    ISU basketball will always be > ISU football --> http://m.espn.go.com/ncb/rumors

    This article is just the tip of the iceberg to as why Iowa St basketball will always be better to attend or watch on TV.

    Better tradition in basketball = Better recruiting = better coaching = better players = long-term team/player commitments = competing for a natl championship

    Hilton Coliseum > Jack Trice
    better venue to play in = better fans = better media following = national exposure = actual chance to win a natl championship

    GO STATE!

    Why does one have to be better than the other? I love them both equally.

    I am just the opposite, I would trade 5 football championships for one basketball. Hate to say it but I am kind of favorable to women's bb and volleyball too. The truth is, we don't have to make those choices. Therefore, go football team, really like coach Rhoads. He is a credit to the University.

    Why does the OP have an axe to grind with our football program? ISU football will always be king in the ISU athletic department.

    I have learned that when it comes to sports and politics, predictions that include the words "always" or "never" should NEVER be used and ALWAYS be avoided.

    My prediction is that will change, just like the money was in baseball at one time. Football is going down.

    Re: ISU basketball will always be > ISU football --> http://m.espn.go.com/ncb/rumors

    During my time at ISU (04-08) I attended all but one football home game (went to a friends wedding), and only one basketball game in four years. I'm sure I'm not the only one that way since the Football student section is roughly what the capacity is at Hilton. Sure, I'm ecstatic that basketball is doing well under Hoiberg, but the football program will always be my #1, followed closely by wrestling, then WBB, THEN MBB.

    No need to have such a cannibal mindset when it is very easy to be a fanatic about both programs.
