Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
Not even if someone had a gun to my had. I would rather die then root for those bastards.
Gun to my head. Damn phone.
Sorry, someone just dinged me in another threat for confusing to and too. I had a booboo in my head.
I didn't know you could still cheer after you die. Seems a bit of a waste, you could just cheer one way or the other, rather than die.
zombie notre dame fans make up half of the fanbase though
And then Saban roll into the NFL
Plus, I don't want to wait until we play them in September to see Brian Kellys purple face
Well I was rooting really hard for the Mayans so it wouldn't come to this but I guess theres ony one choice.... Go Meteor!
Thanks for the help...I know who I'm rooting for now.
I'm hoping for a Dark Knight Rises kickoff.
"Let the games begin!"--Nick Sa-Bane
I'm sick of the SEC.
I will say that If ND wins the title with 98% graduation, that's nothing short of a miracle these days.
Would rather root for the SEC to win it's 100th in a row, including Saban grabbing his 4th, then root for ND. I don't like Brian Kelly, I don't like most of their fans, and I'm quite sure that if their was the suspicion of football-player-rape-turned-bullying that led to a female student's suicide at Alabama, ND fans would be falling all over themselves to smear Bama*... instead, all I hear about is Saint Te'o (who, it hardly needs to be said, does seem like an incredible kid).
*Not trying to stir shirt from the thread about that WashPost blog from last month; rather, I merely think it's safe to say that ND fans would be at their sanctimonious best if something like that was alleged at another school.
For me that was the worst part about the Heisman fight between Aggies and Domers. Hearing Domer fans trying to smear Manziel for that bar-fight he was involved with, when their players are hardly squeaky clean
What's wrong with their fans? All those I know are really nice.
In one way, it makes sense...considering our close loss to them earlier this year, seeing them go all the way is a small validation. But the downside is that I have to listen to them thump their collective chest all winter, spring and fall until next season. I really can't say enough times how much I hate the ESSS EEEE SEEEE.
What to do...what to do....
I hate the SEC.
Yet, I hate Notre Dame.
Yet, I hate Nick Saban.
Yet, I can't stand the thought of being within one game of losing the title of winningest program by percentage to them if they beat us.
Yet, I'm hopeful that Brian Kelly will be gone if they win the championship.
Yet, I'm thinking if he were to leaving after winning a championship, he'd also be willing to leave if they don't win it.
I'm so torn and back and forth. I'm just going to cry either way.
You really think Brian Kelly would leave ND? I don't see it.
I don't know. I didn't until there was talk about him going to the NFL. Now, I'm hopeful.
I've been under a rock lately.. i haven't heard this speculation but now I'm curious. I was hoping Chip Kelly would go, but i suppose it helps us more if Brian Kelly goes instead.
Another National Championship for Notre Dame isn't good for our recruiting Midwestern prospects. We'll lose the strong Catholics to ND fairly often as it is (e.g. Midland, MI OT Steve Elmer), and I'd rather they not have this to throw against us.
Alabama already has recent championships which help with recruiting. A third won't change how recruits view them nearly as much as an ND championship will help them.
yes, this. we should be looking at this from the perspective of how it impacts UM recruiting in the future. i want notre dame to get stomped.
Kyle Bosch is from St. Francis high school. Suburban Catholic Conference represent.
Rootin' for 'Bama. And it really isn't even close.
What he said.
The SEC has already had a lackluster bowl season, and watching them lose the Cotton bolw and the NCG would be pretty nice. I am rooting for ND, just this once.
Which would require an Alabama rout, so I guess I'm rooting for Alabama.
They basically fit the mold of a B1G team and a win by them will help out everyone not in the SEC, esp the B1G bc we will get to play them next season.
Also, the SEC is 3-3 in bowls right now. They lose the NC and that means UF, LSU, and Bama all lost. These are consistently considered the best teams in the SEC. They all lose and maybe we won't see 5 of the top 7 on next years poll in the SEC. Esp if OU beats a&m and the SEC has a losing bowl record...
This will go along way to helping out the B1G as well.
As far as ND recruiting vs. UM, the damage is already done. Win or lose they will be a tough beat on the recruiting trail. For the above reasons I say go ND.
