As Notre Dame looks forward to playing Duke the week before Thanksgiving for their probable first win, they look for new and exciting ways to turn off blue chippers from considering making their way to the horrible weather of South Bend. Irish QB Demetrius Jones wants to transfer to Northern Illinois and told reporters he enrolled there last week, but Notre Dame isn't releasing him from his scholarship. They apparently aren't happy with the way it transpired; he practiced with the Irish the day after he enrolled at Northern Illinois without telling coaches his plans. The fallout is that he'll probably have to pay his way this year. On the bright side, Charlie Weis is locked up for a decade and only 58 days until they play Duke!
