2012 M Awards: Most Hated Rival

Is it a rival if you don’t even play games against them? Who knows. Hopefully the hatred in Memphis will subside now that he has won a big one up there in Kentucky? Kentucky and Memphis are both missing an opportunity here to cash in on this non-rivalry while it is hot. Who is running these institutions anyway?

John CalipariFirst Place: 38.73%
Tennessee VolunteersSecond Place: 26.03%
Los Angeles ClippersThird Place: 14.92%

Best song to listen to while contemplating this category… Stab My Back by All-American Rejects. So what do you think, Memphis? Did you get it right? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
