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.

Kelly leaving will be huge by realmccoy
This win did not erase the mistakes made by Kelly in the Northwestern game, his inability to develop competent special teams in 5 years (which could have lost us the game yesterday), the complete embarrassment of a team which took the field against Southern Cal, and his stubborn refusal to develop a good, reliable running game and actually use it to win games.
I sat through the Northwestern game in the freezing cold, and he died to me in that game. He has not demonstrated the intellectual capacity to make sound decisions during the course of a season or the course of a game. I have no reason to believe he will change.
When Brian Kelly leaves, we will have a chance to get a competent football coach, who does not single-handedly lose at least two games a year because of his incompetence. I wish him God speed to the NFL.
