Notre Dame had two bits of big news this week, with the first being the NCAA putting the Irish on probation and the second being the decision by safety Houston Griffith to return to the program. WSBT Sportbeat's Sean Stires and I discuss both topics at length, and we also discuss Jafar Armstrong's transfer to Illinois.
0:59 - We talk about the decision by safety Houston Griffith to stay at Notre Dame, and what went into that decision.
3:14 - That is followed up by a quick discussion of how Cincinnati used their safeties under Marcus Freeman, and how we expect them to be used under Freeman at Notre Dame.
5:05 - We wrap up the discussion on Griffith by talking about how important his decision to return is for Notre Dame.
7:14 - Sean asks if any other players are considering coming out of the portal and returning to Notre Dame.
8:22 - We now talk about the NCAA placing Notre Dame on probation for recruiting violations, and my thoughts on what went down.
11:02 - One of the things that Notre Dame was punished for was head coach Brian Kelly posing for a picture with a recruit. We discuss the rule, and why it's an out-dated and bad rule.
13:26 - We talk about the biggest negative that comes from the announcement against Notre Dame by the NCAA.
14:32 - Sean asks about Jafar Armstrong, who is transferring to Illinois, and why he didn't pan out at Notre Dame.
