football for two years.
You'd just release him free and clear?
yep, use the scholly on a kid on the roster who wants to be there and currently doesn't have a scholly. What good comes from not releasing him?
What makes you say he doesn't want to be at ND
Right now it is all hearsay and rumor. Assuming he doesn't want to be here. IF he wants to be at ND then it would be a nonissue.
That's usually the case when a player requests a release.
Didn't know he requested a release... link?
Didn't know that he didn't ... link?
am I being trolled?
That is just idiotic. You have a link to prove Derrick Green didn't request a transfer?
