10 things I hate about The Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Submitted by The Shredder on September 21st, 2012 at 5:16 AM

I wrote this a few seasons back. Its still good for a chuckle. I cut out 5 to avoid feeding the monkey. What could the new 5 be? 

 

10. We are Notre Dame.... No I will not link it. 

 

9.Notre Dame Stadium 

A highlight from last weeks USF vs ND game

I remember a short time ago when the Big House was outdated but now is a thing of beauty. At least the Big House had some sort of stats and video for replays before all the updates. Going to a game at Notre Dame Stadium is like going back in time to 1955 in Docs DeLorean. I think all the fans drive there wind up old model Ts to the Stadium every Saturday to tail gate. Don't even get me going on the turf and the mess that it is. Seems like every game I watch the turf is a giant mess. Grass flying everywhere. The score board is a thing of 1975 with giant bulbs for score. No replays or stats. I will give it this. It does have cool clip art(like hands clapping) that displays a long the bottom. That is pretty 1992. So if you wanna go back in time then check a game out at Notre Dame Stadium... Bring your top hat.

8.Notre Dame Weather

 
Ehh..2008

I swear to god when I click over to NBC to watch ND the weather is always awful. Its like South Bend has rain monsoons every Saturday. If Michigan has a secondary hating god then Nortre Dame has a shitty weather god. I think they give a rain poncho with every season ticket purchase.

7.The Irish Ginger Dancing Mascot guy... thing.

Every year I have to look at some new pimpled face kid jumping around on the side line. I would love to see this try out. Like a line of 19 year old gingers all lined up doing their best "who stole my lucky charms?" impression. It may get higher ratings then American Idol.

6.The Fan Base(besides the MGO user Irish)

I have met a lot of you and anytime ND loses.. Its the Big Ten officials fault. Our coach sucks. We had dudes hurt. Blah Blah Blah. Armando Allen didn't step out of bounds... Oh yeah? I was there! Remember?
You guys bitched about this play for a good year. I was there. He stepped out. Oh and that Dorito was a tasty treat. 
 
5.Please don't feed the animals and their terrible blogs.
 
 
4.QBs from Douchebagala
For whatever reason the QBs that the Irish push out are either giant douchebags or can't make it in the NFL. The current crop of QBs seem a lot less of the D-Bag variety and more of the won't make it in the NFL variety. Brady Quinn and JIMMAAY! Are of the D-bag mold. The internet pictures are endless. What is going on here Brady? Brady what would mom say? Jimmy put some clothes on! I swear they have Lemon Parties every weekend(don't Google that). Your home planet of Douchebagala calls. Go home... and take Damefan1 with you.
 
3.Dr.Lou 
What can I say? He is the good Dr of spit. He really wouldn't be so bad if he could be fair when asked to pick games that include Notre Dame. It used to be cute but now it makes me go insane. I might even hit my wife if he picks Notre Dame to win the national championship one more time. I sometimes wonder if he has any idea where he is or that his partner Mayday might give him flash backs of World War I. The dude is old... He looked old when he coached ND. He has to be like 110 years old. God bless the old man but I can't take you any longer on my TV. 
 
2.Rudy
A story about a boy's quest to make the Fighting Irish team. It full of fluff and "you can do it" speeches. Like all movies it pushed the drama a bit(the team turning in their jerseys never happened). Most of it is true but you know some is complete crap. I liked it when I was a kid since the kid from "Goonies" was in it.. Now? Not so much. Boo Hoo my brothers a dick... Boo hoo I can't get into ND. Boo Hoo... Girls don't like me... Bah! 

1.Brian Kelly

Hey I like tough coaches as much as the other but I would be embarrassed if I were a fan and the University. The dude is straight up belittling the player. How is this a teaching moment? I got a hold of a mouth reader and this what got out the clip.
KELLY: ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
KELLY: YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE! WHEN I GET YOU IN PRACTICE I WILL CUT OFF YOUR HEAD!
KELLY: I WILL PUNCH YOU RIGHT IN THE FACE! I DON'T CARE! YOU ARE DEAD TO ME! I WILL KICK YOUR DOG ON SUNDAY! DO YOU UNDERSTAND!? YOUR MOM!
It was something like that. I mean come on. Like I said I know football is all about screaming but this is drunkin sailor yelling. I never liked you at GVSU and I don't like you now. I do think he can make it at ND but he has to be careful. The same kinds that hated on RR at Michigan will be doing the same at ND in no time if they haven't already. We saw what negativity can do to a program. It isn't pretty.

 You forgot the officiating.

Notre Dame gets more calls that make you go WTF than any team I've ever saw.  Recently they have not been too bad but man I remember some terrible calls and some Air Force circa 2012 bad spots by the refs when ND is involved
