You're Welcome America!

If it seems like we are walking in circles....RELAX!... There's progress ahead!'s just an illusion!

Started the season losing to a Florida team that 
we clearly should have beat...TURNOVERS!

Finished the season losing to a Florida team that
we clearly should have beat.. TURNOVERS!

Wasn't too long ago we had back to back BCS 
appearances (without being connected to an NCAA 
violation or cash...etc) and we were headed in the 
right direction..... Weren't we?

In the heart of the fan...yeah!
To the rational...NO!

The Weis years taught us that you can't win without Defense.

Not at any level!

Now we are turning the corner with ELITE Defensive
talent....we have the BIG BOY'S on both lines 
not just coming in but dominating!...and?

We are missing a BIG puzzle piece!


A quarterback....a playmaker...a leader!...

Now before you crucify Tommy Ree's....and glorify a kid that 
hasn't taken a snap in college as the messiah....and curse Kelly..

A little game of Multiple Choice!...

1. 2871 yards 65.5% completion 20 TD's 14 Picks

2. 2056 yards 56.6% completion 18 TD's 14 Picks

3.4463 yards 63.3% completion 29 TD's 15 Picks

Now the answer...
1. Tommy Rees
2. Denard Robinson
3. Laundry Jones

Coach Kelly made a mistake with the whole "Dayne Crist"
situation, but at the end of the day he
did what he thought was the safe bet....

With that being said...I do hope that Tommy has started
 his last game for NOTRE DAME!

It's time to get Andrew Hendrix reps...and Get Everette Golson
up to speed...and then choose your starter....
and regardless of the first 2 or 3 series STICK WITH HIM!

"Well Florida did it with Leak and Tebow!"

Let's get one thing clear...and this is not a love fest!

TEBOW is a once in a lifetime player!....


You can't make that magic twice...just look at the season after he left...

Did Urban make Tebow...or did Tebow make Urban!

Florida FELL apart without Tebow...still had Urban!

Now a lot of you are upset...and rightfully so...

But you better relax and give the man a chance to do his job...

Because the future?...Well is not...

It's gonna be tough!....but you know what?


 You wanna be a big a big boy schedule!...
This is what a lot of teams base their entire program around 
avoiding, by saying...

"We're keeping the money in the state!" 
"It's good exposure to play Citadel and get into the south!"

Excuses...lead to being soft...lead to SEC type of beatings!

 Navy (Dublin, Ireland) ****Clearly winnable!

 PURDUE *****Clearly winnable (unless you choke vs them like A LOT of teams)

 at Michigan State ******Tough D...Grad Cousins and most playmakers on O

MICHIGAN  ******Gonna be a dog fight...will this be the season we don't hand the game to them?

 Open Date

 MIAMI (Soldier Field, Chicago) *****Winnable....New QB.... Turmoil form top to bottom

 STANFORD ****About to return to the Stanford of old...their "Luck" has run it's course

 BYU ***Clearly winnable

 at Oklahoma *****DOG FIGHT!.... number 1 toughest game of the year...roll in 7-0 and expect Game Day!

 PITTSBURGH ******Clearly Winnable

at Boston College ******Clearly Winnable

 WAKE FOREST  ******Clearly Winnable

at USC *****The Conclusion!....Let's ruin USC's year!.... Winnable but a Dog fight!

This Ship is headed in the right direction...not to say 
the water won't be rough...but manageable!

We return a TON of elite playmakers....

We have our stable of running backs...with our 
1000 yard rusher returning...

Eifert will be back...with 2nd string TE's better 
than 99% of your starters elsewhere!

We will have one of the best D lines in the country...Working
off of what will for sure be a dominate O line!

With LB's behind them that react and hit like trucks!

Slaughter will become the commander of the secondary...and 
make no mistake...SPEED at the corners!

You can fix experience with can't fix speed
with experience!...

So at the end of the day....
Recruiting on both sides of the ball better...
Developing talent better...
Modernizing the program...
and Kelly is the reason!

We just need to know....who's gonna be 


Gonna be one HELL of a 2012!

Happy New Year and GOD BLESS!

Twas the night before Christmas....GO IRISH!

Twas the Night before Christmas and all through the crib...
The Irish fans were drooling....we might need a bib!

The Recruits were committed to Kelly with care..
While visions of Championships were soon to be there...

When across the TV came such a clatter...
I shot to the web, to see what was the matter...

Our bowl vs FSU, was the topic of the day...
Lou Holtz said "a win"...and "a loss" said Mark May...

We stand in a quandary a no win situation...
Beat the Seminoles...and their program?.. 
Is in desperation!

But have the Irish lose?...A win we both need...
All ESPN will Florida had too much speed!..

So as I watched the moon on the breast of 
new-fallen snow..
It gave clarity to the direction the IRISH must go!

A new face, some fresh add to the mix...

A Elf with some attitude...named

More rapid than eagles his teammates they came, 
 He'd audible and yell and call them by name...

"Now, Wood! now, Tyler! now,Floyd and Riddick!

On, Toma! On Manti! On,Tuitt and Lynch!

On Stephon and Ethan...with Big Nix, as mad as the Grinch!

To the top of the rankings was all they desire...
With determination of rock, and fists made of fire!

The future was bright...the cupboards no longer bare...
With reinforcements like Greenberry and Shepard
on their way there!

To all the Irish Family say thanks to Saint Nick...

Coach Kelly has it under control...
Swarbrick made the right pick...

With the BCS on our hearts and talent to fight...

Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Merry Christmas and God Bless!

The Chips are about to start falling!.... GO IRISH!

Get ready boys and girls of all ages!...
Brian Kelly is about to flow through with another KILLA finish 
to this years recruiting class!..

Gonna be fun!...
First things first....
He's BACK!...
Feel Free to click on this link above...
Ya see back in August BEFORE the season started I said:
" I will not go into detail about how I know this...but expect to see this guy in Ireland to play NAVY!...."
And all the little bloggers....chatroom tough guys
Obsessive nerd weirdos...all WENT CRAZY...

This season was an interesting one...At times I felt like we were turning the corner
only go flying off the cliff the next week!

Coach Kelly is taking on quite the task...
He's trying to do it ethically in an unethical time...

Around every corner there's another salesman!
Another sales pitch.... shinny gold promises
 that don't include a 4 year 
scholarship, but a one year SEC tryout!

Coaches covering things up...while $500 handshakes get passed out like 
free baseballs at Wrigley!
Coaches telling kid's..
"You should come here!...You can't fail...even if you 
you don't even try to will!"

We wonder why? 
Because that's what the landscape has become...
I don't care if you can read or write...can ya run a 4.4?

But it's about to change!....
Coach Kelly is bringing EDUCATION back...
He's bringing in a new generation of Fighting Irish...
Guy's who hit like this....

But when they talk, sound like this...

They exist...but some of them need convinced..



Playing football and after!

Times are changing...
Kids are getting smarter and smarter...
They are doing their research...
And they are thinking about the future!

Your still gonna have your dipsh@ts here and there..

Who will stay in whatever town they played in, happy making forty
 five grand a year to coach O line for spoiled rich kids..
Or jump on the radio stoking your over rated local team...
Or sell Hondas talking about the last CO-Championship they shared!

It's about doing it right...It's about turning 
left, when everybody else is turning right...

It's about setting a standard...a line in the sand!

A line you DO NOT CROSS!

Notre Dame is about what's right in college football...

And make no mistake...
