Former Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen Tweets Picture Of "Catholics vs. Cousins" Shirt, People Aren't Happy

We all need a Twitter break or something.

Jimmy Clausen obviously has a rooting interest in this year's BCS National Championship Game. The former Notre Dame quarterback made that well-known this afternoon, tweeting out a picture of a T-Shirt he appears to have obtained.

However, he's not getting the response he'd hoped for. The backlash was swift, and Clausen has now deleted the tweet. Here's a screenshot of it beforehand.

This clown (Jimmy Clausen) actually makes fun of #Alabama?…

Jimmy Clausen should really know better

Jimmy Clausen is just dumb. Nice job giving Alabama more motivation to stomp the Irish. #Smoothmove

Clausen then defended himself, downplaying the situation by saying "it's a shirt people lol". Are "people" being too sensitive, or do they have a right to be upset?
