Besides Holtz, I suppose that Brian Kelly would be more successful than Rockne, Leahy, and Ara as well since they ran old-fashioned offenses that would not be competitive in "today's game".

Don't worry about schedules. Clemson and Ohio St are on the horizon in 2020 and 2022 so ND will make the CFP easily after Kelly crushes them...

You can have your Brian "my job is not to motivate the team" Kelly.

I would take Lou "Save Jimmy Johnson for me" Holtz in a heartbeat.

I also think that ND can still win a NC. It will take an elite coach but perhaps other than Devine, it has always taken an elite coach to win a NC at ND.

Is ND that far away? No. If they can...

Other schools seem to wait until after signing day to announce coaching changes though so hopefully there will be no impact.

It did take Dabo a few years to figure things out while he did indeed learn on the job.

2021 is the year that I see ND having a shot at the CFP. It would be nice to have an OC who is not learning...

You would think that Coordinators should be empowered to hire/fire coaches under them. Especially ones who are the opposite of the head coach's specialty.

But you are probably correct that it...

You totally missed my point.

The argument that 1) ND might win a NC if it had an elite coach is a different argument than 2) whether or not ND can ever again hire an elite coach in the future.

Can you expand on your statements?

1) He is also a guy who has gotten serious consideration for P5 OC duties.

Other than not getting hired by Northwestern, what other "serious consideration"...

I agree. For all but maybe 20 OCs, being OC at Notre Dame should be considered a promotion. Rather than just take the path of least resistance by promoting Rees, ND should actually try to hire the...

I do not think that much has changed with regards to the academics (or lack thereof) for football players. Just that there is more exposure to athletes via internet interviews, cable shows, etc.

When ND has won a NC they have had an elite coach.

Kelly has been close to a NC but seems to have hit his ceiling

You stated that Kelly is not an Elite Coach.

Just noticed that Styles' father was a starting LB at Ohio St who then played in the NFL for 6 years.

Good that ND was able to get his commitment.

Had ND lost to Michigan by 3 on the road, they would have had a shot at being ranked in Top 10 which should have given them a better bowl.

ND only 3.5 point favorites

Hard to believe that a 10-2 Irish squad are only 3.5 favorites over a 7-5 Iowa State team on a neutral field.
