Did Kelly Complain About Fake Injury AFTER UM Called Timeout?

Did anyone else see this?  Did Brian Kelly complain to the refs that Kinnel was faking an injury to stop the clock, AFTER UM had called a timeout?  What a dick Kelly is.

I've actually been bringing up the lobotomy point myself. Something has happened to him. The old Jim Harbaugh would have reacted to Braylon calling out his players by name by ripping Braylon's eyeballs and pissing on his brain. Today's Jim Harbaugh said in a flat-affect monotone "it wasn't factually accurate" or something along those lines.

What the hell has happened to Jim. Today, if Pete Carroll asked him "What's your deal?" he'd reply "I'm not sure what you mean, would you mind repeating that so I can better understand your inquiry?"

We need a Harbaugh somewhere in between insane and lobotomized.  I don't mind that he doesn't take the bait from a Twitter troll, regardless of whether or not that Twitter troll caught a lot of passes in a Michigan uniform. 

I do mind that he doesn't go nuts on the sidelines anymore, ever, at all, for any reason.  Occasionally a player, or even a ref, needs a little bit of an ass-chewing, like, immediately, upon screwing up.  Less going bonkers every time they call holding on your guy is fine; being emotionally flat when your team needs a fire lit under their asses is not.  His team needed a fire lit under their asses on Saturday.

As I posted, which you clearly did not read: "Seriously, what else is there to complain about at that point in the game?"

They didn't get the first down.  He didn't want to give the ball back with a full 2 minutes, and surely not with 2 minutes and a timeout  He must have concluded that Kinnel was faking an injury.  Even after the timeout was announced over the public address system.  I bet the line judge even told Kelly that UM had called a timeout. 

Again, what else is there to complain about at that point in the game?

From one gesture you can tell all of that? I don't even think the clock stops permanently. I think the clock stops on the referees whistle. Like you said, Michigan was using a timeout. So your argument doesn't really hold water. I don't know what he could have been complaining about and I'm not going to look back and see what happened during prior plays.

He’s clearly wrong.  Notre Dame played a great game.  The QB dropped a couple of passes on a dime in solid coverage and another WR took away an interception from our backup safety.  Our players were in the right spot to succeed, they just came up against a team that was playing better on that night.  It had nothing to do with coaching.

in the run up to the game, had we told you that Wimbush would pass that well, especially in the first half, no one would have given us a chance.  If ND can play that well every game, they will finish at least in the top ten if not top 5. We lost to a good team, we will see how the rest of the season plays out.

I hate losing to guys like Kelly, Urban, Dantonio and the list goes on. I keep thinking certainly we will eventually get our time since we do not have Dbag coaches like them.

Precisely. And while I agree in this instance, OSU approves this message as well.

Investigator: "Urban, between you and I, totally off the record, why'd you delete those texts?"

Urban: "I dont know, how about fuck you I'm a good coach."

Investigator: "True, right, how about we say... *writes in notepad* ...memory loss..."

Edit: thought you were talking about an earlier event. 

I thought it was the refs gave Michigan an injury timeout even though our guy got off the field under his own power.

Michigan definitely didn't call a TO though, because we used all 3 to get the ball back for the final drive.

He did.  Probably didn't see the timeout but then his demeanor softened after the ref said Michigan took a timeout.  But then we didn't take a timeout so fuck Kelly, I'm glad it worked out that way.  All in all I think that's a fairly typical opposing coach (except for Harbaugh, of course) response to that situation.

Brian Kelly is an ass for so many reasons beyond that small example.