No one outside of the Big Ten thinks like that though. No one gives a shit about academics, all they care about is ESS EEE SEE SPEED. If ND wins, I guarantee you no one will be talking about their graduation rate. It doesn't help the Big Ten at all, in fact it hurts everyone in the region in recruiting. Sure, they've already got the hype train rolling, but you really think Brian Kelly flashing his NC ring in front of recruits a la Urban Meyer won't have a huge effect? The net result of ND winning is overwhelmingly negative IMO, where as Alabama winning will essentially be expected and status quo.
I was talking about the perception as a northern/midwest team. The MSM has this view as do most CFB fans. I mean we compete with them in recruiting right and we recruit the midwest heavily with some CA, and FL sprinkled in.
Nobody looks at ND and thinks SPEED. ND winning will help debunk some of the perception of the SEC which is a positve for UM and the B1G. At this point anything hurting the SEC is positive for the B1G.
What good is beating ND in recruiting if the SEC has 2 or 3 teams in the CFB top 4/playoffs every year? As it stands now the SEC will get 2 every year so everyone else (B1G included) is figting for 2 spots. In that world do you like UM's chances? In that world the B1G championship isn't enough, you need to be undefeated. Or at least not lose after October.
Yeah, I misinterpreted your post. The point remains though, while it'd be great for a non SEC team to win it, when that team is one of your team's two primary rivals in recruiting, it's still a net negative.
IMO you are greatly overestimating the geography knowledge of the average college football fans. There are educated coastal types whose USA map consists of NYC, LA, Florida, and a couple of ski resorts in Colorado. Ask them where Michigan is relative to Montana and you'll get a blank stare. You think they know where ND is?
I'm exaggerating just a bit. ND is a "national" school to most people. Its actual location is irrelevant.
No, Never. Not even the least bit undecided about it whatsoever.
I hate the SEC but it is what it is, Alabama losing isn't going to change anything. On the other hand, ND winning will refuel their hype train for another century, you'd never hear the end of their "Return to Glory." Their delusional fans will demand ND be treated like NC contenders every year even as they go 9-3, which is where they should have been this year if not for extraordinary luck and favorable calls by refs. Even if they weren't ND, I still couldn't stomach rooting for them because they frankly don't belong there. They also compete with us directly in recruiting.
To hell with Notre Dame.
I respect Notre Dame's program, and I will not be mad if they win. Of course, I still think Alabama is the best team, so it will likely be moot point.
Why does everyone hate ND so much? Yes we play them and obviously I always want to beat them, but I don't particularly care how they do in their games against other teams.
you could never understand
I hate them because they think they're special, that they deserve to be relevant despite decades of mediocraty and the hype they manage to continue generating because of their large fanbase, not their product on the field. I hate that they don't think they need to be part of a conference. I hate their sweetheart deal with their own network complete with homer announcers fawning over every thing they do. Above all, I hate the fact they think they have a monopoly on tradition and academic excellence.
I understand your points about the conference and their TV deal, though the latter seems more like jealousy. I just don't find the fact that they have a large fanbase or the fact that they have been mediocre to be reason enough for me to "hate" them.
Also, I'm not really sure about them thinking they have a monopoly on tradition or academic excellence. I would hope they would see Michigan as very similar in both regards.
a new avatar or have I somehow missed it when you've posted in the past?
It's new within the last couple weeks. It's funny, I just noticed your signature referencing Atlas a couple days ago. Is that new?
that actually got an MGoDiscussion on the book started on the front page. I had it as my signature from that post until early-2012 or so, when I went to linking to a family business in Ann Arbor, then went back to it when Brian emailed about moderating about a month ago since I thought the linking might not be as appropriate any more.
I've been toying with changing it in the past week or so, but I haven't come up with anything that tops a positive quote about Hoke mixed with an Atlas reference.
I hadn't realized such a political/philosophical discussion had occurred here. If I would have seen it I certainly would have jumped in.
ND fans/alumni have no self-awareness. They do not feel they have equals in academics, football, community service or religion. I have not met an ND alumnus who has the ability to be critical of himself or his school. 20+ years of bolivia did nothing to their ego. If I'm jealous of anything, it's this.
Neg me if you must, but many of the things you just said about ND are also commonly said about Michigan, and some of the other stuff just sounds like jealousy.
