"Winning, that's the bottom line." 16 days after a too common defeat by USC , 13 days after the expected firing of the underachieving Tyrone Willingham, with three rings on his fingers, the newly hired head coach of Notre Dame preached such a determined statement.

I think they should have. We'd still have Clausen and Tate. We have taken a step back since he left.

I don't agree with this. Charlie had no idea how to build a college team from the inside, athletically and mentally.
I agree that we would definitely have a better record, but I'm looking more "big picture" with the Kelly hire.
I have a good buddy whos friends grew up with Chuck Martin. They all went to dinner one night and he's telling them how awful we are on defense. He said that the best kids are really really good, but the dropoff in talent with the 2nd tier guys is huge! The lack of speed and athleticism is crippling.
Aside from Manti and Carlo, who's done anything in that front 7 to impress? Safeties are average at best and Walls still gets beat.
Now Gary Gray is a stud and bound for the NFL, but seriously that's only 3 out of 11 guys on D that are tearing it up.
That's bad.
It's gonna take Kelly another year or two to get speed and athleticism in on the D.
Now the offense is pretty set for a quite a few years, and will continue to be.
