Have we become to "PC" (Politically Correct) in this country? I've found two articles this morning complaining about Coach Kelly's "methods" on the Notre Dame sideline. Folks, ESPN on ABC chose to make this a story Saturday night when they continually put a camera on Coach Kelly when his players came to the sideline. And, they "conveniently" chose to only show the times he was displeased with one of his players.
THIS IS BIG TIME COLLEGE FOOTBALL -- NOT KINDERGARTEN RECESS! Why am I'm fully expecting the ACLU or Gloria Allred to be next?
Here's a story written by a guy named Mike Hutton from the Post-Tribune -- which I understand is a Northwest Indiana newspaper. Maybe I'm too old-school -- you decide:

Some may remember the OK Go music video from this past year that included members of the Band of the Fighting Irish -- performing this pop rock band's hit song "This Too Shall Pass." Well, OK Go is back this Saturday at Notre Dame -- first they'll play at halftime of the Pitt game with the Band of the Fighting Irish and then after the game they'll play a concert at Legends (the on campus bar) for the Notre Dame students. Here's a link to the OK Go music video that "starred" the Band of the Fighting Irish:

The University of Notre Dame's Melissa Henderson (Garland, TX) was named National Player of the Week by Top Drawer Soccer! The junior forward scored four goals and an assist in the Irish wins over Big East foes; Syracuse and St. Johns. In addition, Melissa was also named Big East Offensive Player of the Week -- the second time she's won this award this season. Congratulations! The 5th ranked Irish are now 11-1 on the season. Here's a link to the story:
