Brian Kelly Loves Shaun Crawford And BLAMES Mike Elko For Notre Dame’s Defense

The dual nature of Brian Kelly.

NCAA Football: Notre Dame at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 3-1 after the 38-18 stomping of the Michigan State Spartans, and Brian Kelly just got through another press conference without any PURPLE ALERT moments.

That’s what happens when a football team stops playing footsie with an opponent its better than, and just decides to kick the living crap out of them. HOW AMAZING FOR US!

Among the things that Kelly talked about in his press conference to kick off this Saturday’s game against the Miami-Ohio Redhawks:

  • Kelly takes full credit for recruiting Shaun Crawford. Crawford wasn’t a take for former Irish DC Bob Diaco because of his height. Kelly used his head coach override, and offered Crawford a scholarship.
  • Kelly was totally Brian Kelly and blamed Mike Elko, Notre Dame’s new defensive coordinator, for the solid start to the defense this season. That’s SOOO BK.
  • Kelly was very annoyed at ANOTHER missed targeting call by the officials. This time it was for a hit on Brandon Wimbush. This had ACC officials on the ground and Big 10 officials in the booth.
  • If you haven’t heard, Miami Head Coach Chuck Martin used to coach at Notre Dame.
