At whatever level Kelly is recruiting, it matters not a damn if he & staff can't coach his players, teach them, prep them, and make mid-game adjustments with them. And he cannot or does not do any of these at a level of consistency that would justify any confidence in his regime going forward.

Nonetheless and with all appropriate disclaimers, this SB Nation piece paints a different picture of Kelly's recruiting vis-a-vis other top traditional programs. The article is from last Feb., and given the recently-concluded cataclysm of a season, the line "Notre Dame has seen mixed on-field results through four years under Brian Kelly" becomes a nominee for the most ironically understated sentence in sports journalism this year.
