0 It's fun to hate Notre Dame again!

By Kenny Howell

For several years now, Notre Dame has skirted by not receiving my hate because, well, they didn't really matter. All those little perks they get weren't really necessary because they weren't good enough to take advantage of them.

But they are good now. Undefeated good. They haven't played the toughest schedule, but it definitely is a solid one. I actually respected them for most of the season because I think Brian Kelly is a great coach, and they were getting good ones. It was good to have a great program in college football's history back near the top.

But that changed this past week when I started hearing rumblings if how Notre Dame was getting slighted in the polls. They are, get this, ranked No. 3 in the BCS.

Thanks adorable kitten.

That's right Notre Dame is mad because they are ranked No. 3 in the nation. My thoughts are

BOO FREAKING HOO!


The irony that the team that gets more help from the BCS complaining about their place in the rankings is ridiculous. You are the only team that gets a guaranteed spot in the BCS if you finish in the Top 8. No other major conference team gets that deal. Add to that, Notre Dame has been historically overrated because of their history. Old fogies think that they are still the same team they were in the 1980s and before, so they often seem like a sexier pick than your South Carolinas and Clemsons of the world.

Notre Dame is one bad game by themselves of being out of the conversation, or one bad game by someone else of being in the National Championship. Let's stop the whining, and let it work itself out.