Edit: goblueram said what I was thinking faster than I did.
But with Michigan it's all true.
Maybe some of it is true of Michigan fans, but this is a Michigan Blog, and I am a Michigan Fan. If anything, it's even more reason for us to be natural enemies. And it's not jealousy, it's about bringing delusional fans down a peg.
Yes, no question. My step-dad is an alum, and I've got good friends that went there as well. My biggest problem with ND fans is that they act as if ND has unparalleled tradition. So that's what holds me back... but we're not just rooting against Alabama... we're rooting against the SEC. The SEC has been riding the coat tails of Alabama, LSU (and i guess Florida, but Urban's gone.)
Roll Damn Tide.
Roll Tide Roll
No. Roll Tide
I hate Alabma, but I hate ND more.
Maybe. If there is a fire.
Will never root for ND, don't know what I would do if the played ohio. Hope for a scoreless tie I guess.
I'm rooting for a cholera outbreak in the stadium.
I think I might root for Notre Dame if the national championship was between ND and Ohio State. But that is just about the only scenario in which I would root for them.
I put 35 confidence points on Bama. Not because I am that confident in Bama, but because I don't even want to picture the media reaction should Notre Dame win.
Root for arguably our biggest recruiting rival? Non, merci.
As much as it does the HYPE and the 1 month build up of the NC game. In this sense ND already has the recruiting benefit whether they win or not. They have been near the top of the polls for 3 mths now.
They will get the recurting bump no matter what. What matters is the polls and league perceptions. ND to many is considered a northern B1G like school. Then beating the SEC does more for Michigan and has te potential to lower the rankings of pre season SEC teams next year then Bama winning and another summer of SEC media hype.
Perception is also key heading into the 4 team playoff in a couple years.
Sure, but winning the title will give them a much longer honeymoon period than losing will. Not to mention that it will make Kelly bulletproof there forever.
To hell with Notre Dame...
No way never ever ever ever ever.
So I'll just watch. I seldom get to watch an inteResting game withOut having a bias toward a particuLar team for some reason.
...I wiLl have a smile come To my face If ND gEts blown out, though.
We need the old voting system back. This deserves far more than merely 5 points.
ND competes more directly with Michigan for recruits.
To hell with Notre Dame.
Not a chance! I hope the Tide destroy them.
I'm really happy that Ohio had they're sanctions this season so I don't have to see those 2 play each other in the title game. I'm pretty sure I would have felt obligated to put a gun barrel in my mouth if that would have happened.
Both head coaches are head cases.
The ESS EEE SEE has already proven itself vulnerable this bowl season, so I can't root against Alabama on that basis...
I truly despise the Irish and their fans' arrogance more than I despise Alabama fans and their lack of intellect.
Hoping for an Alabama BLOWOUT of Neuter Dame.
Are you fucking kidding? No.
Just because people don't understand the idea of oversigning and don't understand that oversigning is a major reason for the recent success of Bama Football doesn't mean I have to root for the insufferable traditionalist garbage spewers in South Bend.
I hate Bama just as I hated USC , Miami, etc. but I have always hated Notre Dame. Evene when they were a flaming pile of fat shit i still hated them. I will always hate them. Too cool for the party, eh? Too much tradition, huh? Rudy? Fuck off.
Threads like this always seem to be started by somebody who is sheepishly looking for approval to cheer, cheer for ol' Not-rah Dame.
Q. "Are you rooting for Notre Dame?"
A. "No. Thank you for asking and have a nice day."
the rest of you may as well just stop posting now. I'm not leaving this spot.
Roll Tide! (cause you can't have one without the other)
ND is a recruiting rival and will be insufferable if they win a NC. Also there is a good chance this win would push Saban out the door to the NFL.
I can't believe any michigan fan would even consider rooting for nd in this game! I mean does it really matter if the sec wins another title??? Who cares! We don't have any rivals in the sec and hardly play against them. If notre dame wins u don't think the media would love them like they do the sec right now? Of course they would and it might be worse considering the fact that they'll wanna believe nd is "back". No brainer who to root for
Bane to blow up the Stadium
but we recruit against leprechauns not elephants
I hate Alabama winning the NC more than Notre Dame, unfortunately. I can't get past oversigning.
