Everyone says Kelly left the program better than he found it, but they forget that Kellys initial success was based largely on what Chatlie had recovered from the ashes of the Ty fire. Charlie was a failure, but his initial success got the Gug built and put ND back on the list for recruits. Kelly parlayed that into a stadium expansion and expanded facilities.

Fact of the matter is that Kelly managed to coast on by. He managed to dodge a firing halfway through his time here. He marginally raised the floor.

I simply ask what did Kelly really do to leave the program better? He offered excuses and used the program as a piggy bank until he was forced to clean up his mess enough to save face and get the hell out before the house of cards fell in again.
