Irish tradition

The most “just sayin'” tweet you’ll see today.

To be fair, Notre Dame no longer operates with a decided schematic advantage on offense these days.

    I’m hoping they keep Kelly. I am trying to get tickets to next years game in South Bend and want Kelly on the sidelines. I want to watch his head explode when Eason lights up his defense.


  2. He’s running out of people to fire.

    Irish Tradition sounds like the name of a knock off whisky.

    It’s going to be interesting to see who they go get after Kelly. I think they wait a year though…it would be too much on the ND elitist mindset to watch Texas AND LSU hire hotter candidates in the same cycle.

    I hope they jettison Kelly and go for Les Miles.

    Wasn’t Weiss actually getting paid more by ND than Kelly as of just a year ago or something like that?

    Les Miles would be an ordinary coach had he not stepped into a Saban built team. He also got to play for a National Championship with 2 losses which seldom happens.

      Correct, Purdue sounds like a good fit for him to me.

      Les’s best move was to hire Chavis as DC, and just leaving Chavis alone to do the job. His worst move was Cameron as OC, and keeping him.

      Seems to me success comes down more and more to the assistants a HC hires. Hate to say it, but Corch has had some really good assistants – and it’s paid off handsomely.

      Imagine if Kirby had been able to keep Pruitt as DC and land his first choice, Enos, for OC. That would’ve been the makings of a fine staff. One of the things that has me worried most is that we’ll be bringing back our current staff as-is for 2017.

        I’m betting there will be some staff changes for 2017 in Athens.

        Would certainly have been better to keep Pruitt than if he had landed his first choice at DC and brought Boom in. But Pruitt would have continued to be a disruptive, organizational disaster, I don’t think KS would want to deal with that along with everything else he was facing coming in. Pruitt could recruit, and he was pretty good as both a schemer and tactician, but a divisive personality when you are into team building.

    Kelly has bigger forehead veins.


  8. It’s the Field Turf replacing the 5 inch long natural grass they used to slow teams down at home.

    I don’t think Kelly is a great coach or anything, but that’s some fabulous cherry picking. Weis went 3-9, 7-6 and 6-6 in his final three years. Kelly was 10-3 just last year. If they want to fire him, that’s fine, but he’s not Charlie Weis.

      How is picking the last 29 games “cherry picking”?


      • Biggus Rickus

        Why did he pick the last 29 games? Could it possibly have to do with the fact that it ignores a 1-7 stretch for Weis and begins at the 4-game losing streak Kelly had to end the season in 2014 (before which they were 7-1)? Do you know what cherry picking means?