If Alabama gets to take 5 players for every 4 we take, then we might as well get 5 downs to get a first.
I hate it too, but it is within the rules. Just as when we (Michigan) had no limit to scholorships because we had seemingly endless funding from donors. We just did it first and it wasn't fair, but it was within the rules. I don't like it either and am proud that the B1G won't allow it, but those are the rules. NCAA! Woo!
At this point, the SEC hype has become white noise to me. I couldn't endure a ND win...
I don't plan on watching the game either.
It would be cool to have the national champions come into the Big House for a night game
Roll damn Tide and may they win by a larger margin than the Cowboy Classic.
I hope Alabama pummels them like they deserve to be pummeled.
It's time for this insufferable SEC talk to end. Notre Dame will be silenced when we play them at home next year, but if Alabama wins, there will NEVER EVER be an end to this "ESS EEE SEE" talk. UGHHHH.
Alabama losing won't even move the needle, one loss isn't going to change the narrative. SEC hype isn't going to end until they stop oversigning. Until then, they will have the recruiting advantage they need to stay atop the pile.
Instead it'll be how great ND is because they managed to beat an SEC team, not that the SEC team wasn't that good.
Nah, most of the SEC hype comes from the fact that they have won the national title for the last 4 or 5 years. With Florida getting smashed Louisville and SEC teams struggling with lower Big 10 teams this year, analysts have been saying that until the SEC loses a national championship game, they will always be considered the best conference, but the gap between the SEC and other conferences isn't as wide as previously thought.
If you think a loss next season is going to stop the Notre Dame won a national championship talk. It may take another 20 years to end.
And if the SEC loses the game, they'll have won 6 of 7. You think that's going to stop the talk? So, when the SEC is finally beat, the best conference will be the team that dethroned them....oh, wait, Notre Dame isn't in a conference. So the other team in the national title game is from....the SEC.
My hate chart says yes, but barely
2. Lil brother
4. Notre Dame
Mine is similar...
2. everyone else
USC (Yes, that USC) also has a high spot on my list. This little private hell they're going through with Kiffin just makes me happy all over.
But more importantly, ROLL Saban and Kelly to the NFL! Saban to the Bears and BK to the Browns!
Rooting for the Mobile Homers to beat the Golden Domers
How can any Michigan fan seriously pull for ND over Alabama? Serious Question
Roll Tide Roll
Roll God Damn Tide
Sanctimonious hypocrisy is the most abhorrent of character traits. The SEC has many faults, but that is not one of them. SEC schools unabashedly run their programs as football factories that happen to have universities attached to them. They don't brag about their graduation rates or "winning with class" while their coaches are out killing student managers or ignoring rape accusations against their players.
Also, if Notre Dame turns out to be the school that snaps the SEC's streak, we'll never hear the end of it from their annoying fans. I want the SEC's streak to end, but not at the hands of Notre Dame.
So to answer your question, NO. Roll Tide (or whatever).
No fucking way!
Yes. I'm sick of the SEC and the only ND grad I know is a really good person.
No to ND.
(1) At the game in S. Bend this year I sat near some fans who were intolerable frat boy type idiots. Racial slurs about Denard when they weren't calling us white trash.
(2) The way the ending the serids
(3) Brian Kelly
Always like ND-- almost went there but chose Meeeecheeegan instead.
I hope they lose 65-0
I was at a UM bar in NYC for a couple games this year and heard racial slurs at Denard from fellow UM fans. we all have them. Some schools more than others (SEC).
I want to see them get beat like a red-headed step child.
ROLL DAMN TIDE
I may hate Bama, Saban and the SEC but I DESPISE Notre Dame.
Anyone who roots for Notre Dame in this game is dead to me.
Dead girl. Dead student manager on a lift. And no one held accountable at ND for these dead children.
More good reasons not to root for ND.
Unless they are playing OSU or MSU, I am not rooting for Ol' Notre Dame. Not even if they are playing Satan (Oops, I mean Saban) himself.
and did it in such a way that they get one more home game than us...
Well, fuck them.
