Weather, inflexible coaching dooms ND

Notre Dame running back Josh Adams (33) is tackled by North Carolina State safety Jarius Morehead (31) during the first half of Saturday’s game.

Not even the hurricane experts provided ample warning to the miserable conditions that awaited the Notre Dame football team for its weekend trip to Raleigh, N.C., and a date last Saturday with North Carolina State.

Hurricane Matthew – which made landfall in South Carolina about 200 miles south of Raleigh -- brought 50 mph winds and almost four inches of rain to Carter-Finley Stadium during a game that in hindsight probably should’ve been postponed.

Les Miles...are you out there? You would look real good in blue and gold !


You could see how poorly the team was coached dating back to when Golson was under center. It is painfully obvious that Brian Kelly's shelf life has expired and he should be removed before season's end and a committee formed to find a coach for next year. Kelly is arrogant, inflexible, a poor leader and needs to fo post haste.

Just Facts

Kelly continues to throw everyone under the bus. He has yet to take any sort of blame himself. That is what desperate coaches do. He has lost the team, the fans, and most of all the deep pocket alums. There will be change at the Head Coaching position and sooner than Mr. Kelly thinks.
