I don't think BK was making excuses. Alex asked him this BEFORE the game. I think BK was just being candid for once, instead of his usual "coach speak".
He made some obvious errors last week. That much is true. Having said that, take that fumble away and we are in that game, and who knows how this turns out.
I don't expect perfection. I know mistakes will happen, by both coaches and players. I can live with that.
I would love to hear BK's true evaluation of this team, right now. Stop with the coach speak. I want him to give out his mid-season report and give us his true feelings of where we are, and HOW we are going to get better....and the answer better not be in 2 more seasons....
LET'S GET IT ON!!!!!
Perhaps the team is not where Kelly wants it tob with respect to his scheme, but, to perform against USC (which is in a down year) the way ND did on Saturday is pathetic. There is too much talent at ND right now. I read everyone's emails leading up to the game about how our O-line manhandled their D-line last year, how ND's D-line is much improved, etc...; not many people on this board thought ND would lose to USC at home. USC cannot even play in the post season and that did not stop them from pounding ND on Saturday night. USC did not need to be motivate dby a post season BCS game. ND should have beat USC on Saturday -- no excuses! If you are looking to assign fault/blame, then it should go to the TEAM as many were involved in Saturday's loss.
