One Great Season
Everyone loves to hate Notre Dame. An Irish quarterback who falls to No. 48 in the NFL draft gives many reason to feel better about themselves, they think.
The anti-Jimmy Clausen sentiment rivals the hate for Tim Tebow and anyone who's ever played basketball at Duke. But not everyone on Twitter was celebrating Clausen's surprising slide. Here's a sampling:
+ @darrenrovell1: "Clausen's guarantee will be about $2.6M. If he went 8th (as Kiper had) would have made about $22.6M."
+ @TheBigLead: "I know people lamented Clausen falling, but this is a great spot. Good RBs, good WRs ... if he starts, he'll win more than Bradford."

+ @bomani_jones: "bad news, jimmy clausen--after steve smith, i'm not sure any of the panthers receivers are better than floyd or tate."
+ @gamecocksblog: "ESPN just COMPLETELY glossed over Taylor Mays pick to gush over Clausen and send it to commercial?? Weak."
+ @BamaBeat: "Never understood the Jimmy Clausen hype. Didn't understand it in Knoxville when fans were going nuts for him. Don't understand it now."
+ @jemelehill: "As for Jimmy Clausen. Sure he's privately upset, but he's in a better situation than Tebow. Sometimes a step back is 3 steps 4ward."
+ @JoeGoodyMiaHrld: "Charlie Weis' last order of business at Notre Dame: Giving juniors Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate some bad advice. Nice one, Charlie!"
+ @cpanthers: "On being passed over for 47 picks: 'It'll be in the back of my mind every time I step on the field, work out or step into the building.'"
+ @InTheBleachers: "On the bright side, Clausen will have a better career than Bradford as I've said all along. Book that folks."
+ @si_peterking: "That's the perfect team for Clausen, with a good offensive line, no pressure on him at first, and no strong incumbent."
+ @gamecocksblog: "So I'm guessing Erin Andrews didn't make it back out to the Clausen compound, considering we didn't see anything from there? Busy dancing?"
