Fighting Irish fans likely aren't fans of pro-SEC ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum in the first place. After hearing what he has to say about Notre Dame's 2015 title chances, that likely won't change.

He added that he isn't sure when the school will be able to compete for a national title, either.
