            BK’s name is being thrown out as a possible candidate. Don’t know if there’s anything to it however.

              I assume he means someone threw out BK for LSU which isn’t really much of anything

                Thanks, guys -- appreciate it. Wondering if this is LSU deep pockets talking or BK's agent...

                • BK’s agent has already gotten BK and staff raises based on the last time LSU was open… he’s gonna keep riding that train to get BK more leverage until it stops working lol

                    I think the LSU talking heads are looking at a list of who they see as the top ten or so coaches out there and they are realistically eliminating the 5-6 that wouldn’t move. I think they see BK as one that would listen when that time comes.

                    • Part of me always wanted to see how BK would have done at a school like LSU I think at one point he would have killed it. Not sure anymore though.

                      • I would like to see Kelly at a place where he could win a Natty like LSU. He has taken this program as far as he can take it

                        Fickell, Campbell, would be guys I would like to replace Kelly.

                        • First of all not happening.

                          2nd, if BK thinks the ND media/fanbase is rough, go ahead and head down to LSU. Less than two years removed from a NC and they want O gone. Take Quinn with ya while you're at it.

                          BK has it good at ND and he knows it. He's not going anywhere.

                          • After the eagles flirtation, Kelly has done nothing but expand the Irish brand and commit to it. I don’t expect him to have a stop after South Bend and if he did he would not likely exit on a high to a relatively equivalent position and tarnish the brand over money cheat which can now be above board with NIL and academic restrictions.

                            • Coach Kelly is 60 years old and looking to cement his legacy with a National Title. He has a team building for a shot the 2022 & 2023 season.
                              LSU is going to get mashed about in the SEC for the next couple of years. Not sure if he wants to do a ground-up build at this stage in his career.

                                Would he have gotten Joe's Brady and Burrow? If not, I'm skeptical.

                                  Rinse and repeat.

                                  I don't think the media/fanbase would be much of a factor in any decision if there were one, but as you say, he's not going anywhere. His name is only out there because of his success.

                                    Campbell? This was supposed to be the year ISU makes a run into the top 5, and they could barely beat Northern Iowa, and lost to Iowa ugly and Baylor. Staring down the realistic possibility of losing 4 more games. He has hit his peak and he is not impressive.

                                    • I know this isn't happening but if it did, Fickell would have to be the guy. He's a fit and he would realistically take the job. Cincinnati would probably offer Freeman the head coaching job then that would be pretty wild.

                                      • I don’t think BK will move from ND at this point in his life and I’m happy about that. The man understands ND and appreciates the university

                                          • Surprised I haven't seen it mentioned here, but I know Matt Freeman said that players on the team told him that the post game scuffle between ND and VT was because a racial slur was used by a VT player (and maybe a staffer?) towards one of the Ademilolas. He did say to take it with a grain of salt since it's clearly coming from just our side.

                                                I've been trying to find video of the scuffle and can't find it. How big of a dustup was it?

                                                  I said in the thread in the moment it was all the leaders involved. Hamilton, Hinish, Kyren, Ademilola. If it was something we did I would have been disappointed. But hearing that it ends up the opposite and the side I was hoping, all the leaders defending one of their own is what you want to see in bad circumstances

                                                      I was at the game and it was mainly a lot of jawing back and forth as the teams were headed to the locker room. There was some minor pushing/shoving with players trying to hold each other back. I did see at least one VT assistant going ballistic and had to be held back by some of his brethren. It only lasted a couple of minutes. The VT crowd was pretty raucous the entire night, the fact that Coan came in with the atmosphere cranked up was extremely impressive from where I sat (right in the thick of VT fans). Lots of very drunk folks but after the game, several of them came up to me and shook my hand to say congrats on the win.

                                                        Feel like we'd hear something from Fuente or the Va Tech side if that was the case no? What player is going to be kept on the team after using a slur?

                                                              If we’re forced in 2022: Fickell or Cristobal. I still like Mullen potentially on the horizon.

                                                                    Comment

He did say to take it with a grain of salt since it's clearly coming from just our side.
                                                                        The little I can offer to this is that Jayson A. was by far the most visibly worked up watching from the stands. He'd been moved to the far edge headed back to ND's locker room and had to be held back multiple times by multiple people trying to get back across most of the roster towards VT guys.

Sounds pretty familiar with early Kelly right? So I’m imagining a world where he goes through those growing pains and comes out the other side. If you can get that + a more proven QB development that he continues to show. Jackpot. Like you said though I just don’t know how likely it actually happens.

Not sure the timing works out though and I'm not interested in pushing out Kelly until we begin to see some diminishing returns. Our program culture is in the best place of my lifetime currently.
