    2. The majority of the viewers were focused on the that game and Kentucky was overwhelmingly the best team in the country.

    I am going to go with beating Nebraska. 3 straight bowl games would have really upped CPRs street cred on the TV sets. It also would have been great to send Nebby out with that little nugget to remember us by.

    Beating UK. That would have put us on the map in a HUGE way. Every analyst would have had a heart attack after that game. The Nebraska win would have just been a another good win for CPR.

    Re: What win would have meant more?

    I think #2 is the obvious choice as they were the best team in the country last year...this is a tough question though when you think about it...#1 not only would have been a win to get us bowl eligible again, but considering it was kNU and the last time we will have played them in the foreseeable future and it was so close and my hatred for the fuskers.

    Re: What win would have meant more?

    Well, we've been to 11 bowl games in school history and have only made the sweet 16 three times in modern history (omitting the final four trip in 1944). Also, the MBB team has only beaten the #1 team in the nation once (KU in 1957) and ISU has never beaten a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament.

    Re: What win would have meant more?

    Beating Kentucky would have dwarfed aything the football team has done up until now. The only thing that would have been bigger for football would have been if we didn't lose another game after beating OSU and that win would have given us some serious credibility as a football team.

    The thing is, Beating Nebraska in 2010 would have put us into another low tier bowl. Beating Kentucky would have easily meant we were final 4 caliber and probably have made it there.

    Unfortunately, we didn't win either game.

    Has to be number 2. Beating the team that was head and shoulders above everyone all year, on national television (and I believe the only game still going at the time), would have been HUGE.

    Beating the 3rd-best team in the Big 12 to make it to a lesser bowl game wouldn't do as much for football as a win over Kentucky would for basketball.

    Agreed. Beating Kentucky would have the entire nation talking about ISU, beating nebraska would have us talking about ISU( which we would do anyway), and whoever we would have played in a bowl talking about ISU.

    As others have said, definitely #2, and who knows where that run would have taken us.
