Scraping The Bottom Of The Notre Dame News Barrel

Well it’s pretty much comes down to this, scraping the bottom of the barrel for Blog posts.  Most of the SAS staff is on vacation (Green Line) or are in a funk waiting for August 6 and the start of Fall Football Camp.  I am reduced to stealing and cutting and pasting from the NDNation Bulletin Boards. 
Here are two items that I plucked off the Ethernet:
The unexpected retirement of Jim Tressel moved Brian Kelly up to number 4 among active head coaches in winning percentage, just behind Paterno. Kelly also advanced to sixth in wins.  Unfortunately some dumb AD is going to give Jim a second chance, you just wait and see.


1. Bob Stoops, Oklahoma......806

2. Gary Patterson, TCU.......778

3. Jim Tressel, Ohio State...751

4. Joe Paterno, Penn State...747

5. Brian Kelly, Notre Dame...741
 This is one tough question.  You have to really know Notre Dame Football.  It even stumped the Wizard.
Stolen from NDNation Cartier Field Bulletin Board posted by “Olson.”
6 Opponent Head Coaches have won at least 8 games against Notre Dame during their respective careers.  Two of these 6 coaches are tied for the most coaching victories over ND with 10.

Name all 6-highlighting the two with the most wins all time vs. Notre Dame.  Answers below, no fair peeking!

10 wins: Mollenkopf (Purdue)10-4; Daugherty (Mich. St) 10-7-1
9 wins: Paterno (Penn St) 9-6
8 wins: Robinson (USC) 8-3-1, McKay (USC) 8-6-2, Carroll (USC) 8-1

7 wins Howard Jones (Iowa & USC) 6-8-1 at USC and 1-0 at Iowa
5 wins O'Brien (BC), Carr (Mich),Sutherland (Pitt)
The only piece of news besides Romeo Okwara becoming recruit number 12 (see left side of Blog) is that apparently Brian Kelly and Notre Dame are going to host a ton of recruits for the ND-USC game and weekend.  It will be sweet when we knock USC off for the second time in a row in front of all those recruits.
