Wait, Notre Dame isn't in the B1G? You are correct, but since we are playing them this week, and I want to know if everyone dislikes them as much as I do, I figured I would include them in the polls. I would guess they will eventually join either the B1G or the ACC sometime in the next 10 years or so anyway. Wouldn't you love to see IU vs ND? I have been waiting for that epic matchup for years.
Anyway, I remember when I was in high school (near Evansville, IN), I took a college day with my future Purdue roomate to visit his brother at Purdue. It was Notre Dame weekend, and we had tickets to the big game. I couldn't believe all of the F the Irish signs all over campus. I thought that was a little harsh at the time. I remember that we lost the game, but seeing Alstott totally crush people was awesome. He would sit in the backfield on passing plays, an unfortunate linebacker would run around the corner, and he would lay them out. They even had commercials with him pulling a semi truck up the hill next to Ross-Ade. It was awesome.
So, since it is Notre Dame week, let's see what the Boilermaker faithful think of our friendly neighbors to the Northeast.
