Notre Dame leaves two safeties home for Stanford game

When Notre Dame visits Stanford Saturday they will face the Pac 12 North champions without two safeties. Eilat Hardy and Elijah Shumate did not travel with the team for the regular season finale due to a violation of team rules, according to College Football Talk contributor JJ Stankevitz of CSN Chicago.

As noted, the depth concerns for Notre Dame will be somewhat significant against the Cardinal. Look for freshman Max Redfield and sophomore John Turner to take on an increased reserve role for Notre Dame. Fortunately for the Irish, Stanford’s passing offense is not the most lethal. Stanford ranks eighth in the Pac 12 in passing offense with Kevin Hogan completing 60.6 percent of his passes for 2,057 yards, 18 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.

This is not the first time Hardy has been left home when Notre Dame hits the road. Earlier this season Hardy was left home for a road game at Purdue.

    It’s final exam time…..wonder if they pulled an “Everett Golson”. That’s not as bad as a “Prince Shembo”! I don’t know how that scum bag looks himself in the mirror.

    Gamecocker, I agree that Shembo has had too many issues and not enough punishment. I hope he fails in the NFL. But Golson had a correctable issue which was handled as if he were a regular student, which wouldn’t happen at all major programs (SEC, Ohio St, etc.). ND puts academics first.

    Fair comment. Golson deserves a second chance at obtaining that prestigious ND degree. It is a fine academic institution with a solid rank and file student body. Glad we agree though on Prince Shembo…..a low-life if ever there was one.
