GVSU to South Bend
Laker Nation knows, and soon Fighting Irish faithful everywhere will know too.
The nation will know...more than they already do.
Former Grand Valley State head football coaches Brian Kelly and Chuck Martin are now leading the charge at the University of Notre Dame. Brian Kelly came from the University of Cincinnati to take charge, and Martin came straight from GVSU where he held an impressive record of 74-7 in his six years as head coach, including two national titles, three title game appearances, and five conference championships.
To Notre Dame, get ready to welcome back football relevancy on a national level within three years. You will be in a BCS game within three years, mark my words. They'll beat USC in two.
To the nation, here come the Irish. Hated by many for whatever reason they can conjure up. No matter the excuse, they'll hate them even more soon.
Kelly was and is the hot commodity in coaching these days. I guess you could say the same for Chris Peterson of Boise State, but I don't think he's going anywhere anytime soon. Whether Kelly turns into the next Urban Meijer success-wise is yet to be seen. That is dependent on a lot of factors. Having seen both men in person, I feel I can safely say that this next decade of Irish football will be fantastic.
Let's go Lakers, and let's go Irish!!
