Brian Kelly Loves the ‘Boring’ 2016 Notre Dame Class

Brian Kelly Contract Extension

Notre Dame didn’t have much drama on National Signing Day 2016 in terms of late minute defections or decommitments.  No Chris Little, Greg Little, Lorenzo Booker, or Deontay Greenbery situations like Greg talked about in his post over the weekend.  At the same time, Notre Dame didn’t land the 5-star fish they were hoping to reel in either.  Still, a Signing Day devoid of being Bookered or Leaked was a nice change. Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly opens up about the lack of drama behind Notre Dame’s recruiting process this year in this video from Sports Illustrated.

Notre Dame – Boston College Shamrock Series Highlights


The field and venue were pretty, but the performance of the Fighting Irish was sloppy at best last night.  Still, the Irish won and improved to 10-1 to give them their second 10 win season in the last four years with a 19-16 victory over Boston College.  Turnovers, dropped passes, and poor execution turned what could have been an Irish blowout into a too close for comfort squeaker.   Here are all the highlights from last night before we dive into any analysis today.
