I find this story both ridiculous and tragic. The sad truth is that some areas in Mexico close to the border are becoming extremely dangerous with drug wars. But is this really what players would be doing right before a bowl game? I figured the coaches would have a pretty tight leash on these kids, even interim coaches at Miami-- unless the Miami players arrive with their camouflage again, in which case they wouldn't get caught.
A very odd story -- but probably an essential precaution. Also you can't blame Kelly for acting too cautious considering the tragedies that have hit ND this season.
