Notre Dame's Jerry Tillery is under fire for a number of actions fans are perceiving as "dirty."

Notre Dame defensive tackle Jerry Tillery made a series of unfortunate decisions in his team's game against USC. In a span of less than two minutes, Tillery committed two ridiculous unsportsmanlike penalties. In the clip below, he both kicks the head of one injured player and then stomps on the foot of another:

It's been a disappointing season for the Irish, who started the season with a No. 10 ranking. The season quickly got out of hand with Notre Dame dropping its opener against Texas. The Irish never recovered, and will not make a bowl game for the first time since 2009.

Yes it's been a disappointing season for the Irish, but that is no reason for a player to take his frustrations out the way Tillery did.

USC defeated Notre Dame 45-27 and could sneak into the College Football Playoff - if it gets help. That'd start with a Utah upset of Colorado.
