Even though ETSU is no longer in the Southern Conference one of our biggest rivals to me and to many other ETSU fans will always be Appalachian State. The two campuses are only separated by 55 miles of mountainous curvy roads and have been playing each other since 1928. ETSU holds an overwhelming lead in the series but that never diminished the rivalry. Anytime the two teams met it was always one of the exciting games of the season. The visiting team would usually bring a large amount of fans and typically the matchup would end up being one of the largest attended games in the basketball season for both schools. Three of the top 8 crowds in the history of the Mini Dome were against Appalachian State. This game from 1991 was no different. This video is from the 1991 season in a sold out game of over 8,000 inside the old Varsity Gym in Boone, North Carolina. Of course this is the 1991 team featuring Mister Jennings, almost every Southern Conference game for ETSU that season, home or away, was a sellout crowd.
