Notre Dame offensive lineman, Matt Carufel, decided that his boy hood dream of playing football for Notre Dame was actually a real life nightmare and decided to quit in the middle of the season.
He is, at least, the second member of the Irish squad to choose to leave school and run as fast and far as he could from Charlie Weis since the season started.
The other player to do so was Negro QB Demetrius Jones.
The Irish made Jones wait for his release, even going so far as threatening not to release him from his scholarship before finally caving to pressure by concerned media outlets (like this one) to do the right thing.
Carufel, a white lineman, was granted his release without incident and with no problem.
Ty Willingham could not be reached for comment.
