  1. I joined here after the Blue Grey Sky blog/forum shut down back in 2010. Was one of my favorite ND blogs of all time. Right after DD of course
  2. According to my brother who went to UF, UF sees this as a big get. Taylor was possibly LSU's best recruiter.
  3. I was pretty elated that all the assistant coaches turned him down, but it sounds like Freeman would have gone if he didn’t get the head coaching job at Notre Dame. He said as much in his interview.
  4. When Coan is under pressure, our offense has been terrible. I see our success dependent on how much our offense has improved since the first few games of the season. Also, if we can gain first-downs, the up-tempo should keep them a bit more on their heels or gasping for air. I'm excited to see how Freeman does!
  5. Rocket - no kidding. I felt immediate guilt for not having him as my #1 choice. It’s amazing to see how much those players are behind them.It’s amazing to see how much those players are behind them.
  6. (Edit: rattlesnake, it looks like you posted this minutes before me. If you want some more laughs, read the comments in the link that I posted. ) It seems like every news article I read as blast in Kelly. But that might just be the algorithm knowing I am pissed at him when I was listening to his press conference and his announcement in front of the players, I swear he was faking a southern accent. I miss one, it gets pretty bad and the comments are pretty funny! https://ftw.usatoday.com/lists/brian-kelly-southern-accent-lsu-twitter-reacts
  7. I still keep doing a double-take anytime I see "LSU Head Coach" or the LSU pin on his lapel.
  8. I have no idea how legit this website is, but… https://www.essentiallysports.com/nfl-news-rumours-arizona-cardinals-kliff-kingsbury-to-replace-brain-kelly-as-the-head-coach-of-notre-dame-fighting-irish-kliff-kingsbury-arizona-cardinals/
  9. Here's the recap of Jack's press conference. During the press conference, Jack stated... - Jack stating that Brian never once told him he was even speaking with other schools and never gave him a chance to save him / match his offer. The first conversation Brian had with Jack was last night. - that they will take their time in their coaching search. He understands the importance of recruiting, the timing of the transfer portal, etc. but it is more important to go through the process and ensure they get the right candidate. (He said this multiple times) - they will not let Kelly coach if we go to the playoffs or in a bowl. "Brian will not be a part of that" - their current coaches will do great in our bowl game. They will do the coaching and he will let them decide "who gets to do the things they will be missing such as picking the coin flip" (jab!) - 12 years is a long time to coach at Notre Dame and we were well served by Brian for 12 years. He expected that it was coming to an end soon - "ND is perfectly prepared to move forward" - In regards to facilities, he is proud of the major investments they've made. He expects continued investment and, at some point, he expects to expand the footprint of the football building - Brian Kelly never had any requests for changes or updates to facilities. He's always given Brian anything he's asked for in terms of personnel. - "after a little resistance", Brian came to appreciate the unique aspects of ND such as admissions, etc. - brian told the team today it was "just about a new opportunity and his family to do something new". There was no sense that Brian couldn't feel they could take the next step here (at ND) - Jack will wait until after the new year if that is the right candidate. All that matters is the right candidate, even if it's after the bowl season - he could sense restlessness with Brian. Brian had a Freudian slip or two along the way. Jack would have tried to save him, but Brian never had a conversation about it. Jack would not have resisted about having a conversation with Brian to keep him happy. This must have been a decision by him and his family. - Brian is already on his way to LSU right now. He will be introduced tomorrow as the LSU head coach.

  11. Jack in his press conference right now: https://www.abc57.com/news/live-notre-dame-officials-hold-press-conference-amid-coach-brian-kellys-departure Jack stating that Brian never once told him he was even speaking with other schools and never gave him a chance to save him / match his offer.

  12. I will refrain from my initial reaction and won’t share the content I sent to my brother-in-law because it will probably get me arrested if I post it on a public forum. Notre Dame stuck by Brian Kelly after a 4-8 season, when every sport pundit was calling for his firing Notre Dame stuck by Brian Kelly after Brian Declan, when every sport pundit was calling for his firing Notre Dame stuck by Brian Kelly when he turned into Bobby Knight 2.0 during his earlier years, when every sport pundit was calling for his firing Brian Kelly decided not to stick by Notre Dame. My words say “good luck” to Brian, but I don’t really mean that… There is a small chance of hope that this is a steppingstone towards greater things for Notre Dame. I will admit that I was enjoying the comfort of 10-win seasons with little hope for a national championship. I hope hindsight on today is generous to Notre Dame! If anything, I finally found a team to root against when they play Alabama.
