Heading into 2012, the best way for Brian Kelly to improve his Notre Dame offense is to pick up the tempo. A faster pace can generate greater production from his existing group of offensive contributors.

This is part two in a three-part series examining the implications of tempo on the Irish offense. Last week in part one, we broke down the statistical side of things. This time, we'll delve into the specific benefits of quickening the pace on offense. Next week in part three, we'll detail exactly how this system can be implemented at Notre Dame next season.

One quick note: Throughout this series, we're operating under the assumption that either Andrew Hendrix or Everett Golson will be starting at quarterback for the Irish in 2012. Brian Kelly has already demonstrated that he doesn't feel comfortable running an up-tempo offense with Tommy Rees at quarterback, so in order for this to work, either Hendrix or Golson will have to take over.
