Kelly impressed with Wolverine players, coach

Thursday, September 05, 2013 12:38 am
Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly addressed his team's upcoming game at Michigan (8 p.m. Saturday, ESPN) with the media on Tuesday.Here are some of the topics Kelly addressed:"Michigan is) a very talented team. Brady (Hoke) does a great job, as you know, a team that - I don't know the numbers particularly - I don't know if they've lost at home since he's been the head coach there.""(They are) Led by Devin Gardner. He's done a nice job. He reminds me of Randall Cunningham back there. He can throw it, he's tall, he's athletic, runs the ball very well.""Jeremy Gallon, he's wearing No. 21 (so) I think we all know what that means. He's an outstanding wide receiver, a big time playmaker.

"(Their) outstanding tight end, Devin Funchess, he's got great size, can go up and get the football."A number of running backs led by Fitzgerald Toussaint, who's a veteran.

"And obviously one of the best, if not the best offensive lineman, in (left tackle) Taylor Lewan on the offensive line.

"A lot of offensive players, great depth and they utilize their weapons.""They do a lot of things. They'll bring pressures (and) they give you multiple looks. They're difficult to defend.

"Obviously Jibreel Black is a guy that I'm very familiar with, outstanding player out of Cincinnati of Ohio. He's a very active defensive lineman. Again, a guy that's played a lot of football for them.""Cam Gordon (is an) outstanding backer and they just play hard. They're very active. They're very good tacklers on the back end of the defense, and like I said, they create a lot of different looks for you defensively.""It'll be a great matchup. We were there two years ago and obviously very disappointed in the outcome. It's a great atmosphere. Should be a great college football game."
