Now that the cat is out of the bag as far as Nick Saban retiring the names of people who could take over has been floating all over the internet. Among those who are being discussed as top candidates is none other than Notre Dame Fighting Irish head coach Marcus Freeman.

However, it doesn't appear that Freeman is a name that has Crimson Tide fans all that excited. In fact, if social media reactions are any indication, most of 'Bama fans on X are united in the idea that he should not be the guy.

There are obviously some Notre Dame Fighting Irish fans who are also not excited about the possibility of losing a coach that seems to be putting together a juggernaut of a roster this offseason.

It's safe to say that Notre Dame Fighting Irish fans would be perfectly fine with a social media uprising against Marcus Freeman in Alabama. He needs to stay in South Bend. It's possible he'll be in a better situation than the Crimson Tide will be this fall.
