Thanks for the history


I had forgotten that CU fans had a hatred for the Huskers pre-McCartney. But McCartney did declare that game to be the annual rivalry game and treated it like the most important game if every year. Link attached.

The predicate for a rivalry seems to be contempt. That is my point.

Let's not pretend CU fans don't have contempt for CSU. It shows up all the time on this board. As a fan, I want a couple of games that make the season acceptable (if we win) even if we otherwise have a mediocre season. I think that kind of motivation makes the team better. It sure worked with the Huskers - but not until McCartney made it THE game.
