    Countdown Clock

    Fanatics --

    Now that we are in the middle of overlapping seasons, which do you prefer.

    Focus the countdown clock on football only and pick it up with hoops after the season is over.

    Or...Swap between football and basketball...Let me know.

    What you did this week worked well. Nice reminder for the BB games.

    Re: Countdown Clock

    Is it possible to have two clocks--one for FB and one for BB?

    Re: Countdown Clock

    I would personally prefer no countdown clock until the new posts button gets moved.

    Yes. It is possible but I don't think that is a route I am interested in going. Good idea but there are other issues that have to do with advertising space, etc. that would be affected.

    Re: Countdown Clock

    Swapping is good. In a sense, it only matters for another week, but swapping works.

    Now, a special bowl game countdown clock would be nice!

    This is a joke right? I am so pumped about the Alabama St game that I am gonna watch it on my 2nd tv during Bears and Vikings.

    Keep it on Football we dont play a meanignful B-ball game till Jan

    PS -- I am a season ticket holder and ticked off ISU scheduled Sunday afternoon games. ISU on average schedules less than 1 per year and this year have 4 Sunday afternoon games. Why not Sunday night if it has to be Sunday?

    How about clocks that appear on a rotating basis every 30 seconds or so? This wouldn't take any more space. It would also allow you to include WBB (and other sports) if you want to do so.

    If we have to pick one, it is clearly Football until after our bowl game.

    Re: Countdown Clock

    i say go to basketball...we should all be able to remember our 1 last football game. but a bowl game count down will be fun and that will overlap more than just a couple basketball games. so i guess my final answer is switch to basketball until we have bowl situation figured out.
