An old score you want to settle with non-rival

Submitted by Human Torpedo on July 3rd, 2018 at 8:42 PM

What program in any sport do you want revenge in particular against either in conference that isn't MSU or OSU or in non-conference that isn't ND in football or Duke in basketball. Has to ideally be either A) a team we got we got swept by recently in a home-and-home in non-con, B) someone we lost to in the postseason in any sport or C) a Big Ten team we have a losing streak against of more than one game. For my choice, I'll go with Iowa in the Big Ten, Utah in the non-conference in football and in basketball Arizona for sure

I say a prayer once a week for the showdown against the Trojans who I hate so bad. My hundreds of prayers have been in the cosmos demanding the Rose Bowl in the title game within the next five years. It doesn't even have to be the title game. I just want the matchup in their backyard with the once again well oiled machine like it was back in the Schembechler days. I hate that school so bad. I even rooted for the bucs in whatever bowl game it was last winter.

It was a while ago, but it's Oregon for me. They ambushed a damn good UM team in Autzen in '03 and flattened them in the big house in '07, while laughing about it (looking at you, Dennis Dixon). Still can't get over it.

South Carolina football. Living here in Columbia is almost unbearable sometimes with constant reminders that they own us. The only thing helping is I’m friends with a lot of Clemson folks, so we can talk about waxing OSU some, which is fun

i would also say UNC basketball.

Florida State in football. Hate those guys going back to the Terrell Buckley game.

Also USC, both of 'em, in football.

Basketball has got to be Villanova right now.

Agree.  There were ways to win that FSU game but that Terrell Buckley play frustrates me.  I was sure it was pass interference (I was at the game) but then I saw the replay.  Very clean pick six.  Coach says Desmond Howard has to learn to know where is the DB and protect the ball.

That staggered kick-off return last time around still leaves me sick.

Even the series record against Texas.  Or Tennessee.  Maybe Kansas State.  Or Oklahoma.  I also wish we could have gotten a winning record against Iowa Pre-Flight before they stopped playing.

Utah. The 08 team sucked and they were pretty good (13-0 beating Alabama in the Sugar Bowl) so that one doesn’t bother me.

The 2014 game was hell. The rain, the Clay heisman pose, Gardner and Morris equally sucking. I stayed in the parking lot and re-entered to watch the game end.

2015 was an infuriating game full of missed chances. Utah is a middle of the road Pac 12 team and I am tired of them having our number.

Iowa and it's not even close. I'm an Iowa alum but I'll be damned if I don't root for the wolverines in every sport. 2016 shouldn't have happened.

Well, these aren't that old, but we are 0-2 against Utah & S. Carolina the last two times we've played each.  We lost to Utah in '14 and '15 and we lost to S. Carolina in the Outback Bowls in '12 and '17.  I'm also a little bitter about losing to FSU two years ago in Peppers supposed last game that he never played in and the Alabama game in '12 where we got handled.  I don't like our chances against Bama yet, but I wouldn't mind extracting some revenge on Utah, S. Carolina, & FSU.

The 2007 Oregon game made me feel like I was in a room full of hot women with my pants around my ankles wearing Sponge Bob underwear.

i was more embarrassed by that game then App State.  App State was a fluke . . . it was the first game of the year, some players were hurt, it was a beautiful lethargic-weather kind of day.  The team plain and simple had its head up its ass.

But Oregon was not a fluke.  It was a pantsing on national TV.

I want some payback.

This will always be Wisconsin for me. Scheming bastards, they regularly get us right before OSU or I'm the first conference game after they feast on a month of cupcakes.

Villanova in basketball, but that's less hate-filled revenge as just wanting a runback.

Nebraska in football because I've still never gotten over them wrongfully stealing half our national title.  And also USC because...everything?

I'm late to the party, but if I am ever diagnosed with a terminal disease, I'm headed to North Carolina and will burn Boone to the ground.
