Jeff Faine is a hero -- to many. Here's a link to the South Bend Tribune story about Jeff's return home during the Bucs bye week.

I commented to a friend the other day that it would be nice if Coach Kelly stopped using the phrase "I've been a head coach for 21 years..." It's getting old.
Coach, we all know this isn't your first rodeo. The best advice right now comes from legendary Raider Al Davis -- "JUST WIN BABY!"
Well, last night Coach Kelly might have said something FOR THE FIRST TIME, to the media, that he is now regretting (see Chicago Tribune article below). In essence, Coach Kelly took a shot at the players who were recruited by the previous regime -- never a good thing to do from my perspective. Especially, when they dominate your starting line-up...
It's going to be an interesting 24 hours in the Notre Dame football program.
