Reflections of an SEC Fan


Went to Miami for MNC game against ND. For my fellow SEC breathen, let me say that ND fans are truly elite.

I would say the distribution of fans was 70-30 at best. ND showed up in force. Many we're very cordial and polite. Of course, they had their younger brother who they could not control.

ND is College football. As much as I love my Tide, the Irish have such awesome tradition and passion for their team. I was very impressed by the class shown by most ND fans.

If you have never played ND, I hope your school will schedule them.

I have been two MNC is the last few years. As a College football fan, I have experienced Nirvana.

Hoping others may someday have the same experience.

I was there as well and there was a TON of ND fans that didn't even go to the game. Bama was definitely outnumbered and a good number of them were nice and polite but the younger crowd were a-holes.

Outside yes, or maybe even more so in ND's favor.

Inside the stadium, it was 60-40 at the most. Probably more like 55-45

frick notre dame and their shitty arse fans. They were on their best behavior in miami cuz in their hearts they knew they were about to get raped.

Been a michigan fan for years, and south bend produces and influences the most pos, entitled fans of any fanbase in the entire nation. frick them.

Yep. They talked a lot of shite.

The older ND folks were great.

No fan base is better than A&M's.

We have played them a lot in our history.

I have been to two games in South Bend, what a great place to watch football. Literally got chills the first time I walked in.

A&M fans IRL = great.

Except for Tbird.

I have much hate in my heart for notre dame growing up a Michigan fan--I apologize for coming on too strong, OP. A lifetime of bitterness toward that school.

But seriously, frick notre dame.

I've met a few fanbases that were overall pretty nasty. Douchebags were the norm.

I was shocked...it seemed odd to see how much Bama was outnumbered by that much.

Texas tech fans achieve a level of douchey that UF fans can only dream of, tbh
