    In reference to the Golden Domers v Mobile Homers, I think the ND fans might want to google just how big the mobile home industry is in... Indiana. I am sure they offended quite a few in their own backyard with that reference.

    They do not care - alumni are not from that state and have almost no connection with it.

    All this is no different from what we hear about Alabama on Chattanooga sports radio from Tennessee fans. Tennessee fans! As thought they could point a finger at anyone.

    Yeah when I visit Chattanooga, that Jim Gumm guy & his sidekick are always taking passive aggressive shots at Alabama. They thought the "Catholics vs Cousins" shirt was the funniest thing they've ever heard.

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

    First time poster, obviously. I am a Notre Dame fan who posts on IrishEnvy.com. I joined the site one night after drinking about 6 beers while checking on Bama fans thoughts re: Monday night. The next morning I thought "why did I join, I'm never going to post." Well, here I am.

    Anyway, Some people think the shirt was funny and no harm, no foul. I mean there really isn't any "harm", but the shirt isn't even funny---its corny. Im guessing you all know the shirt stems from the Catholics vs Convicts shirt from back when ND played Miami, when BOTH teams were actually playing for NCs. The "Convicts" was a shot at the TEAM (not the fan base) because of their bad boy image that they embraced (See ESPN 30 on 30: The U). Then came Catholics vs. Criminoles in '93 which I thought was funny because I was in 6th or 7th grade. So this Catholics vs Cousins seems to be a shot at all Alabamans(?)(whether or not they are fans of the Tide) and not the team itself, which is dumb and illogical. Any other "Catholics vs x" should just stop.

    Plus, the stereotype isnt funny. My dad is from West Virginia and trust me, he hates it that same stereotype. And one thing, as me being a Catholic, No need to be associated with that foolishness. Who would throw that shirt and walk around proud? Prob the same dude who wears Big Johnson T-shirts (which actually were comical when I was young).

    It probably was the funniest thing that they've ever heard. In a state where family trees have no branches, all funny things involve cousins.

    Its a weakly designed t shirt. 'Catholics vs whatever'.......its played out. Stereotypes or not.

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

    If they want to deal in general stereotyping, idiocy and low class t-shirts just make some "Champs vs Child Molesters" shirts. Bama is the defending champs and well...or Nick vs NAMBLA as Nick Saban is Bama's coach and all Catholics must...ya know.

    I say this in jest and I'm not saying it's funny or cute, but you can't go much lower than that. See how funny they find it...

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

    As a Catholic from Alabama, I find this classless!
    Perhaps mr. Clausen is one of those "faux" Catholics that his school NOtre Dame has become known for!
    Nick Saban is Catholic I just learned not long ago! Makes me like him even more!

    Thought one of the comments from a fan was funny when he said not to get mad if Bama won and they turned around and printed:

    “Hail Mary full of grace,
    Notre Dame’s in second place.”
