I saw that. I wonder if this means that she will be eating a year of eligibility or if she will get 5 due to COVID.
If she is losing, I'm not sure it is worth it to eat a year on a mediocre season - unless she can come in and really contribute.

This article answered my question and rubbed some salt in the wound about Ivey's son. I still cringe that we didn't get him on the men's team. What a shame.

Off Topic for this thread but Purdue and ND are headed in different directions for Mens' BB. As a result, do not blame Ivey's son for going to Purdue. (Not only is Purdue the Big Ten's youngest team, they have no seniors and are getting two Top 40 recruits next season - arrow pointing up for them)

For those interested the women play at 11:00 am today against Syracuse on the ACC network. And SU is supposed to have a good team....top 25 caliber.

4 ****ing points in the 4th, is an absolute disgrace. So far I just can’t get excited about Ivey. This team is way to talented.

Wow.....very disappointing 4Q after being up by 13 or 15 in the 3rd. They just fell apart they left Syracuse shooters wide open, SU just out hustled them and turned the ball over I think 3 or 4 times in 4Q. On the bright side Miles the ND guard that just graduated from high school a week or two ago played today. She is good. She can handle the ball excellent and will be fun to watch her passing in the years to come

Syracuse tied the game with 5:13 and had 8 offensive rebounds from that time till the end of the game, compared to none for Notre Dame. That’s hustle and strength and conditioning. This is why ND keeps collapsing. The other teams are in better shape.

They all seem really out of shape. No gas left at the end - especially Brunelle. They should keep her our until she gets back in shape. Too slow. Defensive liability even though she can score.

To everyone’s point those last few minutes Syracuse had at least several blocked shots. The Irish were just to tired to get off their feet.

There’s no way she’d be carrying all that weight at UCONN. In shape or not, whatever they’re doing with her nutritionally is wrong.

Default ND beats Pitt

ND wins by 11 ......59-48 ....against Pitt tonight (Monday). Miles that high school freshman guard looked good she makes things happen. She’s not the biggest or fastest she just keeps the ball moving. It sounds like they are an NCAA bubble team. Oh Sam B did not play tonight....my guess is it is Covid related.

ND and Purdue MBB programs are heading in two different directions. That is probably the reason.

Hey Frankus wrote the below on another thread I just moved it over here. I pretty much agree with his evaluation.



Just watched ND get destroyed by Louisville.

Ivey needs to get much tougher with her players. The difference in toughness between Walz and how he coached his players vs Ivey was huge. They out hustled ND all game long.

Ivey also has to get on the refs. ND got a ton of lousy calls, which Ivey should have been all over the refs.

Miles is already the most important player. If she develops a reliable outside shot she’s going to be a superstar.
Brunelle can’t defend post players. She needs to lose 20 lbs and be a perimeter player. That said, at least she can score consistently. With the proper S&C and development she could be much better in the next two years.
Not impressed at all by People’s. She can’t shoot. She’s a garbage points player. Trouble is, she can’t shoot free throws.
Westbeld will get better, but she’s not ready to play with premier post players. She needs to get stronger and quicker. She’s only a fresh. So, it’s up to Ivey to bring out her talent.
Walker is a good athlete with poor basketball skills. She’s not going anywhere professionally.
Gilbert is simply not athletic enough. She’s a 2nd tier player.
Mabrey is too streaky to be a full time starter if ND is going to be elite
Citron better have Miles type potential if ND wants to sniff the Elite 8

Overall, McGraw had a lot of recruiting misses during a period when ND should have really loaded up on talent. Ivey has got to get some superstars and coach her players harder. If she doesn’t, it could be a long time before ND is relevant again.

I actually like Peoples. She does get a lot of garbage baskets, but you need that. She's a good rebounder.

I though Gilbert was pretty good last year. She has been hurt this year, so I think that has impacted her - obviously she was out for several months.

I like Ivey, but holy **** this was a disaster of a season. Obviously, tons of things were working against them but dam. I hope they don’t get in, and please lose some weight Sam!

The thing that strikes me is how bare McGraw left the cupboard. She had a roster full of elite talent, all who are in the WNBA with Arike Scoring Champion , and there’s nobody in the senior or junior classes who are going to be drafted. I could speculate, as ND has a habit of pulling the plug on successful coaches recruiting (see Lou Holtz/Frank Leahy/Digger Phelps) , but it’s also possible Muffet staked everything on her last two teams and did not spend enough time recruiting. Secondly, the first person to be fired is the S&C coach. Look at the difference in Kelly’s teams conditioning after he fired Longo and hired Ballis. Night and day.

I agree I am really surprised also at the lack of elite talent in the senior and junior class.....Connecticut just keeps on reloading year after year after year
