Well here you go

So all of the Navy apologists are ready to burn the building down because someone decided they were absolutely unimportant enough to even mention on a list of Notre Dame Fighting Irish rivalries.

Bummer.

Being the benevolent Emperor, Supreme Warlord, and Defender of the Faith that I am... let’s have a little fake democracy inside the empire.

Below you will find 8 polls with 7 of the most worthy “rivals” to Notre Dame — and Navy is on there too. Each poll is self-explanatory and will last until Monday. While in no way will the results become an official declaration of OFD (because there is none because this shit is personal and for each person’s soul) it should provide a better look at how the OFD community as a whole sees all of this.

How you decide how to rank them (historical, current, hate, etc.) is between you and your god.

Yes I know how ridiculous this all is — but here we are.
