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.
