  • Notre Dame should go with defense.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4728474


    I think coach Edsall would be a great hire for them. He is not the pretty pick, most would like Kelly but what does Notre Dame need another offensive mind for? They already had one, and see where it got them.

    They need to get back to the basics and develop that defense and the teams overall toughness.

    Edsall has consistently had a solid defense at UCONN and always has had a tough running game as well, but by far it is the defense that carries his teams.

    Look at the four teams in the SEC and Big 12 championship games. They have all arguably the top four defenses in college football. And Nebraska proved this year that a great defense can win games, even if the offense is below average.


    Kelly sure can recruit but he has never been a defensive guy. Both are good hires but Edsall makes more sense to me at this point. Kelly is basically just like Weis, and that is not the problem at Notre Dame. I doubt it happens however because it is not a flashy hire at all.

    Too bad for Notre Dame there is no John Calipari in college football who just by coming to a school can get three of the top 10 high school prospects all to come to Notre Dame and they are ranked preseason top five...haha

    I Think Kelly is the best all around coach out there, but he is more of an offensive guy and the largest problem at was ND has been the horrendous offense.

    Plus Kelly's never had to deal with the academic standards at ND. Jim Harbaugh would be the best choice because he knows how to win at a place with high academic standards

      I believe Kelly was a Defensive Coordinator in the past, so he knows plenty about that side of the ball as well.

      I don't really think he's the sexy coach either. I think he's the 4th option behind the likes of Meyer, Stoops, and Harbaugh.

        Brian Kelly was the defensive coordinator of Grand Valley State University. In my book that does not really make him a defensive guy.

        Well that makes him the #1 option because Meyer, Stoops and Harbaugh are going no where, or at least that is what they all have said.



        Some names that most do not talk about but guys who I think would fit the Notre Dame job and do well.

        Les Miles: LSU
        Paul Johnson: Georgia Tech
        Mark Dantonio: Michigan State

        None of these guys really give them the bang they want however and at least two of them are probably not even interested.


        And the Jon Gruden thing, it would be a fun hire but I heard someone say they are not sure he is a college type of coach, and I think that is probably true. Who would not like that hire however.


        I still think Edsall would be a wonderful hire for them.

          I agree. I don't think Gruden is a college coach at all. He's an NFL junkie.

          I know Harbaugh said he would stay, but I think he said that only because it's Notre Dame. If Michigan fired Rich Rodriguez, I think Harbaugh would jump at it. He's the perfect guy for them, imo.

          I think Kelly is the right guy for ND. He's got the Irish name and all. You could put him in a leprechaun outfit and nobody would think twice. lol.

              I'm hoping he means horrendous defense.

              Then again, this would be the 2nd time in a week in which I've seen someone say ND's offense was terrible because they lost 6 games, so idk.

                The type of kids Caliapri recruits would never get into ND.

                    I think whoever takes the ND job is in for a long overhaul period. Many of the athletes recruited by Weis will likely either declare for the draft or transfer to another school. Many committed to ND to play for Weis and will leave with him.
                    And proud of it!!!

                      I don't think so. Back in the 70's or 80's I forget exactly when, an envelope addressed from the U of K to a major basketbasll recruit broke open on transit and was full of money. Kentucky like a lot of successful colleges pay their players under the table one way or another.
                      Caliapri is just following the usual practice at most major competitive schools.

                        You missed my attempt at some irony there. More having to do with Adolph Rupp if you will.

                          I doubt it, thusfar the only guy rumoured to transfer has already said he wouldnt


                          Saints 2014 draft wish list:
                          - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
                          - Corner or Wideout in the first
                          - No reaching
                          - No Kelvin Benjamin
