    ND Fans Seem to be Bi-Polar at This Point

    If we didn't have so many athletes going pro, how much higher would our Grad rate be?

    Not positive, but I would think some of those guys leave with a degree.

    Their TE is supposedly unstoppable, no one can cover the guy.

    Bama ran on Georgia, but Georgia sucks on defense.

    And some of their fans must not even be aware of the Vegas line and pay attention to the rest of the NCAA very much, in their minds ND is the favorite team and they are going to put a whipping on the "Gumps" LOL.
    I have been to their board on Rivals, and I agree with the parts that I bolded. A lot of it has to do with the fact that, other than the first two years under Charlie Weis, they haven't accomplished all that much, and now that they're good, some of them act like they're such hot stuff, despite the fact that they haven't even won the NCG yet.

Sort of like Ivan Drago vs Rocky in Rocky IV (http://www.subwaydomer.com/2012-arti...-rocky-iv.html). The other side is the one where Alabama is so terribly overrated and this is just going to be total domination by them over us.

    Just a friendly warning, don't go to their message boards. A lot of it is just stereotypical southern dumb jokes that will only tick you off. The football talk is just very uninformed and juvenile. RTR!!
    If you were to take your typical current Notre Dame fan, he would look like this: guy from a northern state who hasn't watched college football in the last 20 years, wearing a ND sweatshirt and pretending he is a college football expert. Sad but that's how it is.

    Hmmm seems this description might fit, here's a visual aid. To be clear in this allegory the car represents Alabama and the brown shirts represent ND... all wet behind the ears!

    Re: ND Fans Seem to be Bi-Polar at This Point

    I wonder how all those ignorant, redneck Bama fans can control a vast nationwide conspiracy.Between fixing games, controlling the BCS, and manipulating the media...the REC does it all. Petty good for a bunch of ignorant rednecks I'd say...doesn't speak to well for the rest of the cfb world. hahahahaha

    that said, does anyone expect anything less than "they're all a bunch of toothless inbreds" from the ND crowd? that place is more upper-class snotty white kid than a wilco concert.
    One reason we were on our heels was we thought the game was over with INT. sometimes its hard to refocus. Just saying.

    Only one point I wanna make on the non spike. That call was obviously Richt's planned playcall. If he spikes it, runs that play, same outcome, clock still runs out, Dawgs still lose. Anything else is just wishful thinking and speculation. But living in Georgia I will probably be hearing about it for another 32 years.

    I don't think too many people outside of South Bend believe that Indiana is the center of higher culture.

    I concur. That has been 95% of the ND folks I've run into in DC and California.

    "We are much the more physical defense than Georgia. And better conditioned. And probably deeper."

    I like how the reasoning devolves into blatant speculation. Why stop at the first point when it's clear to this guy/gal that ND is better in every facet?

    Re: ND Fans Seem to be Bi-Polar at This Point

    I used to live in NYC, when I attended NYU, and lived with, probably, millions of ND fans. Some of the descriptions above are apt. "Clueless" is about the kindest term I can think of to describe them. Usually, I glance at our rival's boards, but not this time. I know what to expect - a mass of people ignorant about football, and, well, just ignorant generally, who can only think in terms of stereotypes. So, any intelligent discourse with them about the game is about as fruitless as mud-wrestling a pig, and, since you guys know the rest of the saying, I don't need to repeat it...
