SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly offered Cole Kmet a day off last Saturday.
Kmet, the freshman tight end for Kelly and a left-handed reliever for Fighting Irish baseball coach Mik Aoki, said thanks, but no thanks.
"He said, `Coach, I threw 15 (actually 12) pitches, I didn't do anything for two hours . of course, I'm practicing,'" Kelly said before Notre Dame's sixth practice of the spring.
