    Would you rather....

    Win Saturday against Iowa and lose to Kansas State or lose Saturday and start 1-0 in conference play with a decisive win over Kansas State at Arrowhead? I would like to win both, but I would definately take a win over KSU over a win over Iowa.

    Wow, that's a no brainer.

    I'll take a road win over a top 10 team any day. All the better if its Iowa.

    Re: Would you rather....

    I'd rather beat a top-10 Iowa team and lose the rest of our games. I hate everything about the Hawkeyes.

    Re: Would you rather....

    If we beat a top 10 team on the road and than turn around and lose to KSU, I'll be downright ******. I would much rather take the KSU game with a loss this weekend.

    Now if you were to tell me ISU is only going to win 2 games this year, and the 2nd win is going to either be Iowa or KSU, Id take Iowa.

    Re: Would you rather....

    I would rather beat Iowa this weekend. I know people are going to say that conference wins are more important but that is only true if we are going to be in the hunt for a division title which we are not. Let's get a top ten win on the road.

    Re: Would you rather....

    iowa > k-state as far as recruiting goes, too. Bar none. Besides, no way we win the north this year. Unless we beat nebraska, mizz, k-state, colorado, kansas and tech

    Re: Would you rather....

    If it's Iowa or K State, I'm picking Iowa. If it's Iowa or Texas/OU, I'm taking the latter. Beating top ten teams is always a big deal.

    How is ISU not in the hunt for the North title?

    Iowa will be our toughest game of the year IMO.

    Exactly, Mizzou and NU are at home and the last I checked, Mizzou could have lost to Illinios and NU is on their way out of the conference. ISU only plays 4 true away games.
