That was like stubbing your toe, yelling, grabbing your toe, feeling better, than stubbing it again.

This is how it works for ND haters. Even if we had blown out everyone on our schedule they'd spin the argument that it was a weak schedule not to be compared with that of a SEC schedule.
I wouldn't expect anything different. They have the angles they need to create their opinions and so do we.
Because it makes their opinion seem legitimate to themselves, they hang on our 3OT win against PITT, the game after our emotional road victory at OU and the fact that they crushed the only common opponent we have, while we "squeaked" by.
What most fail to acknowledge is that Notre Dame was dealing with growing pains all season long and still managed to come out unscathed.
They don't study our games like we do. They don't see the nature of our defense. The defense we almost solely relied upon while our offense struggled to define itself. A defense that will literally let you trickle down the field with the short pass knowing you have no chance of getting in the end-zone... Knowing that you WILL eventually make the fatal mistake and they WILL take advantage of it... Knowing that when you HAVE to run, you will fail.
We are not "there" yet. We didn't open up the season well oiled like Bama did. ND has been a work in progress and will continue to be up until and through Jan 7th. Bama has been there before, has been winning for a while and knows what they do well. When you watch them against Michigan, you see the same team that played against Georgia. That is why they don't respect us... Because they have yet to see our best and refuse to believe it will be evident on Jan 7th.
We can talk about Golson's progression and talents, Riddick's multi-dimensions, Eifert's reliability and Nix's heart until we're blue in the face, it won't change the haters mindset. They need to see what they think is the impossible and what we know is the inevitable.

I win! I am the smartest guy on this thread! I absolutely loved this video! These people were so darned funny. Keep it up! Guys, this is part of the conspiracy to bring ND football back to glory, or the CTBNDFBTG.
Certain mindless dweebs, positioned in the right place, spewing the same mindless platitudes a are reassuring fans, player and coaching staffs throughout the SEC that the are dominant and have the game in the bag, because, after all, "they play with each other."
"Your island?" “You mean Ireland?” ~ “Yeah. It's mine.” ~ “You're a madman.” ~ Stephen nods and starts laughing, “I've come to the right place, then.”

I dont recall many big games the Irish were favored to win in the last 40 or so years. They have gotten little credit when they did win. This year will be no different. I hope its decisive. I got into a discussion with an idiot the other day. He said no way those northern boys can come down here and play with those southern boys and win. I asked him if he knew where Tuitt and Nix were from. He said "who"? He said the only one they got is that Teo kid and he wouldnt start for Bama or Georgia or LSU. I said yeah you're right. He is from Hawaii anyway. And just ended the conversation.

Allie LaForce was Miss Ohio back in the day. She works for Fox 8 Cleveland and I believe is dating pitcher Joe Smith.
Dougie Gottlieb was last seen on the silver screen in the critically acclaimed movie, "The Hobbit"
Am I the only one who picked up on Dougie rifling through Allie's purse under the sports desk looking for plastic......errr, I mean a tissue?
