    Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    I know we just had a "most hated team" poll, but who would you like to see us create (or grow) an all-sport Big 12 rivalry with? Explain if you'd like...

    Re: Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    I don't want Kansas because they get no respect in football - just basketball.

    My #1 rivalry choice (which many disagree with) is Okie State.

    That is, assuming we already have a minor one with K-State.

    Re: Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    i personally would be ok with just ruining every team we play and not having a rivalry, however, OSU or WV would be allright

    Re: Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    I'd love to turn the Oklahoma series into a rivalry. To do that, we'd have to beat them something like 20 or 30 games in a row. They'd still have a 70-30, something like that, advantage on us even after that. But I would give a lot to see us run off a string like that on OU.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Re: Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    If we're doing both sports you're probably looking at KSU, when factoring in distance and competition in both sports (since KU barely has a football team).

    I dont think it'll ever go that way though. KU will always be the most hated team in basketball... and maybe KSU might become a football rivalry. Maybe.

    Re: Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    I want a true rival with any of these because it would mean that we are relevant. I want us to be that team that other teams fill the stadium when we come to town. I chose OSU because I want that team to have money and recruiting ties. TCU was probably my second choice. KSU is the obvious choice, but it does nothing for us and our reputation as the schools are way too similar in profiles, except academically of course.

    Re: Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    This is always a tough question. Picking one team for both sports is difficult, but KSU is probably as close as we have right now for both sports. We have been pretty evenly matched in BBall the past few years with some really good, close, games. We've also played them tough in football the last few years.

    Re: Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    Well I'd say I hate Kansas the most in bball. Easily. Tie for 2nd most hated bball would be KSU and OSU.

    Best rivals for football would be KSU then OSU.

    I went with KSU for overall balance.

    Re: Ideal New Big12 Rivalry

    I know it's dooshy to come in and say "I don't care" but the idea of a rivalry kind of escapes me. Personally I want to beat KSU more than any other conf. FB team and I want to beat KU more than any other other BB team. I don't think any other fanbase considers us a rival and I consider that a good thing.

    Easily Kansas in basketball, and we kind of are already. Also, Kansas State in football, and it isn't becoming a rivalry, it has been one for some time.
