Pinkett: ‘a few bad citizens... criminals’ could do Irish some good
Well, this is one way to stir the pot.
Since Lou Holtz left as Notre Dame’s head coach following the 1996 season, the storied Irish football program has compiled a record of 107-78. A winning percentage of .578 has, obviously, not sat well with most fans, alumni and former players of the school.
Thankfully for them, one of those former players has offered up some “helpful” advice in turning around the Irish.
During an appearance on the McNeil and Spiegel Show Wednesday, ex-Irish All-American running back and current Irish radio analyst Allen Pinkett suggested that a few bad apples -- and a couple of criminals -- could be just what the doctor ordered for Notre Dame.
Pinkett, an Irish radio analyst for over a decade, went on to state that, as far as the criminal angle of his thesis, he doesn’t “want any mass murders or rapists” on the Irish, which is likely a solid strategy for any football program. Instead, Pinkett said...
Given the opportunity to back down, Pinkett reiterated his strategy for returning the Irish to its glory days.
It’s unclear how these comments will impact Pinkett’s working relationship with the school.
