Big Picture Categories: college football rivalries


King's Cup might be the best drinking game out there. Everyone has their own version, there's ample drinking and sometimes -- on a few lucky occasions -- hot chicks end up naked. One of the best "games" in King's Cup is Categories, which often is represented by the Jack card. In Categories, the person who draws the card says a category (fast food joints, baseball stadiums, etc.) and everyone must go around the circle naming one until somebody stumbles. When that person fucks up, they drink. Make sense? Good.

Last week we went the whole contraband route and discussed names for herb. Since this is a sports site after all, we'll ditch the drug and sex talk today (it'll be back. Don't you sweat...) and talk about the actual games.

Today's category is the names of college football rivalry games. We're not looking for match ups (e.g. Auburn vs. Alabama) but rather the names of said rivalries. We'll start and you guys continue in the comments. You can go again after every five comments. First person to fuck up has to do a body shot off of Fat Bill in HR.

We'll go with our favorite name: the Backyard Brawl (West Virginia vs. Pitt).

Drinks are won and lost in the comments...

Holy War (BC-ND)

Dr. Smooth said...

The Game?? Michigan vs. Ohio State?? The winner of which is, at most, the 11th best team in the nation.

How about Catholics - vs - Convicts (Notre Dame-Miami)

Regardless of where the teams are now, the slogan was spot-on for the time.

Georgia v. Georgia Tech. - "clean, old fashioned hate."

WCT said...

dr. smooth, I'm not sure if you were paying attention, but the winner of the OSU-Michigan game last year went to a little thing called the BCS national championship game.

Brawl of the Wild (Montana vs. Montana State)

Anonymous said...

Since when is Cat-Griz (Montana - Montana State) called "The Brawl of the Wild?" It sure as hell wasn't called that when I was at MSU.

Red Headed Yeti said...

Honestly I am not sure when they started calling it that, I have only heard it called Brawl of the Wild when I am out of the state. When in Montana it is always Cat-Griz.

Dr. Smooth said...

WCT,
I believe the system sent the winner of "the game" to the BCS title game. I'm not sure if you were paying attention, but both participants of "the game" got waxed when meeting real competition. Assuming they played the two best teams in the nation, the point differential by which they lost shows me there were, at least, 8 other teams better, or playing better at the end-of-the-season than "the game" participants.

Yes, the Crosstown Showdown is tops. Two Top 20 college football teams in the same city. The rest of you can suck. New York and Chicago don't even have college football teams, but LA has two, baby.

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
Thanks a lot!
