Do you want to know why Brian Kelly walks around with both fingers in the air? That's because he gives ZERO FUCKS y'all. I couldn't help but laugh mercilessly once the news was out that Brian Kelly was returning to Notre Dame after buying the Philadelphia Eagles a Cosmo up at the bar.
ALL YOU ASSHOLES MUST PAY.
I don't give a shit if this means you and, you, never return to Subway Domer again. Go fuck yourself with your mommy's pillbox.
Confused yet? Yeah, well this message is for those Notre Dame fans that were all like:
- Drop Kelly NOW and hire [INSERT COACHE'S NAME THAT WILL NEVER COACH AT NOTRE DAME]
- Brian Kelly is such a HORRIBLE TRAITOR!
- Brian Kelly just showed his true colors.
- I THOUGHT BK SAID HE LOVED ND WHY HE HATE ME WHY HE WANT TO LEAVE?!!!!1
You motherfuckers have absolutely no concept of reality and how the planet Earth operates. This is what happens when there is success. Other people want some of that, and they are willing to pay a lot of money to get that success. You would have to be a moron, in ANY profession, to not at least see what is out there, when what is out there comes calling for you.
I also don't understand this whole, "Kelly could have handled this better," argument. Serious? How? Did you honestly think that we deserved or should have expected a daily update from Camp Kelly on what he is thinking/doing/drinking/eating/playing/pooping? What fucking crackhead world are you living in? Brian Kelly ain't the fucking POTUS y'all.
As fans, whether alumni or subway, it's time to wake up and say hello to Notre Dame football in the second decade of the third millennium, Anno Domini. Brian Kelly can basically do whatever he wants if he keeps delivering these type of seasons. If he leaves at some point, at least we can honestly say that the program is more than on the right track, it's thundering on down the line.
So, puff out your chest and suck that fucking beer gut in like Katherine Webb just walked by, and move on. Brian Kelly is the Head Coach of the Fighting Irish for 2013, he will bring in another top 5 recruiting class, he will start the season ranked somewhere in the top 10, and with any luck and a whole lot of hard work, the Irish will be in the discussion to play for another chance at a National Title.
Then we can do this again, and then you can tell me we should hire Gruden. Until then, however, shut the fuck up and enjoy the ride.
Sub, sad news if it's true from Deadspin.
Well said Sub, from one Sub to another. Tsk, tsk the language, I will be off to Confession later and blame it all on you.
My Pops was a '27 grad and wold have loved Kell, and this years team.
Me too Subs, me too.
For the "should-have-fired-him" crowd, I think it's useful to point out how catastrophically bad that would be. All the best coaches have NFL aspirations some where in their heads, either consciously planning a career move or flattered to at least entertain an offer and imagine the possibilities. All the best coaches get calls from NFL teams. Firing Kelly for interviewing with Philly would make the position radioactive. Remember, no "big time coach" was beating down the door to be ND's coach when Kelly was hired, same for the three searches before that. The position just isn't that attractive. Getting fired for flirting with the NFL would be toxic for any other interested coach (who might be worth anything).
Anytime someone needs to use extreme profanity to make a point, I always assume they must not have a very strong case. This article is Exhibit A.
You must be very proud of this piece.
@smokebomb99 Actually, I am very proud of this piece. It displays two characteristics that I love about blogs and blogger; passion and comedy. And in that, people like yourself don't really understand what this piece is and who it was meant for. This wasn't an argument to try and win anyone over to my side of the table, but rather a "pep rally" for those individuals that have the same line of thinking as I do on this subject. Also, I was drunk. So there you go.
And here I thought the contract extension he got a year ago was supposed to prevent this kind of thing. And by "this kind of thing," I specifically mean the type of BS that gives pause to FIVE FUCKING STAR LINEBACKERS. So it wasn't too much to expect that all of three years into his contract, he just sit on his millions and bask in the affections of the ND faithful. So the issue isn't just this one recruit, but all the recruits we won't get because opposing coaches will play the "Is he truly committed?" card.
@MartinDekom Quit crying over Anzalone. He was never coming to ND. As for the future of recruiting at ND, I don't see how this is a problem. Pete Carroll dealt with it for years as Nick Saban has dealt with it. This is more of a problem in the minds of the "hold me I'm Irish" crowd.
Speaking of which... Kelly is just supposed to stay the 23rd highest paid coach despite outperforming 22 others because he gets to "bask in the affections" from the ND fans.
GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE WITH THAT SHIT.
@TheSubwayDomer @MartinDekom It's not like Anzalone had a history of flipping...oh wait. He just had a convenient excuse, see the OTHER FIVE FUCKING RECRUITS who showed up on campus anyways. Take a deep breath and realize that BK doesn't owe you anything.
And please...the media says he has to win back the faithful?? WHAT? They caused this ENTIRE 'debacle' in the first place. Rumors get planted, rumors expand, rumors become truth, rumors become 6000 articles, rumors become every media member hounding every recruit, current player, former player, fan, etc. All while the people involved sit back and just watch the landscape burn.
@TheSubwayDomer @MartinDekom I think we should've fired him immediately after the NCG and hired Saban. Give him all the money in the Vatican and watch all the national championships arrive. Also, hire Urban Meyer as OC, Frank Beamer '09 as ST and Nick Saban's Clone as DC. THEY ALL WILL LOVE NOTRE DAME AND NEVER HAVE SOMEONE ASK THEM TO INTERVIEW AT THE NEXT LEVEL.
@LetsGoRVin @TheSubwayDomer @MartinDekom Yep. Seriously, what's the alternative? Fire him? GTFO Here is a pretty good look at the future situation. It makes some points that I overlooked in this rant: http://www.onefootdown.com/2013/1/15/3873932/bk-is-back-so-are-the-age-old-issues-at-nd
@TheSubwayDomer There are plenty of perks that come along with the money, so it's not like he can't make the rent this month. But good that you brought up Saban, as he clearly able to negotiate with interested parties privately and quietly without shitting all over himself. By and large the media report that Kelly's position now is one where he has to win back the faithful, "mend fences," etc. That is, with the sole exception of you. This is not a position we want a coach to be in when we are poised for a sustained return to the elite ranks. We want to build on the momentum, not see how much of a beating it can take.
