Talk about a major story!.......This is definitely a WTF moment!....You don’t interview like this unless a tentative deal is reached….

What a slap in the face to Notre Dame….Don’t get me wrong, I have no love for the Irish, but this is pretty low…....

In essence, it appears that Nick Saban has beaten Brian Kelly out of college football….he knows he cannot beat Alabama and has taken ND as far as he can go it appears

It just seems like such a big risk. You have one of the premier jobs if not THE premier job in all of CFB, but after 1 season you could be kicked to the curb by an NFL team.

Maybe he’s being run out of South Bend by that embarrassment of a team he put together for a title appearance.  Can’t really blame him, If I was embarrassed like that, could get out of the situation and possibly get a pay raise from it I might.

Once again ND will slip off the face of the earth back into the shadows as a mediocre football program.  Prime picking for and right up Swofford’s and his goonies ally.

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.

After thinking about it, I am pretty sure he is done for the reason that no coach would take a vacation out of the country with National Signing Day less than 30 days away…...The Head Coach would be in homes and on the phone trying to close your recruiting class…..

Put a fork in him…....he is done
