That specific Tweet is poking fun at comments Kelly made earlier in the week in which he insinuated schools should be thankful for the opportunity to play Notre Dame in South Bend.
“I think I’ve got games scheduled with Central Michigan as well coming up,” Kelly said during his weekly press conference Monday. “Just wanted to give those schools an opportunity, if there was an opening on our schedule and anytime we have those negotiations, the opportunity to play Notre Dame. Usually, those schools are wanting to do that. When Jack and myself and Ron Powlus sit down to talk about openings, I just thought it would be, for me, an opportunity to give those schools that gave me an opportunity, a chance to play Notre Dame.”
The official Twitter account for Cincinnati athletics got in on the fun as well, Tweeting an edited series of clips from Kelly’s time as the Bearcats’ head coach. Kelly guided Cincinnati to a 34-6 overall record, with two New Year’s Six bowl appearances, from 2007-09 (plus one game in 2006) before taking the Notre Dame job.
Included in the montage are clips of Kelly praising Cincinnati’s offense, various big wins and the nation learning about Cincinnati.
Big win for the Bearcats in South Bend!
