This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Why should we defer to your opinion on who's "legit?" by tusk
I suppose that if you were a Wisconsin fan, you would have considered J.J. Watt not to be "legit." After all, he was a two-star recruit on Rivals whose other offers came from the likes of Central Michigan and Minnesota. He sure turned out to suck, didn't he?
This is not necessarily to defend Kelly or his recruiting or player development. But can we please stop writing off guys like Williams and Wallace before we've actually seen them play? I swear, a lot of posters on this board come off more as jilted lovers than disgruntled football fans when it comes to Kelly. I'm convinced Kelly's not the answer at ND, but magesterial pronouncements like yours about whether players who haven't played a down in college are "legit" are beyond tiresome.
