A day after Notre Dame's decisive victory over rival Army at Yankee Stadium, Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly was peppered with questions about another controversy involving the northern Indiana university and its football program.
According to a Chicago Tribune story, 19-year-old Elizabeth Seeberg, a Northbrook native, died of an apparent suicide in September at neighboring St. Mary's College. The Tribune said Seeberg told Notre Dame police less than two weeks earlier that she had been sexually attacked by a ND football player.
Kelly is not talking about the situation right now. And he doesn't really have to.
"I saw the story," Kelly said during his Sunday teleconference. "But as you know, anything this article alleges, you know, would be a university matter."
The alleged incident took place on Aug. 31. Notre Dame officials have yet to publicly acknowledge the case.
But what I find most interesting is this:
According to the Tribune, school authorities did not tell the St. Joseph County Police Department investigating Seeberg's death about her report of a sexual attack.
So even if the school had determined no attack took place, don't you think there would have been a mention of the reported incident?
After a tumultuous first season, Kelly has his club bowl eligible at 6-5 and travels to USC next week who could be without starting QB Matt Barkley who was injured in the Trojans blowout loss to Oregon State Saturday night. USC has won 8 in a row in the series.
