Actually, a point to be made, and a question to be asked.

[1]  One of the biggest and most pleasant changes I've seen in our offense this year---and you have to look hard to see it, given that on big plays most eyes are on the ball carrier---is our downfield blocking. Everyone---from Jake, Khalid and Devin to Amara, Jehu and Grant, among others, are in on the act.  Shoving corners and safeties out of the way long enough to add 10-15 yards to the play. Note I said [pleasant] "change", not "surprise"... nothing of improvement/quality is surprising with Jimbo's staff.

[2] Why, I ask you all---would anyone would to be associated in any frickin' capacity with Brian Kelly?  Player, assistant coach, administrative staff, anything?  How can a person who blames everyone but himself for his program's failures and shortcomings keep his job???   I mean, mother of Christ, it's a fact---and I've always felt it, ranging from governments of nations to the Penn State scandal---in a hierarchical structure, the man at the top takes the [ultimate] credit---or blame.  
Except at Notre Dame, apparently...
Stanford's strength coach?  How long before he goes off on opponents' team physicians?

Kelly is a scum bag. I've known that since his Grand Valley days.

Totally agree Mike. Downfield blocking was a point of emphasis for Bo's teams and is now for Jim's team. Kelly will have to take a step back for his next job. His future is not bright IMO.

Not only downfield blocking but when we run wide our pulling linemen are also blocking very well at the point of attack.

And I think it's time to stop complaining about Kalis. I think he's doing a pretty good job in there.

Too bad it took 4 years for him to grow.

Kalis had to overcome 3 years of subpar coaching.
