Yeah, the echoes are sound asleep at Notre Dame.

The Fighting Irish fell to 2-4 on the season after a 10-3 loss at North Carolina State on Saturday. The game was played in downpour as Hurricane Matthew continued to rake the East Coast.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly yelled at center Sam Mustipher during the contest, and then called him out after the game. JJ Stankevitz shared what Kelly said:

Notre Dame fans were not happy with Kelly to begin with (a 2-4 record will get any Fighting Irish coach on the hot seat), but they and others couldn’t believe Kelly threw the center under the bus.
