    What are you more excited for?

    Next year's football team or next year's basketball team?

    Fred has got us up in the top 32 two years in a row, but is losing a lot this year. Fred has proved them wrong two years in a row.

    Offense should be the best it has been under Rhoads, but the defense will take a hit. Wally has been a miracle worker before though.

    I'm leaning football partly because I love football but I'm hesitant If trends mean anything, football losing a low level bowl game < basketball winning a NCAA game.

    Basketball for me. These past two years have been exciting to watch and I'm looking forward to the future.

    That's kinda where I'm at, but with losing so many and the potential in football I'm more split than I would have been if we were returning even half the players we lost in basketball.

    On a side note I wonder if this will hurt football season ticket sales this year. I have a feeling that sales might be down from last, but I could be wrong.

    Always football for me. I know way more about basketball but I love college football religiously. I know that Fred will get us to the Final Four someday, but I dream of Rhoads taking us to the promise land (whatever that may be). The unlikely dream outweighs the rest.

    I'm always excited for football season, and August always seems like it is the longest month of the year. The nice thing about basketball is when the football season is winding down, the season is just around the corner. However when basketball ends, football season is still 5 months away.

    If it has this logo on it: Then I'm excited for it. Football because it is up next. But man...the next 10 years (and hopefully more) of Hoiberg and Rhoads will always have me pumped.

    Re: What are you more excited for?

    CPR always seems to get overlooked this time of year because of the quality job Fred does but I love me some football and Paul Rhoads. I can't wait to beat the Hawks again and grab another big upset or two. I'm real excited for football.

    Basketball. We'll be a good team and we'll protect the home court so I leave games happy. The same doesn't apply in football.

    Huh? What is the logic of a successful BBall season hurting FB season ticket sales?

    I am excited to party with Elian Gonzalez. I hear he hates Kansas too. He has this hilarious youtube video where his harem does this "I hate KU" dance while he is smoking cigars and drinking mojitos like a a little mini-me Castro. Elian is more down than Pit Bull.

    Re: What are you more excited for?

    I'm always more excited for basketball; I just love the sport so much, and I know relatively less about football.

    I was always much more excited for the football game "experience" than the games themselves, especially for those first few games. I always loved the feeling of sitting at JTS for the first time of the year (even when we fielded crap teams), and the weather is usually awesome for a month. After that, the weather gets crappier, the baseball postseason consumes my sports attention, college basketball starts, and for most of my life, ISU's season was a bust anyways.

    Basketball. EASY. I love me some Cyclone football, but I never played football so I don't have the connection with football like I do basketball.
