believe the base has forgotten that the core of the 2012 team was comprised largely of, not wholly but largely, Weis' recruits/players. The same core of players, btw, that Kelly blamed for his first 2 years' poor performances; have we forgotten Manti's 'playing for my bros and that's it!!!!' tweet on the heels of the '11 31-17 USC beatdown?
Apparently Kelly finds his typical results (4 out of 5 seasons is the norm, not the 2012 outlier) at ND so odious so as to try and blame them on someone other than himself. If Kelly finds his own results so objectionable, I cannot fathom how Swarbrick finds them either expected or acceptable.
