    I don't hate ND but of course I hate scUM. I actually am a Brady Quinn fan and dig the shamrock. Good academic school as well. I do however strongly dislike both Charlie Weiss and ESPins lovefest on ND.

    DiamondBuck Football is 100% physical, 100% mental.

    It's simple for me... I hate Michigan.

    They've too hurt us too many times-
    our shot at the BCS championship game in 2003
    our undefeated season in 1996
    our undefeated season in 1993
    our undefeated season in 1969

    Ruined my 21st, 27th 38th and 44th Birthdays

    Like I said, not even close.

    I hate tsun. Plain and simple. There is no one else that could ever replace the white hot, burning hatred that I feel for them.

    Then there is ND. No doubt I do not like them. They are a close second to tsun. and here is why.

    Beyond these two, however, there are simply teams that I do not respect.

    Good list, although I think the 10-10 tie in 1973 also belongs on there. That cost us the NC that year.

    This is from a post I made last year:

    Reasons to hate Notre Dame:

    1. They have their own NBC contract.

    2. They have 1 more Heisman than tOSU, due to media coverage back in the 40's, 50's, and early 60's that focused primarily on ND. Paul Hornung QB's a 2-8 team and wins a Heisman in 1956? Johnny Huarte wins in 1964? Please.

    3. They cost us an NC in 1935, with a TD pass thrown by Bill Shakespeare. Here's a link if you don't know the story of that game.
    http://www.nd.edu/~observer/09241999/Sports/1.html

    4. "Touchdown Jesus".

    5. They pray for victories, like God cares who wins a football game. Apparently, they haven't been praying enough since 1993, their last season that ended with a bowl victory.

    6. "Play Like a Champion Today" sign above the stairs that the players hit on their way to the field.

    7. Their Board of Directors, not the AD, fired Ty Willingham for not winning enough. And they pretend to act like they're different, like it's not all about winning and money.

    8. "Win one for the Gipper" - Hollywood Bullshit that helped build the legend.

    9. The Four Horsemen - Their Oct 18, 1924 trip to play Army in NYC initiated another Irish legend. Once the great sportswriter Grantland Rice penned the words "ÔÇťOutlined against a blue, gray October sky the Four Horsemen rode again"; some slick ND student acting as a publicity aide had the 4 guys pose on top of horses. Another shitty legend was created.

    10. The "Subway Alumni".

    11. Paul Hornung's asinine comments about academic standards and the types of athletes they need to recruit.

    12. As an independent with a large fan base, they get to pick and choose their bowl opponents. They won the NC in 1973, after we had the 10-10 tie in AA, and then smacked defending champion USC in the Rose Bowl; by defeating Bama by a point on a late field goal. In the first poll after the 10-10 tie, ND was 5th behind both tOSU and scUM.

    13. Green uniforms. However, I was happy when they last wore them against BC in 2002.

    14. The Golden Dome, and the helmets that resemble it.

    15. The College Football Hall of Fame is now in South Bend, instead of Ohio, where it started and where it belongs.

    16. Back in the 1930's, Catholic nuns would give children in the schools candy bars after Notre Dame victories. This was a manipulative way of creating young ND fans, similar to the way Ronald McDonald has been used. I got this story from relatives of mine who got those candy bars when they were kids.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    I hate Michigan, but I want them to be successful so that we can shatter their dreams and so that the Big 10 gets the respect it deserves.

    I hate Notre Dame because of the 16 reasons BB73 gave and some more, I don't want them to win anything, ever.

    I hate them both equally, but I wish a special kind of shittiness on ND

    I don't hate either team. I don't know that I hate any team. I hate aspects of a lot of teams: LSU and their never wearing anything but their away jerseys, Miami for calling themselves "The U," Michigan's tradition of giving one player the #1 jersey, etc.

    Typically, in a ND-UM game, I'll root for Michigan. Michigan is in the Big Ten, and I root for the Big Ten in non-conference games. However, sometimes I'll root for Notre Dame. For instance, if Michigan is getting too much love from the media, I'd like to see someone knock them down. Even if that someone is Notre Dame.

    martinss01 blissfully stupid

    i hate *insert florida team here* the most.

    between nd and scum. i probably hate nd more. my feelings toward scum are so much deeper and more primal than simple hate. though hate is a significant portion of that concoction. however, hate requires thought and consideration. what i feel towards scum feels more like instinct. the thought of having to root for nd angers me. the thought of having to root for scum revolts me to a level i have never experienced before. its like the very worst sour candy in your mouth only x 100 and bitter instead of sour. its revolting and contrary to human nature.

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    OK. Final exam time.

    1. State one way in which a Notre Dame victory over Michigan in any way, shape or form benefits Ohio State. Be sure and include rankings, media coverage and bowl selections in your answer and indicate a knowledge of league prestiege and how wins and losses promote or demote a league and all the teams in a league.

    I'll assume you mean the Ohio State football team. And by "benefit," that you mean it helps their situation (moves them up in the rankings, or in the Big Ten standings). If that's true, then I can't think of a single time. However, I'm sure that when Michigan beats Notre Dame, it helps Ohio State by increasing Ohio State's strength of schedule, which is part of most (if not every one) of the computer rankings.

    But isn't it great seeing Lloyd whining about the refs after a loss? Who cares who beat them, as long as I get to see him whining.
