Notre Dame linebacker Kerry Neal is in his senior season, and since Neal came to South Bend, the Irish have gone 20-25 which is probably not what Neal thought he was signing up for.  Something that is no doubt frustrating for Neal, the rest of his team, and fans of the once proud tradition at Notre Dame.  Though those frustrations, while understandable, certainly do not condone actions like this.



That's Neal stomping on Navy slotback John Howell during Navy's 35-17 stomping of the Irish on Saturday.  Head coach Brian Kelly is yet to address this play, and who knows if he's even aware of it at this point, but if he is then you would think that Neal would be suspended for at least a game.

It was a gutless act, and one that needs to be punished.

UPDATE: During Brian Kelly's press conference on Tuesday afternoon the head coach said that he was aware of the play, but that he wouldn't be punishing Neal.  Which is just, well, disturbing.

The Navy running back showed great restraint and should be commended for not going after the idiot.  It showed and reminded everyone what a great job the Navy Accademy is doing with our future men and women the U.S Navy.  That is also a great reflection on the kind of men the Navy coach is trying to mold.  I wait for the day Kerry Neal gets his ass kicked.

I know he's been having problems with the Redskins, but when did Albert Haynesworth sign with Notre Dame?

Disgraceful, both the player and Coach reaction.  ND's lack of effort was disgusting enough.

There's an official that walks up RIGHT after this happens & NO FLAG??!! WTF! This was in plain sight. He should've been ejected & not allowed to play for a few games. Does he really have a personal vendetta against this Navy freshman? You wouldn't think so. It looks like an act of incredibly stupid violence in my books. And I think the official should be drug tested! Seriously!!!Yell
