I only lost one friend during the game. He is a Virginia Tech fan who has taken me to games at VT with him but he texted me "Roll Tide." The exchange between us was ugly and I haven't spoken to him since because I don't care that it got that way. Had I been drinking it likely would have been worse though, so I am happy with my own decision to not embibe.
I'm not above losing friends over something like that game or any future ND games for that matter. One thing I have learned over the past 6 weeks is that there is more animosity towards ND than I remember growing up. Due to that newly found information, I may lose friends in the future over ND football and it doesn't bother me in the least.
