Faculty Lunch Seminar
The 11 Rivalry Elements in Sports: Do They Apply in Your Discipline?
Presented by Joe Cobbs, Haile/US Bank College of Business
Wednesday, February 14, Noon-12:50, Steely Library 304
After surveying over 10,000 fans of collegiate and professional sports, Joe Cobbs (NKU) and David Tyler (Western Carolina University) have explicated 11 elements that frequently contribute to rivalries between teams. While fans view certain elements as more important to their favorite team's top rivalry (e.g., frequency of play), other elements seem to fuel animosity between fan groups.
With research on the topic that has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and several other media outlets, this lunch session will raise the question of how one or more of the 11 rivalry elements may apply to your discipline of study.
Bring your lunch; dessert and refreshments are provided. For more information or to RSVP, contact Allen Ellis at (859) 572-5527 or email@example.com.
