Notre Dame football, lol...

is there anyone else out there as sick of them as i am? "we went undefeated, we deserve to be in the picture!": boys, you ARE in the picture. standing way the fuck in the background with the other old maids & pretenders. you want some respect? play someone real, join a fucking conference so we can see what you really have. you want in the BIG PICTURE? the huge New Year bowls? run the table in ANY good conference & we'll talk again. try your hand at a year in the SEC or ACC if you have the balls...HAHAHAHAHAHA!:laughing : i would put up any top level team from any of several conferences against those weasels & bet good money on it...i wouldn't vote you in as dogcatchers until you join a football conference.

thanks! that one has been building for years, i'm afraid. every year or three, we get it from certain talking heads that ND should be considered because of their record. but, in a normal year, they play one, maybe two decent teams and expect to be rewarded for it. if it is a BAD year, some dimwit ex-jock can be counted on to say something bright like "yeah, but they're the best 5 and 7 team in the nation!" LOL!

A friend of mine told me that when he was in Catholic grade school they would get 30 minutes more recess when Notre Dame would win. Cultivating their fans at an early age weren’t they.

Georgia lost. Oklahoma lost. Now Alabama or Clemson will lose next. Stop being a hater. This whole year you have been a complaining hater. Relax! Stop the hate.

N.D. usually plays the hardest schedule in the nation year to year. Strength of schedule isn't an argument to join a conference. The SEC as a whole is weak. Look at the non conference games those teams play too. Some of the most obscure teams you can find.

The Big 10 overall is weak. Same with any conference you can name. Independents create the most difficult schedule.

GEORGIA LOST TO TEXAS! That is the team that had the biggest case to be in the CFP final four.

Now go to your safe place and knead some Play-Doh.

just tired of folks that act entitled when they deserve exactly not shit. no hate here, that is in your head. you must be Catholic, LOL! one team loses every time a game is played. WTF are you talking about? NDs strength of schedule is laughable every SINGLE FUCKING YEAR! who do they play that YOU think is top-level competition every year?there is a reason SEC teams are in it every year nearly. they beat each other senseless every season, year in & year out. you get through a season here without having your ass handed to you a few times, you have done something. every college has trouble scheduling out of conference games, they have to be agreed on years in advance. you have to play who is willing to play you. i'm sure ND could get some better teams on their schedule, but then they are not going to be undefeated come December, and would be unable to whine wanting in a big bowl, lol. like i said, join the SEC and play Auburn, Georgia, Alabama, Florida etc EVERY FUCKING YEAR! you run the table, THEN i'll listen to you. every where is safe for me.

Living in chicago, you run into a lot of ND alums. I think most of them are not satisfied with their program, despite the occasional undefeated season (this year, 2012) that gives them hope, they realize that they arent a truly elite program like an AL, clemson, OSU.

It's not ND's fault that USC and florida state had down years this year when they beat them. I think Hippy does have a point, in that ND didnt have a win against a dominant team, and so they were exposed against clemson in the playoff semifinal. FWIW, i thought ND was competitive until their top DB (a probable high nfl draft pick) went down early in the game. Still, clemson was clearly the more talented team. I think ND's best WR would have been the #4 WR on clemson.



The SEC is no doubt the best football conference, but theyre rather top heavy, with the best being really good but the bottom of the conference being nothing special.



I think ND fans like to complain that a lot of hate directed toward their program is because of an anti-catholic bias. I didnt think that was true but people have been killed over such conflicts (ireland in the 80s and 90s) so maybe there is something there?

LOL! I am an atheist.

Baba is right. N.D. did have a very tough schedule on paper. Some teams just had off years. I am not going to debate the obvious, excepted by experts fact that EVERY year Notre Dame's schedule is considered one of the hardest schedules. There are no cream puff non FCS schools.

They lost against Clemson. Nobody else beat them. Not Michigan, Stanford, Florida State, USC, Northwestern, Syracuse or Virginia Tech.

Alabama played the Citadel and Georgia played Austin Peay! LOL! And they play teams like like every year.

You made a post immediately after a team lost. Like it was the most important injustice of your life and you had to post it. LOL!

Notre Dame turned down Randy Moss. That says it all. They could take less qualified athletes but they don't. They are always in the top graduation rate and top academic average. That makes their road up hill every year. I root for them because they are underdogs that rise enough to bring out the haters. Every year they make some noise in a few sports.

I have never hated on another college team. Why would you? It is a bunch of college kids playing a game and you think they are acting entitled. WTF??? Chill out guy!

i'm not hating on the team. it is their FANS (LOL!) and athletic dept that bring out the "fuck you!" in me. only time in my life i root for Miami is when they are going to get to kick Notre Dames ass. the University sets their schedule. there are actually TWO reasons they will never join a conference. one is the $$$ they get with their private TV deal. they would have to share (how un-Christian a concept! sharing? can you believe it?) if they belonged to a conference. two is fear of being exposed as not-quite ready for prime time BEFORE prime time when they get (you guessed it!) MORE $$$ and exposure which equals...you guessed it-MORE $$$. which worries them most is not yet apparent. i am chill, i just despise money-grubbing damned weasels and hypocrites. always have, always will. defend them all you want...