After torturing them recently minus this years fiasco. ND is a great visiting stadium to attend with a respectful fan base. Of the 3 rivals its more of a respect thing than hate. They also have that leather looking, spitting, mascot over at ESPN
I now hate this school with a passion. I will cover my hands with my face in disgust if they win. To be honest, I think shit will hit the fan in 5 years or so because I have personal friends who witnessed the ND players commit the actions they were accused of by multiple news sources (see news sources on previous board posts). This season will be wiped and ND will fall off the map from that incident as PSU has.
Rolllllll Damn Tide
Roll Damn Tide!
[deliverance] you shore got a purty mouth boy [/deliverance]
Living in Chicago, the Domers just recently stopped crowing about their 1988 championship. And, if you think Lou Holtz has slobbered the pat several years over marginally relevant ND teams, try thinking about how unbearable the next decade would be if they win this year.
Yes, I will throw up a bit in my mouth when I say it, but ...
Go 'Bama -- Roll Tide!
There's three teams I will always root agains in their bowl games. Our three rivals. Roll Tide, but after you roll, please come up with a new derivative of "Roll Tide" because the lack of variety to your cheers is maddening.
How is this even a question? Bama wins, it's status quo. ND winning a title would be a fate worse than death. Nbc is already simply impossible to watch from all the ball washing as it is. Plus I know way too many little leprechauns that run their damn mouths way too much already. It'd be like freakbass playing in my ears constantly for a decade. You'd better pray that Alabama wins.
I have a good feeling about this... nd loses title game, kelly shows his true colors yet again and bounces for the bigs.... and the trend continues... spikes of success, perpetual mediocrity.
If it happens i demand brian bring back the nd returning to glory shirt
But I am not planning on watching the game because I cannot bring myself to pull for Alabama either.
I hope to see a score of 45-13 Bama when I wake up the following morning. In the end, I prefer Bama because one more SEC national championship will be a lot less painful than ND fans gloating for the next 25 years about their one year of glory in the last 25 years.
Plus, we recruit head to head with ND too much and they were classless in the way they cancelled the UM/ND series. To hell with Notre Dame.
I think it will be close, as Alabama's strength on offense (running) plays into ND's strength on D, but I definitely will not be rooting for ND, even though I also dislike Saban.
To help solve this, I likely won't even watch the game except perhaps the end if it is close. I object to the BCS anyway (I'm an 8-team playoff guy), and don't think it will be a particularly exciting game, so why torture myself with two teams I dislike to boot? Life is too short.
Yup. Sure will. I don't like it, but as I've said before (there was a similar thread before) everyone in south Florida who doesn't root for Miami/FSU/UF seems to root for either Bama or ohio. I'm not even sick of the SEC. I'm sick of them and their made up championships and their bandwagon fans. Sick and tired. Go Irish.
Dead kids > conference bullshit.
Plus, the SEC has had an awful bowl season and if JT Floyd could hold off celebrating his graduation for two weeks, it would be even worse.
the only thing I hate more than ND is OSU
I reverse that, I hate ND more then OSU.
Though frankly, Penn State's arrogance challenged OSU over the last year.
My SEC hate is only usurped by my hatred for all things ohio, nd, and msu.
Wife is from "LA" but I'm rooting for the Mayans.
Better late than never.
1. Meteor. Obviously
2. Tide Blowout - Mostly for selfish reasons to confirm what I've been telling my ND alumni friends - that their season thus far has been essentially a 7-win season with some incredibly lucky breaks that have gone their way to make them undefeated.
3. ND narrow win - Giving the SEC a losing record and at least slightly tempering their god-aweful arrogance.
100. ND blowout - This would be the worst scenario because I'd have to listen to said ND alumni friends rant about how they're back, even though they are clearly not.
No. That whole SEC elitism thing has already been watered down by the losses and close games against what were suppose to be inferior opponents. Even if it weren't ND, it'd be hard to root for any team to win the NC after such a bullshit season.
ND is a competitive rivalry, so normally I'd root against them, but Bama's blatant disregard for the overall well-being of all the athletes on their roster (oversigning) is something I can't support. I will hold my nose and root for the Irish.
Fuck and No.
No way. Ever. Never.
