I was just listening to WDFN and Sean Baligian announced that Irisheyes.com was reporting that Brian Kelly would be named the new head coach at ND today.
I went to Irisheyes.com and didn't see anything but it may be in their premium forum.
this trick of "actual" media outlets reporting things by saying "KELLY IN AT ND (according to internet)" so they get all the splash but don't have to take any blame is getting irritating.
This is now being reported by NDExpertzBlog.biz. It has to be true.
well, they are "expertz"
My guess is this is just another one of the outlets piling on that IrishCentral report from yesterday. A few newspapers report this website is saying this, whether it's true or not, and then it snowballs.
Skip should be fine until his teeth fall out
I had forgotten about fooballscoop.com, good times.
2 hours before the Miami HC was announced they said he had been eliminated as a candidate, good times
He WAS removed as a candidate by being hired! See, it's all in the interpretation.
I wonder how credible that site is. They seems to say they have insider info into almost every coaching search. For ND they say:
Sources tell us that the center of the search for Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick is with Skip Holtz (East Carolina Head Coach), Randy Edsall (UConn Head Coach) and Jim Harbaugh (Stanford Head Coach).
My guess is not very credible.
The sad thing is, even the website doesn't claim that it's a done deal. The headline is practically a lie. The body of the article says "according to an insider, Kelly is the leading candidate" and it doesn't even claim inside info of an actual deal being done. It's a blatant ploy to get page hits and it has worked beautifully.
...a lot of chatter today for Kelly. True or not something is going on. I wouldn't be surprised at anything right now
According to this blog, I think it's true...maybe.
Found this link to another link saying he is staying per the Cincinnati Enquirer. The problem is when you follow the link to the Cincy Enquirer website, it says page not found. Who F***ing knows.
And then there's this:
I'm a proud Irish-American, do I qualify? I don't have front butt, so that is a strike against me.
Sits out there as a coaching salary negotiator's dream.
