Following Notre Dame’s impressive win over NC State this weekend, Brian Kelly had a pretty fiery message for his team in the Notre Dame locker room. The Irish went toe to two with supposedly one of the best run defenses in all of college football and something indeed gave. 318 rushing yards later, Brian Kelly let his team know how proud he was of them.
We’ve seen a different Brian Kelly this year. He danced around a megaphone in East Lansing. He’s been calm on the sidelines. He’s been getting hugs and Gatorade baths from his players on the sidelines. In fact, outside of his snippy post game exchange following the loss to Georgia, Kelly has been almost a completely different coach than the one we saw the last few years.
Hell, maybe I should pick up yoga too?
Seriously though, it is great to see Kelly and this team not only perform the way they have been, but to watch the total reclamation project that’s gone on with Kelly over the last year it’s just been truly remarkable. Hats off to Kelly yet again. He’s been a different coach and he’s been getting much different results this year.
Here’s to hoping we continue to see both the new and improved Brian Kelly and a continuation of the dominating wins that the Irish have been racking up.
