Darius Rucker loses bet, sings Notre Dame fight song

|

Since ending his days as lead singer of the classic rock band Hootie and the Blowfish to pursue a solo career in country music, Darius Rucker has made it abundantly clear that he is an avid South Carolina Gamecocks fan. It make sense considering that he was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina.

ESPN radio personality and co-host of Mike & Mike in the Morning, Mike Golic playdd football at and graduated from Notre Dame. When the two women’s teams met up in the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament this season, the two men decided place a friendly wager on the game.

Darius Rucker lost and had to pay up in easily one of the best ways ever.

College Spun shared a video of Rucker at a concert Saturday night singing the Fighting Irish’s fight song. What made it even better was the fact that Rucker was wearing a Notre Dame jersey and the song was being played by his back-up band.

That is surely an interesting rendition of the Victory March. This isn’t the first time that a celebrity got his just desserts when betting against the Fighting Irish.

Mark May, ESPN college football analyst and former Michigan Wolverine, made a bet with former Notre Dame coach and fellow analyst Lou Holtz on who would win the game between the two a few years ago. The Irish won and May had to wear the leprechaun outfit on an episode of College Football Countdown. It was pretty hilarious, but hearing Hootie sing the fight song was even better.

I know one thing, I won’t be betting against the Irish anytime soon.
