|"$#%!!!! How you gone tell me what I can't do, homeboy!"|
George Orwell once said, “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” The older sisters in the church used to say, “Baby, just tell the truth and shame the devil!” The only reason that you keep up with Ya Boy is because Ima keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Like Big Momma used to say, “Ima tell it like is sho nuff T.I.S.!”
For years I’ve been blasting the University of Notre Dame for being the most delusional program in sports. You’ve heard my rants on sports radio shows, read the Hot Joints or both! “Notre Dame is no longer your father’s Notre Dame!” As much as it sickens me to say, Brian Kelly should be the Coach of the Year and the Coach of the freaking Decade! He’s done what most people and including Ya Boy, ten fold, thought could never be done again. He’s resurrected Notre Dame from the ashes and has these boyz sitting on top of the college football world again! Ranked #1 going into the final game of the season against dull USC without Matt Barkley, I might add!
For years I’ve said, “Either you want the NBC contract and keep all of the money or you want to play in a BCS bowl and possibly the national title game. You can’t have both. You need to join a conference because it would be much easier that way!" Wrong! “By continuing to be an independent you put your team at a constant disadvantage because if by chance they lose just one game (and God forbid it’s an early loss), they have absolutely nothing to play for the rest of the season. It’s either all or nothing at Notre Dame and how do you sell that to an 18 year old recruit?” Win games! How do you do that? Coach the hell out of your players like Brain Kelly did!
“The Fighting Irish wants to be an academic powerhouse and a football powerhouse at the same time. You can’t be both unless you decide to move into the Ivy League.” Wrong! “ND can’t get the players that the state schools have access too. When you look at the top 150 recruits in the country, the Irish can only talk to about 30 of them because of the academic requirements. Other schools like Florida State, Alabama, Oklahoma, LSU, Ohio St etc can talk to all of them and will sign maybe 12 or 13 of them every year. Now what happens when ND shows up to play one of them and they’ve got 60(12x5 yrs of recruiting for example) of the best players in the country and the Irish only have 3?” Beat the doors off of Oklahoma in Norman 30-13!
“A player coming out of high school now is 17 or 18 years old and wasn’t even born when you won your last title in 1988. How can you compete on the recruiting trail?” They couldn’t compete! However, they got players that bought into the Notre Dame mystique, Touchdown Jesus etc and simply went out and won 11 games this year! Now he can compete on the recruiting trail for years to come homeboy!
I also said, “The Fighting Irish have to be able to recruit the elite (top 150) African-American athlete. They thought that Paul Hornung (ND 1956 Heisman Trophy winner) was some crazy old dude a few years ago when he told them the same thing.” They still don’t have all of those guys but the studs that they do have want to play for Brian Kelly. Now they look like the elite Joe's that he couldn't sign! So did he or didn't he sign them? I think he may have, pimpin'! Don't fool yourself with that! The Notre Dame defense had 37 SEC scholarship offers. So these boyz can play!
“In order to win, you’ve got to go where the best players are, and that’s down South or out West to California and boyz from warm weather climates aren't coming to South Bend.” Well, he retained one of the best linebackers in the country in Manti Te’o, who’s from Hawaii, although Charlie Weis recruited him. Then he went down to South Carolina bumpin' that Do or Die, "Do You Wanna Ride" and swooped up Everett Golson. He just told him that all snow is, is frozen rain and they make coats for that bruh! Come on up here and we’ll make sure Big Momma see’s you on TV every week! Remember that NBC contract that I told you that they couldn't have and win too? Yeah that joint came in handy! ESPN/ABC has taken care of the all of the rest of the road games for them! So Big Momma didn't have to leave to crib to see her baby play!
Win or lose this week Brain Kelly has done more than Lou Holtz post 1988, Bob Davie, Ty Willingham, dull Charlie Weis or any other coach in America could even have imagined doing under those circumstances. If he doesn’t win the Coach of the Year its HIGHWAY ROBBERY! Brian Kelly and that freaking Leprechaun that stole our Sooner Schooner made me write this joint against my will by winning 11 games this year. They forced me to drink the TRUTH SERUM bruh! So if you will excuse me, I have to throw up!
Holla At Ya Boy!
