At least he has a Super Bowl ring. How many other Willingham recruits are still out there?


His goal prior to going to ND was to become President...

one day.

I believe he is a Muslim....felt very comfortable at ND and was well integrated into the South Bend Muslim community.

I'd like to see him go back to Minnesota and get involved in politics. It would be nice to see if Alan Page could take him under his wing and mentor him in Minnesota politics. Minnesota has traditionally been a progressive state, which would seem to be a good environment for Ryan Harris to feel welcomed, based upon today's varied attitudes.


Remember Rep. Ellison

is from MN & Muslim. I expect a connection there. God bless him!


Why would he debase himself? *

on the squad. I think (hope) Righetti is going to get him to another level this year. So much potential....I love the way he fit right into their team atmosphere. He and Pence are fun to watch when they are happily losing their collective minds....


I'll take "Great financial decisions" for $128M, Alex. *

ACB = Joe 'Ducky' Medwick
by olson  (2017-03-05 15:32:46)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Rockne had HS HB sensation Joe Medwick, Carteret NJ all lined up to be a member of Rockne's 1930 ND Frosh recruiting class. Rock had even set up a job for the HS star.

Medwick, who claimed it was his dream to play football for Notre Dame, wanted to follow his old HS teammate Ron Armour (ND Frosh '28) to South Bend.

But 'Ducky' Medwick went for the money & signed a contract with the St Louis Cardinals (ACB) instead of reporting to ND- on his way to a triple crown & MLB HOF career


He was apparently quite the character

After his playing career, he had an audience with Pope Pius XII. When asked what he did for a living, he allegedly said "Your holiness, I too was once a Cardinal."


Anyone with the nickname "Ducky-wucky" usually is

But that was a team of characters, the "Gashouse Gang" also featuring the likes of Dizzy Dean and Pepper Martin.

See below for an entertaining write up on Medwick in the 7th game of the 1934 World Series.

Seems just like yesterday I remember Quinn hitting him for the last send TD to beat UCLA.


Great site, thanks. *
