Notre Dame Fans Continue To Trash Alabama With Offensive National Championship T-Shirts
Dec. 27, 2012, 12:43 PM
In the month leading up to Notre Dame's first trip to the national championship game in more than two decades, Irish faithful have created a series of T-shirts bashing their opponent, Alabama.
Notre Dame is winning the trash-talking battle with the series of racy shirts, but the last thing Notre Dame needs is to provide a feisty Crimson Tide team and fan base with any source of motivation before the game.
Maybe Alabama will take the shirts for their comedic value.
Eleven days to the BCS National Championship game:
Former Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen drew criticism from the public less than two weeks ago when he tweeted out a photo of this shirt:
And here's the latest pro-Notre Dame shirt:

Not an easy search. The bowl is now played at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, a Miami suburb. The old OB was in Miami. Still can’t figure why the hair split but the bowl logos and most news items call it South Florida.
Are you a ‘nuther Shamer?
In the early 1950s I and friends use to hunt quail where the Sun Life (Joe Robbie) Stadium sits.
Also water ski in the canal using a old Chevy to pull us. The canal was man made and had a gravel road running on the south side. The road extended to what is now Flamingo road coming from Broward Co.
Looking forward to ND beating Bama......they have too much team speed for the Tide.....and their defense is gonna shut down Bama’s one dimensional offense. Looking forward to an end of the SEC’s lucky national championship run......it’s created the most arrogant and obnoxious fan base in the nation.....most of whom never attended college
Good luck with that lol.
I think it's funny. Kids pretty harmlessly taunting other kids [y'know, like they've always done]. Are you really that bothered by it?
I live in south bend, and the only thing they teach at notre dame is how to be an elitist. They are the most overrated team, and will probably get their clocks cleaned.
I hope Bama wins by 50.
Obama made them cover all crosses/crucifix while he was on campus.
I'm mostly in Notre Dame's corner but coverings just because of Obama really chapped me.
ND will have to win me back before I wear the real ND t-shirts again.
If by "shamer" you mean someone who shames those colleges and universities who cheat and break the rules for their athletic programs, yes, that would be me.
Absolutely. And, THEY SHOULD still meet for prayer before they go out on field.
How is that offense going to score 48 points?
Fighting Irish...go I-R-I-S-H.
Win one for the fighting Leprechaun.
"Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you"
Tell the truth. But, I still gotta go with the Irish!
Considering its POTUS Obama, I judge, too.
Well I really don’t like Notre Dame that much so I am all for Alabama showing them some manners.
Considering Bama’s Center is injured and not practicing yet, I am a bit nervous about how Bama will perform. Hopefully, Barrett will be ready to play.
I honestly know very little about the personnel on either team. I know Mike Golic has a couple of kids at Notre Dame. I hope the game is entertaining and close for the sake of the national audience.
Hubby tells me not to worry about Center because the freshman backup has been practicing every day and is reportedly ready to play and has been all season. He did play in a lot of games this season when the starters were pulled out. He even made the freshman ALL-SEC team. But still. Barrett has started for four years at different positions. But we will see. I would like to see two teams play their best game of the season, but it doesn’t usually happen that way.
Catholic here. “Roll Tide!”
This Texas A&M alumni is hoping Alabama wins this game by at least 50 points.
'Cause we already beat Alerbamer ...
At least we can tell which ones are the heifers.
Amen Cook! Roll Tide!
Do tell! I never heard the poisoned trees story. Go Irish!
The insanity that is college football in the state of Alabama reached a new nadir this week, as an Alabama fan has admitted to using a powerful herbicide to kill cherished 130-year-old oak trees on the campus of arch rival Auburn. University officials announced that soil tests had revealed that a "lethal dose" of tebuthiuron had been spread around the live oaks at Toomer's Corner, a popular spot on the Auburn campus where fans often gather to celebrate momentous events (like the Tigers' recent BCS Championship victory last month, above.) The poisoning was discovered after a Crimson Tide fan called Paul Finebaum's popular sports talk radio show to brag about murdering the beloved oak trees, as revenge for the Tigers' Iron Bowl victory this season. He ended the call by saying, "Roll Damn Tide." Experts said that the poison was registered at a minimum of 0.78 parts per million, which is a very lethal dose and as high as 51 parts per million. There is no danger to humans, but officials are worried it could spread through the soil to other plants and trees on campus. Tebuthiuron use is monitored by the FDA. Even some Alabama fans think this goes too far, which is saying something, given the state's outrageous devotion to SEC football.

