I'm just glad that UNC is a really good school.

Yeah, but you have to put up with that whole Duke rivalry biz. Oh no, we both use the color blue, we must be enemies.

...Oregon State U? Why not.

Zephid, as far as I can tell, all schools have a stupid rivalry thing. Both of the state schools I'm looking at do.

Tangent: I've taken the SAT, got 2110. My GPA's about 3.2, though.
True, but I find the Duke/Chapel Hill rivalry in particular to be ridiculous. At least NC State has an appropriate color for a rivalry - red versus blue.

The thing is though that NC State is almost completely irrelevant.

Lol.

Actually, there's a Berkeley/ Stanford rivalry too. Hmm.

The local rivarly here is between Texas A&M and The University of Texas. Though, really, only A&M cares about it, I think. No one I know who goes to UT seems to care about this "rivalry" but my "Aggie" friends are pretty die hard about it. There's also a minor one between ...Texas Tech, I think, and UT, but I didn't even know that one existed until this year.

Rivalries?

Ateneo and De La Salle. Yes, especially in basketball.

I'm attending one of the two. guess.

Finally, an excuse for colored words.

I know, like, four people who would deck you for saying that. I also know around five people who'd get your back with weapons. Needless to say, I know enough people to turn this sentiment into a real melee. waii Rivalries are fun to exploit.

How do you make colored words because i want to throw out the Alabama and Auburn rivalry.

Thanks guys. The Iron Bowl is always the last game of the season for both Bama and Auburn and it's always chaotic. I always loved the opposing Bama and Auburn chants that happen midway through the 1st quarter.

Oooh, I started a trend :D

OT: I was under the impression that there's a technical difference between California State schools and University of California schools.

I know there's a difference between University of Texas and Texas State. Don't know about California, though.

WSU has a great veterinary program and as far as I can see seems to be more sciencey in general. UW is older, and has a really awesome language program.

Don't know about California specifically, but here they all fall under the purview of the UNC system of publicly-funded schools.

The University of Alabama is the only college in Alabama to offer courses in music, anthropology, library and information studies metallurgical engineering, Romance languages, and social work while Auburn has one of the top agricultural programs in the US and has 6 NASA astronauts as alumni.

Yes, I know, and Berkeley runs Site Y. You're really not helping.

Edward R. Murrow is a WSU alum (never woulda guessed from all the buildings named after him), as are Gary Larson, D.C. Simpson, Timothy Leary, and Bill Nye. I guess that's pretty cool.

Nobody from UW really jumps out at me. Bill Gates's dad, but eh.

edited 28th Nov '09 7:45:48 PM by Tzetze

Tim Leary went to Berkeley for his Ph D.
