This is a tough one for the neutral crowd who might either want the SEC dragon to be slain, or not see Notre Dame back at the top.
Alabama-Notre Dame a Tough Call for Neutral Fans
ND needs to win for the sake of humanity :-).
I've heard a lot more, "ugh, I've got to root for ND now" then the other way around.
The whole concept of conference pride seems ridiculous anyway, why on earth should it make me happy that a conference rival won the title? It doesn't change the fact that my team failed. Furthermore, Alabama, LSU, Florida, and Auburn's success doesn't make me respect ole miss, miss state, vandy, etc anymore just because they are all in the SEC.
I found the "hopefully, we'll be hated back to the level that we're accustomed to," line amusing.
