What would his top recruits and their parents think after hearing this? Unbelievable.

    Hey he spoke the truth, i hate notre damn with a passion, but i think Brian Kelly is a class act, and a good coach.

    I didn't see anything wrong with what he said. They asked him what he thought and he told them the truth and he called it like he seen it. They looked un-inspired so he dang sure wasn't going to give them props for that horrible first half...

    During the game, my wife said maybe Notre Dame should have paid an SEC team to come up and scrimmage to get a dose of that SEC speed.

    I did, too. No coach speak, just frank honesty. I can see why he is so successful.

    Louie looked like someone gave him a setative or something. I taped the post game coverage because I went to sleep. Poor old Louie looked like a deer in head lights.

    after i laughed, i thought that maybe he meant it in a figurative way. like maybe he hoped Alabama would come out a little flat in the second half?

    Was initially shocked! Looked at my Wife and Son and we just collectively shook our heads and smiled. Discussed with some co-workers yesterday. All had the same response. How can a NCG caliber coach (insert comment here) say something like that then go in the locker room and motivate the team to compete? Completely puzzled and at awe over that one. Still.

    Honesty does not require full disclosure at a half time interview. Kelly made a mistake or he was speaking figuratively, as the poster above noted, that maybe Bama comes back flat for the second half.

    I wonder what his players and their parents thought of Kelly's comments.

    Maybe to him, it was already Post Game! We had already scored enough points to win the game.

    The whole team just looked defeated. Every time they showed T'ao he looked saddened like he believed all the hype and couldn't believe a team was doing this to ND.

    but as all of the pundits told us most of november and december the film (as long as you were very selective in what film you looked at) showed that bama had been exposed.

    I think he surprised himself when he actually said what he was thinking.

    This is true--all of the players seem like class acts.

    My wife and I were both stunned at Kelly's remarks. They sounded like after-game remarks, not halftime remarks.
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.
