Worst thing as a ND fan...

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.

 

This is hard to beat; I genuinely LOLed. :rofl:

 

In person: 1989, No ND v. No. 7 Miami. I was a sophomore in high school. We had moved from S. Florida that year and came down for the game. The Miami fans were awful: throwing peanuts, obscenities, logging cups like hand grenades at the cluster of ND fans sitting in one section. I'm sure it was similar to what fans going to Columbus experience. ND got outplayed, fine. I knew it was over in the 3rd when ND got two sacks and a clipping penalty in their favor. It was third and 43. Craig Erickson completed a 45 yard pass to Randall "Thrill" Hill for a first down (I really hated Hill). I don't recall anything going ND's way after that.

 

The rest have been mentioned but I'll add my flavor. Bush Push in 2005 was the angriest I have ever been over a football game. I thought ND would get killed. What a game . . . I was talking with a friend long distance most of the 4th quarter. We were going crazy: "They're gong to do it!!!" The Push gets most of the discussion, but that sickening feeling entered me on 4th and 9 when Leinert hit Jarrett who broke a tackle and went 63 yards down the sideline. You knew; I knew. When Bush went in, I rifled my first cell phone off the well without saying bye to my friend.

 

Syracuse in 2008: I never thought I'd see the day that ND players were pelted with snowballs in their own stadium. It was sad; it was pathetic on the part of the fans. But I also got it even though I would never participate in that. The year before was the worst team

 

Getting killed by Alabama and the Lennay Kukua aftermath: I loved Manti as a player. I really, really wanted him to win the Heisman. I thought he embodied everything that was right about college football. The entire world piled on but Manti deserved it. The lie is a big part of the reason he was even in New York that year. P.S. Ef Johnny Fooseball anyway.

 

Colorado: Zorich played one of the greatest defensive games I have ever seen. Ef the ref.

In no order:

- Declan

- BC 93 and desecrating our field and locker room

- Bush Push (getting heckled by a UW player who kept yelling “PAC 10!”)

- Bobby Brown ‘99 Michigan penalty

- 2007 Navy

 

But the one that stings the most is Tulsa. A twenty one hour drive home stewing in my own anger...

I still get so disgusted with that Tulsa game. The program was so ridiculously out of control at that point. That one senior day where the student body threw snowballs at the players was pretty bad as well.

Bush Push sticks out the most to me.

I don't remember the 93 BC game, I was 10. I'm not sure I even started following the Irish yet at that point.

I know I hate Oregon State for some reason but I can't 100% remember why so obviously that doesn't beat out the USC game.

I still have a hatred for the Fiesta Bowl, again, don't remember exactly why. I know it goes past the OSU game where Jaylon blew out his knee because I remembered being pissed that the Irish was going to be playing in that Fiesta Bowl.

I remember lots of details about the Bush Push though. Even more than some games more recent.

Worst thing are miserable low life c*nts like NDMike. Imagine actually taking joy in seeing ND get embarrassed. I’m not saying he should kill himself, but if I were in his shoes, I’d seriously consider it.

 

When have I ever stated that I enjoy seeing the Irish lose? I have said repeatedly that Kelly has taken ND as far as he can so when they lose a game that could define the program and announce that ND is back, he falls on his face.

I don't like seeing ND lose, I've just grown to accept it. Especially when it's a game against the big boys.

The night I gave up on my Irish and became a Bama fan. Can’t take this crap anymore. I will be able to have enjoyable Saturday evenings, be able to say Roll Tide, and have faith that my team will win. I used to accept the losses cause I knew when we finally win, it will be magical like the Cubs and Bears. I would rather be a fan of a team like the bulls of the 90’s and Black Hawks. Screw this fn team.
