SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Coach Brian Kelly isn't interested in talking with his players about a history lesson as Notre Dame tries to avoid one of the school's worst finishes in 128 seasons of playing football.
"We don't spend time talking about worst or bad or all-time negative, things of that nature. We are who we are. We're 2-5. We know where we are. So that's not really going to be a solution to us," Kelly said. "If I've got to get them motivated to be successful by using, `You guys don't want to be one of the all-time losingest football teams,' then we recruited the wrong guys.
"These guys have got a ton of pride. I don't have to hit them in the nose with a newspaper and remind them of that. So we don't talk about that. We talk about how do we get a win," he said.
