No fucking way!
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
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:
