      I had a real bad feeling when I heard LSU got Brian Kelly. He will end up being the best hire of them all. He’s one of the top 5 coaches in the game for sure. Hard to argue he’s better than Saban but you can effectively argue he’s as good or better than the rest.

      I like Billy Napier and his approach but the jury is out on whether he will ever be as good a coach as Brian Kelly. I really hope he works it out. I’d like to have him around for a long time.

      I have to believe we could have had Brian Kelly if was willing to go to LSU.

      It probably not a coincidence BTW that Notre Dame has taken a step back in his absence.
