Suspended for the first games of the season for an undisclosed violation of team policy, Oklahoma defensive lineman Stacy McGee should be making his 2012 debut this Saturday against No. 5 Notre Dame.

Bob Stoops announced Monday that McGee, who has been serving on the scout team, has been reinstated to the team and is prepared to take the field against the Irish.

McGee started 17 games over the past three seasons, including three last year and 11 in 2010.

    …and he’s ready to pounce!

    Of course he is going to be reinstated. They wouldn’t have him sitting on the bench when they need him for ND. Forget rules when you have a big game!

    Go Irish!!

    @ttalarico….If he were going to be reinstated when he was “needed”, I think the Kansas State game would have been a more opportune time. For morons like you, “any” game he would be reinstated would be because he was “needed”. I guess Gholstan’s concussion is better because OU is next on the schedule, huh?
    @Ben K….McGee is a d-lineman and not a defensive back.

    Well of course he is returning. Being suspended means very little at Oklahoma. It just means you are in the doghouse til needed.

    Yawwwwwnnnnnnnnn. Unless he can block for Landry Jones this means little to nothing.

    ND’s best advantage is their d-linemen are far superior to anything OK has faced, when Landry is pressured he becomes a different player …
    Tuitt, Nix, Kapron Lewis-Moore, Sheldon Day … and company are the key if the Irish win.

    If somehow OK pass protects well it will be a long day for ND’s secondary.

    IMO ND’s defense will win this game as ND’s offense will be mediocre but do just enough with the field position and turnovers that the defense gets them.

    Silent night in Norman.

    I didn’t hear no complaints when Floyd started last year bring on the best

    Wow Irish fans all of the sudden appear back on message boards! Unbelievable just wait until Saturday it will be a different story the only reason y’all have anything this year is because y’all have only played big 10 teams! Everybody’s defense looks good against those guys! Just being real!

    I’m sure anyone would defend their program, so insert your eye roll “here.” Bob Stoops, LIKE MOST COACHES take suspensions extremely seriously. With a great program comes high visibility. He does the right thing, even when it costs us games.

    I would like to apologize to the Sooner nation. My comment about “ignoring the rules” was unwarranted. I guess I was thinking of the Florida schools when I said that! :)

    From what I can see, Coach Stoops runs a clean program and didn’t deserve the comment. As a ND fan, when we play the Sooners on Saturday, we want to play their best and wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Go Irish!

    Our sentiments exactly! We’re pumped to have you all to Norman…it’s gonna be a helluva game, sir! 😉

    I can’t wait for this game. This will show if ND is truly back

    I don’t know if you’re an ND fan or not but it really strikes me funny that ND is 7-0 and has beaten 3 ranked teams and people are still wondering if we’re “back”!

    For many ND fans and ND haters, they won’t be back until they win a national championship. I can’t wait for this game either and I think ND has what it takes to beat OK at home if the offense plays like I think they are capable of. However, it they don’t win, does that mean they are not “back”. I don’t think so. They would just have gotten beat by an excellent team in their own stadium.

    No matter what happens the next 5 games, ND has a season that either may be the best or at the very least they will be on the way to consistent excellence for the program in the years to come.

    Go Irish! Beat OK!!

    Let’s not overstate ND’s wins against 3 ranked teams. MSU was ranked when ND played them- they are now 4-4.

    Michigan, who is still ranked has had their wins come against teams with a collective record of 13-23. Pick their marquee win: against 4-4 MSU or 4-3 Air Force.

    Stanford was a good win, even though it took a last minute stand on a controversial play for the win.

    That’s why people still have questions.
