Did You See This? Michigan banner on Notre Dame Stadium

Michigan Banner


How about that? We’re still days away from the Michigan-Notre Dame game, and Wolverine fans already have hit up Notre Dame Stadium. Thanks to @stephenjnesbitt, we have visual proof of it. Evidently, Michigan fans placed a blue “Beat the Irish” banner on the stadium, facing Touchdown Jesus.

As expected, the banner didn’t last long. A Notre Dame official said it was removed in the early-morning hours Wednesday.

I’m sure Notre Dame loved the act. But hey, it’s a heated rivalry and there are far worse things an opposing team can do. And winners of three consecutive in the series, you know Michigan fans are confident and ready to instigate.

Are you ready for Saturday night’s game in South Bend? Read all of the preview coverage on our Michigan vs. Notre Dame page. Also, on game day, we’ll provide live quarterly updates on that same page.

Vandalism at it’s finest, hopefully BTN isn’t condoning these actions….

Doug……seriously you sound like a whiny baby. Vandalism is destruction of property. They put up a sign that was easily taken down. Relax.

Tre, you don’t know me, I work in law enforcement, it’s vandalism, so you relax.

Doug: Vandelism, as defined by Webster
The intentional destruction of property is popularly referred to as vandalism. It includes behavior such as breaking windows, slashing tires, spray painting a wall with graffiti, and destroying a computer system through the use of a computer virus. Vandalism is a malicious act and may reflect personal ill will, although the perpetrators need not know their victim to commit vandalism. The recklessness of the act imputes both intent and malice.

if that is vandalism,it is great vandalism!! doesn’t seem to be anything damaged except maybe some hurt feelings. doug,i think tre was relaxed when he put up his post. you being in law enforcement doesn’t mean he should have to relax any more than he already was.

calling somebody he doesn’t know a whiny baby, sounds like he wasn’t relaxed. anyways, it’s tresspassing at the least, and if the people that work at the stadium want to press vandalism charges, they could, granted there is worse cases. all I know is the uptight people in ann arbor would be up in arms if ND people did this to Michigan stadium….
