#NotreDame senior LB Carlo Calabrese & junior QB Tommy Rees have both been suspended for the opening game of the season by Brian Kelly.Brian Hardin TOMMY REES WON'T START AGAINST NAVY!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSNDtex I mean, uh, such a shame he had to get punished.NDtex Neither Calabrese nor Rees will travel with Notre Dame's FB team to Ireland where the Fighting Irish open the season vs. Navy on Sept. 1.Brian Hardin #NotreDame senior LB Carlo Calabrese & junior QB Tommy Rees have both been suspended for the opening game of the season by Brian Kelly!!!Andrew Baeckstrom Missing out on the Dublin trip is a double whammySteve G Rees suspended for the first game of the year. It is Golson's time. Lets go. #HereCometheIrish #GolsonforNDquarterback2012Kevin Burke @HLS_NDtex WHAT WHAT HUH HOW DO YOU KNOW HTISJ Tommy Rees will NOT be Notre Dame's staring quarterback against Navy according to Brian Kelly. HENDRIX V GOLSON. IT'S ON!Andrew Baeckstrom I wonder if Carlo's people will get BK now :-/Steve G I will not ask JS about this at all RT @DrySpark @HLS_NDtex wow - right before your hangout too...line up the questionsNDtex Navy's not going to be able to triple team Eiffert now.GB JUMANJI RT @ChiTribHamilton: #NotreDame suspends QB Tommy Rees and LB Carlo Calabrese for the season opener. Neither with travel to Dublin.Ty Hildenbrandt BK's statement basically used the "great power, great responsibility" Spiderman line.NDtex The high pitched noise we are all hearing is the sound of pure joy emanating from @tyhildenbrandtSteve G Rees and Carlo get suspended, yet Floyd didn't miss a game. #ndfbHarry Adams "I can't dodge a DUI in Ireland? NUTS." RT @schadjoe: ND announces QB Tommy Rees suspended from opener in Dublin IrelandAndy Hutchins That sound you hear is 10 million ND fans fist-pumping in their cubicle RT @schadjoe: ND announces QB Tommy Rees suspended from opener.Adam Kramer Feel so much better about the Navy game, you guys.NDtex Goldrix under center vs Navy!One Foot Down @rakesofmallow timing of incidents is probably one of the bigger reasons whySteve G YAISSSSSSSSSSS MT @NDHardin #NotreDame junior QB Tommy Rees has been suspended for the opening game of the season by Brian Kelly.Chest Rockwell If Rees can only "attempt to climb the depth chart" after the suspension, I'm hoping that means he is slated behind a redshirted Kiel.NDtex BY GOD KELLY YOU'VE DONE IT AGAIN.Chest Rockwell Hen... Drix... Hen... Drix... Hen. Drix. Hen. Drix. Hendrix. Hendrix. Hendrix. HENDRIX. HENDRIX! HENDRIXHENDRIXHENDRIX clapclapclapclapNina Hendrix will be opening game starter. :/D Yeah, that's really the only legit reasoning I can see. RT @PootND timing of incidents is probably one of the bigger reasons whyChris W. Tommy Rees not the starter at least for Navy wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooNDEddieMac This is #NotreDame scoreboard, like it or not: Michael Floyd DUI = zero games missed. Carlo Calabrese yells at a cop = misses season opener.Brian Hamilton Now I wish Kelly just suspended Floyd for USF so we don't have to deal with the commuters ************* G So happy right now. RISE OF GOLSONNDEddieMac I am 85% less likely to have my passport revoked for rioting in Ireland now. Thanks, ND!Nina RT @HLS_Twibby Never before has a fan base been so excited that their starting QB is suspended.NDtex One former starter once told me he took three snaps during a #NotreDame spring scrimmage. Missing spring ball? It's a gift to veterans.Brian Hamilton Not so fast. ND's travel roster for opener includes a one "Carl O'Calabrese." We're not stupid, Brian Kelly.Jesse For those asking about my reaction to Rees news: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVlfyYWfX8I&feature=player_detailpage#t=4sTy Hildenbrandt If Notre Dame ever wins a national title, I now have a good template of what the exultant texts/emails/tweets will look like.Chris W. Recent #NDFB announcement is the latest to prove the axiom: "most popular guy on campus is the backup QB"Garrett Kuk Actual footage from Notre Dame's campus as the Tommy Rees suspension was announced. http://youtu.be/SPlQpGeTbIEAdam Kramer Commuter is upset with ND. Shocker. ND is in a perpetual catch-22 with some people. Just a fact of sports life.NDtex I'll always thank Rees for helping us beat USC. I'll curse his name when I die 10 yrs earlier than I should due to the stress he caused meSteve G still laughing @NDEddieMac's "Rise of the Golson" tweet.Jesse @PootND I guess he did fumble and throw int at the right time plus he did hand off to Hughes on last drive I heard him yell drop it to Ron Jsteve neuman Rees suspended the first game of the season. Well, I know we will win at least one game this season.Miguel #NotreDame suspends Tommy Rees for the season opener. There's that wide open door, Everett Golson.Jake Brown @taxbastard he did solid work on the two TD drives. Yes that game was closer than it should have been but we still won itSteve G ND students should extend house party/gamewatch invites to Rees during the Navy game. you know, just to help out.Jesse @tricerapops Just don't ask him to toss you a beer #interceptedNDEddieMac @TheSubwayDomer the angle is start anyone else at QB for Navy & if they fail miserably/we lose.... Tipsy Tommy can come back against PurdontHead & Shoulderpads
