This is not 1988, Catholics vs. Convicts is over

You should see the hate and racism being spread on UM sites by ND fans...

The "N" word is being used every other word towards there players and also towards there fans

I am embarrassed for our Team, fans, and University.

Like ND legend C. Zorich has said many times, were no Angels

Plenty gets swept under the rug at ND

What forums are they posting on?

I guess those "ND fans" should realize our team is comprised mostly of black kids too

I want to see screenshots. Those people are not from the university. probably still stuck in the 80s. However, we are not the thug school Miami is. They're consistent cheaters and celebrate thug life. That's not us. And you can say we're not angels, but there are degrees and we're not even in Miami's league. I F***ing hate their school. They should've gotten the death penalty like USC.

This is still Catholics vs. Convicts.

Or perhaps there may be a fair amount of **** posters using ND handles to troll fans of teams we play. I dont know how many times i see it week in and week out on various boards of just about any team. Dont think for a moment trolls wont seize on the CvC history between these teams.

Yep. No question about it. Just look at the ESPN comment section and you’ll see people trolling other teams just for the pure fun of it. As you said, some are fake handles. I wouldn’t look too much into it. We have our bad eggs just as any school does. It is what it is in this day and age.

Not looking to getting into a argument with you and you can hate them as much as you want but you sound a little 1988

How do they celebrate the thug life, because there having fun on the sidelines with a turnover chain. The University of Miami is no ND but it is a fine University.

Do a little research, check from the Charlie era up and we have a lot not to be proud of.

They need to switch to rooting for Michigan. I feel like most Michigan fans I knew growing up were more trailer park-ish.

What sites are you seeing this on?

Franco just posted a link that had some of the same things by Miami fans. Take it with good gesture that they know we are good and it’s a rivalry game...in a sense.

If it's 1988, you're not paying attention. Hell, just read some newspapers. Second, our "not so good" things really aren't that bad. And, we actually suspend the players for entire seasons. Does Miami...? F*** no. You're equivocating apples and oranges... It's typical millenial baloney.

First of all, the Irish are like the Cowboys or Yankees. We have a nationwide following and our fans are unique in that they come from all walks of life. If there are idiots out there spewing racist vitriol, it's because the odds are higher that we'd have "fans" like that....

These are the same guys Rattler and I sat next to against Maryland in 2011. They claimed, out loud and for hours, that Derrick Mayes wasn't as good as "William Floyd". Nuff said.

I hope this isn't true, need to have more class than that. if true seems like some ND fans have been watching to much 30 for 30 and are trying to recreate the Catholics vs Convits rivalry.

In the 80's, the ND fanbase wasn't using 'the "N" word .... every other word towards Miam players and also towards there fans."

We have the most polite fans in the nation. Everybody who comes here says that and it's was that way in the 60's and is still like that today.

I was in the Orange Bowl in 1989. You want to see hate? I have never seen hate from a fanbase like that. I've been to Michigan, USC, Tennessee, Penn State and other venues and have never seen anything like the hate that I saw coming from Miami fans.

It's the internet where people posting behind anonymous names go to release tension. OF course this happens, but only a fool would generalize an entire fanbase on the actions of anonymous internet fans.

it’s still Catholic’s vs Convicts IMO. It’s ok to say that.
Look up the 7th floor crew song that Greg Olsen and other players sang. (2004 I believe)
Are the Irish perfect, far from it. But Miami’s program is next level. Go Irish !!

Catholics vs Convicts was greatness. From the Irish point-of-view it summed up the rivalry perfectly. In the late 1980's.

That phrase will follow these teams any time they play in the future, and with the ACC contract, there will be many games to come.

I have no idea what the players on the U of M team are like now. I don't think Richt wants that mentality on the team now. I'm pretty confident the University does not want that mentality/image/look now.

Miami is a good university, ranked #46 in US News and World Report, tied with the University of Wisconsin, ahead of Purdue, University of Washington, and many other schools considered to be very good.

At the moment I'm not hating on Miami. That could change, however. That 58-7 drubbing in 1985 was the worst, and those fans were pretty terrible.

Our Athletic director / administration sucks. They've essentially ruined two of the best rivalries in all of college football.

I feel it should be left in the past also. That was a special era that this phrase was for specifically. Today is much different in many ways really. No need to rehash a great era when it doesn't apply in modern times.

Call me crazy and overconfident, but I hope ND comes out with their own turnover chain to mock the hell out of the Hurricanes. Demoralize them on the field and on the sideline. With that said, I agree as well - Catholics vs Convicts "made sense" in 1988. Now? Just leave it alone. It's like a movie franchise that was epic as a first movie and then was hyped and marketed to hell and back for the sequels which were completely different. But, hey, whatever gets viewers I suppose?

"Catholics vs. Convicts" has to stop and stay in the past. It was their phrase, THEIR time.

Students and fans have to come up with their own "thing", "phrase".

Todays rivals aren't the same as yesteryears rivals (except for USC)

Hell, there USED to be a rivalry between Purdue and ND. Today, no.

It's up to the students and more importantly, the players who is their "rival".

Posted on the internet.....come on , that's not worthy of deep analysis,,,

If we have an incident at the game or any game that demonstrates ND fans have a racist streak then we can discuss,

But please , posted on the internet could be Nazis or Russians for all we know

For me a name a face a person of some kind is necessary or its just nothing.

Internet sites only tell you their are an abundance of asses online,,,,,thats a conclusion we should have all drawn by now

aloha

I must agree. When it comes to intermittent schedule appearances, the teams/students are the ones to develop the rivalry and/or hype going into the games. Obviously, ESPN will need to do their part for ratings as well.

For those of you that think its ok to call those kids Convicts your just wrong man.

Look up the word if you need a refresh.

Do you have a kid, if I called your kid a convict you'd kick my a**
