Slow News Day: Who Knew Notre Dame Hated Us So Much?!

It's a slow news day so I was searching the Internets for some fun Syracuse photos I thought everyone would be interested in. And then I found this:

It's a set of photos taken by Notre Dame students in the Fall Semester of 2005. The first photo you'll see is something they labeled "Syracuse Inferno." And from there the students go on to torture an adorable Otto effigy!

What the heck is going on here? How could these crimes of sport go unpunished? And who knew Notre Dame students had such hate for Syracuse? (or poor, innocent Otto!) I'll be honest, I just assumed Notre Dame loathed being in the Big East for any sport and would rather just pretend the conference and its teams didn't even exist. What I did not expect ever happening were bonfires and Otto torture!

The gauntlet has been thrown. Maybe it was a full half decade ago, but there must be vengeance! Anyone have any sewing skills and feel like making a shiny, crude looking Irishman? Let's exact our revenge! Tear him apart! Stomp his fist off!

Or perhaps we could just edit the Wikipedia entry for that game and pretend we won...
