One of the reasons Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly gave for using giant placards with images to call in offensive plays against Utah was that there was a feeling teams were starting to pick up on the Irish’s hand signals.
On Tuesday, Kelly said Irish players were coming back to the sideline and saying defenses knew certain signals and were calling the play.
He also said the need to adjust how Notre Dame signals in plays is because of modern technology and the Irish being on TV every week.
“There's a thing called TiVo now. People click it back and forth,” Kelly said. “When you’re out there so much publicly, you’re doing a lot of that, you just have to be prepared. So it’s not unusual in that sense that we’ve had to do this before.”
