Was the Nebraska/Colorado rivalry essentially what Nebraska/Wisconsin is now?

  • Long time Colorado coach Bill McCartney said yesterday that he’d ‘rather be dead than red,’ basically saying that he still hates Nebraska to this day. Nebraska fans definitely didn’t like Colorado, but was the hatred for them anywhere near what their hatred was for Nebraska? Doesn’t help that Nebraska had a great record in the series against them…
  • Looking at today for Nebraska, it feels like they are Colorado in the Wisconsin/Nebraska rivalry. You hate a team because you just can’t beat them (or do it very rarely), and that team probably doesn’t like you because you’re in their division, but they don’t hate you by any means to the extent that you hate them
