    You sure about that MABC ... South Dakota State and not Territory? We didn’t gain statehood till 1889!! :D

    Oh, had family attend both Universities. Got snowed in at your Dakota Dome in ‘82 following a track meet too.

    For the record, I went to USD-Vermillion, so I do, in fact, "Hate State," which is required by state law, and it's only out of patriotic fervor for my home state that I find myself in the odious position of defending those in-bred, toothless cow-punchers with their annoying cow bells. SDSU is a fine institution and is comparable to its older, smarter brother--USD--in all things besides academics and athletics.

    I'd like to point out that neither SDSU has defeated Nebraska, though those Jack@$$rabbits scared some poo-poo out of me in 2010 when I would have preferred the Apocalypse to having to hear State fans brag about beating Nebraska. On the other hand, guess which USD has defeated the Cornhuskers?

    Yes, I'm sure. Both USD and SDSU were established before statehood. SDSU was 1881, and USD was 1861, which is why most USD graduates are at least 20 years ahead of those animal necrophiliacs up north.

    I want to attend the Nebraska-SDSU game and show Nebraska fans a level of hate that would frighten them, their children, and their parents; on the other hand, I'd be homicidal if it turned out to be a close game. In case you're wondering, yes, I have participated in throwing dead jackrabbits onto the floor at U-State games, and, yes, it felt right. It was a great tradition. I thought that it would have set the right tone to occasionally throw out some dead Norwegians, too, when we played the Augustana Vikings, but people get all testy about that sort of thing.

    Well, that is an interesting factoid on USD — established 8 years before NU.

    I’ll have to ask my cousin’s boy, a freshman animal science major at Brookings if the dislikes are mutual. ;)

    At least neither schools have become a prison like the one my mother once attended in Springfield.

    I can assure you that the hatred is mutual. Almost everyone who attends either school had the other in their final choices, but once you show up on campus, the hate is real. We used to research the personal histories of the State players in both basketball and football so that we could sit behind/beside their bench and get them more than a little distracted. It was brutal ... and effective. If your dad went to prison, you were going to hear about it. We also liked to pick some schlump on the bench and start cheering for him to get in the game, complaining about him not getting playing time, etc. Those guys loved us.

    Funny, I spelled it with two l's and it came up on this stupid HuskerMax spell checker as wrong. Know it is a French word and thought it had a double l like Papillion... Well, I fell for the spell checker over ancient experience. I am learning to hate spell checkers and auto-wrong. Wikipedia also said the color sometimes is spelled with two l's; and I have always understood the name to be a reference to the color.
