I'd like to see comments & thoughts on the relative merits of OSU, ND, and MSU. Who is our rival? Who do you hate most? Despise? Respect? Other?
I remember hearing that Michigan always played hard against OSU, but respected them as a worthy opponent. I seem to recall the same as regards ND. MSU has had charges of playing dirty as a team.
For me, I would rank the following way:
1) OSU is our prime rival. I don't hate the team, but definitely want to beat them. It is hard for me to despise the coach. I don't like the fans at all.
2) ND, I like the Univ, want to beat the team, can't stand the coach, although I'm glad he is there (as it only helps us.)
3) MSU, I don't care for the coach, always want to beat the team, but it's hard to view them really as a rival.
