Face it...other than family and close friends, few fans for either school closely follow the minor sports. It's football and basketball, with baseball perhaps a distant third...and it's that way in much of the country (hockey in the north, baseball in some southern areas, wrestling in Iowa, etc).
The driver in the rivalry was and hopefully will again be football and basketball. And I personally am willing to trade lumps (grins) in playing both.
