From Brian Kelly’s latest press conference:
Q. Related to the Stanford rivalry, I think this is the fifth straight year you guys are ranked going into the game. Had some close finishes the last couple of years. But why do you think, outside of these two programs, nationally it’s not really talked about amongst some of the other rivalries around the nation coming up this weekend. Seems to fly under the radar despite all the characteristics and commonalities in the program.
COACH KELLY: It’s a shame because both of them have incredible graduation rates as well. I think it should be talked a lot more about, you know — probably because it doesn’t have some of the names that are — it’s not Bedlam. It’s not those kinds of names that — the Iron Bowl.
We’ve got to make up a name. I think it’s up to you guys to come up with a name for this game so we can get in with the in crowd, and then I think people will pay more attention to it. So it’s pretty much the media’s fault (laughter).
Coach Kelly, we have the answer for you. From Hammer (@atxprogress) :
I like “Boss Bowl”, as in your boss probably went to one of these two schools.
There it is. Good luck to Notre Dame in the Boss Bowl this weekend. Go Irish!
