Yeah, we should push him out of town regardless of his record if he doesn't win a national title. It will be so easy to find a better replacement, after all this is Notre Dame. We could hire Nick Saban, no wait, Bill Belichick, and he'll lead us to 10 straight National Championships. It will be just like when we pushed that hack Holtz out of town, and went on that unprecedented run of success..........
Why do some of you have your feelings hurt so bad? I understand the last 25 years have made ND fans the most insecure and cynical fanbase of all time but good lord. We just won 12 games, we played in a BCS championship. Is it enough? No, we need the ultimate prize, I agree, but the sky is not falling. The program is in the best shape its been in the last twenty years. Kelly hasn't ruined anything, let it play out, please.
I really think you must have some variation of a bi-polar complex. On many
days, we get from you well reasoned, sane, even "right-on" types of posts,
then comes one like the above. Who in their right mind fires a coach that
just went 12-0, went to the national championship, has and is recruiting at
an all-time high and has reinvorated the program beyond anything we have
seen since 1996. I have expressed on many threads that I do not think Kelly's
approach here is or was the correct one but you don't summarily fire the guy.
"Nothing else but a championship will suffice" ---a clarion call for greatness
that has been achieved only 4 times in a 62 year period under the tutelege of
the likes of Paraseghian, Holtz, Devine. That's a six percent success rate earned
by the guys with statues. Its damned difficult to win a national championship,
let alone a national championship at Notre Dame.
Now, is that the standard---yes. Has Kelly said that's the standard--yes.
Does he seem that he's on the road to achieving that--yes. So, hold your
You are ridiculous!
Excellent post Hemy, spot on on all counts.

Can you say devolution?
who interviews for another job after saying leaving after this
season is not an option?
Every single coach that has ever changed jobs.
Untrue. There is nothing routine about the way BK has been acting, don't twist it around. I hope he comes to his senses quickly, and that there is a semi-noble reason for this, but
I don't remember BK saying GVS, CMU, or UC were his dream job. LOTS of coaches have given more hints and for many the writing is on the wall months before their eventual departure.
no prob, i just like to stay on topic.
CITY OF CHAMPYINZ!!!!!!
Doug Marrone said Syracuse was his dream job and this week the Buffalo Bills were his dream job. Maybe Kelly has always dreamed of coaching in the NFL. Also, the remarks I read going into the Alabama game were "I don't know what interest is out there and won't know until after the season" and "I never take anything off of the table". I'm not saying I think he'll leave but he never promised Nick Saban/Dolphins style to stay.
Wait and see. So far we've lost one kid out of this mess and that's it but it does bother me that Butler tweeted Anzalone "you couldn't have waited for a decision like the rest of us"? If Kelly leaves he will have some company. All we can do is wait.

You seriously are an angry and crazy person.
How do I get rid of other people that I think are clowns?

Absolutely ridiculous thinking. Should Oregon also fire Chip Kelly. Based on your "logic", Should all NCAA football teams fire all of their assistant coaches who interview for jobs at higher levels or greater pay scales?
We're al just dust in the wind.
