    just saw recently that his winning percentage is the same as holtz first 5 years. he's definitely the best coach they've had there since holtz. it just isn't as easy to win there as it used to be.

    That and a lot more rides on every season in this day and age. Having good seasons isn't enough any more when coaches are making 4 and 5 mil .

    Of course their performance has been atrocious in most of their big games the last few years.

    I'm a big proponent of firing coaches quickly if they aren't up to snuff, but this would be a bad guy to get rid of. doubt they'd improve.

    mixed bad. beat LSU in the bowl game. got obliterated by USC. almost beat florida state. they never should have been in the NC in the first place though. can't blame the guy for overachieving.

    By the time they got to November, their defense was decimated by injuries. If they were healthy, they would have beaten ASU, Northwestern, and Louisville.

    Thrice finished 8-5 (including '14), w/ his best 12-1 ('12) and a 9-4 in-between. 3-2 in post season. His current team is by far his most talented and their schedule is relatively friendly in comparison to the past five, this is his opportunity he needs to capitalize on it

    Has 4 consecutive 10-win seasons. Hes recruiting well and is protected by a weak conference schedule. When will this failure take place?

    Didn't realize ND was a legit playoff team.

    Nah, his job security is solid. Notre Dame was pretty much bad -- or at the very most, decidedly mediocre -- between Holtz and Kelly. It was a long stretch.

    Could be. Their sked is manageable.

    Starting this year. You know, the first year he doesn't have Chad Morris. I thought this ground had been covered.

    I think he has a point that ND fans still see themselves as a team that should be competing for NCs annually even though that's unrealistic given their academic requirements and geography.

    Their academic requirements are vastly goddamn overrated and there are plenty of Catholics in the midwest to build a team. Kelly simply isn't that good a coach.

    Any academic requirements put them at a huge disadvantage to get elite athletes.

    That is the great bullshit that places like Notre Dame throw out. They have admitted illiterates for years.

    They admit some, but their roster doesn't look like one built Florida state style. Difference between a school that lets in 25 percent illiterates and 95 percent.

    Again, bullshit. They admitted Tony Rice. That is all I need to know about their standards.

    They are no different than most. Neither is Cal. Don't be delusional. You should know better.
