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

    I went into the basement of a relative years ago that went to ND and there were 2 things that stuck out, one was a banner from the 1966 season and the other were these little pillows on the couch saying, "it's hard to be humble when you went to ND"!

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.
    I can tolerate that sour taste. Let's give them the BIG head, thinking that there is any way they are going to lose to Bama. All Bama people need to do the same thing. Notre Dame is just too tough for Bama. Mr. Te'o is just tooooo tough for us to handle. We'll need at least 6 blockers on him on each play. Their offense is just toooo good for Bama's defense.

    Didn't this happen in 1992 against Miami? We just didn't have a chance against those Hurricanes in '92. We just don't have a chance against Noter Dumb! I just can't see why Bama is favored. That needs to change. It's going to be so bad, they'll beat us like we beat the Barn!

    On January 7, 2013, the media will be saying "what happened to God's team?" My only explanation is that God's team is in Tuscaloosa, not the bend on the south side of Chicago.

    Guess I was ahead of the 'Curve' on this one... I have never been a fan of ND.

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

    I posted this to another thread:

    My dislike goes back when the sports media voted Notre Dames' Huarte for Heisman instead of Namath. They both went with the Jets and I am not sure if Huarte ever played a down.

    Then to make matters worse in 1966, Bama is undefeated and untied and the media voted for Notre Dame and Michigan State as the #1 teams. The two had tied when I believe Notre Dame would not go for two to win. If would have given Bama three straight national championships.

    BTW. How many knew that Frank Thomas' roommate was the Gipper?

    I did not realize there was that much hatred for Notre Dame in the Midwest and B1G. I always figured that was a Southern thing.

    They live with us, work with us. We hear it every day. Think Auburn after they won in 2010, except they keep on winning.
