A regular caller on our local sports talk radio show called in this morning and said "Over the next five weeks we're about to be reminded why a lot of people can't stand Notre Dame."
He went on to say that most of the listening audience may not be old enough to remember. But he's of the age where he remembers from a national media standpoint, Notre Dame WAS THE only headline on the front page of the sports page or the front running story on the sports segment. When you said "college football" it was the equivalent of saying "Notre Dame". He said he remembered if you weren't a Notre Dame fan you got so sick of Notre Dame being worked into every college football conversation from a national media standpoint.
He said he thinks over the next five weeks until January 7th. In hopes to rid the sour taste of the SEC fatigue from their mouth, they (the media) are going to push Notre Dame and their greatness down everybody's throats.
