    Re: Would you rather...

    Win the next two, and it isn't even close. When was the last time we were 8-4 and finished a season 5-0? It would be one of the best seasons...well...ever. I'd take a loss in a bowl (likely to a top 25 team) to get that.

    Bowl game. The next two teams we have to play are ranked. Bowl game would be more exciting for our program.

    Re: Would you rather...

    Win the next two. Easy question.

    Hell, I'll take a win in Norman and losses at Kansas State and in the bowl, personally. No chance that we play in a bowl that gives us a victory as important as beating a top 10 Sooner team at home.

    That said, let's go get all three.

    Re: Would you rather...

    Win the next two, easy. Look who they are against. Both highly ranked. Bowl game opponent will probably be unranked if we lose out, so it's not even a contest. Wins against top 25 conference opponents are always better than wins against non ranked out of conference opponents.

    Agree. Winning two more games on the road against ranked opponents to end the season with a 5 game winning streak trumps a loss in the bowl game. ISU would get lots of pub and respect with that. And think of the rep for Barnett.

    Winning 2 more games in the toughest conference in the nation and ending with a SOLID record would be more exciting IMHO. Doing so would have us beating the top 3 teams in the conference this year.

    8-4 w/ a bowl loss. As much as I don't like losing a bowl game, it'd be a slightly higher-profile bowl, and loss would come against a better team.

    Plus, I'm not sure where ISU would finish in the conference at 5-4 without running the scenarios, but it could be as high as fourth (we'd even win a tiebreaker over OU if OSU beats the Sooners) it'd be several places higher than expected, with wins against at least two of the top four teams.

    I think about making either-or posts from time to time, but I usually don't because I figure it'll get a lot of "why not both?" responses, or a 3rd non-existent option.

    Re: Would you rather...

    Win the next 2. Against OU and ranked KSU? I would LOVE that, even over a bowl game that would end up being against a very good Top 20 - Top 11 ranked team.
