    Looks like the 12-Pac is going to happen, and we deserve a better rival than Utah. I mean, how can you hate a team's fanbase that has milk and cookie pregame tailgates?

    I'm leaning towards Oregon. I hate their uniform(s), plus I hear that it's against the law to pump your own gas there.

    I can be swayed, however, if anyone out there has other rival suggestions.

    Mac would pick Southern Cal. You want to be the best, you got to beat the best. However, with Carroll gone, I think they may be in for a slide over the next few years. Carroll really had something special going on there that will be difficult to continue. Still, their fans are annoying, arrogant, self righteous windbags, so that's who I'm going to concentrate my hatred upon.

    I hate Oregon and have ever since the Fiesta Bowl debacle. And yes you CANNOT pump your own gas there so everything is full serve. I would say their uniforms suck but they change so often I wouldn't know which ugly uni to refer to.

    I pumped my own gas in Oregon. I'm a rebel.

    Tough one, Id like to say USC or Oregon. I gotta say UCLA though, at least as long as Slick is there.

    I nominate ASU because their hand sign is the shocker.
    And because the Phoenix area overtook Denver Metro as the biggest city in the Mountain timezone.
    And because ASU has such low academic standards and the coeds have a reputation for being slutty.
    And they were the last Pac-10 program to beat us with that filthy cheating Dennis Erickson.

    I think it's hysterical that ASU's hand sign is the Shocker. I bust a gut (careful there!) everytime I see that.

    CAL.

    Their mascot sucks, and a Boulder/Berkly rivalry would be fun. Besides i can get my wife to go to this game and taunt bear fans.

    I'm not sure that's a reason to dislike any school. Indeed, it is quite the opposite. :smile2:

    Huh? Clark Evans puts a straw into the ground, sucks up enough oil for his car from the ground, refines it (in his mouth, nonetheless) and puts it in his tank himself. That's real full-serve.

    Of course the only reason why he even has a car is so that he can cruise around with us mere mortals if need be.

    Nothing will ever top the following sign held up at Folsom during a Bugeater game:

    "If you can read this, you must not be a Nebraska fan"

    The utes are going to be our rival, so we need to wok on ammunition. So far all I've got is "My wife can kick your wives' asses". Gonna take some time.

    UCLA for sure. Remember when Washington came to town after they hired Rick? Quite a chant I was a part of in the student section at that time. The cool thing is that we can create new rivalries based on how good the games are against specific schools. Berkeley vs. Boulder has so many possibilities, Oregon too. We have had home and homes with ASU and USC in the past decade as well. Besides Nebraska, I do not think we ever had a true rivalry in the Big 12. And Nebraska would probably not consider us a rival based on their overall record versus us.

    Do you really get to pick your rival? I say we hate everyone and let true hatred develope on it's own.

    Don't sleep on Utah though. I hate Utah.

    How did you get away with that?

    Anyway, Oregon is already a rival for me. I have just as many Oregon alums and fans in my family as buff fans.

    Oh and rivalries will develop over time. We aren't gonna be huge rivals or threats with how we play right now though.

    There isn't a fanbase in the country that could get as many fans into Folsom as the fuskers. Plus half their fan base lives here anyway. I'm just not sure if any of the PAC schools can garner up the hatred we all have for the corn. Just don't think it'll ever be possible. Utah, Oregon, or CAL would be my early favs on this though.

    not going to the PAC-loser so no need to pick another rival. I'll stick with CSU and FNU. When times get tough, not need to tuck tail and run to the weak ass PAC-crap.

    LOL! The Buff fans picking a new rival. The thing is, are they going to make the Buffs thier new rival?

    I say it's gong to be the Stanford Cardinal. The two most intelligent fan bases around.

    Tell us how you really feel, maybe with some witty well thought out names for the other conferences.

    the red works, we could adjust to cardinal but we'd need to get all new material, no way we could look down on Standford's academics like we do the huskers, animal husbandry jokes wouldn't work either.

    It would have to be UCLA because of Rick - from a football standpoint its a little demeaning to go from Nebraska to Utah......

    Not this decade. Utah's been a hell of a lot better than Nebraska.

    I was able to look at 8 seasons out of the last 10 before the Uah website got jiggy. It looks to me like they both had the same number of winning seasons. Utah had 4 bowl wins, 2 bowl losses and 2 seasonswith no bowl game. Huskers had 5 bowl wins 2 bowl losses and one season with no bowl.

    I love the Utes esp when they do well and get beat by Boise. But there is now way they are the football legacy that Nebraska is. That is without mention of Nebraska baseball, swimming and diving, gymnastics, softball. basketball. There is no way Utah athletics are on a par with Nebraska.

    Oh damn. It's you again kicking through the ashes of a rivalry gone cold. Don't go all Fatal Attraction on us.
