    We are about to see why a lot of people can't stand Notre Dame.

    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.

    That's fine with me.

    Hype them up, spend a bunch of time doing Sportscenter segments and documentaries on their campus.

    Ignore Alabama. Blatantly pull for Notre Dame. Shine all the spotlight on them.

    All that matters is what happens on January 7th. Nothing would be sweeter than to absolutely crush everyone's hopes and dreams of a Notre Dame win.

    You don't think anyone that is not a Bama fan feels the some way about us?

    The general media take that I've seen is basically a has-been meets the premier program in college football. Will Notre Dang rise from the ashes or is this just a temporary flash in the pan.

    Until they beat us, and I don't think that's going to happen, they are the upstart contender, we are the defending champs. Sure, they've got a fine history behind the Notre Dang name, but Bama doesn't take a backseat on that bus to anyone, not even the Domers.

    The caller who said this is an LSU fan and he said "As much as I can't stand Alabama and how it seems the media loves them. It doesn't even come close to how much they adore Notre Dame."

    So I think as much as people outside the SEC are tired of the SEC it seems it still isn't to the same level as the lovefest for Notre Dame. I guess we're about to see aren't we?

    It is different now with cable tv, lots more games to watch on the weekend. Back in the day Notre Dame was the only game on tv, it seemed like. That is why I have a special distaste for them.

    The hatred for Notre Dame has never died out in the Midwest. B1G fans are torn - root for the SEC, which owns us, or root for the one team that you have hated your entire lives.

    Reminds me of the Syracuse talk and ink in December 1952. Of course, there was a ton less of it, but what was there was the same as now. One would have thought Syracuse had invented football, and Bama had never played a game.

    If find this funny in that this has historically been my dilemma every time ND played a B10 team. Not so much anymore, but the feeling is still latent.
