Exclamation Rivalry Week
Is there any team(s) that you think could grow into a big time rivalry game that LU ends every year with? BYU or ODU are obvious to me but anyone else? Growing up a Clemson fan we always looked forward to this weekend and I would love for LU to have the same.

Which games will you be watching today?

RE: Rivalry Week
My list for rivals:
1. BYU
2. ODU
3. JMU
4. Army

ODU could become a reality down the realignment road.
If I am BYU, LU is like playing Tocoa Falls. If they were ever to view us as a peer, we could make it happen.
JMU could down the realignment road.
Army has this thing with Navy already.

RE: Rivalry Week
Notre Dame, Virginia, and Virginia Tech are my top but impossible. Army doesn't do much for me. I respect them but as far as football goes I just view them as a nationally recognized former glory that struggles to be bowl eligible now. Plus they have Navy as a bitter rival.

BYU is interesting. Unfortunately they have Utah as a bitter rival so we'd never be first. Old Dominion makes a ton of sense. They don't have a current rival that I know of and they are in-state. We ought to play them in all sports every year. Provides great exposure across the state for both of us.

West Virginia has no rival in the Big 12 and don't play any traditional rivals annually. Baylor could be possible if they were booted from the Big 12 or we joined and TCU left.

JMU just isn't an option to me. They have made it clear they don't want to be associated with LU at anything so they stay in FCS.

Is it okay to be rivalry-less?

It is okay but isn't college football better because of the rivalries?

It is a good point. Being "rivalry-less" could form into an identity. Could create an "us against the world" mentality.

Penn State has been using the slogan of "Unrivaled" since James Franklin took over. Part of the meaning refers to having no rival.

We could but I like the rivalry games. I don't think there is anything wrong with not having a rival. CCU obviously makes sense since there already is animosity between the two sides. I will be interested to see how things play out. This week just gets me fired up(see what I did there?) and would like for LU to join the party.

RE: Rivalry Week
Pretty much ODU. They are in state, comparatively same competitively (assumed), and may be willing to play us regularly. And, they don’t have a current rival either and we could play on rivalry week.

We have no one else. Maybe, nah, that’s all I’ve got.

RE: Rivalry Week
1. Baylor (Baptist rival)
2. Old Dominion (in-state)
3. BYU (small pipe dream & part of Doc's vision)
4. Notre Dame (major pipe dream & Doc's vision)
5. Marshall (since WVU won't play them)
