Say it isn’t so: Torn ACL shelves Bon Jovi’s son at Notre Dame

He was not shot through the heart, but Notre Dame walk-on cornerback Jesse Bongiovi suffered a torn ACL and will be out for the 2014 season, according to head coach Brian Kelly. Bongiovi is the son of rock legend Jon Bon Jovi. The news was reported by Matt Fortuna of ESPN.com via Twitter.

The sophomore should be able to use a redshirt year for 2014 and will keep the faith as he aims to return in 2015 for the Fighting Irish. So what about now? The loss of Bongiovi doesn’t mean the Irish will have to be starting all over because he figured to be down on the depth chart anyway.

Now raise your hands if you know how many Bon Jovi references I snuck into this story.

    He was living on a prayer of seeing any playing time.

    I count six
    -Say It Isn’t So
    -Shot Through the Heart
    -Keep the Faith
    -What About Now
    -Starting All Over (Again)
    -Raise Your Hands

    Well he was a walk-on, so he was pretty much living on a prayer, anyhow. I know he’s down on his luck and wants to hold on to what he’s got, but if this doesn’t work out, maybe he can get a job on the docks?

    But then I’m not an Irish fan, so it doesn’t make a difference if he makes it or not. These five things I swear to you.

    The only thing that sucks more than Bon Jovi is Notre Dame.

    However, Jon Bovi should be ready to compete at the other corner.

    Yeah, except I bet she could cover a wideout better than this stiff.

    @derek:

    Dude, he’s a walk on that likely had zero major D1 offers. Find something else to criticize to overcome your inferiority complex.
