I've lived in the Midwest around nd fans, and they are the most annoying fans ever. Throw on top of that listening to Lou Holtz stuttering about them every day and its almost unbearable. However, I'm currently living in South Carolina and SEC fans as a whole piss me off WAY more than ND fans. Here in Columbia everyone acts like their program is equal to Bama/LSU just because they're in the same conference. You know how pathetic South Carolina fans are? Last year they made a shirt commemorating their season because they won 11 games for the first time in their history. Michigan went through "The Horror" and RR in the last 4 yrs. And on the bookends of that time frame, which was one of the worst stretches of Michigan football, we won 11 games. On top of that, at least once a week someone sees me in my Michigan apparel and is a jackass and tries to give me shit and say "App State Haha" while snickering. So ND is the most cocky, arrogant and obnoxious fan base. The SEC as a whole are a bunch of complete jackasses. So when broached with the thought if a ND-Bama Championship, I find myself hoping the Mayans were right and the world ends before I have to see that game played.
