Brian Kelly is intelligent enough to see the writing on the wall--not being in a conference can be a death sentence when it comes to the CFP.

Except it’s moving to 12 teams……

He will finally be allowed to recruit any player he wants and will win a natty, he’s a heckuva coach.

Maybe 8 but probably not 12.And even then something would have to be done with either the conference championship games or making independents like Notre Dame play some sort of extra play in game.

If they ever come to terms...“It’s 12 or back to four,” one athletic director with knowledge of the discussions told SI.

Would not have believed it yesterday, but wow. He is in for some culture shock. Seemed like a perfect fit at ND and Coach O seemed the perfect Bayou Bengal. Oh well, hope no one poaches Coach V.

He has finally gotten ND to the point of perennial top 10 team and his recruiting is the best it’s been. Maybe also he just wants a change and 12 years is enough. Definitely leaving the program in excellent shape and a full cupboard.

LSU panicked when Riley left them standing at the altar. They felt they had to make a big splash to wash the egg off their face when the real USC swooped in and stole their bride.

Agreed. Just can’t see him as a fit for that culture and fan base.***

Brian Kelly's track record indicates he will win. He was recruiting at an elite level at Notre Dame, which isn't easy.

With playoff expansion and a big raise, this is a good move for him. It tells me he doesn't think Notre Dame can win a national championship. Simply getting to the playoff is probably the ceiling for them, whereas LSU has proven it will do whatever it takes to win the big trophy.

Too much is being made out of him not being Cajun or "one of them."

Ed O was the embodiment of everything LSU is and they told him to hit the road 18 months after winning the natty.

Not sure that makes sense.

So he was recruiting at an “elite level” at ND but making the playoffs was the ceiling (not winning the national championship)?

What was standing in their way once they made the playoffs? Certainly couldn’t have been the “elite level” recruiting. I mean, all those guys didn’t just suddenly suck when they made the playoffs.

It was coaching. Brian Kelly chokes on big games.

LSU fans are going to hate him. And that’s what I meant about him being a bad fit (not about where he’s from).

Notre Dame doesn't have the same facilities and their academics are a hurdle. That he had Notre Dame competing where they were was a minor miracle. There's a reason they only had 1 bowl win between 1993-2010.

At LSU, he's going to have access to better recruits -- the kind of players he could never dream of landing at Notre Dame -- plus the commitment of a school that doesn't rest on its laurels of "being Notre Dame" and thinking that matters to 17-year-old high school kids.

Maybe Kelly won't win a national championship but he's closer at LSU than he will ever be at Notre Dame. There's only one program in America the last 3 HCs have won the national title. It's LSU.

The fans will inevitably turn on him and be unhappy but they're perpetually angry down there. That comes with the territory. Kelly took on this challenge because it's a better gig than Notre Dame. He's not backing down from a tougher path to the playoff because just getting there isn't the goal.

Most likely coach LSU 2-3 years and make his 20-30mil and call it a career. SEC teams start the season with a loss to Bama’ or UGA in the title game, and Napier will most likely have FLA rolling again. One slip in the regular season and thats 2 losses and no playoff, unless the playoff expands.
