Matt Elam is visiting Notre Dame today


The biggest recruit, literally, on Kentucky football’s big board is in South Bend, Indiana today to see what those Irish are always Fightin’ about. John Hardin’s Matt Elam is taking his first unofficial visit to Notre Dame today after picking up an offer during his first conversation with the coaching staff less than two weeks ago. Those damn Catholics, as Gordon Gee calls them, replaced Florida in Matt Elam’s top five after Notre Dame assistant coach Bob Elliott gave Elam a call on June 14 to gauge his interest, and in turn, offer a scholarship. Elam is also considering Alabama, Kentucky, Louisville and Ohio State, in no particular order, he says.

If KSR could give any advice to Elam on his visit to South Bend, we would tell him to not have high hopes for enjoying the nightlife (it’s terrible there); order the nachos at Legends restaurant; and to avoid any and all females who approach him via AOL Instant Messenger, Twitter, MySpace or Facebook. We don’t want our top in-state prospect getting catfished while on a visit in Indiana.

    I worked in South Bend for a couple of months & you are right there is nothing to do there but go to school or work. They think just because they are Notre Dame that the world owes them something. What a bunch of stuck up a-holes. And to make things even worse than that, the people that aren’t ND fans are damn hoosiers.

    GO IRISH! ND has gotten several KY kids the last few years! Why do you think the Kentucky’s top prospect last year went to Notre Dame, Football school and the education, no brainer!

    I’ll never understand why KSR like to hate on ND so much. There are a lot of people who root for UK in basketball, and Notre Dame in football. I guess success breeds hate, and this is a Drew Franklin column.

    Anyone who roots for UK in basketball and not football is not a real UK fan and thus deserves no respect or true glory. Go be a Norte dame fan, with all that “success”. You have no home here with we real UK fans

    Not sure why you made a personal attack on me when I was just expressing a general opinion. Im from Kentucky and go to UK, so I am and always have been a huge UK fan. I root for them to do well in football. But my grandpa loves Notre Dame, and I love my grandpa, so I ended up liking Notre Dame too. Assholes like you are the people who give this fanbase a bad reputation.

    Sorry, #10. I won’t be a jerk about it, but honestly…you are a UK fan or a ND fan. I get the whole “root for another team”, but having favorites who only win is a bit bandwagon-ish.

    I have a friend who is a “proclaimed” UK basketball fan and a Michigan football fan. He lives in Indiana. Say what?!

    My question is, “why”?

    Its just a family thing. Ive grown up liking who my family rooted for. Yes they are the teams that are usually good but I will be a fan of them whether good or not. I sat through Vandy beating us 40-0 this year, and my first time at Rupp was Gillespie’s last year at UK when we didnt make the tournament. The first time I went to a Notre Dame football game was the 3OT loss to Navy in the season they went 3-9. I guess that looks suspect because both are historically dominant, but I will be a fan of these teams regardless of the success they have my whole life. And luckily, I don’t need the permission and approval of people like #11 to consider myself a fan

    We better hope he doesn’t care about which school can give him an education valued highly everywhere in the country.
