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

    I don't have a clue about what the split in the stadium will be but I suspect that there are significantly more ND fans here than us Bama fans. They travel very well and there is a lot of pent up demand for them. That being said it doesn't really matter. Anyone who questions the loyalty and breadth of our fan base would have to be a moron.

    The game was on Thursday and I flew to LA on Wednesday. IIRC, that game was also on January 7.

    I heard on Bill King this morning that there are 50,000 Irish fans that have gone to South Florida without tickets.

    Yes, it was.

    As far as I can discern, we are undefeated on my birthday.

    There are a lot of ND fans in central & southern Florida so it is an easy trip for them just to drive down and take part in the pregame events. After Chicago, central & south Florida is possibly their 2nd biggest cluster of fans.

    Fortunately, most of the ND fans you've seen don't actually have tickets to the game and they didn't travel very far. Alabama fans are too far away to justify making the trip without game tickets.

    LSU fans were convinced it would be 70-30 in The Superdome too. It was "their city" and they had the "connections". Well it was 50-50 at best for them inside the stadium. Most of the folks I know that are going are not staying near the stadium, or even in Miami/Miami Gardens. Alabama fans will be there to represent. Even with three title appearances in four years, Alabama fans will show up in force.

    Subthread: Do ND fans cheer like SEC fans do? My friend who saw a big game in South Bend said he was shocked how many of the fans just sat in their seats looking entitled. I'm not suggesting no one cheers, just wondering if the contrast he described is real.

    Even if so, I realize those may not be the same fans that attend this game.

    Good time to point out again that ND had an extra week to order tickets because they already knew they were going. That's enough to make a substantial difference...

    I have heard the same. But I'm guessing that the fans that travel to this game will be loud.

    Nope. The student section is really loud, and I was really loud when I was in it. But a lot of the crowd only gets loud for big plays.

    As to the question of whether they cheer or not - the answer is mostly not.

    I have been to the ND - Michigan game at the Big House and at Notre Dame. Neither stand anywhere close to being as loud as Bama, Florida, Tennessee, or even Ohio State. Student sections are loud but not the rest of the stadium. That being said traveling fans tend to be louder, but I wouldn't expect them to match what we are used to seeing.
