Jones Talks About Transfer

Eric Hansen of the South Bend Tribune did a great job in tracking down the elusive Demetrius Jones and getting the sophomore quarterback's take on his decision to transfer to Northern Illinois. Jones admitted he should have handled the departure better, but he felt it was in his best interests to move on. He and coach Charlie Weis have yet to talk, and they have to before he can get his official release and be able to talk to Northern Illinois coaches. Jones has enrolled at the school and starts classes today.

As far as the Irish, Weis canceled his weekly Sunday press conference to focus on his return to training camp mode -- a return to fundamentals as it was the first few days of training camp. He's also canceled his weekly Tuesday press conference and won't be available to discuss Saturday's Michigan State game until Thursday. Perhaps by then he'll have a better indication on whether this approach, and yes it borders on desperation, will work. In fact, it had better if Notre Dame is to salvage this season and avoid what could be the worst season in school history.
