Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly Sunday Teleconference: Louisville Week


The Notre Dame Fighting Irish dropped their third straight this week, losing to No. 24 Louisville Cardinals 31-28. Kyle Brindza’s shot at a game-tying field goal sailed wide right, the first Senior day loss in Kelly’s tenure. Here are the highlights from the teleconference.

On the missed kick:

The Irish are beat up, especially on the defensive side of the ball, as removing the redshirt status from Hayes shows. There is no “free agent” pool to pull from. They will look to stabilize and finish with a victory against rival Southern Cal, then leave their fate to the selection committee on where they might play in a bowl game.
