Gotta say, I'm really glad Kelly is openly blasting the refs.

This was one of the worst screw jobs in a long long time.

Hopefully this will be a galvanizing event where they regroup and go out and play with a vengeance for the rest of the season. We win out and a couple chips land our way and we are right back in it ready to sneak in the back door SEC style.

It proves he is fully part ND & not just a mercenary.....

..a mercenary worried only about his own future in the NFL or elsewhere wouldn't make these comments. He will take a lot of heat from the outside (particularly ESPN which has a different narrative that it wants to present).

Kelly loves this team & cares personally about his players & it shows here. A lot of ND fans from You Know Where have unfairly and incorrectly criticized him for being a mercenary who isn't really part of ND. After all, if he were would he ever suggest Field Turf? Would he ever talk about a Jumbotron? Would he change the gameday rituals like he has? And most of all, would he ever spurn the sacred and almighty Chicago Alumni Rockne Dinner if he were actually a true ND coach to the core?

Answers: yes, yes, yes, and yes.

I wish Swarbrick would do the same. That would be taking it a notch higher.

This loss demoralized Kelly and derailed the greatest comeback in football history

I sense that Kelly finds it hard to motivate himself and the team after this ACC fraud which derailed a great comeback victory

This is where Holtz was a master. Just wish it wasn't Navy with their option.

It's a devastating way to lose. It's probably good we don't play until Nov. 1st. The whole team

needs some time to deal with how they got fucked over on that play, especially since it's a pretty young and inexperienced group.

Is Kelly able to request we never have Pat Ryan ref in our games again?

Yes, he can certainly request that and he if he does so publicly and his request is refused...

then every call the guy makes in an ND game will be scrutinized beyond belief.

Still not quite good enough because he can make calls in our favor when we are blowing out people.
