What a difference a year makes

Expect Brian Kelly to get more done during fall camp than he accomplished in his first season last year.

"What's happened more than anything else is when we come into this camp now, we know our football team so much better," Kelly said during Friday's introductory news conference. "Year two is a year where you're not as concerned about what your personnel are going to do. You know your players. You know what to expect. They know what to expect. It allows you to get to football. It allows you to get to the fundamentals of the game. It allows you to start to look at your scheme, particularly situationally. Those are things I couldn't talk about at this time last year. I was talking about learning the names of our players, knowing their strengths and weaknesses."

The Irish started practice Saturday without senior offensive tackle Lane Clelland and sophomore tailback Cam Roberson, who are both recovering from knee injuries. Otherwise, head athletic trainer Rob Hunt reports the team is in prime physical condition.
