NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK: Kelly, UND agree to contract extension

(Continued)

SOUTH BEND —

Fabulous freshman    

Jaylon Smith, a Fort Wayne Bishop Luers product, became the first true freshman to start an opener for the Irish since 1995. Smith won the 2012 Butkus Award as the nation’s top prep linebacker.       

Kelly said Smith played like a freshman at times, which was pretty much what was expected.    

“He had some great energy,” Kelly said. “But he has a lot to work on. I’m sure glad he’s on our football team.”

    

A big splash    

Amir Carlisle’s first career carry in a Notre Dame uniform was a memorable one.    

On first-and-15 from the Notre Dame 18, Carlisle – a junior transfer from USC who sat  out last season due to injury – ripped off a 45-yard run that helped set up the Irish’s first TD of the day.    

Carlisle ended his day with seven carries for 68 yards.

       

Daniels’ big day    

Irish junior WR DeVaris Daniels had just three catches before calling it a day at halftime with a slight groin pull – but he made them count, with two going for TDs.    

Daniels finished with 68 yards on the day and could have played in the second half, Kelly said, but coaches elected to hold him out in preparation for Michigan next week.

   

A Jones for the ball    

Irish senior receiver and co-captain T.J. Jones expressed an interest on Media Day in being a go-to guy for Rees … and Rees seemed to take Jones to heart, as the pair connected six times for 138 yards on Saturday.

Kelly said he was pleased with the ball distribution from Rees on Saturday.

“I thought you saw what I was hoping for,” Kelly said.  “You had Daniels catch a touchdown.  You had T.J. Jones and obviously Chris Brown.  You had Troy Niklas, you had the running backs catch footballs.  You had Tarean Folston catching a nice ball coming out of the backfield. I think you’re going to see great distribution of the football across the board, and it’s going to be somebody new each week.”

    

Kicking woes    

Neither kicker set the world on fire on Saturday at Notre Dame Stadium: Owl and Irish kickers were a combined 0-for-4 on field goals and Temple freshman kicker Jim Cooper tossed in a missed PAT for good measure, though the kick was blocked.

Poll

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
