According to a report from MLive.com (and also reported late last night by Keith Arnold), Brian Kelly was speaking at Grand Valley dinner in Grand Rapids (his first head coaching stop). At the dinner, he had the following to say about Notre Dame’s QB situation:
“We always move forward,” Kelly said. “I don’t live in the past, and I don’t spend too much time in the future. I live in the present, and in the present, we have Tommy Rees. We have Tommy Rees, who is an established player, and he will be our starter. We think Andrew Hendrix and Malik Zaire can contribute, but Tommy will be our starter.”
Tommy Rees will spend his senior year leading the Irish and, somewhere, GrantlandX is going HAM to kick off the summer.
Personally, I still have some scars from the 2011 season; however, Rees did have some solid, and very clutch moments, to help the Irish secure a 12-0 season in 2012. So file me under cautious optimism…
…and put me down for an order of several bottles of whiskey to be safe.
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
