07:07 AM ET 05.08 | Thanks in part to Gunner Kiel's departure, Notre Dame's quarterback landscape behind Everett Golson remains somewhat unsettled, which is where Kyle Allen comes in. [Allen] had a busy week. Scholarships offers from Notre Dame, Ohio State and Fresno State started the week. Then an invite to a national quarterback competition and a visit to Wisconsin ended the week. ... The Irish and Buckeyes are the latest big-time programs to offer the 6-foot-3, 195-pound pro-style quarterback, but are almost a year behind schools like UCLA, Oklahoma State, Arizona and Arizona State. That won't harm them in the decision process though. "It's just these teams wanted to see me develop," Allen said.

Pro style QB?
That hasn't been BK's offense when he's had his most successful teams.
Curious; anyone got some insights here?

I'm glad someone yesterday noted how it is a tragedy Derrick Thomas was passed over yet again for the college football HoF.

Kyle Allen at ND? Well, just about everybody discounted McCarron prior to 2012. One can argue that McCarron came to Bama as "pro-style" QB suitable to LV's program approach to CFB. Though his stats seem understated in the shadow of 100+ play offenses and gaudy gunslingers, McCarron has displayed excellent pocket presence, good vision, good arm, good decision making, and the ability to gain yards with his feet when doing so is the best opportunity.

If BK learned anything watching his team get ground into limeade powder by LV's Bama team, he should be able to adapt Kyle Allen & the Irish O to perform in a similar fashion to the McCarron-led Bama O.

If FN keeps picking up South Bend Tribune stories do you expect them to be about SEC teams?
Blame FN, not us Domers, though we do enjoy seeing how it upsets all you Haters.
