Losing a month of valuable recruiting time is not in the best interests of both Brian Kelly and Notre Dame's future, saying anything they've done is wrong is simply foolish imo.
You absolutely 100% correct. Sticking with Cincy through the bowl game would have cost him valuable recruiting time.
But the truth is signing day is MONTHS away, and HS kids swap loyalties all the time. Besides, you dont think if he helped Cincy BEAT UF then left and started pulling recruits it wouldnt have helped ND even more than the extra month? I think they were afraid he would get beat by UF, so they made him leave early....
Nobody is arguing that what he did wasnt in the best interest of ND and Kelly, the problem is he shoot on Cincy. In the NFL these antics wouldnt be tolerated, but in CF its the norm.
