In the Spirit of the UConn Huskies, Let's Make A Rivalry Out Of Nothing!

New, 4 comments

UCONN decided to create a random rivalry game with no history and poor geography: we decided to do the same...

By now you've all heard that UCONN decided to start a rivalry with UCF despite the Knights denying that they knew about such a concept or trophy.

Well we here at Underdog Dynasty know plenty about useless history and fake trophies, and we also tend to have very interesting conversations late at night. So we decided to create some rivalries on our own.  The only rule was this: they could not be current rivalries.  Let's see what we could come up with:

Georgia Southern - Georgia State

Nic Lewis - Since this is only a rivalry to 50% of the participants, the GS-GSU trophy is really just a jug full of Eagle Creek water that the Panthers stole. It doesn't get passed back and forth

Will Butler - "Dude just take it, it's yours."

Nic - The Panthers eventually cave and drink from it when they almost win in 2025 and everyone dies from dysentery.

Middle Tennessee State - Troy

Nic - These two teams used to be rivals.  How about this: the trophy is an iPhone full of phone numbers of ex-girlfriends you wish you were still dating.

Chris - *SPITS BEER*

Louisiana-Lafayette/Louisiana-Monroe/Louisiana Tech

Will - Soooo how about this: for ULL-ULM-LTU, they just pass around Ed Orgeron every year. AYOWANNADOACOACHOGOTTADEMGUMBOONDAJUMBOSHRIMPPACKAGE

Chris - Good Lord.

SMU-FAU: The Dead Hooker Trophy*

*Allegedly

Chris - How's this for over the line? Winner gets the leg lamp from "A Christmas Story"

Will - GODDDDDDDAMN.

Marshall-North Texas

Chris - How about we call Marshall-UNT the Green Rivalry? Winner gets a patch of grass to color in the teams specific green.

Nic - I'll one up you: LOSER GETS THEIR HOME TURF REPLACED WITH THE OTHER TEAMS SHADE OF GREEN TURF.

Chris - HA!

Idaho-UCONN

Will - Idaho and UCONN can play for a Bottled Fart.

Nic - OH DEAR JESUS! A BOTTLED FART FROM BOBBY PETRINO'S MISTRESS.

Will - Now someone is going to be strangely aroused from that...

Nic - Probably Diaco.

Charlotte-UTEP

Chris - How about Charlotte and UTEP? The rivalry can feature a golden nugget shaped like a tooth...

Nic - Better yet, the loser takes a pick-axe straight up the you-know-where.

Chris - ...Yeah. Or that.

BYU-Cincinnati

Chris - The Cougars and the Bearcats play in the "WHY DON'T THEY LOVE ME?" Game.

Nic - Winner gets Tommy Tuberville (because as we all know, even when Cinci wins, they really don't).

Chris - More importantly, the loser gets another rejection letter from the Big 12.
