Ian ended up rooting for Notre Dame, even though he claimed he didn't know which team to pull for and also claimed he wanted to root for the winning team. Despite his "Boo Buckeyes" throughout the game, I forgive him. I think what really caused the move towards the Irish for him was that I was very vocally cheering on the Buckeyes. I never said anything disparaging about ND, but I did loudly cheer on the Buckeyes when they made a great offensive or defensive play, and moaned pretty loudly too when the Bucks screwed up.
I picked up the Daily Herald today and read all four articles they wrote about the game. I don't usually read the sports section, and especially don't read multiple articles about a game I watched. But as I read the first article, I just wanted to read more and more of what the writer's had to say, especially since they have a true slant towards Notre Dame. One of my favorite quotes was written by Adam Rittenberg and was this:
With a chance to authenticate its return to college football's elite club, No. 5 Notre Dame lost to a team that owns a lifetime membership.
I think that quote pretty much sums it up. It was great game to watch if you were a Buckeye fan.
