    All winning teams are goal-oriented. Teams like these win consistently because everyone connected with them concentrates on specific objectives. They go about their business with blinders on; nothing will distract themfrom achieving their aims.

    This kid has regressed to the point that I’d be surprised if he saw the field again. He was replaced at PR after last year’s indecision at the position so I wonder if that fear of losing his KR position, too; affected him this season b/c he looked extremely tentaive. He had a handful of kicks that he easily could’ve brought out for a return but opted to play it safe. Then, if he did bring it out; he could never make that first man miss and break off a long one like he did his first two seasons. I predict we see Michael Young returning kicks next year.

    I'm not a fan of his at KR. His skill set is better served at PR than KR, but because of what's going on between his ears they kept him at KR. He doesn't have the long speed you covet, unfortunately.

    Unless you stuff Chris Finke in a closet next year and hide him from this over-trusting staff, I don't see a big role for him next year either.
    I treasure my remark to a grandson who asked, "Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?" "No", I answered, "But I served in a company of heroes".

    Didn’t he have more KR TD than PR TD? Not saying that you’re wrong but the past two years, there was always that chance he could break one. That should never be counted in in ST. First rule is like the Hippocratic Oath...”Do No Harm”.

    Notre Dame receiver/returner C.J. Sanders, a former Brentwood Academy standout, is considering a transfer to Vanderbilt, a source close to the situation said.
    According to multiple reports, Sanders plans to transfer in May after graduating from Notre Dame. As a graduate transfer, he would be eligible to play immediately. He has not named the schools he is considering, but a source confirmed that Vanderbilt is among his possible destinations.
    Sanders has obvious ties to Nashville and Vanderbilt. His father, former Titans receiver Chris Sanders, is on the football staff at Montgomery Bell Academy. And his stepfather, former NFL player Corey Harris, was an All-SEC player at Vanderbilt.

    Vanderbilt plays at Notre Dame in a week three game on Sept. 15.
    C.J. Sanders, a 5-foot-8, 181-pound speedster, would supply a burst to Vanderbilt’s return game and offense. At Notre Dame, he was dynamic on special teams, returning three kicks and one punt for touchdowns in his career.

    As a receiver, he had 24 catches for 293 yards and two TDs in 2016. But his role in the Irish offense diminished in 2017, when he posted only one catch.

    C.J. Sanders played three seasons at Brentwood Academy as a standout play-maker on offense, defense and special teams before moving to Sherman Oaks, Calif., to play at Notre Dame High School for his senior season. He also won state track titles in the 100 meters and 200 meters at Brentwood Academy.
    During his Dec. 20 signing day press conference, Vanderbilt coach Derek Masonrepeatedly said graduate transfers would be in the Commodores' January recruiting efforts, though he never named a targeted position.

    Oregon transfer defensive lineman Rutger Reitmaier, a former Lipscomb Academy standout, signed with Vanderbilt in December. Illinois transfer running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn, a former Pearl-Cohn standout, and Ohio State transfer receiver Alex Stumpcame to the Commodores before last season.
    All three transfers will be eligible to play in the 2018 season.
    C.J. Sanders also has nine movie and TV show acting credits, according to his Notre Dame bio page. He played a young Ray Charles in the movie “Ray” and appeared in TV shows “Cold Case,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Judging Amy.”
