|This is really sad. I'm serious. The kid knew that he was going to die.|
A big gust of wind blew the lift over and Sullivan fell 50 feet onto a street and died. A very sad story that didn't HAVE to end this way. Let's bring in Captain Hindsight along with Coon and Friends to analyze the situation:
"If the lift says not to go up on it when the wind is stronger than 25 mph, you probably shouldn't go up with winds of 50 mph."
I'm just going to come out and say it, this is Brian Kelly's fault and he should pay for this somehow. There is NO REASON to practice outdoors in weather like that. You aren't getting better that day in those conditions. And even if you do go outside, why are you putting other people in danger? It doesn't take a fucking rocket scientist to see that that kid swaying up in the air is in trouble and probably shouldn't be there. And really, it's two months into the season. Do you really need to still tape practice?
I don't know if Kelly could be charged with reckless endangerment or involuntarily manslaughter or anything else classified as criminal behavior. But what I do know is that from what I've read about this, he should be charged with something. The retard AD at Notre Dame blamed it on a big gust of wind. This is THEIR fault. They run this show and thus are responsible for everyone fairly or not. Should someone do jail time? I don't know. But I do know that a kid died on their watch and, like it or not, Kelly, Swarbrick, and Notre Dame are all to blame. And they most definitely WILL pay for this. That whole NBC deal? Yeah, it's going to the Sullivan family.
You know, maybe saying that Brian Kelly should be sent to Leavenworth is a bit extreme. It isn't like he pushed the lift over or anything (I hope not). But I will say this. He should be fired. Yes. And I mean it. Losing to Navy isn't good, but continuing practice for 25 minutes after the kid fell to his death does not warrant a second chance. You're done. You used up your three strikes right there. Fuck you, Brian Kelly, I hope that this weekend's win over Tulsa was worth the blood on your dickhead hands.
Say what you want to about Rich Rodriguez, but at least he hasn't started murdering students...yet. The death is bad enough, but what's even more sad is that Notre Dame won't do shit about this. And this is yet one more reason why everyone should hate Notre Dame.
