Notre Dame Fans Continue To Trash Alabama With Offensive National Championship T-Shirts

Andrew Tredinnick

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.

I live near Tuscaloosa, and I am a long time Bama fan. These T-shirts don't rise to the level of being offensive. ND fans are nervous, and this is a way of expressing their fear. Frankly, the majority of students at Alabama weren't alive when ND was relevant. There is far more banter between rival SEC teams than there ever will be with ND.

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

"You should have been disabused of that notion the first time they honored obama with an honorary degree"

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.

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.

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. They are fine institutions nevertheless. With respect to your particular focus on gay people, well, the school does follow the teaching of the Church to the letter in its pronouncements, so take it up with the Pope. With respect to abortion the univerity has issued an institutional statement affirming its commitment to the defense of human life at all its stages and adopted new principles governing the university's charitable activity. "Consistent with the teaching of the Catholic Church on such issues as abortion, research involving human embryos, euthanasia, the death penalty and other related life issues, the University of Notre Dame recognizes and upholds the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death," said the statement, which was released April 8. When last on campus at ND, for the Michigan game, after seeing the students embrace Te'o with Hawaiian leis and cheers (amid tears) and prayers, upon visiting the grotto, lighting candles, and stumbling into the basilica when the team happened to be at a private mass, on visiting dorms where resident priests hold mass daily in elaborately beautiful chapels, in every dorm, I was reminded very quickly that I was returning to a very special and holy place, one with a glorious mission and known for the passion and quality of her people. Two days ago, my father, ND C'48, lost his class ring; he thought it had been stolen. And when I found it and brought it to him, tears ran down his 89 year-old cheeks. And let's not forget those SAT scores, graduation rates, Notre Dame's lack of Bama's (and LSU's) oversigning sins and JUCO/scholarship sins. Notre Dame is a school, first and foremost. And yes, Notre Dame is still "the finest collegiate institution in the country" in many respects, a great many. The very name of the school opens doors, the faith it instills moves mountains, the charitble work it sponsors and pays for all over the world, in the millions of dollars each year, from hospitals to scholarships, including charitiable works by mere students, from those raising funds and building schools in Kenya to the very shirts so famously (now) worn at home games, the shirt sales helping Notre Dame students who suffer from extraordinary medical conditions that requires payment beyond their means. Your narrow-minded view of this one small corner of Catholicism, which is a huge institution with many rooms, and many people with many disagreements (including scores of ND alums upset with Jenkins), and your jokes about farm animals, pale in comparison to the sight of the team gathering at mass, or joining with students at the end of a game, win or lose, to sing the most beautiful Alma Mater in the world. Notre Dame, our Mother Tender, strong and true, Proudly in the heavens Gleams thy gold and blue, Glory’s mantle cloaks thee Golden is thy fame, And our hearts forever Praise thee Notre Dame, And our hearts forever Love thee Notre Dame! . . . Yes, they do. Go Irish!

I found an article about it. Good Lord! . . .

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?

Mr. Chips:

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.

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.

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.

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!

Oh, I quite agree on both points. It can happen. That's why they play the games. I also agree with comparing ND to BSU. The main difference being that BSU lacked the nationwide hype machine.

That said, I don't think it will happen. I think Alabama crushes.

Have another tank of Jenkins' Kool-Aid! The Notre Dame you hallucinate is long dead. It is only Notre Shame now.

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.
