Now that people are declaring that the game against furd is "just another game" and that the rivalry is ending as we know it, I say that we right the wrong done to our (technically older) sibling down in San Jose by kicking those overbearing farm dwellers out of the Pac-12 and welcoming in San Jose State. After receiving their invitation, the first CSU will promptly change their official athletic name to the California State Spartans!! Let's destroy furd's athletic program completely by kicking them out of the conference!
Oregon:Oregon State::California:California State . . . it only makes sense, right?? Some may say that this is impossible, and it most certainly is, but how pissed would furd be if they got a call from Larry Scott and the call went something like this:
(Phone is ringing)
furd: (answers the phone) Hello?
Larry: Hello furd?
f: Oh, hey Larry, how is it going?
L: Fantastic! The new Pac-12 Network is going to be great and all of our member schools are going to be rolling in cash because of it.
f: Sounds great! We could always use more money!! As a matter of fact, we just opened a new aquatics complex (their first guest and the new complex was Oregon).
L: Yeah, about that . . .
L: We at the conference headquarters and all of the other Pac-12 schools agree that you guys really don't bring a whole lot to the table.
f: What to you mean! Everyone loves us!!
L: Not really. I know that you all think very highly of yourselves, but no one outside of Palo Alto cares about who you are and what you do. I mean, you have to fans, your television ratings are in the toilet and they are sure to only get worse now that Luck is gone, and your football team plays in a cat box!
f: What are you trying to say Larry?
L: We've all decided that you are no longer welcome in the Pac-12 Conference and that you will be replaced by San Jose State . . . we think that they will not be quite as annoying as you and they bring A LOT more to the table.
f: Whaaaa?????? You can't do that----
L: SUCKITFURD (click)
Wouldn't it be great? I mean seriously, if the rivalry is dying anyway, let's kill the rivalry once and for all by destroying furd completely and replacing them with a supposedly inferior institution!!
Note #1: This can only happen after California retakes the axe on October 20 so our beloved university will be in possession of the legendary trophy until the end of time.
Note #2: This is in no way a serious proposal . . . unless you think it is a great idea, then be sure to remember that you heard it from me first.
