    what would you rather?

    dont kill me if think this is dumb question (most of mine are). But,

    would you rather
    1. win big 12 tourney but bow out second round of NCAA

    or

    2. bow out in semis of big 12 and make to sweet 16

    and none of those answers of win and 16...that is course object and my hopes and thoughts

    Great question, I'd say win the Big 12 tourney.

    Sweet 16! I think that'd be awesome and I believe this team can do it.

    Sweet 16, as the payoff I think is better in terms of national recognition, and the excitement and hope that generates for the fan base.

    Re: what would you rather?

    I would say Sweet 16. Farther in the NCAA's the better.

    However if we did win the B12 Tourney, no way we wouldn't at least get to the Sweet 16 with the way we would be playing.

    I think winning the big 12 tourney means more in the long run.

    I'll say win the Big 12 tourney because we get another trophy for the case.

    Re: what would you rather?

    Win the Big 12 Tournament. Especially if it means we beat Texas, Missouri, and then Kansas.

    You never said we lose in the Sweet 16, so I am going that route.
