Usually here on Tweet Of The Week, we focus on a tweet from the previous seven days. But nothing jumped out at me, to be honest, so it was going to take some digging.
That's when Andy Katz stepped in.
Yes, I know, I hate giving Andy Katz credit for anything. But he published a story today where Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey discusses the non-conference scheduling for the Irish once they move to the ACC. Brey is particularly interested in maintaining rivalries with Marquette, DePaul, Villanova, St. John's, and Georgetown. There have been a number of opinions on this from both inside and outside those schools' fanbases. But it ultimately led to this retweet by Katz:
RT @ericdbertram: @espnandykatz Most Marquette fans/alum consider ND our biggest rival. I expect the series to continue if ND is truly...— Andy Katz (@ESPNAndyKatz) September 18, 2012
That last sentence was truncated by Katz's Twitter client, but that's not the main point. I read the first sentence and immediately disagreed. From my own view point, I would have tabbed Wisconsin as our biggest rival, followed by Louisville and Cincinnati. My own personal history with Marquette basketball goes back about the same length of time that MU has been in a conference with both the Cardinals and the Bearcats, and I don't think I need to explain why the Badgers ended up on the top of the list.
But that's my opinion and Mr. Bertram's opinion. What's yours? Vote in the poll and use the comments section to explain your vote as needed.
