for being the only team in college football who has never lost a game by being outplayed. Theres always an excuse.

1) the refs

2) the weather

3) the recruits, the coach, someone stubbed their toe, ect ect ect this list can go on for days

Can't say that I hate ND per se, but their fans can be annoyingly delusional.  They really believe Notre Dame football is 100% unparalleled and unique.  Rubbish.

They have the dumbest mascot in all of sports.  I say "Notre Dame Fighting Irish" on shirts and stuff as a kid, and I thought that was a nickname people gave them, but they had a REAL mascot that was different.  It wasn't until my sophomore year of college til I realized that is their actual "mascot."

- Because Bo did.

- The way they cheated to try to get 9-year-men Dimmick and Philbrook into the 1910 game.

- After the 2003 ass-kicking game, my little bro picked up a discarded sign in the parking lot that said, "LOSE LIKE A CHAMPION TODAY" and carried it around a while.  An ND fan came up to us with a sanctimonious look on his face and said, "Hey, we will."

- Those stupid up-and-down-fist arm movements the fans make in the stands.

- The 1812 Overture: ND's AWESOME and totally pumped up version of JUMP AROUND.

- The way the wind died for Harry Oliver's field goal.

- Tyrone Willingham's fake-confident raised finger in the air to go for one after a touchdown.

- Because they keep the grass mown high for speedy teams.

- The guys (?) in kilts.

- The tinny, no-bass sound of their marching band.

- Jeff Samardzija looks like a girl. Seriously. An ugly girl, but definitely a girl.

- People seem to like their fight song, even though its composer is on record as saying it's "rather amateurish."

- Brady Quinn was drafted too high.

- Jimmah Ostrich was drafted too high.

ND player climbs team mates back to block Michigan's last second field goal attempt to win.  As a result the NCAA implemented a rule prohiting player from climbing on one another.
