No, its the rugby!

Fair enough Teddy Hall has more history, but I think the architecture at Keble is much better.

Eh? They ain't on spcjcr.com which I run, and definitely not on the official college one!

SPC detest them because in rugby the final is between us and them half the time. Last time they won 25-12. This time we won so the hatred's channeled instead to Brasenose over their attempted domination of club 'Filth' on Thursday nights.

When I was at Worcester for interviews I saw the Brasenose poster on Filth. I thought it was quite funny actually, " Soldiers from Brasenose have been ordered to fight on all fronts.."!. Does a lot of this kind of stuff go on?

I'm a first year. I know quite a few of the 3rd/4th years, but not loads.

I find the whole college rivalry thing quite funny. I can't help thinking that each oxford student believes college relationships are tantamount to the stability of society in the united kingdom, i.e. you think your little feuds and actions mean a lot, when they don't

They're more just funny really. I don't know of anyone at Oxford who actually takes the whole thing particularly seriously...
