What makes a Rival? Airforce and Navy are the embodiement of rival no one desputes, but what makes that a rival where CU CSU is not. Heck Fans got teargassed when CSU won for first time in heck a long time. (I was there) and players get into it more then usual game. CU looks towards Nebraska every year and that game sells out in first half hour of ticket sells.
So I ask again what makes a Rival? And why wont CU ecknoledge CSU or Nebraska Ecknowledge CU and if OU is a Rival why is that always a lackluster game it seems
I think that alot of it has to do with a with weather a program is winning or loosing. In the 90's Neb was definately a rival. But normally its an instate team. I'm pissed because NDSU is not playing UND this year because we are D1 now. I understand why the football team isn't playing...but why all the sports. Sassy can you answer me that...so inherently SDSU(south dakota state) is our 'new' rival.
