    Stereotyping a whole group of people is never a good thing. Of course you just did that with your post. Unfortunately we have too many people they can point to as proof of their reasoning and they have plenty of people we can point to that proves your point.

    I don't think that poster went to ND. At least he does not seem to be smart enough for ND...

You never hear the sec brag about their graduation rates. A lot of these kids in the sec could not gain admittance in a lot of schools and ND being one. Don't devalue the the "smart" value on the field, its a huge edge for ND, one of the reasons for their success in close games imo. They don't make a lot of mistakes and usually take advantage of the opponents.


    not sure how he explains Notre Dame's insignificance over the past 20 years since they're so smart

    Are you guys aware of what a subway domer is...It is someone who did not go to Notre Dame. That is why I am suggesting that you not go to subway domer forums. It's not great.

    We have had multiple bama fans come on our board to talk fball. They have been super cool and it has been cordial. Irishenvy.com/forums.

    Taking one post and making a sweeping generalization about the rest of ND fans is exactly what you accuse us of doing. Can we please be rational?

    Most people are basing their opinions off of a lifetime of Domers. Not saying you guys are all bad, we all have goobers. In fact I actually know some very knowledgeable and friendly Notre Dame fans.

    There are some cocky ones, for sure. We try to keep the southern stuff minimal on our board. I would start rubbing the Barrett Jones Campbell award in some cocky ND faces if I were you.

    See I don't have a hatred for ND because I wasn't born yet back when we were playing them consistently. I just know they are the next on our schedule so I don't like them. Now Auburn is a little different story...

    I prefer a something a little more straight forward. Maybe Pedophiles vs Pachyderms?
    On NDNation, that shirt was mocked, for all the right reasons...

    This is one of my favorite things I have found while browsing their boards.

    Also to note is that one of Bama's D, I think Quincy, will likely be suspended for the NC due to helmet to helmet hit.

    Sir, as with many of your posters, we visit other boards too. You have some very good posters here, and some that fall below very good. ND boards have the same, and probably the same proportions.

    What I find funny, is this thread is doing the exact same things you're complaining about. Isn't that a bit ironic? They are touting ND on ND boards, and Alabama fans are doing the same thing on Alabama boards. ND fans are taking shots at Alabama, Alabama fans, and trying to entertain themselves until January 7th. I see the exact same things happening on Alabama boards. We're no different than you are. No better and no worse.
    The only difference is the object of the affection on a given message board.

    Any semi intelligent human being knows, a good education can be obtained at almost any institution of higher learning. It matters little what name is over the front doors. What is important is what you do with the tools they give you, and what you're willing to give. ND boards have their fair share of people who can't grasp that concept, and I'm sure the Alabama boards do too.

    I think both fan bases have a healthy fear of the opponent. All of us know, ANYTHING can happen on a given day. I'm sure Alabama fans know people don't take shots at something they couldn't care about. ND fans are worried about Alabama, and rightfully so. Some of them think, if they can find a way to diminish you, they can add some confidence about the game. I'm seeing the same thing on the Alabama boards, which actually surprises me. Your team, and program, is what everyone is striving to be.
