Brian Kelly, the head coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football program stood in front of the media on Tuesday for his weekly press conference. Kelly seems genuinely excited for the game against the Michigan State Spartans, and wants that Megaphone Trophy back at Notre Dame.
Kelly spent a lot of time answering questions about Brandon Wimbush and his accuracy. One question and answer involved how good Wimbush was in high school with his passing accuracy:
When he was a senior in high school, Brandon Wimbush was actually challenging the national record for accuracy completion percentage, finished about 73% or so. Right now there are questions about does he have an accuracy issue. Do you think that's overblown or have you seen things in practice that make you continue to be confident he is as accurate, being mindful high school is a lot different than college?
BRIAN KELLY: Yeah, I mean, I have absolutely no questions about his ability to play at the highest level at Notre Dame and help us win a championship.
Accuracy I think is a product of being comfortable within an offense, an offense that has changed a little bit from what he was used to running. It also has to do with really only having one receiver that has established himself in the program for a period of time. He's working with some new receivers.
So I think just some patience and you'll see him throw the ball with a higher accuracy rate.
