Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly isn't taking any chances of a disaster happing in El Paso, Texas.
Kelly said he will take his players' passports so they cannot go to Juarez, Mexico, when the team is in El Paso preparing to play Miami in the Sun Bowl.
"That's serious. Don't go over the border, or you may not come back, simply," Kelly said. "Now I know El Paso is the safest city in the country. But it's serious. This isn't, 'Hey, let's give it a shot, guys, and jump in the car and see what it's like.' You can't go there, or nobody is going to be able to help you. There's just been too much turmoil, too many things that have happened there that can't have a good outcome even in a lark or a joke that we're going to shoot over. You take the passports, they can't get back. These guys are smart enough to know that."
