A USC team without Barkley and with Lane Kiffin coaching isn't winning.

No one roots randomly decides to root for a crappy non-Chicago team.

And can we get a title change? The Haren thing happened like 2 weeks ago, tired of seeing it.

Agreed. And save any ND stuff until after the SC game. I don't need to think about a jynx.

I used to love Notre Dame as a kid when they had Lou Holtz as coach and Ron Powlus at QB

I stopped following ND after how they treated Lou Holtz at end of his time there (And I didn't like some of the treatment of several coaches after)

I as a kid enjoyed Illini and ND football ,, I stopped following ND football

Part of me wants to start following ND again but other part of me says I have followed Ilini and should stick with them

I mean I have seen enough terrible Illini teams in my life that waiting 5-10 years for team to be good again shouldn't be difficult

When's the next Halley's comet? It's probably before we'll see a winning Illini football team. I'm not sure how Zook pulled Mendenhall and Juice out of him bum, but that team was a fluke.

Mendenhall was a Turner recruit

I still remember my dad telling me when I was looking at colleges that I didn't need to worry about the costs and that they'd find a way to make sure they could afford wherever I go and that I wouldn't graduate with any debt..... but he would not pay for me to go to Notre Dame or Michigan under any circumstance.

Luckily, I had long-since discounted those two schools regardless, so it was a non-issue. Going to be a weird, weird Saturday when our family's rooting for USC of all schools....

Not a fluke at all

Zook is well regarded recruiter ,, Problem is he sucks as a coach

Don't follow college football, but if I had to pick, ND and NIU would be my "teams". I'm mostly Irish and I grew up on the southside.

No one tries to pretend they are a Chicago team the way the fans and media pretend ND is.

It's hard to remove myself from the scenario considering I grew up on the southside, but I'd definitely consider ND a local team. I know more then a handful of people who drive out for a game at least once a year.

If you have to 'drive out' to another state, then I don't consider that local. Just my opinion.

Agreed. It's like calling the Brewers a local team, but you just don't do that because we already have 2 Chicago based baseball teams. Only reason ND gets consideration as somewhat local, is because college football in the state of Illinois is pathetic.

The Giants played in NYC for 50+ years and Giants stadium is 30 minutes from NYC.

But ND isn't in Hammond, it's in another time zone. Jersey is right across a river. Not the same thing.

I can't stand Notre Dame, but Chicago is sort of a hometown for them. There's more ND fans in Chicago than any city in Indiana...that's for sure.

I've hated them since I was a kid though. Would love for them to win out, then lose by 40 to Alabama in the title game

Or lose to USC again.

Maybe on a push?

Am I asking too much?

Well no city/metro area in Indiana is near the size, so it's not a great comparison
