I don't know a lot about Kelly personally, but I do know he can coach football having seen firsthand his GVSU and CMU teams. I also don't know much about him covering for his players anymore than any other coach does. I do know that I haven't seen him go off like that before, and in my very limited experience with coaches (through basketball) the only time we I ever got yelled at like that it was because I was playing lax. I was singled out at halftime and it was personal, and I responded by playing one of the best halfs of my career even though I was almost brought to tears at half. The only question I would have of Kelly is if this berating is consistent. In my experience in watching his teams, he seems balanced in giving criticism and praise, and there are several instances where he has fought for his players. Everyone has a bad day, and there is no doubt he probably went overboard, but it's no surprise to see many died in the wool Michigan fans go overboard in response. I fully expect ND to be ready next week. Kelly is not the first coach to rip a player on national TV, hell, Woody beat his players! The one thing I like about our staff at Michigan is that they teach, prepare and adjust. I think M will be ready next week, and to hell with ND anyway.
still not over it in South Bend
