Clearly the Notre Dame Coach, Brian Kelly, is up to date on current affairs and what is going on across the border of where his team will play the Sun Bowl.
The Sun Bowl featuring Notre Dame vs. Miami on December 31 will play out in El Paso, Texas right across the border from Mexico’s most violent city, Juarez. To assure all his player’s safety Coach Kelly is taking their passports, to avoid any risk of them going on a across the border trek.
“That’s serious. Don’t go over the border, or you may not come back, simply,” Kelly said to his players. The great irony is that El Paso, Texas has been deemed the safest city in the country.
