    This is embarrassing to me. This is just the 10 percent of nasty fans that we all have.

    Throughout history the ugly have envied the beautiful, the poor have hated the rich and the stupid have ridiculed the intelligent. The saga continues.

    Purdue Bud Light Commercial

    "Bud Light Salutes the Old Gold and Black"

    Announcer: Today we salute you, Mr. Delusional, Irrational Purdue Boilermaker football fan....

    Announcer: Season after season, year after year, you believe this will be the year of the Rose Bowl.
    Backup singer: We have the World's Largest Drum!

    Announcer: You attempt to make it look like you belong in the same league as the big boys, yet you still can't kick a field goal.
    Backup singer: Field goals are overrated... .

    Announcer: Inevitably, you'll get crushed by Michigan or Ohio State and start showing clips of the 1967 Rose Bowl.
    Backup singer: Does the Golden Girl have a boyfriend?

    Announcer; You will point out that your school is known as the Cradle of Quarterbacks, as though that will dissolve the 17 points you are behind.
    Backup singer: Can Bob Griese throw from the booth?

    Announcer: Go on, ignore those half empty North end zone seats.
    Backup singer: When is next year's Notre Dame game?

    Announcer: And continue to believe that you'll actually win a BCS game sometime this century.
    Backup singer: We did land the first man on the moon...

    Announcer: So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, you Tailgate Titan, and take comfort knowing that when you don't win this weekend, you know that the Notre Dame game is always on TV somewhere, and you can always cheer for whoever they are playing.
    Backup singer: Mr. Delusional, Irrational, and Hopelessly Pathetic Boiler Fan!!!!!!!

    And for all you closet Hoosiers out there:

    Indiana Bud Light Commercial

    "Ode to the Cream and Crimson"

    Announcer: Today we salute you, Mr. Peegs.com IU football fan poster...

    Announcer: You fearlessly predict no worse than a 9-3 season for IU and a BCS bowl, despite the fact that you haven't even made a bowl game since 1993....
    Backup singer: We just had some bad bounces.

    Announcer: Michigan, ha! They have nothing on this years' Hoosiers. We have the best kick returner in the nation.
    Backup singer: And he returns a lot of kicks with our defense!

    Announcer: You claim that the Hoosier will not miss a beat with the new coach, despite the fact that you lost to Southern Illinois and Connecticut last year when he was at the helm.
    Backup singer: They could have taken Florida.

    Announcer: You are so high on James Hardy's ability that you drafted the rights to him when he turns pro with the first pick in your fantasy football keeper league this year.
    Backup singer: He's the next Jerry Rice!

    Announcer: So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, you fearless Peegs poster, and remember that next year is always your year and if not you can just turn your jacket inside out to the Notre Dame side for football season...
    Backup singer: Mr. Peegs.com IU football fan poster guy!

    Those are good Stu! :)

    Back to Bad ole Charlie not telling the press who's his #1 QB, and gasp actually saying that the competition still goes on and that he won't tell the QB who starts till gameday, gasp how cruel can he be!!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

    I guess we can see the difference between doing that at ND and doing that a the Univ of Houston. No national outcry for the mean coach.

    My friends, 8)

    I'll take the Nebraska fan comments seriously. Afterall, who knows more about mediocrity and obscurity? :wink: As far as Trevor Robinson, I think he has taken notice. Would not be shocked to see him join a recruiting class that is already ranked #1.

    I don't think the Irish have lost to any grossly inferior teams since Weis arrived. They just don't beat any of the grossly superior teams. We have identified this as a problem :oops:

    Charlie needs to lose weight! :shock:

    Poor Ole' Charlie

    He's been a college coach for 2 yrs. and he's only been to BCS bowls twice.
    He's had one full recruiting season with a top ten class and is in the middle of a very, very good recruiting season.
    He's lost both bowls but they've been against teams starting the following years rated no.1 and no. 2 in the nation.
    He's attracting top QBs, revamped the ND defense and made tickets almost impossible to find.
    And with all that, people want to talk about his weight. Give me a freakin' break.

    It's apparently a weighty issue in the sports world today.
    A coach should be judged based on performance, and Weis has been undeniably successful.

    As far as the remark by the Nebraska fan, it was witty. :D

    Sorry, Gip...I thought those dittys were pretty funny;

    "Field goals are over rated"

    "Can Griese throw it from the booth".

    Your point is well taken...but that is a pretty good list of programs to be assiciated with, over rated or not.

    I would opine that the schools are "over rated" pre-seasonbecause pre-season rankings are usually biased by the recent success of the teams...and you can't live up to that success year after year.

    I am a Charlie Weiss fan (except for his medical lawsuit...what can I say?) and I believe that he will have y'all back on that list of success before you can say "self-depreciating humor." :)

    While the ditty may be humerous (and I admit it is) it is a perfect example of the typical anti-ND bashers delusional view of the team

    A.
    Reality: ND is not in the top 10 of "overranked" schools and this year isn't even ranked.

    B.
    Reality: it was easily fixed, we got a coach who doesn't accept losing to "grossly inferior" opponents.

    C.
    Reality: I do talk about the 4 we've won since my sophomore year

    D.
    Reality: Perhaps he's confused with SC fans, they I believe have won the most Heismans

    E.
    Reality: Six in a row, two in a row what's 4 games when you're being funny?

    F.
    Reality: I admit it and I'm willing to bet a grand with anyone who want to bet we won't.

    For the record, I thought the ND piece was very funny. It's nothing we haven't heard before, just put to a humorous jingle. Personally, I consider the source. Stu means no harm and has a great sense of humor. Plus, he is intelligent and balanced in his approach to this kind of ribbing, also posting the jingles referring to PU and IU. It's definitely an "insert-name-of-team-here" kind of joke. thanks, Stu.

    On the other hand, I appreciate and am thankful for Gip's impassioned defense of our honor. In times of battle, Gip is our commanding officer.
