Well lets do some math here. If the griz have won 20 of the last 23, then before 'the streak' the Cats were ahead 25-7. I'd call that a good run.
And I still HATE the griz. I will never cheer for them and I never have. Watching them get beat by Richmond was just fantastic by me.
No, before "the streak" the Griz were ahead 48 wins to 32 wins. The all-time record is 68 wins for the Griz, 35 wins for the Cats, and 5 ties. Unlike many Griz and Cat fans, I don't care about streaks. The only reason I even brought up "the last 23 years" (an admittedly cherry-picking snapshot) was because WalkOn79 invented his own cherry-picking snapshot by going back only 52 years (in the post above). In my book, the record is 68-35-5. It's usually Cat fans who want to tinker with that record by saying "yeah, but", etc., "what about the era of 1956 to 1986?", yada, yada, yada. Fine. If you want to mess with the record (68-35-5), isn't it relevant, then, to look at the most recent couple of decades, too (Griz have won 20 of the last 23)? I'd prefer not to argue about that crap. The record is 68-35-5 (and that's a gift, considering the total of 3 wins the Cats have tallied over the past quarter century).
I don't doubt for a second you root against the Griz. The lopsided nature of the record is ridiculous. Frankly, I root for the Cats, because I would love to see a competitive in-state rivalry.
