Pat Kuntz Is Leaving...For Now

After weeks of rumors, it finally has come out in the open. Pat Kuntz is leaving ND for personal reasons. Here is the AP story. I will have my reaction on this in a post tomorrow.

Associated Press - January 17, 2008 5:24 PM ETSOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame starting nose tackle Pat Kuntz is not enrolled in school for the spring semester. He says he dropped out for "personal reasons."The 6-foot-3, 285-pound junior from Indianapolis won't elaborate on why he's not at school. And the university can't comment because of privacy laws.Kuntz says he plans to return to Notre Dame, possibly as early as this summer, and hopes to play for the Irish this fall.Kuntz started 10 games as the Irish went 3-9 last season, but missed the final two games with injuries. He tore ligaments in his left knee against Air Force and found out a back injury from the previous game against Navy was a cracked bone in his spine.

Its going to be hard losing Kuntz, Im hoping he will back in the fall. Ian Williams will very likely be the starting NT.
