No reason to be a pompous ass, with proper funding and stability, UC might get there again. No need to put down our program.
roll tide roll.
Kfp... That's EXACTLY what he was after... and he knows it. He's a troll, pure and simple.
Ps. Love the line "Brian Kelly took Cincinnati to places they've never been before and probably ever will." Sadly this is what I consider a typical response for Irish fans... Why you feel like you can come over here and say it is beyond me, but whatever floats your boat, dude. It still doesn't make me love or hate BK any more than I did a few minutes ago. It probably doesn't register in your tiny little universe, but I root for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats. They are who I root for.
ND doesn't factor. With or without Brian Kelly. I really could care less who wins the BCS championship game.
I hate ND because they are a Catholic institution in name only, having forgotten they are supposed to follow the teachings of the Church.
And I think Kelly is good football coach but also a snake oil salesman.
Didn't mean to word it that way just trying to make a point. You guys should be rooting for him for where he took your program, but at the same time you should be rooting against him for leaving the way he did.
I just wanted to see what your guys' viewpoint was about this having mixed emotions.

No issue with Kelly, other than his exit and media drama. Very high maintenance. Skeleton crew coaching staff in the Sugar.
By the way out MLB and TE our better than ND's.
How do you know UC has reached it's pinnacle?
Are you now the oracle of football past, present and future.
If so you already know that Bama's gonna crush the Irish.
No troll no flame
You guys simply don't compete in recruiting to be BCS quality every year. Kelly focuses on player attributes better than any coach in the country.
ND Alumni fans are folks I like. I know many in Cincy. The non grad fans rub people the wrong way.
South Bend is a dump but most ND fans have never been there. No dog in the fight, best team hopefully wins.

No troll, no flame... Riiiiiigggghtt... LOL
Isn't it past your bedtime? LOL!
It has been an entire coaching cycle (3 years ) since BK, so I'm over that.
But, I'm no ND fan anyway. Not a Tide fan either.
In short - don't care.
^^^ What's this guys problem
Wow really. Is the inferiority complex here really that bad?
You asked the question and I simply answered it truthfully. Tell me what I did wrong.
Looks like you have one of those. Let me guess, you have an IU basketball sweatshirt also? Region Rat from Valpo
or S Bend?
You haven't done anything wrong. But you insinuated that I did something wrong...
I'm from Toledo, Ohio...
I generally have no feelings toward ND or Ohio State or most teams of that sort. However, "fans" like you make it really easy for anyone to hate on your program and root against your team. You should really check your arrogance (which why would you even have any arrogance since YOU haven't done anything but sit and watch the team, you haven't done anything) at the door if you would like to have a truly productive conversation.
I'm confused...my arrogance?
What arrogance are you referring to?
Sometimes you just need to clear your head!
Well, this is where you go over the top. "He took you guys to places you'll never be again"
So, I guess you can tell the future? ND finally gets lucky and on the map but is about to find out they are not on SEC level. I expect a beating. Give Kelly time and he can usually come up with a plan. However, he cannot makeup for the talent level. As for Kelly, most of us have moved on. Do we root for the guy? No. It is not because he left. It's HOW he left. Now you started off with a suspect question as others have mentioned and then you quite frankly became an ..... well, we try to be nice on this board. For the record, Kelly came here and won with Dantonio's players. We were already moving on the map. Now if he does win the Championship, he probably leaves for the NFL and then ND returns to mediocre again. We have at least had success consistently. UC will be fine. Obviously not looked at like ND or OSU but we are fine and on the field can hang with anyone.
Does that mean you wear a dress around, like Toledo's most famous resident?
