Growing up near Grand Valley State, I have watched and rooted for Brian Kelly at all of his stops. Although I think Rich Rod was a good hire, I was hoping Michigan would take a chance on Kelly. He has had a winning program no matter the level. Brian Kelly isn't just a good coach, he is a championship level coach. I have enjoyed watching his success.
But now I must hate him. I have no choice. He is Notre Dame. When you coach Notre Dame football you become Notre Dame. I know hating him is necessary; I am just having a hard time doing it.
I need my fellow Michigan fans to help me out. Give me a reason to despise Brian Kelly. We could always rip into Weis because he was so fat. I have never heard of a better nickname than "Front Butt". Is there some physical feature, or character flaw that we could use as a jumping off point for the purpose of ridicule? I am afraid that my previous admiration for Brian Kelly is clouding up my necessary hate. I'm not proud of it, but admitting so is the first step to recovery.
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
