Kelly tweets he had eggs this morning… on his house

It goes without saying that there were more than a few fans of the Cincinnati Bearcats who were slightly miffed when Brian Kelly decided to bolt the Queen City for Touchdown Jesus and the Notre Dame job.

Last night, at least one of them decided to publicly display just how disgruntled and dismayed he/she was over the move.

On his Twitter account early this afternoon, Kelly posted the following:

“Spent most of the morning on the phone with recruits. House got egged last night and the sign on the lawn wasn’t a FOR SALE sign.”

[Why do I get the feeling the next tweet we see from interim UC coach Jeff Quinn will be something along the lines of “Will the next person that sees anybody throw anything onto this house, point ’em out and get ’em out of here. You don’t live in South Bend, you live in Cincinnati!!!“]

As pointed out by SportsByBrooks.com, wide receiver saw this type of “activity” coming when Kelly was surrounded by security at the school’s awards banquet Thursday.

“He never had any security like that before. I mean he already won Coach of the Year before, so all that security wasn’t necessary. I think he was worried about what was going to go on with the city and the fans if anything.”

Reports: Miami hiring Lance Guidry from Tulane as DC

Miami is hiring Lance Guidry, who was defensive coordinator at Marshall last season and recently accepted the same position at Tulane, to lead its defense, two people with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because a deal was still being finalized between Guidry and Miami.

The 51-year-old Louisiana native was hired way from Marshall by Tulane just last month. Now he’ll replace Kevin Steele on Mario Cristobal‘s staff at Miami. Steele is reportedly on his way to Alabama to become Nick Saban‘s defensive coordinator after holding that position for one season with the Hurricanes.

Alabama has yet to make the hiring of Steele and offensive coordinator Tommy Rees official. Rees had been assistant at Notre Dame.

Tulane announced the hiring of Guidry on Jan. 23 to replace Chris Hampton, who left the New Orleans-based school to join Oregon’s staff as an assistant coach.

Guidry’s defenses at Marshall ranked third in the nation in yards per play this season (4.56) and 26th nationally in 2021 (5.14 ypp).

Iowa-Northwestern set for Wrigley Field in November

CHICAGO — Wrigley Field will host a college football game for the third time since 2010 when Iowa plays Northwestern next season.

Northwestern and the Chicago Cubs announced that the Wildcats’ home game will be played Nov. 4.

Northwestern played Illinois at Wrigley in 2010 in the MLB ballpark’s first college football game since 1938, and the Wildcats hosted Purdue there in 2021.

Wrigley Field has a long history of hosting football games. The Chicago Bears played there from 1921 to 1970 before moving to Soldier Field. The old Chicago Cardinals also played at Wrigley, as well as DePaul until its program folded in 1939.

Northwestern had been scheduled to play Wisconsin at Wrigley in 2020, but the game was moved to Ryan Field in Evanston because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
