One of the under-discussed headlines of the Brian Kelly transition is this:
No one left.
Not a single player has transferred. Yes, Tate and Clausen went Pro, but they were going no matter what.
Think about that: not a SINGLE player bailed when a new coach was brought in. And that’s after a mediocre season, a drama-filled search, and on a team that obviously loved their previous coach:
Kelly is doing something right here. Because this isn’t normal in a transition. Look back when RR came to Michigan (sucks). EVERYONE left when that guy came to town. The same could’ve happened to ND and Kelly.
I’m not sure what it is, but whatever he’s doing, it deserves some credit.
