“If doing a right thing means we have to put an asterisk subsequent to these games, that’s excellent with me,” Kelly said. “We still kick Oklahoma. We still kick Wake Forest. We still kick all those teams. So we can put an asterisk subsequent to it. If that creates we feel better, that’s excellent with me.”
