    ND Handling of Star WR Michael Floyd

    Mindlessly surfing the morning stories, stumbled across a short roundtable discussion on how ND coach was going to handle the star receiver's 3rd alcohol related offense. Seems as though Kelly is going to take a "firm" stance, where as Floyd will either be suspended the whole season or no games at all (note sarcasm).

    This to me is complete posturing on Kelly's part. Does anyone here think that when September 2nd roles around Floyd will not be suited up for the home opener. Of course not, unless this guy is an idiot and cannot stay away from trouble for another three months, he will get away with no penalty. We wonder why these athletes seem to have little or no regards for rules, its because there are no repercussions. We aren't doing them any favors with this treatment. What happens when this kid leaves ND, and he messes up. If not in the NFL, he will likely suffer harsher penalties because of these past transgressions w/o punishment. These coaches and staffs always preach about relationships and making better men, it really proves that is only cliches when these instances arise. This is an instance where Coach Kelly could help this individual become a better person. Obviously the young man has an alcohol problem - 3 arrests in less than 3 years. This is a time for suspension, drug and alcohol counseling, and some lifestyle changes. Coach Kelly and the ND staff could play a crucial role in changing the direction of his life. But because it would jeopardize season success, and the almighty dollar, Floyd will not get the help he needs.

    Kind of a sad reminder of the world we live in.

    Happy MD everyone!

    The fact is as good as that class of WR was coming out of HS(Jones, Green, Floyd) Floyd has been the best of all 3. He is big, strong, and fast. He will have the measurables of Jones, but actual on field production to back it up. If he can stay out of trouble you draft him in the first round. It is hard to keep that type of player on the bench. I would expect something like a Green suspension. ND is bringing back the defense, and they can afford to lose a little offensive pop.

    You sound like an Irish hater. It happens all around the NCAA, this one is just more publicized because its ND. Kelly will do the right thing and Floyd will become one of ND's greatest receivers ever.
