Preview of #10 Notre Dame at #9 Arizona State

Joe Schmidt‘s surgery was successful — the surgery is a 6-month recovery

Kelly says that Greg Bryant has practiced all week. Sat last weekend with an ankle.

Kelly said clarification on Eilar Hardy is with the NCAA, working to get a final declaration on his eligibility.

Kelly says he’s hopeful Eilar Hardy could be cleared before Saturday and perhaps even before the next few hours.

Kelly says that picking up pressures for his offense is key; defense will face a lot of run/pass conflicts they tried to prepare for today

Kelly says the Irish broke some tendencies last year in win over ASU. Defense changed things up — understandably didn’t discuss how


BK says he’s only heard one fan on the road. @ USC a lady screamed at him the whole game. Says he turned around and she had ND sweatshirt on


Kelly says Drue Tranquill could grow into a linebacker over the long haul, but he’s an “in the box” safety for now. Could be a nickel too.

Kelly says that if a freshman is distracted easily on the road, he’s probably not meant to play in these kind of games.

BK notes Nyles Morgan will make all the calls a la Joe Schmidt. Kelly very confident, knows a hiccup will be present here or there.


Kelly extremely high on Nyles Morgan and his confidence, said Irish did not simplify the D for this week and couldn’t afford to at ASU.

BK says VanGorder got on Morgan in camp in a way that “would make most young men weep.” But Morgan never flinched; wanted to learn football


Kelly says Mike McGlinchey continues to push Christian Lombard, but consistency has kept the 5th year OL ahead.
