OT: Are you rooting for Notre Dame?

Submitted by MGoVoldemort on January 3rd, 2013 at 1:23 PM

Naturally, Michigan fans are born with a disdain for Notre Dame. Recent years, however, have given us a more than sufficient dislike of any and all things SEC. That being said, who will you be rooting for in the NC game?


For me, my hatred of the SEC will win out here and I'll be rooting for the Irish.

...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.

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.

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.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
