Talley To Leave Irish

Junior defensive end Ronald Talley has left the Notre Dame football program and if you’re looking for insight from coach Charlie Weis, you’ll have to wait until next week.

He’s unavailable for comment until then.

Talley started four of Notre Dame’s six games while splitting time with senior Chris Frome. He had 11 tackles and a fumble recovery.

Meanwhile, Weis was available earlier in the week to reflect on a variety of topics, including whether he would run up the score to improve Notre Dame’s ranking.

“It’s not only wrong, it’s disrespectful,” he said. “I’m always going to think that way. There are Notre Dame fans we say, ‘I wish he’d score another two touchdowns.’ My wife and son want me to do the same thing.”

The Irish are ranked No. 8 and No. 9 in the polls. They need to get into the top two by the end of the regular season to make the national championship game.
