A clever fan from Detroit (hmmm, wonder what his favorite team is) posed the following question to Darius Flemming today during an ESPN.com chat today – “How does Notre Dame sell Independent v. Conference? Once ND loses a few games, they have nothing to play for – i.e. a conference title. ”

Flemming’s answer?

“That’s a good point, but I chose Notre Dame because the teams that they play are very competitive. Most of the programs they play are very good. I’m looking more for a national championship than a conference championship.”

The entire transcript had a few gems from Flemming.  Here are a few other highlights, but the entire transcript is worth a read.

On Corwin Brown as a recruiter:

“Me and him talked about more than just football. We had a strong relationship. They always say that you need a strong relationship with your position coach. Plus he’s from Chicago. “ 

On if he will enroll early

“I have thought about it, but I think it will be hard for me to do that. I’m not even sure if it’s possible for me to do. I’ll look into it. “

On Corwin Brown as a coach

“I love his energy. He’s like he’s on the field playing himself. That’s what a lot of players like about him. We like his style. We’re looking forward to playing with him. He’s a friend in person, but a coach on the field. “ 

I think Darius is going to fit in very well in Notre Dame’s new defense…
