The head coach of the most famous college football program in the world decided to ride to preseason practice on Friday in a way reminiscent of the team's famous history.
Even if it looked more than a little weird.
As Notre Dame publicist Leigh Torbin tweeted on Friday:
Perhaps Coach Brian Kelly was trying to channel the 1924 Notre Dame team with a famous backfield named the "Four Horsemen."
Time will tell if Kelly's move was meant to revisit championship history (their last was in 1988) or just do something really silly.
