Brian Kelly is the winningest active coach in CFB (263-96-2 between D1 and D2 stops).
If Scott Woodward was shooting for someone with a lengthy track record, his winning percentage sits behind only Nick Saban’s when you’re talking about coaches who have been around 15+ years.

For years, Brian Kelly had teams that basically played to their recruiting level at ND. I understand the logic of bringing him to a school that can sign top-3 classes.
.........don't know if it'll WORK, it could be an AMAZING disaster, but I understand the logic at least.

Struggling to think of a bolder example of “what if we hire the complete opposite of the last guy” than Brian Kelly replacing Ed Orgeron.

Brian Kelly is a SOLID hire, it is not be the sexiest but his track record at Cincy and ND is IMPECCABLE
Super high floor with potential to finally break through the glass ceiling That has held him down
Also this def makes the Riley stuff seem not real

Brian Kelly is already the winningest coach at ND
His legacy was secured in South Bend
What's left for a Hall of Fame Coach? To win a title
He's seen first hand that in order to win a title in today's CFB environment you need a different tier of players.
He'll get that at LSU

While the other 49 states use common law, Louisiana's legal system is unique in that it operates under civil law derived from Napoleonic Code. This might actually significantly impact the legality of Brian Kelly executing his players.

Brian Kelly looks like he thinks Sprite is too spicy how is he a culture fit for LSU

Brian Kelly is so underrated. He’s had a top five program at Notre Dame the last five years with recruiting restrictions and he’s gonna kill it with LSU’s advantages.
