    Would you rather have beaten OU this year or next?

    Had a time killing discussion going with a friend today. Just curious what others think.

    We came close on knocking off OU last weekend. What I'm wondering is if it'd had meant more to beat them this year or in a year where we are contending for a bowl game.

    Me personally I'd like a win anytime but it'll mean more to me when we're in contention for a bowl game.

    We don't play them next year, so I'd rather have beaten them this year.

    Re: Would you rather have beater OU this year or next?

    I want to beat them in both scenarios... I am tired, no offense to the thread starter as it a good topic, to picking best case scenarios... i want it all sometime for the Cyclones.

    Both. But a win is a win is a win, I'll take 'em whenever and wherever we can.

    Both. I think he was talking about when we play them in the conference championship next year.

    Next year because that would mean we would have won the north and played them in Big 12 championship game.

    Re: Would you rather have beater OU this year or next?

    For me its simple even if we did play them next year....

    I wished we had won this year, it would have been a recruiting coup for us....besides, no telling the next time we play OU maybe they're ranked 15th or something, when's the last time you could walk in the office and proclaim ISU had knocked off the #4 team in the land....

    A game i still bring up is when we played FSU in the Eddie Robinson classic, i loved that loss if you can....we played a great game and almost beat a team that would have been an awesome win....

    Days don't come along often when your in position to knock off a top tier team...if only that interception had been tipped into one of our receivers hands....who knows....

    Great point Clonz7 didnt think of that scenario!!!!

    Ha! I didn't think of next year being only playing them if we both make the Big 12 Championship. So yeah, next year for sure.

    Dude, we are like 5-60 all time against OU. I'd take any win and love it.
