04:31 PM ET 12.17 | Former Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen, now Cam Newton's backup with the Carolina Panthers, has taken his BCS National Championship allegiances a step further. The one-time heavily hyped Irish recruit tweeted a photograph of a shirt bearing the words, "Catholics vs. Cousins," which led to a long day of retorts from SEC country.

I think Quinns team mates at the Chiefs hate him,, watching the game Sunday against the Raiders,, Ha ha ha,, his receivers deliberately dropping passes and whats up with his center not snapping the ball when Quinn is yelling at him to do so before delay of game is called..

Now I admit Brady Quinn isn't the greatest QB but that loss was not his fault.

Funny...I had the same thought. Media twits will pump up anything.

Heh, heh, heh, I've already seen that shirt. Boys will be boys. We have some of them also.

Hey, here's a good Irish joke. What's the difference between an Irish wedding and an Irish funeral? There one less drunk at the funeral! Ha!

Ok, about as funny as the shirt...

Coach Saban was just on the Dan Lebatard show. Jason Taylor basically called Heath Evans a liar.

Agreed, don't give Bama anymore fuel they already have, but Jimmy's input means nothing, he is a second string QB for a 5-9 Carolina team.
I wonder if he regrets leaving early for the Pros.
Coach Kelly probably would have benched him and put in Tommy anyway, Ha ha ha ha..

December 17, 2012  07:18 PM ET

Do people really care about what Clausen says? I mean even if he is absolutely right, nobody should care hahahaha.

BAMA 27 vs DAME 20

Yea Jimmy didn't seem to have much upside....not sure what the allure ever was to be honest. But the rivals scouts cant be right all the time huh. I think he was the #1 pro style QB and overall number one in many recruiting outlets.

If someone needs this for extra "fuel" for an NCG, then they have no business playing the damn game.

Jimmy was great at ND,, I'm just pointing out the strange faith and dedication coach Kelly had for Tommy Rees. Like he was his son or nephew or something.
