    Re: Jimmy Clausen Designed T-Shirt "Catholics Vs. Cousins" Is Really Low Class

    You should know that Clausen's poor humor was strongly disapproved of on NDNation as it should have been. Most ND fans are weary of this stereotypical joking humor and the "Catholics vs Convict" T shirt that was so original in the 80's vs Miami has become offensive even to ND fans.
    Notre Dame has a very large contingent of Southerners as students and graduates. My hometown is Pensacola and I am one of many fans who strongly dislike the slurring of our special place in the USA no matter where it originates. When the Country has a crisis, when there is a call to defend her, Southerners are the first to stand up and the last to stand down.

    Please don't judge us by a few thoughtless adrenalin fueled zealots. Most ND grads and fans are respectful of all of our opponents. I am sure you may have occasionally been embarrassed by some of your own fans as well. They are not the measure of any University or its fan base.

    We all have our Fans, after all the term is an abbreviation of Fanatic and it is what makes college football the sport that it is.

    Remember, just because it is on the Internet, that doesn't make it so!

    I'm sure part of their informed fans expect to see the 'Beverly Hillbillies' come rolling into Miami.
    This happens everytime i travel to an OOC away game (bowl game, neutral site, regular season OOC). Plenty of the opposing fans think that we're all inbred hillbillies so they originally have this "superior" attitude. Once they see we're normal people and see how attractive the female bama students are, they get jealous.

    It's a shame that on a thread that started out expressing displeasure over the use of the word Cousins, spiraled downward with retorts of Pedophiles and Rapists, as well as Homosexual inuendo. Seems more a validation of Clausen's claim rather than a challenge. We can do better I believe.

    Isn't Jimmy Clausen the dude that showed up to his ND signing day event in a stretch limo, touting he was going to win 4 national championships?

    Yeah ... Jimmy. You so silly.

    That's the problem with insulting a particular group to begin with. Once someone takes friendly competition to a personal level they open up a can of worms they probably didn't want to open.

    It looks a bit like the ND lineman had no interest in keeping Clausen upright in that footage. Wonder if that was a problem with the OL or if the OL had a problem with Clausen.

    I don't know if anyone has stated this yet,as I haven't read the whole thread. But, Bama fought back with a classless one of their own. Pedophiles Vs. Pachyderms.

    Re: Jimmy Clausen Designed T-Shirt "Catholics Vs. Cousins" Is Really Low Class

    The only difference between Notre Dame and Alabama is that in addition to their normal fans base from Indiana, Alumni and some band wagoner's that they have a large group that are fans by association or default but couldn't name the starting quarterback to save their lives.

    Any non service academy veteran can identify with this fan group when the service academy's play. It's fun, but you don't get angry when your team loses.

    So to be honest, as a Catholic, 99.5% are fair weathered fans.
