    Majority of the fans at Title game will be for Notre Dame

    Well, even if the split is in their favor, we'll consider it a road game (technically it is). We have done so well on the road, they I wouldn't mind it.

    I can see 60-40 Notre Dame based on the locale. I am speculating that the Greater Miami area is predominately Catholic so it would not surprise me that the crowd would be pro Notre Dame. I look at it this way, Alabama performs better as a "road" team anyway. Bring'em on cuz!

    My thought exactly. This is really a lot bigger for them than for us. We don't often get out-traveled, but this may be the exception...

    RTR!!!!!!!

    Very small part of it. Look, ND travels VERY well because they have fans from all over the country....Subway Alumni. They had a game in Dublin this year, it sold out. They played a game in Japan 10-15 years ago, it sold out. They are now looking to possibly play a game in China against Stanford and IF it happens it will be sold out and it won't be because it's Stanford who can't even sell out their own home games.

    Last night they had over 30,000 fans at their Pep Rally. ND is a small school only 8500 undergraduate students. It's the subway alumni like me who are all over the country who never went to ND.

    Blame Michigan, they were the ones who black balled ND from joining the BIG-10 all the way back when Rockne was coach and forced ND to play schools from all over the country which they still do today.

    Re: Majority of the fans at Title game will be for Notre Dame

    I do feel it will be a 60/40 split based on the number of ND fans chasing down tickets here. There are 10 ND fans at my hotel for every 1 Bama fan. And many do not have tickets. If any tickets are in the air, I am sure there is a high probability a ND fan will be buying. I am hoping that Bama fans hold their tickets and/or do not have surplus tickets at will be sold at the game. But I do not see it being 70/30.

    They said last year the game was 60/40 LSU, and that turned out fine. Just more sad faces we can see on the TV screen.

    We are accustomed to outnumbering rival fans wherever we play, being known as one of, if not the best, traveling fan bases in the country. We outnumbered the Texas fans in '09, in Dallas. I don't think anyone has suggested they don't have the money to travel. As far as selling out Dublin, gimme a break...

    Us "poor" Alabamians must not be able to afford this rich-folk things. We must not do too bad, having the 2nd-richest grossing program in the country

    If these people saw the million dollar motor homes across campus in Tuscaloosa and road games, they'd have another opinion of the wealth available with Bama fans.