"Even some Alabama fans . . . " Really? Some?
“What you accuse with respect to liberalism and secularization is also true of almost every other university in the country. Try Princeton, Harvard, Stanford . . . . But we don’t condemn the whole cloth at such schools.”
Speak for yourself. Many of us are sick at heart about what cesspools these once-great institutions have become.
I really don't care about the success that Notre Shame may have achieved in whoring after the approval of the world at the expense of the souls of its students and of the reputation of the Church itself since Notre Shame is sold to the gullible as a Catholic institution when the better description is secular humanist. Notre Shame is an ongoing scandal and running lesion since the days of Hesburgh.
George Gipp is dead. Knute Rockne is dead. Neither Ronald Reagan nor Pat O'Brian attend or are employed by Notre Shame. They are both dead as well. Jimmy Cagney had nothing to do with. Notre Shame.
Notre Shame was built with the money of actual Catholics (i.e. unlike Notre Shame's modernist administrators), hard-working militant Catholics who sacrificed financially to fund what they had hoped would be a first rate AND thoroughly Catholic institution. Notre Shame and its apologists got carried away with themselves even before Hesburgh and exercised the absolute hubris of calling Notre Shame the Catholic Yale of the Midwest. It never was a Yale or a Harvard or a Princeton or even a Stanford and it never will be. It used to be somewhat Catholic but not in the last 50-60 years when it has been a bastion of anti-Catholicism staking a false claim to be still Catholic.
BTW, Boston College and Georgetown and many other "Catholic" schools are no better. Just more examples of grand theft academic by leftists and social revolutionaries in Roman collars playing make-believe Catholic. When the Vatican gets done with the revolutionary leftist nuns of LCWR, the "Catholic" universities and colleges in the USA should be next. Boston College has referred coeds to abortion mills when the infamous Bernard Cardinal Law was Archbishop of Boston and Law covered for BC and refused to allow the story to be published in his archdiocesan paper.
I cannot imagine what my "particular focus on gay people" may be, but the Church teaches that homosexual activity is "intrinsically disordered." Does Notre Shame teach that and act accordingly? Of course not! Notre Shame is politically correct to a fault (in fact, to many faults).
That Jenkins creature who is Notre Shame's president posing as a priest ordered the arrest of the saintly late Fr. Norman U. Weslin for the horrible crime against the Notre Shame ethos of carrying a plywood cross onto the campus in protest of Obozo being honored by Jenkins and Notre Shame.
Fr. Weslin was a friend and he was a client of mine years ago in the Northeast when he was repeatedly arrested for interfering with the grisly business of abortion mills. When Fr. Weslin was working for Mother Teresa in New York and being arrested in abortion mills and jailed pre-trial in about half the states in this nation and at the abortion known as Notre Shame, the Jenkins creature was lounging around in comfort selling out the Faith.
The Jenkins creature was repeatedly petitioned on behalf of Fr. Weslin and other arrestees from Obozo Day at Notre Shame to communicate to South Bend prosecutors that the charges be dropped. He refused to cooperate. These requests came from the handful of remaining actual Catholics in or near Notre Shame such as retired law professor Charles Rice.
As to Notre Shame football, they can take the leis, the tears, the cheers and the rest of the flapdoodle and stuff them where the sun shineth not.
As an American of Irish ancestry (grandmother from Cork), I would appreciate it if Notre Shame would stop claiming some relationship with the Irish and take a more descriptive name: The Fighting Heretics or The Fighting Nones. Our Lady must weep over this abomination of a university which abuses her name as well. Also, don't blame the pope for Notre Shame's abominations. Instead, pray that he intervene with maximum discipline against Notre Shame's powers and principalities that be.
May the Crimson Tide roll over Notre Shame!
Of course, none of the foregoing may affect your curious and sentimentalist fantasy as to Notre Shame. In that event, enjoy the Kool Aid dished out by Jenkins and his fellow monsters.
It was not about the football game it was about the crass remarks.
I've been to South Bend many times. Trust me, the intellectual differentiation between the schools is FAR less than you presume.
Really? If the schools weren't to meet in a football GAME, there would be no remarks. Most people could care less about the GAME, the schools involved or the remarks. Lighten up, Frances/Francis.
No thanks. It is not about football and you know it, so you lighten up.
Delusional. ND would have finished 4th in the SEC West, if they actually played in a real conference.
