Notre Dame Head Coach Brian Kelly’s Accountability Doesn't Add Up

Let’s get one thing straight: Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly is unquestionably the best coach the Fighting Irish have had since legend Lou Holtz roamed the sidelines years ago.  It’s an objective, undeniable fact.  But considering the combined winning percentage (.576) of Bob Davie, Tyrone Willingham and Charlie Weis, the response to that fact […]

Notre Dame Head Coach Brian Kelly Faces Tough Questions

Notre Dame Football is Back

After some internal debate, I have decided to take a different approach to Notre Dame’s recent contest against Florida State.  Rather than covering the material as a detached observer I am instead going to write as the lifelong Notre Dame fan that I am and include the emotion that comes as a result.
