Does it even matter?

NCAA Football: Notre Dame-Spring Game Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Before we whip the faithful fans of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish up in a frenzy, this is not an article bashing Brian Kelly. It’s not an article bashing Notre Dame or Jack Swarbrick either. In fact, this is barely an article at all.

It’s a question... Does Notre Dame have a Brian Kelly problem?

No matter what Brian Kelly seems to do, it creates a fairly large divide between fans and the media alike. In much the same way, anything Brian Kelly says is instantly diagnosed and half of it is determined to be derogatory or selfish.

It’s maddening, and it’s disruptive. This whole ordeal with DeShone Kizer and the NFL Draft only magnifies the situation. So it begs the question that I have asked already: does Notre Dame have a Brian Kelly problem?

Will the remainder of Brian Kelly’s tenure at Notre Dame be shrouded with so much contempt from one side towards him and his supporters? Without a national title, will it all be too much for the University to handle?

I have more questions than answers. Is everyone out of their damn minds?

Probaby. With that in mind, here are your weekly bagpipes to fan the flames of WTF.
