Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly prepared to campaign on 'Oprah' for a BCS title shot

Jonathan Daniel

The Fighting Irish might not be getting the respect they deserve. Oprah can probably help.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are undefeated, of course. Some would say they're not getting enough love in the national rankings. Head coach Brian Kelly seems prepared to lobby far and wide to get them the respect his team deserves. In fact, he may be taking his campaign all the way to the top! Yep, the Big O.

Chris Vannini on CoachingSearch.com transcribed a quote from Kelly's recent appearance on SiriusXM College Sports Nation. Kelly says he's trying to stay focused on the schedule at hand for the moment, but if things come down to the wire and the Irish are still undefeated, Kelly is prepared to give the full-court press in lobbying for a shot at the national title.

Let's take Wake Forest, see what happens there, and then USC. Then, if we get to the point after USC that we're undefeated, I'll go on Oprah if I have to.

No one tell him that Oprah's show, as he likely knows it, doesn't exist any more. It would break his little heart.
