    Brian Kelly, smartest guy in the world?

    I'm not positive, but I think Cincinnati let Pitt score the touchdown at the 1:45 mark? Pitt had second and two at about the seven.........Cincy had two timeouts, but Pitt had just gained eight yards on the running play on first down. It didn't look like a lot of resistance by Cincinnati on that second down rush. If Pitt would have gotten the first down, they kneel it and kick the field goal on the last play of the game to theoretically win. What did you think........did they let them score?

    Wouldn't be the first time, I remember Mike Holmgren doing this in Super Bowl XXXII, letting the Broncos score to give Green Bay a shot at a final drive.

    Too bad it didn't work back then...

    Notre Dame did the same thing last week against Stanford, right?

    I told my wife they should let them score. Did they? I don't know. That would be an awefully gutsy call as a coach.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    It didn't work well for Weiss last week. The move of a desperate man.

    If he let them score is he also so smart he knew they would miss the extra point so the lead would be 6 and not 7???


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Brian Kelly, smartest guy in the world?

    I'm a believer in doing this, especially when you have a team like Cincy's. That said, I don't think that's what Kelly was doing.


    I'll tell you why he IS the smartest man in the world. He's using the Notre Dame interest to get a MASSIVE extension from Cincy. I don't think he wants to deal with Notre Dame's BS (unrealistic expectations, high academic standards), but it's hard to turn that $ down. He's making Cincy dig into their pockets, so now he'll be filthy rich, and locked into a cush job. I think if Cincy matches or comes close to ND's offer, I think he stays.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Cincy in a million years will not be able to offer a quarter of what ND can, whether they beg, steal or borrow.
