You can never have enough guys like Brady Quinn. He has that special something -- that "it" factor that people talk about. It permeates positive energy throughout your entire organization."

Wait a minute? I though Charlie Frye had "it" ? Or did he fumble "it" away against SD and Houston? Or toss "it" away more than he threw "it" to the end zone.

Where did "it" go during the Sugar Bowl for brady?

Did Ben crash his "it" into a car?

What a load.

Yeah, that cliche is up there with the one being thrown around with the Cavs if they end up with the #5 seed and play Miami in the 1st round: "you are gonna have to beat them sometime in the playoffs" or something like that.

Anyway, I've gone from absolutely loathing Quinn while he was at Notre Dame....to now wanting him to be the pick. Three months ago I would never have considered him....but everyday I slowly jumped onto his bandwagon. I don't think we could go wrong with JaMarcus, Quinn, A Pete or Thomas....we need any of them. My fingers are crossed that the guy we pick is the one who doesn't bust though.

You know, I know Weiss wants to look good and pump up his guys, but I got to believe that if he didn't really feel that way about Quinn, he wouldn't be so vocal about him.

If I'm wrong about that, I still would not believe that Charlie would give his good buddy Romeo bad advice in private conversations. I'm sure Charlie would give Romeo his true thoughts on the kid.

Of Course, Charlie could be wrong, But I feel better about his honest opinion on Quinn than any scout or "football expert".

I think it says a lot about Quinn should we pass altogether on him.

If I had to rate the 4 on "bust potential" it would look like this:

1. Russell
2. Quinn
3. Thomas
4. Peterson

Yogs, not to think the worst of people, but Quinn going top 5 is a boost for Charlie's recruiting base. And don't fool yourself, the ND power base is nuts as far as their expectation level. You can't succeeed there, and XCahrlie is probably feeling the heat already for what was really an underachieving season where they got spanked by every good team and needed huge rallies to even be > .500 .

ND admin and fan wantto go to heaven, but they don't want to die.

They won a titile and perennially competed for titles with Holtz via 700 V + M SAT kids, thugs out of Chicago and other similar hood, and roids monsters. Now they want the same results with guys who can pass calculus, know high tea ettiquette, and piss Evian.

Not in this lifetime, and not in the next.

The bloom is off Weiss. Having the ability to show recruits that you CAN still be a high # 1 pick out of ND - I mean I don't even remember the last high ND pick - is crucial for Weiss.

He's got an agenda.
