    I'm tired of forced rivalries. It takes years and certain events to actual make a rivalry. You can't just say two teams are rivals because it makes sense geographically.

    I can't edit my post. The author does a good job of explaining why Utah should be our rival again. I couldn't read it from my work computer before I commented. Then I figured I should read the article to avoid sounding like a jackass.

    I'll summarize. Writer still hates NU, but back in the 20's and 30's CU played the Yoots. Even when they went to separate conferences decades ago, they still played each other. Now Cu and the Yoots are in the same conference again and we should go retro and hate the Yoots....

    Utah should grow into a rivalry.

    Some things can be done to help it along (like a wager between governors, a trophy and other PR type stuff), but it will either happen or not based on what happens between the lines.

    Ritter could put up some Rocky Mountain Oysters and the UT gov. could put up one of his wives....






























    Inflammatory BBS posts can't hurt the development of a rivalry.:devil:

    Oh we'll be hating them when they roll off 4 or 5 wins to start the series.
