Thanks ;)

 

Just a few come to mind.

Faust’s last game

Losing to Syracuse and Navy the same year and watching Weis walk off. I knew he was a dead man walking. You could see the tears in his eyes.

I won’t say his name but the “rape incident.”

I was in high school and a virgin in 1993. I was invited to go to a road trip & college party with some friends, but turned them down to watch the ND vs Boston College game. 2 of them lost their virginity on that trip while I watched ND lose and I didn’t lose my virginity for another 13 months.

Winning the game @ #2 FSU in 2014 and then having it be robbed away from us by the refs when the FSU player grabbed our receiver at the line of scrimmage.

 

First of all, even if our guy was blocking their guy that NEVER gets called. Let alone in the final 30 seconds of game.

 

Second, if you watch closely, their guy grabs our guy first!!

 

We beat them. Jameis Winston is a trash human being as well.

 

Runner-up: getting smoked by Michigan last time we played them and that miracle win they had against us in like 2015 or whatever.

Matt Lovecchio and the O not being able to get across the 50 yard line until late in the 3rd quarter against the Beavers in the Fiesta Bowl after our team was talking mad trash.

 

 

 

Really just that entire Fiesta Bowl.. I think 2001

 

Every Fiesta bowl

Every Fiesta bowl

 

 

Yes but that was a unique lopsided loss where the scoreboard actually looked better than the production on the field. We looked like a pee wee team playing a varsity team.

 

 

 

Ok Check these next three out:

 

 

Lou Holtz losing to Northwestern and Air Force in the same year.

 

 

Brian Kelly losing his team twice in 2014 and 2016.. They quit on him.

 

 

 

My first game in ND stadium we lose to USC 48-14 after trading 2 touchdowns a piece the Trojans ratted off 34 straight. I forget the year but early 2000s.

I was at that game as well. My very first ND game, sitting in the south end zone in my grandfather's row of seats he had held onto since the late 40s. I still vividly recall the emotional letdown after that FG sailed through the uprights.

 

I was also at the 2005 USC game under the lights. Ugh.

 

I went to many games in between and afterward but these two games stick out to me as being the worse thing to live though as an ND fan. Complete emotional deflation walking out of the stadium.

Let's see...

 

Born in 1989. Was at the 1995 Northwestern game (don't really remember it, though). My first real memory inside ND stadium was the 2005 Bush Push game. I attended the 2007 Navy game. I was a student for the 2009 UCONN game, the 2010 Tulsa game, and the 2011 South Florida game. I went to both Georgia games in 2017 and 2019. I was at the Cotton Bowl in 2018. I also went to the Michigan game in 2019.

 

I'd say it's been pretty rough being a Notre Dame fan for my entire life.

2 worsts...

 

1) Loss to Boston College in '93. Was my freshman year.

 

2) Bush push game. Was the first game that I got my wife to really get into a game. She was yelling and screaming at the TV with me throughout the game. For a week later, I had a pit in my stomach and felt like crap.

 

 

But, the Bush-Push game was a good turning point for me. I realized that I was taking it way too seriously. I took a different attitude of allowing myself to intensely get into a game, during the game. But, when the game was over, I must be able to move on with a smile on my face. Sports are supposed to be fun.

Remember in 1964 vs $C i in Ara;s first year when the refs made a phantom holding call on a 1-yd, TD plunge and $C came back and scored in the last minute to ruin a perfect season and take away a National Championship.

 

The phantom clip called on ND in the Orange Bowl on Rocket's punt return for a TD that would have denied Colorado a national championship.

 

Rocket losing the Heisman to Ty Detmer of BYU was a bummer too, He was easily the best player in the nation.

In chronological order:

 

1) 1991 Orange Bowl: Rocket’s last game and what would of been an all-time career finish. Freaking BS clip call nullifies his punt return for a TD in the final minute of the game. Colorado survives 10-9 and wins the National Championship.

 

2) 1993 Boston College Game: One week after defeating the greatest team ever we get boat raced for 3 quarters. The 4th quarter comeback was stunning and I thought we were getting another NC...and the kick was good, damn it.

 

3) 2005 Bush Push: Jeez this might be the most painful. The Eagles loose the Super Bowl in February to the Patriots...Charlie Weis is hired away from the Patriots to lead the Irish the following day (although it was not exactly a secret). Then my first child is born in May and my luck had turned!!! I believed God was making up for the Super Bowl loss to me with the way the Irish were playing. The latest “Greatest Team Ever” comes to South Bend and gets outplayed...until 4th and 21..dear God, Why? Then...then there is the fumble. The only possible way the Irish loose there is if the damn ball goes out of bounds and stops the clock!!! It does...and there is time for one more play. Yea, this one still hurts.

It hurts me that I was physically present for the first two.

Ty Willingham/Firing of George O'Leary

USC 2002

Fiesta Bowl against Oregon State

Lorenzo Booker choosing FSU

The season where we had two wins and I turned off my television for the entire season, except two games.

 

I wasn't paying attention when we lost to FSU in '93...

I wasn't paying attention when Rockne died either...
