It hasn’t been a good year for the Gipper.

Not only did his Fighting Irish suffer a loss in the BCS national championship game to Alabama and the embarrassing aftermath of Manti Te’o’s non-existent girlfriend, but now a troubled West Michigan bar bearing the famous Notre Dame coach’s name is going under.

Gipper’s Sports Bar & Grill, located at 3850 Alpine Ave. NW, Comstock Park, is liquidating its assets after losing its liquor license in January 2012, reportedly following a series of violent incidents in and near the establishment.
