    Why? Seemed to me that was the issue the first half of the aTm game. I thought that was the wake up call we needed. I guess we'll see...

    Re: 2 Players Sent Home for Curfew Violation

    Two players (who knew they weren't going to play in the game) acted selfishly and are being punished for it. I don't see this as an indication that the rest of the team isn't taking this trip seriously. That's way too big a leap.

    Looks like we've got plenty of folks already doing enough worrying for the rest of us, so I'm not gonna. Can't help but think this much ado about very little. Monday can't come soon enough.

    Sorry I'm going to join the worrying crowd. I assume the team meeting was called after this incident from what I've read but all of this doesn't seem to bode well to me as far as where this teams focus lies. Notre Dame is going to be extremely hungry and if this team comes in sleepwalking it can get away from us quickly.

    I really hope the senior leadership can regain the focus and intensity they'll need for an epic game on Monday night. Word coming from some of the guys interviewed made it sound like practice went much better, let's hope so.

    I'm sure you know more than I do. I was just going off what I've picked up through the board. The order is not important to me, just the potential distraction.

    Well obviously I have no insight into this but their dismissal happened somewhere close in this timeline of events. Good grief. My point was only that this seems to have connecting dots. To your point I hope this is all A ok now, but do those on this board who are dismissing this so lightly really believe it isn't at least on the minds of the other players who may have to answer questions about this? Whether they were starters or not they were part of the TEam and it can't help but be an added distraction that "to my knowledge" they didn't have to deal with last year -- or that ND is facing this year.

    I know many of you are playing it cool but, I'm just saying that when you hear about this type of stuff with other teams in the past, it usually doesn't end well.

    I seem to recall a young man that didn't get to play in the Orange Bowl one yr for us for the same thing and we did fine without him. It's a team sport. Hopefully this will teach both of them a valuable life lesson and serve as an example for the other players.

    Did the leaders on these teams hold a players only meeting "in the past"? I think our leadership will set up and not let this affect the other players on the team.

    This is clutter. We know how coach views clutter. It is unsightly. Therefore it is removed. Hope these guys learn from this.

    The panicking over the hotel needs to stop. ESPN has trolled you, and you ate it up. if you think the team hotel is going to make our team forget how to play football, Or that all of a sudden our guys became the 92 Miami Hurricanes, stop it. thank you.
