Some people will say the'd rather ND have come into Ann Arbor undeafeated.

Not me, I love watching the Irish getting knocked off of their pedestal. 

And I can't wait to make ND 0-2 next week!

Ok and they're free to transfer if they want to.  Its not like this is a new revolation with Kelly, he has yelled everywhere he has been.  This isn't his first season with these players they know what its like and everyone in the recruiting class signed up for it so thats really all there is to it.

all they do  is  breed resentment, the kid in this  gif isn't going to take a lesson from it. All he  will remember is his  coach yelling you can even see in the gif the  kid  turns aside already not  listening and  blowing  off  the coach. This is  one kid that will not listen to this  coach again  position coach yes Kelly not so much. Look at the faces  of the people in the  background. I don't think this  dude will be at ND  much longer either, ND  has  the talent  but they keep getting the wrong guy as  coach it seems

Their turnovers helped pad their stats a little though. They had over 100 yard before USF even touched the ball because of USF's defensive touchdown. At least two of their turnovers were on third downs, so the drive would have ended even if they didn't turn the ball over. Plus, USF was playing with a lead all game. Conservative on offense and playing back on defense. If it was a closer game, I don't think the stats would have been so skewed in ND's favor.

USF drove down the field and kicked field goals on their first three possessions.  Then they sat on a 16-0 lead well into the 3rd quarter.  ND scored, got it back, then after the first Rees interception, USF went 86 yards in 13 plays to ice the game.

I think the numbers reflect that strategy/situation more than any Irish dominance.
