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.

I think the stars have to align and some luck by Bellcon
is involved with getting a home run hire. But schools like Notre Dame, OSU, Mich, Alabama should be able to do a lot to get the stars to align. Such as being prepared to and not afraid to get rid of a coach when the door opens for a home run hire.
Chip Kelly could be that candidate. Let's assume Brian Kelly struggles next year. Nothing stops ND from throwing a ton of money and a ton of control at Chip except the PTB. He might be in the best position for a move especially if the Eagles don't make the playoffs next year.
The key is to be in his ear early. Like now. Tell him you are prepared to give him whatever he wants and needs to be successful. The red carpet has been cleaned and is ready to be rolled out as soon as he is ready to make a move. Also tell him that ND would like the last shot. No matter what any other team offers and no matter how good a situation seems ND would at least like the last shot because ND is the crown jewels of the bling world. Then sell it.
