Two Minute Drill: Temple Vs. Notre Dame Preview


The Notre Dame Fighting Irish eked out a victory against the Temple Owls after a completion by quarterback DeShone Kizer to Will Fuller with two minutes remaining put them in position to score. The 24-20 win was too close for comfort for Notre Dame, a situation that seemed to send coach Brian Kelly over the edge as he was caught manhandling assistant strength and conditioning coach and former Fighting Irish wide receiver David Grimes on the sidelines.




Now that the dust has settled, Kelly apparently has a perfectly logical explanation. Kelly ran over to Grimes in order to "control the sideline." Kelly explained in the postgame press conference, "David was going to get us a 15-yard penalty... I wasn't going to let that happen. He got a little too close, and I backed him up out of the way to make sure we didn't get a 15-yard penalty."

From the video, however, it seemed the situation was already under control, when Kelly stormed in with an extra dose of Gregy Hardy-style "leadership" and "inspiration," grabbing Grimes' coat up near his neck and shoving him. Strength and conditioning coordinator Paul Longo stepped in to control the man who was controlling the sideline, intervening along with defensive tackle Sheldon Day to separate Kelly and Grimes. Defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder is also in the video, appearing intentionally oblivious to the skirmish unfolding beside him.

Kelly is known for his fiery temper and has had other emotional events on the sidelines over the years, earning himself the nickname the Angry Leprechaun.




Sounds about right.
