Notre Dame’s defense did not have a good day. No, not at all.
So naturally, Irish defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder got ripped for it. Coach Brian Kelly had no problem doing that.
VanGorder is anything but a fan favorite in South Bend. He’s in his second year as defensive coordinator, and third overall with Notre Dame.
