According to reports by The Athletic, Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly is leaving the Fighting Irish high and dry smack in the middle of a possible shot at a National Championship. Kelly is bolting from South Bend, Indiana and heading to Baton Rouge to lead the LSU Tigers for a bundle of cash.
The Colonial Athletic Conference has produced such NFL greats as Howie Long (Villanova), Joe Flacco (Delaware), Charles Haley (James Madison), Darren Sharper (William & Mary) and scores of others. 36 CAA players were on NFL rosters at the start of last football season, including former UAlbany Great Dane, Jarron Williams. Many of them, including Williams, played at Tom & Mary Casey Stadium while still in college. All the more reason to support the UAlbany Great Danes by purchasing a couple of season tickets.
