Brian Kelly Sends Notre Dame Players Home and Suspends All Football Program Activities

  Brian Kelly Sends Notre Dame Players Home and Suspends All Football Program Activities The sports world is being rocked by the fears surrounding coronavirus. The NBA was the first to suspend play and the NCAA has followed that lead by cancelling conference tournaments. It is easy to forget about how all of this impacts both professional and college football too. Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly released a statement reminding us that everyone is being affected. He has sent his players home and canceled team activities. To ourIt is easy to forget about how all of this impacts both professional and college football too.

Ian Book (born March 30, 1998) is an American football quarterback who currently plays for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Book played high school football at Oak Ridge High School in El Dorado Hills, California. He originally committed to Washington State but flipped his commitment to Notre Dame .

MIAMI (AP) — Numbers do not tell the whole story when it comes to Dwyane Wade this season. The statistics from this Miami Heat season scream that he’ s in serious decline. He’ s never shot worse, either from the field or from 3-point range.

Editor’s note: The roughest of drafts of this story existed before it became clear Notre Dame would need to cancel 14 spring practices, including the Blue-Gold Game. The premise of it still holds, though it certainly is no longer the pressing concern in anyone’s mind.

A three-year starting quarterback carries many expectations with him, not the least of which is to lead all that is a college football team both on and off the field, but while Ian Book will be Notre Dame’s most prominent leader this season, presuming we are lucky enough to enjoy football this fall, he will not be the only leader.

Ian Book excelled in his first start of the season, providing clarity to yet another murky Notre Dame quarterback situation. Brandon Wimbush got Notre Dame ' s bounceback season started, but Ian Book finished it out. It doesn't seem like Brian Kelly has left much doubt.

The Irish coaching staff had only one morning to assess its team on the field this spring, but the very first thing head coach Brian Kelly had to say afterward was praise of the team’s leadership.

“I’m really pleased with the leadership of our team,” Kelly said. “That was evident today.”

That leadership — whoever provided it, a guessing game continued below — did not need to establish itself on the field this spring, a fortunate fact given Notre Dame will not hold another practice for the foreseeable future.

“A lot of it occurs outside of the practice time,” Kelly said. “A lot of it has been developed prior to when we get on this field by setting standards and expectations. They know what they want to accomplish.”

Those standards and expectations may have needed to be lightened a bit the last couple weeks, but the long-term Irish goal remains the same. Already having that identity set may be a bit of a status quo, at least for 10-15 teams in the country, but the process of achieving it generally takes a bit longer. Per Kelly — and again, this was all before everything turned upside down — Notre Dame’s roster had already come to grips with the work ahead of it to achieve that goal. That may seem like an obvious step, but it often takes longer than winter workouts to reach, sometimes extending into September, frankly.

Hopefully, if we all continue to behave, a few weeks from now will bring more certainty regarding the disastrous effects of the coronavirus pandemic, but for now, all we know is we are in a long tunnel of sports darkness.

In a coincidence, as the city that follows the most sports most closely turned off its lights, its local university proved there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

The University of Notre Dame was founded on November 26, 1842 by Father Edward Sorin, CSC, who was also its first president, as an all-male institution on land donated by the Bishop of Vincennes. Today, many Holy Cross priests continue to work for the university, including as its president.

“We had a meeting [in early March] with the staff, and this is the first team that I’ve had that has really established in their own mind who they are and who they want to be,” Kelly said. “That’s hard to have, 18-to-21-year-olds really come together and say, this is who we want to be, this is how we’re going to go to work every day.”

It is idealistic to say those players self-motivated through winter workouts so getting the work in at home should follow course. There was greater group pressure then, not to mention strength coaches taking notes. And, obviously, there was less to worry about in the bigger picture.

Nonetheless, if that roster had already focused on itself, it may be able to do so moving forward, as well. That will begin with a few players taking charge, just as they would in the locker room or on the field.

“You don’t need a lot of guys out there yelling, because they’ve set a standard on how they want things accomplished,” Kelly said.

Letter: Leadership? More like liarship

  Letter: Leadership? More like liarship This is an administration that abhors scientists and seeks to silence their findings with misinformation. Remember Sharpiegate? As late as February 28th Rep. Larry Buchson, M.D. appeared on CSPAN and said “This will turn out to be just like regular flu and I think that our people think that that’s the case.” Fauci (aka “our people”) said on Feb. 10 “Is there a risk this is going to turn into a global pandemic? Absolutely yes!” and “This is 10 times more lethal than seasonal flu”. So this DOCTOR misrepresented the findings of our medical experts. Another word for this is LIED.

This book focuses more on the cathedral than any one character, that one reads much more like a traditional story, with characters we spend lots of time with.(less). The novel would have been more accurately titled “The Archdeacon of Notre Dame .” (Frollo was not a judge as in the Disney movie.

2. “The bells of notre dame ” was a late addition to the score. The opening number can make or break a musical. Keep your eyes peeled: When Quasimodo sings “Out There,” Belle can be seen wandering through the streets of Paris—and, true to form, she’ s got her nose stuck in a book .

The Irish return two captains in 2020 in Book and senior right tackle Robert Hainsey. Though both well-spoken, neither is exactly a vocal leader. 

“[Book’s] presence itself has been great,” Kelly said. “He’s thoughtful.

“What’s great leadership? To me, when you battle through adversity, after the Michigan game for him to lead our football team to six consecutive wins, that’s pretty good. That shows some resilience and some leadership and all those guys know that.

“They want to follow a guy like that just because of his actions from last year. He’s got a ton of credibility and a lot of respect from his peers. He doesn’t really need to walk around and scream and yell. He’s got a presence about him.”

The thoughts of overcoming adversity could apply to Hainsey, as well, after breaking his ankle in November and working his way back into some action in the first (and only) spring practice.

Who will join them as captains in 2020 is a tougher guessing game than usual, given the lack of spring practices to sort out some of the depth chart, but a pile of fifth-year starters could make the default choices pretty clear, particularly if they lead the way in checking on teammates during these uncertain times and then holding them accountable to staying in as best of shape as possible while remaining safe.

Without spring practice, football coaches try to fill void

  Without spring practice, football coaches try to fill void Since taking over as Florida State coach in December, Mike Norvell has spent seemingly endless hours laying the foundation of his program. Winter is time for coaches to deliver a consistent message, build the culture they want and get players to buy into a way of going about their business whether they are in the weight room, a meeting room or classroom.Norvell has seen plenty of positive signs. Spring practice is the first opportunity to see how it translates to the field. The Seminoles got in three practices before the coronavirus outbreak shut down college sports and upended nearly everything else.

More than four hours later, fire chief Jean-Claude Gallet said the main structure had been "saved and preserved" from total destruction. No other site represents France quite like Notre - Dame . Its main rival as a national symbol, the Eiffel Tower, is little more than a century old.

Age-wise, Hainsey is actually behind both left tackle Liam Eichenberg and right guard Tommy Kraemer along the offensive line. Given the lack of experience anywhere else on offense, at least one of them is likely to join as a captain, if not both.

Sticking with Kelly’s thoughts of adversity, sixth-year cornerback Shaun Crawford and fifth-year defensive end Daelin Hayes are both experienced in recovering from injuries while keeping their spirits up. They also may be the most vocal of these initial thoughts.

Naming seven captains a year ago was a surprise, so Kelly may stick with only four or five of these potential six, but even recognizing six would not be outlandish. If they can keep the roster trending in the singular direction it was in the winter, then they will have earned it.
