    Fake Rivals

    anyone getting sick of fake rivals with the new conferance. Nebraska and Iowa who have played a couple times in life are now rivals. For no reason at all. Nebraska is on another level than Iowa. More national champs. More conferance championships.
    Also Texas A@M rival is now Arkansas. For no reason at all. Arkansas is actually an old Texas rival.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    What? A&M and Arkansas played for close to 60 consecutive years until the SWC broke up. They are absolutely rivals.

    Arkansas and A&M is most definitely a rivalry. I think they've played almost 70 times. The game is called the Southwest Classic I believe

    I know what you mean. At least the B1G got something right when they made OMHR our cross-division rivalry game!

    Of course, there is a ready-made rivalry based on geography. It isn't just somebody somewhere calling it a rivalry. Iowa and Nebraska fans are treating it like a rivalry. Thus, it is a rivalry. And this is a form of rivalry that the current realignment based only on TV revenue can never come close to.
