  • Notebook: Injuries mean bye a time to heal
    INDIANAPOLIS – Notre Dame may be 3-0, but coach Brian Kelly said the upcoming bye week is a welcome sight since he has such a banged-up team.

Teaching moment

Notre Dame receiver TJ Jones has had a strong start to his college career.

The freshman caught six passes for 114 yards with two touchdowns in two games.

But a replay of Saturday's loss to Michigan shows that Jones should only have one touchdown to his credit this season.

Jones let the ball go before he got into the end zone on a 53-yard scoring reception in the third quarter.

Coach Brian Kelly said he didn't see that Jones dropped the ball early in the game, but he has talked to the receiver about it.

"What do you think? Do you want to know what happened? We pulled his pants down and gave him spanking," Kelly jokingly said when asked about what he did with Jones.

"No, that's discipline. That's a young kid that's got to have an understanding, act like you've been there before. Flipping the ball before you get in there, it is unacceptable. He heard it. It will be the last time he does it, because he won't be back on the field if he does it again."
