    It had **** fall to do with "protecting the game" and everything to do with the rotation that has been a thing for a decade now. It took 12 years for NDSU/UNI to rotate off. It will take at least 14, if not 16 or 18 for SDSU/UNI to be rotated off. It has nothing to do with protecting any rivalry and just a basic 'Oh, right...everyone is rotating everyone but we can't rotate everyone at the same time"
    I disagree. While there may not necessarily be a TOTALLY "protected" rivalry (that remains to be seen), I'm convinced that the league intentionally chose to delay certain matchups from being part of the "not played" rotation for as long as possible.

    NDSU vs UNI is still a football rivalry. It doesn’t matter that the results have been lopsided. Ohio State has won eight in a row vs Michigan, and the fans and national media definitely think that’s a rivalry.

    Okay, but that was a looooong time ago. Getting back at it after 30 years of dormancy doesn't make it a rivalry, just because it used to have been one. If Creighton comes back in 2040 and starts whoopin' on us in basketball for a decade straight, I ain't gonna call that a rivalry. Frankly I'll just be happy that UNI still has a school/athletics program in 2040.

    Genuinely asking, is it even considered a rivalry? It's been incredibly one-sided, we're in different actual conferences, so we don't see each other any other time (save for wrestling, which is even more one-sided than football has been, but in our favor, which is nice), there's not that much geographical close-ness, at least in comparison to other teams. If I'm NDSU, SDSU and UND are our rivals, and as a Panther fan, I consider SIU and ISU to be our biggest football rivals, maybe the older folks consider Missouri State to be like that, with Drake being our all sport rival.

    Like, yeah, I hate NDSU, but that's because they beat us all the time, not for the fun, dumb, arbitrary reasons that you hate a rival for. And I'm not even sure why an NDSU fan would hate us. Hell with how much we've beat SDSU relative to NDSU, you could argue we've helped NDSU far more than we've hurt them.

    Is that the job of a mod, especially on an apparent "fan" site?

    If you know who I am and how to find me, why not just keep it between us and you can come hunt me down? Sound good, mod?

    If not, have at it.
    I told you a long time ago that you're not Anonymous since you registered with your personal email address. I'm not going to out you and why would I give a s*** about hunting you down?

    Is that a real person? I was just joking. I figured it wouldn't be nice to say who he really is.

    Literally the least surprising news of all time that this dude is human garbage in real life as well.
