re: Seems like the players thought we had him too
Freeman told his own players today he was leaving Cincinnati for lsu.

Freeman, per a source in Cincinnati with direct knowledge, had told his Bearcats’ linebackers Friday afternoon that he was departing and had chosen to accept LSU’s offer. Notre Dame sources had told FootballScoop earlier on Friday that the Irish appeared out of the mix to land Freeman, the Broyles Award semifinalist in 2020 after a third-straight season of stellar work atop the Bearcats’ defensive unit.

But Friday afternoon, Notre Dame leaders huddled and made another effort with Freeman, included an improved salary offer over the term of the deal, per sources with knowledge of the developments.

Did he really tell his players he was going to LSU?

Yes. Had a meeting with his linebackers early this afternoon and told them lsu. Notre Dame took another shot and raised his salary.

He decided the money was a wash and it was a much easier move to ND. Hes only planning on being a DC for 1 maybe 2 years.

Why is a JV DC from a third rate program the highest on the LSU list anyway?

Good stats against a huge list of nobodies.

So we clearly didn't offer him enough. The money should've never been close between us and ND (who is known for not paying well I.E. Kelly only makes 1.8M a year)

We offered him more than ND. He just decided he didn't want to move this far. The silver lining is hes only coaching defense and year. He wants to be a HC, is public about it, and it would have been tough to re recruit knowing he's gone soon.

He may prefer ND all along and just use LSU offer to negotiate a better one with ND. If he is torn he should at least give LSU a chance to counter.
