  • Drew Magary Memorial Asymmetrical Rivalry Thread

    First, read the Comments on this. (Read the whole thing, really, it's good.)

    What are the college hockey equivalents? Using the notation:

    Lesser Rival - Arch Rival (Arch Rival’s Arch Rival)

    -----------------------------

    Cornell - Harvard (Yale)

    Colgate - Cornell (Harvard)

    Quinnipiac - Yale (Harvard)

    RPI - Clarkson (SLU) ? Not sure about this one. Who is RPI's arch rival?


    Others?

    If you went to RPI before 2006 and care about hockey, Clarkson. If you went to RPI after 2006 or don't care about hockey, Union. We have no rivalry with SLU whatsoever.

      Wisconsin - Minnesota (NoDak) ?

      For football, it's obviously:

      Michigan St - Michigan (Ohio St), but for every other sport it definitely seems to go OSU - UM (MSU).

        You're right, I reversed them. D'oh!

          It varies. There have been times when that's been a legit three-way rivalry. Might have been a time here or there where you could swap Wisconsin and NoDak but maybe not too often.

          In football, I think you could also say Iowa - WI/MN (MN/WI)

              That reminds me of the diehard Hawkeye fan I met in Indy last December for the title game who actually went to Minnesota. I had to do a double take. I know some who went to MSU and stayed Michigan fans, but it's one of those things where it's still strange to encounter no matter how many times it happens.

                This is outdated now, for awhile in women's college basketball it was

                Notre Dame - UConn (Tennessee)

                Pat Summitt's medical condition closed off the latter.

                In pro football, is it
                Vikings - Packers (Bears) ?

                    That's actually the example cited in the blog post Kepler linked at the beginning.

                        No, according to the original post, that alignment would make NMU our "lesser rival" and Lake State our arch-rival. Which is not correct.

                            Reminder, the notation is:

                            Lesser Rival - Arch Rival (Arch Rival’s Arch Rival)

                            e.g.

                            Cornell - Harvard (Yale) reads "Cornell hates Harvard but Harvard hates Yale"
