Jerry Tillery is a wanted man by USC players as the Notre Dame defensive lineman committed not one, but two despicable acts against injured players in the final game of 2016 for the Fighting Irish. A lot of people thought that a suspension would be carried into this season since Notre Dame did not make it to a bowl game last season, but they thought wrong.
Here’s a reminder of exactly what he did to the two USC players while they were down on the ground and clearly in pain:
And somehow he won’t be receiving any suspension for that. If Brian Kelly was trying to give the school reasons to fire him aside from last year’s abysmal 4-8 record this is definitely falling on the list. It doesn’t matter if he had the entire summer to think about it and get counseling, he still needs to see a tangible punishment for inexcusable actions like that and a one-game suspension is an easy and appropriate way to do that.
