07:21 AM ET 08.16 | The mutual admiration society is alive and well in South Bend. [Earlier this week,] Brian Kelly dropped a head-turning quote when he offered that he wouldn't trade defensive lineman Sheldon Day "for anybody on our football team right now." Apprised of those comments a half-hour later, Day returned the love. "That's great to know," Day said, "and I wouldn't trade him for any other head coach." ... [Considering] who lines up next to Day on the defensive front -- national award candidates Louis Nix and Stephon Tuitt, not to mention the collection of four- and five-star talent that adorns the roster -- Kelly's words carry a heck of a lot of significance and give strong hope that this year's defense can be as good or better than last year's stingy unit.

Not yet....I'll get there, though.

Mods must be UTK grads. Any other 4-8 team get as many threads at Tenn?

Ahhh, there it is -- pairing "pull my finger" with "staying power"...


Excellent work right there, LOL. I may quote that one in the Ice Haus outhouse.

Would you rather him talk about the wrongful death or rape case that got swept under the rug, even after the suicide?

IMHO, there are much worse ND conspiricy theories that he could have gone with....

Okay, I'll remember that, thanks!!!

Key words are "right now": he's as sincere as Ryan Braun.
