Kelly knows what Neu feels as Ball State visits No. 8 Irish
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly understands where Ball State coach Mike Neu is this week, what he's facing as the Cardinals visit the eight-ranked Fighting Irish.
In 2005, Kelly was the second-year coach at MAC member Central Michigan when his team prepared to visit Penn State to play Joe Paterno's Nittany Lions before more than 100,000 fans at Beaver Stadium. Kelly's Chippewas fell 40-3.
Indiana, Ball St. begin clean-up duty in Week 2 clash
Kevin Wilson and Mike Neu gleefully walked away with wins last week.
What the Indiana and Ball State coaches both found after watching game tape was far from perfect. They saw all those typical first-game problems — penalties, turnovers, poor decisions, lapses of judgment and overall sloppiness.
So when the two in-state schools meet Saturday in Bloomington, both will be in cleanup mode.
