Should we agree to be rivals with the Stanford Cardinals?
« on: June 05, 2021, 12:23:16 PM »
It is obvious they want to be in a rivalry with us but with the current ongoing west coast rivalries with USC and UCLA do we need another one?  The Cardinals seem to be mostly regional so I don't know a lot about them.  Maybe someone with more info can weigh in.

Well, they recently canceled their awesome wrestling program, citing financial reasons, despite alumni generating enough money to sustain the program on it's own.

I don't think we want to be aligned with a school that's so disconnected from its alumni.

Standford brings absolutely nothing to the table in terms of good sports teams. I think I’ll pass.

We already deal with one fast food taco chain-affiliated university.

Feel like the only thing they’re known for is that rapey swimmer.

Hard pass.

I got some messages from Iowa State fans that they want to be the only Cardinals we play so there is that.

Sure, rivalries are fun and they don't all have to be with storied programs like Texas, USC, and UCLA

Is there any mascot that is overused as much as "cardinals"? Tigers maybe I guess.

They repeatedly copy off of us in referencing family in sport venue naming.

Apparently one family owns their entire athletic department or something, I don't know.

Strange

So they're the Cardinals but they have a weird nightmare fuel tree as a mascot?  They seem very confused to me.  No thanks, do not want.

I think the tree is supposed to be where they live.

The tree is haunted / animated by the spirits of dead cardinals.  :ohno:

Cardinals are pretty overrated as far as birds go. The last time I was at my parents' house, some stupid cardinal was sitting on the windowsill to my bedroom, banging its head into the glass. They might not be the very dumbest of all birds, but they have to be in the running.

I like Cardinals and it makes me happy when they eat from my bird feeder. I hate maniac trees, though!  :curse:

Mrs. Dax and I observed the same Cardinal pair who had their little one's eaten by the Barred Owls last year, built right back in the same bush again this year.

Welp . . .   :frown:

There are a ton of teams that use Cardinals, that is another con at agreeing to be their rival.  Are we playing Louisville?  IDFK

This, I talked to a stanford bro and he said the tree is like a big cardinal den that they swarm out of and peck you or something.

Most birds will fly into a window, get embarrassed, and then fly off (assuming they survive the crash). Not cardinals, though. They get up and keep flying into the window over and over again until they finally die.
