Kelly wants Notre Dame keeping bar at title height
January 6, 2013
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Win or lose, Notre Dame's Brian Kelly doesn't want his team aiming any lower than the national championship game in the future.
Kelly said Sunday ``it's unacceptable for the standard to be any less than being back here again.'' First things first, his top-ranked Fighting Irish will face No. 2 Alabama Monday night hoping for their first national title since 1988.
Kelly has been in national title games before. He led Division II Grand Valley State to championships in 2002 and 2003. For the last one, the team stayed mostly unnoticed in a Best Western and there was so much less buildup that it ``was just another game.''
He says ``it's a totally different feeling for this one.''
As for his pregame message, Kelly says he typically goes 80 percent by what he senses from his team.
