08:24 AM ET 02.17 | Forgive Notre Dame fans for wondering when the Brian Kelly offense will come to town, a question whose answer has a lot to do with Chuck Martin. [Martin is tasked with] handing over the car keys of the offense to the man who can elevate the Irish to the next level following consecutive 8-5 seasons. Maybe it's junior Tommy Rees, 12-4 as a starter through nearly two seasons. Or junior Andrew Hendrix, who showed flashes of potential in spot duty last season. ... Everett Golson's redshirt season naturally made him the most popular choice among clamoring fans. And early enrollee Gunner Kiel, a prized prospect from Columbus, Ind., has been deemed the biggest recruit the Irish have landed thus far in the Kelly era.

The 2012 schedule is challenging-should be interesting. Furnace Face's butt could get warm this year if the QB position doesn't produce better results.

Brian Kelly is a poor-man's Charlie Weis. He recruits well enough (though not as well as Weis), but he can't get out of his own way on the sideline. He tries to get too cute with his playcalling. He doesn't coach his players to learn from their mistakes and stop doing the same stupid crap over and over again. He looks like an **** berating kids as they come off of the field. Alienates players that were there when he took over. He's just a bafoon.

Their most pressing issue is to stop that guy from smelling Kelly's hair.

Yes that's an impressive schedule. Stanford, OU, Michigan, Michigan State, Miami ... even USC!

Bubububububuttttt, they don't have a murderer's row conference schedule so they don't need a LSOP on the schedule. Unless BYU, Navy, Purdue, Pitt, BC and Wake are considered LSOPs.

Heh, for what it's worth Navy is being played in Dublin Ireland.

but lost to lowly UTx