Notre Dame. Reasoning is that next year we will beat the reigning National Champions.
because a lot of games were close for them, their record could be horrible
to hell with ND. yeah, the prospect of getting the defending national champions at home next year is cool, but i'm rooting for alabama. when we played alabama, they flat out kicked our ass in every phase of the game. they were the better team, and i can live with that. when we lost to ND, despite Denard's poor performance, the defense gave us every opportunity to win that game. we threw 6 picks and lost by one damn TD. that's hard to stomach, and now, they're in the title game. bama's where they are because they were better than everyone else. nd is there because everything that could have gone right for them did at the best possible time.
Tell that to Texas a and m who beat bama and LSU and Georgia who should have beet them.
No. I'm not rooting for Notre Dame. I'm not rooting for Alabama either.
I'll be watching the game while drinking heavily and hoping for some sort of implosion that swallows the stadium whole.
I can deal with another Alabama win and another SEC win. Whatever. They have a dominant program and I hope we can challenge that in the future. A ND win means hearing about it from their fans for the next 20-30 years and it'd help their recruiting immensely. To Hell with Notre Dame!!!
absolutely not, no.
really lackluster performance by both teams. A low-scoring fumblefest in which UA is shown to be not all that dominant would be fine with me.
EDIT: It's fine with me if ND wins, IF we beat them in the second game next year. Seems to me that would raise our stature more than ND getting crushed.
The answer is and always will be:
I hate Alabama and the SEC but I'd rather jump in front of a moving bus than see Notre Dame win a national title, therefore roll tide
I don't want to have to listen to all the asshats in the media and ND fans in general blabber on and on and on about it.
There's a big problem here. If Alabama wins, even if the rest of the SEC teams lose their bowl games, the hype will still be there. If Alabama loses then the media might jump on the ''Is football in the north coming back?'' OR they forget about the SEC and everyone else completely and just slurp all over Notre Dame.
Either way the outcome has a 2/3 chance of sucking.
All of our games were winnable this year, except Alabama. I honestly think the Tide are the better team.
And the better laundry detergent.
Fuck Notre Dame!
That is all...
As someone that lives in the heart of SEC country I would prefer ND to win to shut these people up down here.
I wouldn't root for notre dame if there was gun pointed at my head.
Always a good decision. Like Sam Adams.
just not for that asshole Brian Kelly. I can't cheer for him merely because I blame him for killing that kid that was in the tower
no pun intended
I will definitely be cheering on the Irish. This will be another black eye for the SEC
I'm rooting for Bama.
ND competes with Michigan, in it's own backyard, for the midwest/academic/big-time sports/tradition trophy. Alabama can wear the football factory crown without bothering us too much, but those ND graduation rates and academic rankings bother us. Northwestern graduation rates and academic rankings bother us a little, too, but we have big-time sports, so there.
Someone mentioned already that ND fans are not self-aware. They are also oblivious to the rest of college sports. No wonder they have their own network and no league- they are the only thing that matters. I know, Fremeau and all, but the average ND fan that I have known does not care a flying flip about college sports anyplace else.
I hate both of the teams anyway, so weighing which team I hate more doesn't make sense to me. I want to think of what is best for Michigan football.
I laugh every time I hear a Michigan fan say they would rather root for Bama. Simply put, Notre Dame (as much as I dislike them) winning the NC game is better for college football.
The SEC "dominance" and "SEC is the measuring stick" stigmas are outplayed and old. There are many BCS schools that would be great if they could oversign recruits, and then just pull the scholarships of the players that don't pan out.
With Florida and LSU already losing their bowl games, Nebraska putting up 30+ on the SEC champ runner up, it would be good for football for Notre Dame to win and have the SEC go 0-2 in BCS bowl games. Just kick them down a notch.
Michigan wasn't prepared at all for bama, the only team on our schedule to blow us out. Michigan picked it up fast and Notre Dame had to get 5-6 turnovers, at home, to beat us by 7. Simply put, it is better for Michigan to have Notre Dame win the NC. This would give Michigan the first realistic crack, at home in 2013, to knock off the reigning national champ on national telivision at night.
Remove your blinders of hate and think of what is best for Michigan. Notre Dame winning is good for college football and is good for Michigan.
That's what I'm thinking. If Notre Dame wins, it may REALLY give recruits second thoughts about flocking to the SEC. Notre Dame will always recruit well and we will always recruit well. Brady has a national championship ring as an assistant coach that he probably shows recruits too.
