Brian Kelly, coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, threw unexpected shade at the Big 12 on Saturday.
After beating Navy, 24-17, Kelly talked about how much he loved the style of football displayed in the game.
Actually, that’s not true. Instead, he decided to take a shot at the Big 12 for … playing entertaining football?
Brian Kelly: "if you want to see 62-52, go to your local big 12 network. This was just good tough football."

Did these comments come two weeks after Notre Dame beat Wake Forest 48-37? Yes, they did. Did Notre Dame lose to Miami 41-8 last week? Yes, it did. Did Notre Dame go 4-8 last season? Yes, it did.
The Fighting Irish are 8-2 and ranked No. 8 in the nation, playing their own style of football.
