Brian Kelly Said What?

Gregory Shamus

There is bulletin board material, there are comments meant to bait the other team, and then there are completely ignorant statements.



You can hear the ridiculous here...


I'll have to go back and read and listen to check if Kelly was talking about the Fighting Irish or the "Figthing" Irish.

I suppose the basic numbers 23-16 don't seem like much on the surface, but every fan of either team I've ever known has had a visceral reaction to the opposing team. I've lived in four states from the Midwest to the West Coast, and met people in each (and from various other places) who say that they hate Michigan unless they are playing Notre Dame, and vice versa. Those types of reactions prove that this is a rivalry beyond what Kelly called a big regional game. Michigan and Ohio State have the best rivalry in all of sports and play each year for bragging rights, conference titles, and perhaps even the chance to play for a national championship. But, when Michigan and Notre Dame play, it is THE two most storied programs playing for nothing less than the soul of college football.
