Perhaps nothing says hatred like college athletics. We have witnessed the body painting, we have seen the flaming objects hurled onto the court. Yes, we have seen the pants waving from atop the flag pole. And today, we salute those pants.

Before we get to the Stanford Festival of Hate, we thought we'd bring you up to date on the aftermath of the Rose Bowl. Always one to kick a rival when they're down, UCLA's What's Bruin had a nice parting shot for their friends the Trojans.

It's a clash of ideologies as well as traditions — Stanford people seen as snobby gourmet cheese-eaters, Cal's as Bohemian sidewalk tie-die shirt hawkers. Anyway, most of the nation's Stanford hate emanates from areas in and around Berkeley. Let's take a closer look, shall we?
