I’m sure the pope would’ve intervened at some point. Too much money in college football to be had. 😊 

My thought is that if they were motivated enough to have Michigan stop by to teach them the game, then eventually they would have had somebody teach them had the Wolverines refused. 

I said it once and I'll say it again. Most Irish fans that I know have completely forgotten about that game. Notre Dame's football program is focused on winning the national championship. If someone asked Freeman or anyone on his staff what the score of that game was, 50% of them wouldn't even know. 

I agree that Michigan fans think more about that game than Notre Dame fans do. But at the end of the day, both programs can hold their heads high knowing that they are the two winningest programs in college football history.

In the big scheme of things, that score is meaningless to both programs at this point as they have bigger goals in mind.

However, in this particular event (a discussion where both fan bases are riling one another up) the scoreboard is the checkmate.  It’s good natured ribbing.

Lol. I'll give you that.

And Notre Dame can’t do a thing about it for a decade.

Notre Dame won two of the last three..........Michigan will have to live with that for a decade.

Even your cute little stadium is a mini replica of The Big House.

Lol. At least at Notre Dame you can go get concessions without having to wait in line to get back in. 

Five 10-win seasons in a row. Michigan has two during that time period. Not bad, not bad. They're trying.

Cool, now we are comparing concessions.

Michigan also doesn’t have a 4-8 season sprinkled in there and has rivals that are actually on top of their game right now.

USC, Stanford, Navy, FSU and Boston College are cute little rivalries.  
 

Try playing OSU, MSU, and PSU annually.

Well, yeah. Concessions is part of the whole fan experience. Maybe that's why Parkview Field was rated higher than Lucas Oil in a recent study of the top sporting venues in the United States? They typically look at the whole package.

The last time I was in Michigan Stadium, which I'll admit was in the mid-1990's,  it was a crumbling dump.  And they crammed you in there like sardines to the point that if you didn't sit down when everybody sat down you had lost your seat on the cold, hard, bleachers.

Was that before they installed the retractable roof?

This topic went from two fanbases giving one another a hard time about program success on the field, to the origins of the rivalry to concession stand and toilet jokes in a hurry.

I'll get back on topic...

Rudy was offsides...change my mind.

Caesars has released some early season betting lines…

OSU -13.5 vs ND

OSU will cover, but if this was anybody other than an OSU player coaching ND this would be a 35-7 game…..at half. And it still might be. Might also be the final score too.

I’d love your analysis on this matchup.

Where does ND have obvious advantages in your opinion?

None. OL may be equal.

Ohio State has a top 2 QB, a top 3 RB, and the best receiver in college football. Blood bath coming.

ND OL vs OSU DL?  
 

I know I’ll get accused of recency bias but I think OSU is soft in the front 7.  Hell, they just had their spring game and there was zero tackling allowed when the first string offense was in.

Probably a wash. Worst Ohio State defense I’ve seen in years, not sure it can get any worse this year. I think Knowles is the real deal and the last opponent he faced…Notre Dame. Domers don’t have the horses to keep up.
