    Would you rather....

    Beat Tulsa this year in the Liberty Bowl or next year during the regular season? It is a would you rather question meaning you can't choose both!

    Personally, I would rather beat them next year during the regular season IF I had to choose.

    Win in the Bowl game, then buy out the next years game and play someone else at home.

    Re: Would you rather....

    If I had to choose only one I would want ISU to win the bowl game because this is one of my favorite senior classes we've had and want to see them go out a winner.

    Re: Would you rather....

    Hello? If we can beat them in both, we can choose both. I pick both. Any other answer is irrelevant. So there!

    Re: Would you rather....

    Bowl Game. We need 7-6. We need a winning season. NNEEEEDDD IIITTTTT!


    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

    Winning a bowl game boosts your morale so much in the offseason, I would win bowl game

    Re: Would you rather....

    I would take the win next season as this season is not going to be viewed all that differently either way. This season will be eventually viewed as a stepping stone to our eventual goals. Next year has a chance to meet those goals.

    Anything less than winning both would be a major dissapointment

    I choose the baby, no wait, the pet. I've had enough of situational ethics for today.

    Re: Would you rather....

    I'd rather lose them both. Losing builds character.

    The potential for breaking that losing streak would give us something to look forward to.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Would you rather....

    Why don't we have both?

    If we had to chose, it has to be next year. This season is what it is. Next year is another shot at getting over 6 wins in the regular season and maybe getting to 8 or 9 with a bowl win. Losing to Tulsa next year would really hurt if we want to finally get past 6 wins.

    But I'm tempted to say this year, just because it would suck to drive all the way down to Memphis to see us lose.
