If anything goes bad, I did it. If anything goes semi-good, we did it. If anything goes really good, then you did it. That's all it takes to get people to win football games for you. - Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant
Notre Dame. As much as I don't like them, their "Catholic" label goes a long way nationwide.
The real question is who has the most rabid fans? I would venture to say one Bama fan equals 20 ND fans. Who packs more fans in the seats? If Bryant-Denny held 120,000 it'd still be sold out. We live Alabama football. It's in our everyday conversations. How many of the tee shirt wearing ND "fans" ever attend a game? How important is ND football to a fan in New York or Massachusetts when they are having an average season?
