Brian Kelly transfers without penalty to Notre Dame

Through the smiling Irish eyes of an Armenian-American fan, Notre Dame still can be what it used to be. Ara Parseghian, 86, rages against the notion that Saturday afternoons in South Bend are as outdated as your grandmother’s rotary phone.
Parseghian understands that Brian Kelly is not walking through the door with the Four Horsemen and Grantland Rice at his side. He understands that college football has undergone a radical transformation, that the proliferation of media outlets has introduced high school stars to a whole new world of options and stripped Notre Dame of its only-game-in-town feel.
