    A house divided

    Saw a license plate on the front of a truck that had LSU on one side, and ULL on the other. Underneath was written "A House Divided."

    Okay, so I assume that part of the family roots for one and the other part for the other, but it strikes me funny that one would make, or worse!, buy a license plate like that. Is there a market for such plates, where someone could afford the cost of production in the first place?

    Also, is that something you'd want to put on your vehicle? No, it's not a big deal, but I ask myself if my wife, and sons, were so stout in their support of LSU that I'd put a Tech-LSU "House divided" plate on my vehicle and the answer is a resounding HELL NO! Just TECH for me.

    Those plates are very popular in Oklahoma with OU-OSU. Seems to be popular when an OSU grad marries an OU grad. But, their rivalry is very different than the one between LSU and everyone else in the state. The state of Oklahoma does not openly favor OU over OSU or vice versa.

    And Georgia/Ga Tech and Georgia/Georgia Southern.

    Dawg80, it's not for an individual who roots for both, but usually a couple with ties to each school. My brother has one (don't think it's on his car, though) because he is a Ga Tech grad and his wife is a UGA grad.

    I see lots of them around these parts with Arkansas and something else: OU, Tenn, or lsu. Even UA/Texas!

    They're pretty popular.

    I can see how you might get one if you married a grad from a rival school. Or if your kids went to rival schools.

    But don't they know the rest of that saying?

    I don't believe in mixed marriages. Don't ever marry anyone from a rival school!

    Saw 'em all over the place up home for UVA/VT. Usually in the form of a sticker, since you have to have a license plate on the front and back bumpers @ home.

    They have them at the Tech Bookstore.

    You just buy the generic plate and then customize it with school stickers.

    Madly popular here in Austin. Mostly see them on the back of Maroon duallies. Cracks me up thinking about a hick from A&M marrying himself a crunchy hippie chick from UT.

    You can avoid talking about politics pretty easily.

    But you can't escape football.
