Brian Kelly Revisited

I'm just going to post a bunch of random negative thoughts about BK in this post but feel free to use this as a place to talk about him good or bad.

1. BK will now get a pass from most Irish fans assuming we don't completely tank. The "10 win" expectation most fans had will probably now drop down to 7-8 wins. It's not like we were playing very well when Malik went down...

2. Still never seems to have a plan B in place when things go poorly. I mean he was sitting there talking to Malik for what seemed like 6 plays rather than focusing on the actual game. I understand going over there to console him briefly but my impression was that BK was trying to see if he could come back in to play so Kizer didn't have to. In other words, plan B was "Oh **** can I still go with Plan A." This isn't the best example of this (Joe Schmidt going down and ND defense collapsing is better) but seems to happen a lot.

3. Play calling is still utterly horrible. There was a 20 minute stretch during the game where I didn't understand why we ran every play when we did. The 2nd and 10 runs, the 4th and short dive plays. The lack of screens. etc. etc. I don't even know who calls plays anymore it changes so often but it's ultimately on the head coach.

4. How many academically elite schools are going to beat us or come close to beating us (Northwestern, Stanford, Virginia, Navy, etc.) before we stop using our academics as an excuse for recruiting seemingly getting worse every year.

5. How long will we stay with a coach just because we fear we can't do better. 2012 was a team with many Weis players. Our records were 8-4 and 7-5 with teams with only BK players. This season will likely be very similar.

I used to be a huge BK supporter. Don't think I can do it anymore. Especially if we lose 4 games again this year. Obviously we are 2-0 and I hope we win every game and will gladly eat my words but I'm scouting the college football coaching landscape for new candidates.

I'm torn. On one hand I'm thinking 'man, if Fuller and/or Jaylon somehow came back next year, we're loaded'. But we say that almost every other year. Also struggling with BK struggling with plan B. Jimbo Fisher sends every QB to the first round, and no back up looked worse than Sam Mcguire last year when Jameis was suspended and they had time to prepare.

I honestly think we have just **** ugly luck.

Still no excuses this year. Kizer was a top recruit...coach him up and let's run the table. Make your money BK.

Saban and Meyer won NCs with first time starters.

I've never really bought in, but I've never really hated either... I've always hoped BK could be the guy who sets up the guy... Not sure ive ever believed he can be the one. Again have always hoped I'm wrong.

Not fair to BK. Look at the differences in schedule.
