Brian Kelly will never admit it, but he's trying to accomplish two things by publicly undressing his players during spring drills.

Let everyone know that Charlie Weis ran a loose ship and discipline was not high on the former Irish coach's list.

Provide himself an alibi when the Irish finish 6-6 again (or allow the ND brass offer him a guaranteed 10-year deal when they reach a BCS Bowl).

To be completely up front, this is typical of Kelly. Watching him in the Big East the past few years this is exactly the way he approaches a new job and I believe he will be extremely successful within three years in South Bend.

Have fun guys. It's going to be a long spring.