If Notre Dame wins this it may be a huge favor to everyone in college football outside the SEC. Besides we're not even going to be playing Notre Dame in a couple years.
Good point about recruiting in general. Didn't think of that.
Hell no, fuck Notre Dame. Dave Brandon should put the daddy pants on and cancel our game in 2014 at ND.
HELL 2 THE NO!
Crimson bath for the Irish.
I would rather chew on glass.
...and the rather painful bowel movements to follow.
I will NEVER root for ND UNLESS they are playing tosu. Of course then I root for a 3-3 tie with 20 turnovers and 300 yards in penalties.
I would love to see Bama win 87-0 and Brian Kelly to turn so purple that Barney is jealous.
Afterwards, Saban admits college bores him and he goes to the Bears. Brian Kelly goes to the Chargers and Chip Kelly goes to KC. Urban Meyer bolts for ND and Douchetonio goes to tosu, where he fails miserably
Hell no. Can't stand the Irish. At least Bama legitimately thumped us this year, unlike our ND loss.
Rooting for a good game - don't like either. Will probably determine my interest late in the game with whichever team is trying to make a late comeback.
Probably best interest for Michigan would be Bama rolling the Irish and "exposing" them. SEC is tough to recruit against, but we recruit head-to-head against ND more often.
Would enjoy seeing Alabama humiliate ND.
We recruit many of the same areas. The last thing we want is those guys winning an NC when they are competing with us for many of the same recruits, including Damon Webb, Mike Weber and Malik McDowell
*Not sarcastic. That shit is gold.
I never under any circumstances root for ND, OSU, or MSU. I don't care how it helps Michigan. Roll Damn Tide.
She's hot. Is she the same actress that play's Jesse's GF on Breaking Bad?
I am rooting for ND....to lose by 100
...for 'Bama to take ND to the woodshed. If ND has a scoring drive of more than 4 plays I'll be stunned. If 'Bama avoids the big play, Irish don't score. Their O is garbage and Saban's had a month to prepare.
But with the all time win percentage at stake it's good for ND to lose any and all games.
Good day to you, sir.
The title for Monday night's MNC game thread: "The Good News is that ONE OF THEM is guaranteed to lose."
But seriously, fuck the Irish.
No where, in any corner of the infinite multiverse, will I ever pull for Notre Dame. All of my infinite doppelgangers hate Notre Dame with the power of a black hole.
May Alabama score 99 points, outgain ND by 950 yards, force 10 turnovers, possess the ball for 55 minutes, win 3 challenges, and have better looking cheerleaders that get more air time. I hope when Brian Kelly's head turns purple (and it will) someone smacks him in the back so it freezes that way. May that leprechaun guy contract something that stings, but is curable with penicillin.
To the 7th circle of the worst hell with Notre Dame.
That's the Bible truth.
One million SEC victories before one ND.
I root for State and the Buckeyes in spades over ND which has to be the most entitled, self adoring bunch of snobs...and 99% of those a-hole fans didn't even go to that little cottage dump of a campus. Read their message boards and you will hear nothing but a bunch of crotchety old racists wishing that they had an all-white, all-Catholic team like in the 40s or the "good old days.."
As far as the Michigan alum/fan comparison, I suppose all who cheer for theirs can be accused of the same. But ND more than any other tradition has a unique set of elitist qualities that even the biggest Michigan slappy can't match (independence; self-appointed near ivy status; etc...) for d-baggery.
Eff them and their apostate traditions. Yes, Roll Tide! Yes, Alabama has a more admirable fan base, believe it.
ND must lose.
Nope, not actively anyways. Either team winning is a dong punch.
hoping for a tie. 0-0.
Alabama blatantly cheats to build their team. Notre Dame has an obnoxious, entitled fanbase, but they don't cheat, other than possibly exploiting a few "gray areas." This makes it an easy choice.
Alabama and the SEC and Nick Saban represent everything that is wrong with college football, from greyshirts to 1 year scholarships to over-signing to football worship over even a hint of academics or behavorial standards.
ROLL OVER THE DAMN TIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will never be rooting for notre lame!
As for "Ohio" I will never, ever, ever, never root for nd.
I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.