However, I can see why you might think they are lightning unleashed, given the teams they’ve played so far. After all, they do qualify for the Commander in Chief’s Trophy with all those stellar performances against the service academies.
Unfortunately, Alabama is not another service academy, as you will certainly find out by halftime. But please do watch the entire game. I know I will relish doing so.
Then by all means, explain to the rest of us just exactly what YOU BELIEVE it is about!
Oklahoma vs Boise State 2007 Fiesta Bowl.
My point is simply that they are not entirely cesspools. They are large institutions which do much good in the world. Why condemn them so wholeheartedly. It is misplaced. Moreover, the point is also that the disease is endemic to society as a whole, and the institutions are as much victims as perpetrators.
"Alumnus". "Alumni" is plural.
That'll teach me to attend the University of Minnesota, where college football is, unfortunately, not played.
Of course you “really don’t care.” THAT is precisely your problem. You merely hate. No one mentioned George Gipp or Knute Rockne. Nor Reagan nor Cagney. I didn’t. But try Ara Parseghian, who is not dead, and who has suffered more than you can ever image and yet donated millions of dollars to charity. Try Brian Kelley, who gives enormously to cancer research. Nor is my father dead, thank you very much, the most loving graduate the University of Notre Dame has ever turned out. With respect to gays, as I said, take it up with the Pope. ND does follow his directives on the matter. You are simply wrong. With respect to abortion, I quoted to you the university’s position. With respect to Obamacare, they were onto of first Catholic institutions to file a lawsuit. Again, you are simply blinded by your hatred, and your insistence on reiterating nonsense in long, pointless posts here is simply the evidence of it. I may have all kinds of issues with that thoroughly secular football factory you call a university in Alabama, but I don’t hate it. I know many good people who have gone there. Just stop with the hating. It’s Christmas. Good day. And, Go Irish! Beat Bama!
never much cared for 'bama, but gonna cheer'em on anyhow. after all, my favorite team is "who ever's playing against Notre Dame."
Funny, I don’t recall you being at my house that day.
That said, I don't think it will happen. I think Alabama crushes.
Notre Shame may occasionally talk a good game on pro-life but it harbors on its board of trustees Chicago Demonrat Machine pro-aborts. I am waiting for your explanation of the shameful arrest of Fr. Weslin and other pro-lifers protesting Obozo's presence on the NS campus, much less his status as commencement speaker and his receipt of an honorary law degree.
I also eagerly await your rationalizations as to the retention of the execrable anti-Catholic "theologian" Fr. Richard McBrien as sometime Theology faculty chairthing and for nearly fifty years a professor on the theology faculty at Notre Shame.
Google Land 'o Lakes Conference and learn of the perfidy and dishonesty of the Notre Shame of the Hesburgh regime. If these creatures pretend to Catholicism, they are phonies and frauds and worse.
Thomas Jefferson's quotable cousin, John Randolph of Roanoke, once said: "I am a gentleman. I love liberty and I hate equality!"
In a similar vein: I am a Catholic. I love the Faith and I despise its internal enemies posing as though they were Catholic.
If that is hate, make the most of it. I am not some spaghetti-spined Kumbaya holding hands around the campfire and singing songs of compromise with and unwarranted "love" for these enemies of Catholicism. There are many here on FR who resolutely oppose Catholicism as various forms of fundamentalist or evangelical Christians. Unlike Notre Shame's disgraceful leaders, those other Christians are honest men and women expressing their sincere faith which they view as rooted in the Word of God. Hesburgh, Molloy, Jenkins, McBrien, et al., were and are fifth columnists and termites in the woodwork of the Faith.
Charitable contributions can be a nice thing or otherwise but they do not define Catholicism. John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, J. P. Morgan and many others have given colossal amounts to charity. Sometimes, as with Carnegie's contributions to free public libraries, they have achieved good. Often with such as the Ford Foundation, they have achieved much evil and often purposely so.
AND, I live in rural Northern Illinois (and previously in Connecticut near Yale). I carry no brief ordinarily for University of Alabama. It happens to be Notre Shame's next opponent and therefore worthy of encouragement. I don't believe that Bear Bryant, George Wallace or Frank Johnson were ever Catholic but they were better Catholics than the Judas trash that misruled and misrules Notre Shame under Hesburgh, Molloy and Jenkins. That would not be much of a challenge for anyone.
Go Bama! Rout the Faux Leprechauns! Touchdown, Jesus!!!
