People dislike them because of their obnoxious, entitled fanbase. Not the other way around I'm sure.


Are they as obnoxious as this post?

I don't mind Irish fans that much, except when they start doing the "Our Mother Notre Dame" and all this other BS nonsense. Be a fan of the Irish, I don't care at all. Hell, I love Dublin. But stop pretending Notre Dame is the college equivalent of the Pope or Virgin Mary

Yes.


I was just trying to explain the difference. Their fans and that school don't have the entitled attitude they do because people hate them..

How is a fan base entitled? That doesn't make a ton of sense to me.

This is going to sound like generalizing but I have a bunch of ND fan friends, and the Irish have some celebrity fans. Over the years how many gift rankings, bowl bids and BCS at large's was ND handed beause of who they are? Then you get a year like this, they are unbeaten, and fans (that I know) and guys like Mike Golic are b**ching because their ass isnt getting kissed enough.

I'll say, I've been to South Bend for games twice, loved it both times, had no rooting interest, and fans were awesome. So I am not saying ALL fans. But if you don't see a sense of smugness to them, I dont know what to tell you. Everything about that school, is the greatest this, the best that, the best traditions, the best place to see a game. Add into the way they are treated by the NCAA..I dont mean to go off an a hateful tangent, but I was earlier just responding to why people dislike them. Its not that hard to see.

Ummm... Nd has a massive contract with nbc and the bcs. I think that could factor into the the bcs bias.

Rooting for a sports team because of religion rubs me the wrong way and I grew up around kids who definitely did that (with ND).

That sounds like every fan base; you just notice it more because ND gets more media coverage. And understandably so--they have a huge following. There's nothing wrong with bowls following the money.

Agreed. Hell I'm a WVU fan and I hate our fanbase. But Notre Dame is nation wide, so the dislike comes with the territory.

Note: this isn't hate

Alabama (if they win, and I am assuming they will) will absolutely murder Notre Dame in the championship game. If Barkley was starting this game, I doubt ND walks out a winner.

Lane Kiffin is a terrible coach. Should've called that play action like 3 plays before he did.

Alabama will murder ND. It's not even hating. ND has no chance against any of the top 10.

Looking at ND's results....unreal.

Beat Purdue by 3 points at home

Beat Michigan 13-6 at home

Home overtime win against Stanford (quality win, IMO)

BARELY beat Pitt, lousy Pitt, at home in triple overtime only due to a missed field goal

If they somehow find a way to beat Alabama, it will be their defense. Period. Their offense is going to get smothered against the Crimson Tide

Should be OSU-ND for the title. :pop: /bitterOSUfan

Really, Gene Smith is an idiot for not taking the bowl ban last year.

And I dont understand how all that is somehow better than losing to Stanford or Johnny Football

Also beat Oklahoma on the road. They had a pretty tough schedule.

They beat Stanford (#8 BCS), Oklahoma (13), and Michigan (19). Will Alabama beat them? Most likely. I'd say they've got a pretty good shot against anyone else though.

Alabama and Notre Dame have the top two defenses in the country. No one can argue that.
