Former LSU star defensive lineman Marcus Spears was on ESPN's 'Get Up' on Tuesday morning and talked about LSU hiring Brian Kelly away from Notre Dame. Per SDS:

“He knows he has a better chance of winning a national championship at LSU,” Spears said. “This man has almost a 75% winning percentage over his career. So he’s a winner. Brian Kelly wins football games. … You’ve just got to get in. But Brian Kelly realized, once I get in, there is a different level to the teams I’m playing against.

“Coaches say all the time, ‘when you get to the SEC, it’s a different level of player,’ and Brian Kelly acknowledges that and I know people across the country don’t want to hear that and it doesn’t mean other programs and schools can’t win national championships, but when you have a resume that Brian Kelly has, when you can attract the kind of players that you can at a program like LSU and come in to play in the SEC—because all these young kids are thinking about I can go to the NFL and have a long career—you get better players. You have more of an opportunity to compete on the highest level when you get to the College Football Playoff and I’m sure that’s why the decision was made.”
Kelly will be formally introduced as LSU's new head coach at a press conference on Wednesday.
