When Matt Carufel transferred from Notre Dame last year, he didn’t always have the nicest things to say about the Irish or Charlie Weis. It seems he just didn’t feel he fit in at Notre Dame. Never mind that his transfer coincided with the exact timing of him losing his starting spot to Eric Olsen. Nah, that could never have have anything to do with it right?
Well, after sitting out last year, Carufel is getting ready to play for Minnesota this year and he is still talking about Notre Dame and the coaching staff.
Notre Dame started 1-9 in 2007, but Carufel said his decision to leave school had nothing to do with wins and losses. He was homesick when he lost his starting job after the first three games last year.
“I didn’t like it from the get-go,” said Carufel, who left Notre Dame last October. “I missed my home and parents. I missed Minnesota, but I also wanted to have coaches that I felt cared about me and my situation. It wasn’t the right place for me, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t right for someone else.”
Right, so he didn’t like it from the get-go, but decided to come back for a second year and then left right after losing his starting spot? At least Demetrius Jones was honest about why he left and didn’t take pot shots at the University.
