      No. I like national titles though, having witnessed the last two. It’s pretty good.

          Not really. I mean, Nebraska had a run. Florida had a run then too. FSU as well. then Miami and USC. All of them now have coaches on hot seats. BK is doing amazing.

            Mel Tucker, Dave Aranda, Dave Clawson, Patt Narduzzi and even Lane Kiffin are all probably top candidates. Maybe even Kirby Smart if they finish undefeated with the Title.

                • Just want everyone to think twice and a third time about 5 straight 10+ win seasons. Literally never been done in ND history. One of if not the most storied program in CFB history and BK is winning games on a regular basis like none before him.

                      This whole season feels like a culture win.

                      Funnier than you in 2012.

                        lol, this is truly the epitome of fandom.

                        We've lost a large volume of players to injury and the draft, two major difference makers on D, turnstile at LT to start the season, yada yada, 3 QBs used, 5 healthy WRs, yada yada, 5 straight 10 win seasons and still in the CFP discussion and somehow, Kelly still hasn't done enough for some self-flagellating fans.

                        CBK is amongst the top 3-4 coaches in the game right now. We don't need an advocate for the devil, we need to discuss Kelly's divine nature.

                        Even if we get blown up in a playoff game.

                              I love me some BK and what he's done for the program, but you can't wear that fact like a badge of honor without the associate asterisk that is:

                              ND didn't start regularly playing 10 games per year until 1949. They didn't start regularly playing 11 games per year until 1973. They didn't start regularly playing 12 games a year until 1987. Kelly currently plays up to 13 games a year, assuming a bowl.

                              So yes - it's impressive, but it's also impressive*

                                  • I am certain those at ESPN want Kelly to take another job because of the success ND has had recently. The whole, “they have hit their ceiling” narrative is tired and worn out. Just five years ago they were saying a coach couldn’t win consistently at ND.

                                    Those not connected to ND are worried. Not for what can happen this year, but for the fact Kelly is seemingly awakening a potential giant. If Kelly wins a championship open the floodgates because kids are going to want on board. ESPN doesn’t want to talk about ND being a contender as it takes away from their product. The best way to ensure ND doesn’t win is to have Kelly take another job.

                                        • I would have like him/us to have gotten luckier with the QB situation in his time at ND.

                                          • These last five seasons have been very good. I think you'd find a lot of programs who would want to be in Notre Dame's position, especially any who have not been to the playoff and or won a National Championship.

                                            Kelly has won more football games than any coach that the university has ever employed. All that's missing is the big ring. When you consider the era of the sport he's coached in, it's not entirely unbelievable he hasn't gotten one. Since Kelly has been at ND, 6 teams have won the National Championship. Alabama has done it 6 times. Saban's success there has gotten plenty of head coaches fired that have had a great deal of wins on their records versus losses, and many of those coaches have been dismissed within Saban's own conference.

                                            I've long had my doubts about him and I never imagined they'd have this kind of long term recovery after that 2016 season. Really a great job on and off the field.
                                            It is no coincidence that the growth of modern tyrants has in every case been heralded by the growth of prejudice.

                                                • I love how the negative Nancies talk about how "I like winning championships" but completely disregard all of the other intangibles that have come into the game of college football since '88.

                                                  Every single team now plays on a national stage, which was our lone advantage three decades ago, coupled with the fact that our talent pool is completely limited based on our standards compared to the blue blood programs that recruit the kids who "don't come here to play school." Not to mention how long the how long it took Brian Kelly to break through to the administration to upgrade our facilities into the 21st century while every other program was doing exactly that in the Willingham/Weis days.

                                                  These aren't excuses, these are facts. The work that BK has done to get this program to these heights, only to come up short against football factories like OSU, Clemson and Bama, is nothing short of remarkable.

                                                  Take a look in the mirror, go back 20 years when we were between Bob Davie and Ty Willingham and think about how much of a pipedream five straight ten win seasons would have seemed like.

                                                  And as previously mentioned, if the likes of LSU, USC, UF, etc. are rumored to be putting phone calls in to Brian Kelly's camp, clearly they don't agree that he has hit his "ceiling;" realize he is an anomaly when it comes to setting the bar at ND.

                                                      You can talk about how Kelly benefits from playing more games, but he still has to win those games. More impressive.

This wasn’t at the press conference but it was after the fellas on Gameday said he should be a candidate for USC.

This wasn’t at the press conference but it was after the fellas on Gameday said he should be a candidate for USC.
                                                                  Yeah I rewatched it on youtube and he did rule it out. They other stuff he threw out appeared to be bad jokes. Typical Kelly where his jokes are almost indistinquishable from serious comments.

The only reason Kelly would leave to go anyplace else outside of doubling or tripling his salary would be the challenge. So you have to figure out, if rebuilding USC is more important to him than trying to win a NC at Notre Dame? Given what he's put into this program and where it currently is, I can't see him leaving for any other HC position.
