When did Notre Dame turn into Disney World?

Posted: November 22, 2014 by jmklee in Uncategorized

I know that Brian Kelly has lead the Irish to a National Title game.  I know that  he has a winning percentage that rivals Dan Divine and Lou Holtz.  I know that he is a good coach but sweet Jesus! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!  When you have a .500 record against ranked teams, 8-8, you need to make sure you are winning all the games that you are supposed to win.  Not only is that not happening but we are seeing losses that no one ever expected to see.

First it was Tulsa

then South Florida

Northwestern

th-1

and now this!  Louisville

I am really getting tired of Notre Dame being the Disney World of college football.  A college football family vacation destination where everyones dreams come true.

If Brian Kelly does not get the boys ready today on Senior Day to beat the Dirty Birds then he needs replaced.  If you can not be prepared to beat the morally bankrupt Louisville Cardinals then you don’t need to be coaching the Irish.  I really wish Notre Dame would bring in Vikings coach, Mike Zimmer to give the pre game talk and run the defense for the game.

Here is what Zimmer had to say to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer about how he felt about his time in Atlanta with Petrino.

“He came in and said he resigned, he would talk to us all at a later date, walked out of the office and no one has ever talked to him since. Not that anybody wanted to.

“He’s a gutless bastard. Quote that. I don’t give a s**t.” 

When Reedy told Zimmer the newspaper might not be able to use the word “bastard,” Zimmer responded:

“How about this, gutless MF. You can use that.” 

It got better. Zimmer continued talking about Petrino:

“He is a coward. Put that in quotes. He ruined a bunch of people’s lives, a bunch of people’s families, kids, because he didn’t have enough nuts to stay there and finish the job. That’s the truth.” 

When asked if Zimmer had ever had had a sequence like that before in his life (as if?), Zimmer replied:

“No, most people in football have enough courage about them and enough fight to stick through something and not quit halfway through the year. It is cowardly.”

Yeah! What he said!

 

 

Looks like Coach Cal hates the Bumpus hounds also

The crew at KentuckySportsRadio.com ran some great gifs from the Kentucky  vs Kansas game this week and one of them really made me smile.

Now I have no idea what Cal is yelling but all I kept thinking about is this clip from one of my favorite Christmas movies.

GOOOOO IRISH…

Gameday for the Hoosiers, let’s get to know SMU

Posted: November 20, 2014 by jmklee in Uncategorized

Tonight we finally find out what kind of basketball team is down in Bloomington when the 2-0 Hoosiers face their first real competition of the year.  The 1-1 SMU Mustangs gallop into town coming off a beat down at hands of Gonzaga for a 8pm tip that can be seen on BTN.  Let’s take a look at what you need to know about Southern Methodist.

SMU is a private research university in University Park, a separate city inside the borders of Dallas, Texas.  You know, kinda like the Vatican.  SMU has a proud history of bringing us the best of the best in today’s world.  Listed alumni (according to Wiki) includes.

Everyone’s favorite twitter feed.  Jim Irsay

Someone whose only talent is being sisters with someone less talented, Kourtney Kardashian and the ever famous Eric Dickerson’s Trans Am.

Just be glad I could not find a picture of SMU alum, Kathy Bates in the hot tub.  (I didn’t look that hard)

OK, enough nonsense.  Let’s meet the team.

Coach – Larry Brown

_DSC7074You might know him from other teams like; the New Orleans Buccaneers, the Oakland Oaks, Washington Caps, Virginia Squires, Denver Rockets, North Carolina Tar Heals, Carolina Cougars, the Denver Nuggets, UCLA Bruins, New Jersey Nets, Kansas Jayhawks, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, Indiana Pacers, the Philadelphia 76ers, Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks and the Charlotte Bobcats.  Did I miss anyone?

 

Junior PG – Nic Moore

MooreNic is one of a few transfers on this team and got to SMU via Illinois St.  Nic is only 5’9” so it should be a fair fight between him and Yogi.

 

 
Sophomore SG – Keith Frazier

FrazierKeith is a former McDonald’s All-American and is trying to look a lot like Kendall Gill circa 1988.

 

 
Senior SF – Justin Martin

MarinAre you kidding me?  No this can’t be the same guy.  Didn’t he play at Lawrence North in the late 90′s?  Not quite but let’s just put it this way.  Billy Gillespie recruited him to go to Kentucky.  Martin, now 24 years old, has spent time at Mountain St. Academy and Xavier after leaving coach Keefer at LN.  He might have joined the peace corp and took a mission trip to Haiti but I could not confirm.

 

Junior PF – Markus Kennedy

kennedyMarkus is another transfer coming from Villanova whose parents also believe in making us spellings to common names.

 

 
Senior C – Yannic Moeira

MoeiraYannic is isn’t as quite the senior as Martin is but is 23.  It looks like coach Brown went around looking for anyone with eligibility left.  Everyone keeps saying this SMU team is for real and will be a good test for Indiana tonight but one has to think the 8pm tip helps the Hoosiers.  The Mustangs are usually in bed watching Matlock re-runs at this time.
