Football Rivalries

There have been a few stories this week about UGAg players saying that Georgia Tech is not their biggest rivalry. Tony Barnhardt has a great column pointing out that the UGAg players aren't allowed to decide who their biggest rival is - it's decided over generations and they're only allowed to suit up and participate in for four years.

One of the comments to the column made an outstanding point. Your biggest rival is not necessarily the team you want to beat the most - it's the team you least want to lose to. In that case, there's no doubt - I would trade the Miami victory for one over UGAg if I could only have one. Who cares about ACC standings.... What do you think?
