Was listening to a Chris Zorich podcast with Tim Brown, Wes Prichett, The Rocket, and Joe Theisman. Hello!. They all have pretty decent sources inside Notre Dame, and Tim Brown's son works on the staff. Apparently, according to Pritchett, Freeman "jumped Kelly's ass" in the team meeting. Team captains went straight to the AD afterwards to vouch for Freeman. I don't think Freeman is going to LSU. Good God I hope there is some truth to that.

It's just stupid to post something that tells nothing, be called out for it, then 'yep shouldn't have posted it' when it can be deleted.
I've seen it... won't go into detail, but generally I didn't think it was overly concerning considering what's already common knowledge. Side note: I know people are desperate for any kind of information, but people should really stop paying attention to the WRNL crew for any sort of serious information, breakdown, or reaction during important times.

IMO if Campbell was the choice it would be announced. No reason to hold back on an announcement. ND is most likely considering Fickell or Freeman. Campbell is the fallback choice. They can get him if they make an offer. ND has to decide if they really want to let Freeman get away. They do have a #4 recruiting class that Freeman would likely retain.

We’d better hope Notre Dame hires the Cincy coach. From all the chatter that Campbell has let Notre Dame know he’s interested, I don’t see him sticking around Ames if Notre Dame offers.

Any scenario involving Matt staying in Ames is perfect. I would love the Cincy guy to stay in Cincy, though, as they move into the league. Them staying a top 10 program has a lot of benefits for the rest of the conference.

Saw screenshots of the 247 article on Twitter. There is a lot to it regarding NDs, but not a ton regarding CMC, just a small tidbit stating information we already knew. CMC and his camp have let ND know they’re interested, and ND has let him know they’re interested. It’s like two dogs sniffing each other’s asses.

The rest of the article focuses on the other coaches they’re looking at.

Kelly just left ND despite likely being in playoff.
Fickell will do the same. You don't wait around for a job like that.
Zero chance Fickell bails on coaching a playoff game.

Football Scopp is usually very dialed in on these things and that article doesn’t even mention Matt Campbell.

Yes and when they do and employer is aware they develop a mutually agreed to exit strategy. I don’t know how a guy does a job with one foot out the door.
So you want CMC to leave?

How many college coaches don't generally do this in 2021?
