Brian Kelly said the process of getting this Notre Dame team to play the way he wants it to play is ongoing.“It’s not about a physical practice,” he said. “It’s about getting our players to do it right all the time. It’s not about cracking heads, being physical. It’s about being accountable, doing it the right way all the time. We’re in that comfortable and confidence stage. They know how to do it. They either can’t do it or won’t do it. I’ve got cure the can’ts and won’ts.“That’s what it’s about. We’re a work in progress. We’re working through it. We can string together three or four in a row but we can’t string together seven or eight or nine or 10 in a row and I want to string together 12 and 13 in a row. We can string together three or four but that’s not good enough.”Kelly has been focusing on the little things since Saturday night’s loss to USC, including the proper way to stretch out before practice. No detail is too small, he said.“What we’re trying to do is establish a consistency in the way I want things done on a day-to-day basis. That consistency has everything to do with off the field, on the field, the practice field, meetings, all those things. That consistent and approach every single day with a sense of urgency. That’s the process I’m involved in. I’m committed to it. I took this job to make sure we get that done and we haven’t gotten that done yet.”
