What's your take on college rivalries?
I did not grow up where passionate college rivalries took place. I got a chance to visit Alabama during football season and was witness to a heated (borderline fist fight) Auburn vs Alabama debate in the middle of a sandwich shop -- my first observance of a passionate college rivalry. Then every once in a while the news pops a story (i.e. U of M and Ohio State with a U of M fan renting a billboard located close to the Ohio border reading "Liar, Liar Vest on Fire" in reference to the Jim Tressel mess)
I hear some rivalries can go to the extreme. Your thoughts?
