Hopefully DD is never yanked after a terrible performance at Cincy. He, along with the Sharpley and Clausen played poorly vs. G.T. Clausen was yanked 2-3 times as was Sharpley during ND's debacle last year. DD would have had several more opportunites to prove himself if he would have stayed at ND.

I'm sure if the spread, which Weis packaged for Jones and spent a month working on, would have been effective vs. G.T would have been kept along with Jones. Sounds very childish on his part to say Weis didn't want him to start and hand-picked Clausen. If Clausen was healthy enough to play vs. GT, which he did, he was healthy enough to start, yet Jones still did. Doesn't sound like a hand-picked starter to me?
