    If we beat SDSU regularly again, all of the sudden it'll become the cute little brother.

    To the point of this thread, whatís considered a rivalry? What games would make the cut? Idaho and Boise State May have been a rivalry but it no longer is. Thatíd be like calling UNI and Iowa rivals. Itís at fit many of the criteria but itís just not.

    There are some UNI fans, and many NDSU fans, that would call that game a rivalry. Almost all UNI fans and a large number of NDSU fans (especially the long time/more involved/knowledgeable) would say it is an intense game, heated on the field, but itís not a rivalry game. We only play NDSU in football. Itís not a rivalry game for is (UNI).

    99% of people from the outside would look at UNI/Missouri State and go ďno way thatís a rivalryĒ. UNI is 33-5 against MSU, MSU hasnít won since 05, and about 1/3rd of the games of the series has been a laugher. Yet itís a rivalry for us. ďBear weekĒ rolls around and it means something. Week, it used to mean more but it turns out after winning 33 of 38 games and 12 in a row in blow our fashion the fans start to lose interest to students and upcoming generations it isnít as important, but overall itís a big thing. It also doesnít help that former UNI coach, Terry Allen, is no longer the HC at MSU.


    The MVFC is weird in that way. Itís a only football conference made up of 3 conferences. The MVC teams in the MVFC will come sidered each other rivals and the Summit teams will consider Summit teams rivals and YSU is all alone and doesnít belong with us.

    The one exception is WIU, who has been a MVFC/Gateway member since day 1 with 30+ years of games against the MVC teams

    Side note while I said Iowa and UNI is t a rivalry that is the one game I want to win. Period. I want to beat Iowa. Couldnít care less about ever winning a natty if we beat Iowa.

    Also, NDSU fans can STFU about that one too

    I like the idea and maybe itís something the wedge member can spitball behind the scenes to creat something.

    Ironically enough, the year we beat Iowa we didn't win the National Title.

    Felt like a wasted year.

    Didn't your non involved fans storm the field at the garage when UNI beat us a couple years back. Your whole season is defined by whether or not you beat NDSU, don't kid yourself.

    Re: Who's your rival?

    Itís not.

    Weíve also been on the field after SIU games. Big deal.

    In general our fans arenít all that bright in these situations.

    If we beat EWU and Montana this season, all will be forgiven. I assure you, there will be rushing of the field after getting that monkey off our backs.

    I agree with this but UND is still the "natural" rival and probably always will be.

    SDSU is a "manufactured" rival. They didn't do squat in D2 or basically throughout the history of the 2 programs except their run from 09 on.

    UNI isn't a rival either. It is fun to beat their asses but football and now wrestling again are the only sports that will consistently play each other.

    But make no mistake, in football, everyone is gunning for the Bison and it doesn't matter what anyone from the other Valley teams say on here.....every team has the NDSU game circled.
