Here are some of our favorite photos of the Notre Dame head coach yelling his face off.
Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly had a bad first weekend of college football. Not only did the Notre Dame-USF game get delayed a few hours due to lightning, but his team lost, despite outgaining South Florida by 300 yards (but they turned the ball over five times). Which really seemed to tick off the Notre Dame coach, because he kept screaming til his face nearly exploded on the sideline. Here are a few of our favorite Brian Kelly yelling photos.

They're the teams within the team - those cohesive little units bound together by their shared responsibilities within the larger team context.
Whether it's the offensive linemen firing off time after time into those familiar blocking sleds, or the defensive linemen drilling repeatedly on how to shed blockers, or the defensive backs breaking on ball after ball - these teams in miniature hone their tasks on the practice field until those tasks become second nature.
When the preseason magazines and polls are released every year, no team generates as much discussion as Notre Dame. The Irish are one of the most polarizing teams in college football, and the hype for 2011 has already started - Athlon Sports has projected the Irish to finish No. 6 in the nation.
