The one thing that I've never been able to come to grips with is the level of hatred many (if not most) LSU fans have for Notre Dame. I've heard the stories about the 1969 Cotton Bowl, but even I'm not old enought to remember that, and I've been called "old" by more people than I care to name. On the other hand, the love/hate associated with teams is one of the factors that makes me a NCAA football fan. As far as pulling for one team or the other, I pull for LSU and Notre Dame, unless they play each other or one's outcome benefits the other's, in which case I pull for the Irish. I've never rooted for another team in any other game. I love to watch college football, and just enjoy any game not involving LSU or Notre Dame.
