2 year extension

It is fair to say thank goodness it wasn't your typical 5-year extension. 2 years could be argued as undeserving or fair. But it illustrates the window that Kelly has. He has 2 years to show marked improvement. 2013 is the year where if he doesn't get to a BCS bowl, he'll be past his point. 11 wins will be the watermark, 10 if he goes BCS due to ranked team wins. They'll forgive less than double digit wins in 2012, 2013 will be the make or break. This way we can still tell recruits there is a good chance the coach who recruits you will be here, but if they suck and egg in 2013, they'll let him stay through 2014 and buy out his last two years and do a search.

I know, if ND would have given him 5, not good. Not that any of us are paying for it! :) But yeah, I agree, he has 2 years, the schedule is very easy in 2013. If no BCS, see ya Dude.

Exactly. BK will simply need to be BCS bound in the next 2 years. My prediction all along has been that he will leave ND with a .675-.700 %, a best of 11-2 in 2013 and no BCS title game. Not criminal, but short of exceptional. Look for him to be gone within 2 years of when Diaco gets a head job.
