Clausen, Tate Heading For The NFL
It wasn't a big surprise that with Charlie Weis getting canned as Notre Dame head coach that two of his loyalest players have both decided to forego their senior seasons at the school. Unfortunately it's two of the Irish's best: Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate.
Both are coming off superb years and it wouldn't surprise me if both are first round picks in the NFL Draft this April. They will both be difficult to replace, no matter who the next coach will be.
And on that subject, Notre Dame officials are expected to talk with both Brian Kelly of Cincinnati and possibly Jim Harbaugh of Stanford about their vacant head coaching job this week.
