The concern is whether or not the WAC would allow it to happen (assuming that IF the Griz move up, they move to the WAC). Supposedly, the reason the Idaho-Montana rivalry died out was because the WAC enacted a bylaw saying that their member schools could not play road games at FCS schools (or maybe it was because Idaho got sick of losing to the Griz ). Just as Montana doesn't want to travel to Moscow every year to play the Vandals, I imagine the Cats wouldn't want to visit Wa-Griz for eternity. Of course, others say that UM and MSU are essentially attached at the hip and that if one goes up the other will follow, in which case the rivalry could continue.Willie wrote:I know a lot of people are saying if/when the Griz move up that the Cat/Griz game will cease to exist...well I call straight bullshit on that. They will make it happen. It's in the top 5 for longest running rivalries, it won't die.
In any case, my vote is for Griz-Cat (and I'll always call it that as long as the Griz lead the series.....so, forever ).
