Jimmy Clausen is best known these days as the Carolina Panthers' third-string quarterback -- in other words, we haven't heard much about him lately.
Until recently, when the former Notre Dame quarterback tweeted a photo of a T-shirt touting the upcoming BCS championship game between the Fighting Irish and Alabama as "Catholics vs. Cousins."
It's a play on the classic Notre Dame vs. Miami matchup in 1988, dubbed "Catholics vs. Convicts." In this case, the "cousins" would be the Crimson Tide because apparently everyone in Alabama is related. Or something like that.
Naturally Clausen received plenty of backlash for the photo, which he has since removed from his Twitter feed -- but not without telling us all to lighten up Monday morning: "Some people have to much time on your hands! It's a shirt people lol."
