Sounds like the Civil War got dysentery on The Oregon Trail.

The Platypus trophy is the greatest trophy in college sports. It's perfect. No other trophy combines both schools' mascots into a third, real mascot. I've always thought they should call it the Platypus Bowl.


I never understood why they called it Civil War. Oregon did almost nothing in the U.S. Civil War. And it's not like the image of any civil war is a healthy one, even between rivals.

Bedlam is a neat word. Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate; that's obviously in jest. Holy War, clearly that's a funny exaggeration. But Civil War just conjures up images of Death and Suffering.

Agreed. Would be a great name.

Don't be so sure COFH is in jest. Have you ever been to Georgia?

I don't think the rivalry has anything to do with the American Civil War. Civil wars are not a uniquely American thing. I think it's a play on the literal definition of what constitutes a civil war. "A civil war, also known as an intrastate war in polemology, is a war between organized groups within the same state or country. The aim of one side may be to take control of the country or a region, to achieve independence for a region or to change government policies." Two teams from the same state going at it makes the name Civil War make sense.
