I have despised ND and particularly so since the darlings were given the Cotton Bowl with a 7-3 record in 1969 to play #1 Texas over LSU. LSU's best team of the 60's at 9-1 with Cholly Mac's only victory over the Bear was dumped. And the Tigers unanimously voted to stay home without a bowl. The Irish have a different of rules which apply to only them, their privilege, their NBC network.
As for Bama, they also own the SEC office since the Bear in the early 60's and always will apparently. They get the benefit of no holding calls for a season or two, easiest scheduling possible, biased officials and a conference leadership constantly in servitude to the Tide machine. I have never and will never pull for them in any capacity and don't give a damn about SEC "loyalty" to a conference where it's own office spreads it's legs for the Tide as often as possible.
I would rather pass two more kidney stones and insert a 40 gauge Foley french catheter directly after than pull for either of them.
I intend to watch either the History Channel or Modern Marvels and hit the sack by 9 since I will be at work by 0600 tomorrow.
Regards to All,
I hear ya Jim. I'll be at the gym tonight, just like any other Monday, then probably History Channel, Golf Channel, or Outdoor Channel when I get home. My only loyalty is to LSU and I don't care about any of these other schools. BTW, I haven't watched any of the other bowl games either other than our's.
I actually get alond very well with my 2nd ex-wife, WB.
Both lasted 17 years, but I am pretty sure that I don't have another 17 years left so I don't think I will do that again............
Hope they both lose and Mustbooger gets strep throat.
I've been divorced for nearly 10 years and I'm not looking at doing that again anytime soon. I'm enjoying my freedom far too much lol
If you had another 17 years again, Ken, I respectively bow to your infinite patience with the opposite sex....LOL
Notre Dame and their elitist attitude. You should already be nauseated by the attention they are getting for winning out on that sorry ass schedule. If they were to win this game, you had better beleive I will not listen to Mike and Mike or watch sportscenter until next season's kickoff. I have met many a ND fan and they are the most annoying, self centered people that you will ever be around. They really beleive that everything revolves around Notre Dame. They will belittle every other University in the 50 states because any kid that goes elsewhere "just does not get it". If you don't go to ND you will be flipping burgers for the rest of your life. I can go on and on with their arrogance. As much as I don't like Bama, I can respect their program. We can reverse the trend of the last two games because we will always play them. Once ND starts to get the continual respect for going undefeated by beating Navy, Pitt, Purdue, Air Force, Wake Forest, Boston College, Mich St. and BYU: they will be a virtual lock for the NC game or the 4 team playoffs. Even their signature wins USC (highly overrated with a backup qb), Mich St. ( who always starts the season in the top 10 but always ends out of the top 25) and Oklahoma (well you saw what ATM did to them) they have not been challenged. Stanford is the only quality win that they have had all year. And by the way Pitt and BYU lost to them due to some bogus home cooking calls.
All that to say RTR.
Let's go Domers!
I will rotate my allegiance throughout the game to spread the hate. I am rooting for a giant sinkhole to open up under the stadium during warm ups.
Is it bad that I was hoping for a Batman DKR style game minus the nuclear weapon and all?.
I don't think they have a chance in hell, but GEAUX IRISH GEAUX!!!!
I just hope Saban is successful with the Browns next year!
I win $400 in my NCAA Pickem league if Bama covers 9.5. If they cant cover that then I hope they lose by 4 TDs. I hate that it comes down to this.
Hartjb and Texasfence. Kiss my Catholic butt!
With all due respects of course....
God prevails tonight because if saban wins he seals his fate. CFB or, and ( God's will ) shall be exerted and Bama will lose. Look at the rule changes because of the SEC dominance. The BCS is going by the wayside. Limits on signings and roster llimits in our Conference have all resulted from the Southeastern Conference dominance. If Bama wins then they are going to bring more scrutiny upon themselves.
Have we been screwed over by the Irish in the past. Hell yes! But, they have not been in a conference but they have still played the toughest schedule year in and year out. They played Miami, Ohio State, Michigan, LSU, Bama, USCw and many others when those schools were on top of their game. Let someone argue with that point.
Who did they play this year?????
Come on! Really? That is weak. Look at the history. Aside from this year they have never shied away form anybody. They played Schembecklers Wolverines. They played Jimmy ajohnson's Hurricanes, they played Woody Hayes'.... You get the point.
They had a self imposed bowl ban because they felt that their mission in this world was to educate young people. Look at their academic ranking.
Academic ranking is 17 Nationally. Only 9,000 undergrads with a tuition of $46,000.00 a year.
And that has WHAT to do with football?
I hope they both lose badly. If only it was possible.
Man SEC SEC SEC Screw the irish!
