Brian Kelly has turned lemons into lemonade. Following a 4-8 betting on College Football record in 2016 he confronted reality. Kelly admits he was too distracted. He became distant from his players. So too did he see the need to update schematically. Notre Dame and college football haven’t been the same. Kelly dived into details with players and staff. He changed assistants where necessary. Now the Irish are closing in on the college football playoff. At the very least. By contrast, Syracuse coach Dino Babers went 10-3 in 2018. Babers is now on a seat getting warmer by the hour.
