#9 Play Like a Champion Sign – Notre Dame loves living in the past and this stupid sign is just one example of their annoying tradition. I don’t care that it’s tradition to tap the sign on the way in and out of the locker room. The facts don’t lie and Notre Dame has been mediocre for the last 20 years. In the last 16 bowl games Notre Dame has gone 5-11 with 0 wins in the BCS bowl era. That includes a streak of 9 straight bowl losses, so Notre Dame fans are clearly living in the past.
