U.P. Football Rivalries

This off season we will be working full time on the research of football rivalries and the death of them in the U.P.  Up first is the Iron Mountain-Kingsford football rivalry which ended under the decision of the WestPAC Conference Athletic Directors. What is planned is an entire web page dedicated to it.  It will include historical scores, coaches, dates of the games, game records, pictures, and game previews from each and every game along with the write-up of the game itself. We will add as much information as we can to give the entire history of it from start to finish. It is apparent that many of the people making the decisions on the importance of these types of games are completely out of touch with the long time fans as to the true history and meaning of the rivalries to the communities. 

Once the IM-K rivalry is set we will focus on the Negaunee-Marquette rivalry next. Time permitting we will keep moving on to others and eventually get to those few rivalries that are still active at the moment.
