NBC's College Football Talk shared the first remarks from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly following the arrest of two Notre Dame football players. According to Kelly, he is awaiting additional details before making any decisions about the players:

Brian Kelly statement on player arrests: "I am aware of last night’s incident involving two of our football players. I am of course very concerned given the nature of the allegations, but I am still gathering information. I’ll withhold judgment until I can collect all the facts and speak with both Carlo and Tommy."

Early Thursday morning, QB Tommy Rees and LB Carlo Calabrese were arrested for attempting to flee police after a local party had been reported for noise complaints. According to reports, Rees resisted arrested and has been charged with, among other things, battery to law enforcement, which is a felony charge.
