    College, NFL, or Fantasy Football?

    This weekend was one of those weekends where none of my teams won and I was trying to figure out what I would prefer for a weekend. If only one team could win on the weekend, would you prefer your college, NFL, or fantasy football team to win?

    Here are my picks in order:

    1. Cyclones - I am way more obsessed with the Iowa State than I used to be, I blame Cyclone Fanatic for this problem... and the Kool-aid...

    2. Fantasy Football - There is money riding on these players.... luckily I went with my gut and benched RGIII yesterday... that should definitely helped me to stay in the bottom third of my league...

    3. Vikings - Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Vikings fan, but I'm not getting my hopes up... this week, I had my hopes up thinking they would contain RGIII and save the weekend by winning and making me feel good about my fantasy football team. They did neither, and helped to make my weekend an 0-3 weekend.

    So, what do you prefer, college, NFL, or Fantasy football win?

    Iowa State, 8 days a week.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Re: College, NFL, or Fantasy Football?

    I would say I'm the same. My fantasy team is struggling a little bit this year. (Had DeMarco and Mendenhall get hurt this week) so the Lions might surpass them in a couple of weeks.

    Re: College, NFL, or Fantasy Football?

    Part of my hate for college football is the fact that I can be relatively sure that I have seen the absolute best my team could ever finish, and that's sorta upsetting. I KNOW they will never win a NC ever, in my life.

    3 leagues:

    1. $215
    2. $175
    3. $750 per team, but we have 3 owners. So $250 per and then you bet against every team every week. So you actually have $130 on the line weekly. If you are the lowest scoring team that week, say gbye to $130.

    Re: College, NFL, or Fantasy Football?

    1. Cyclones
    2. Fantasy Football - my team started off 0-3 but will be 3-3 after tonight. Rodgers, Cobb, and Welker have gotten me a lot of points the past few weeks. Wish I'd had the Giants defense in yesterday instead of the Cardinals.
    3. NFL (Falcons)

    We played $5 per team the last 2 years and I won both times. Bumped it up to $10 this year and I'm about to go 1-5.

    College, 110% of the time.

    If I could choose between the Vikings winning a super bowl and the Cyclones winning a NC I'd take the Cyclones every single time.

    But like I said, the problem with that are the odds. The Vikings actually have a chance. So you are hoping for something that just won't happen.

    I would have my Patriots lose and get stomped (plus lose $) in fantasy football every week just to get a Cyclones win.

    Cyclone FB >>>> Fantasy Football >>>>>>>>>>>>> Watching NFL games.

    I realize NFL games are what make fantasy football possible, but I really don't care to watch them very much.
