    Question posed on Dan Patrick this morning...

    Would you rather win your bracket pool, or have your favorite team win the tourney?

    To me, not even close. Typical bracket wins maybe 100 bucks. I would much rather the Clones win it all. Dan Patrick said he'd rather win his bracket.

    Depends, is it the billion dollar Warren Buffett pool?

    Because, don't get me wrong, I love the Cyclones. But...

    I'd go this way:

    1) Win the Billion $ Bracket
    2) Cyclones win it all
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    100) Win my pool.

    Billion dollar bracket no question. Donate $100M to athletic department as an apology.

    I would give a lot more money than I'm willing to admit to see ISU win it all.

    Re: Question posed on Dan Patrick this morning...

    I think most would rather have ISU win the tourney than win your average office pool pot. The better question is what is the tipping point for winnings where you would rather win the money than ISU win?

    Forgot to specify. They said, "forget the billion dollar bracket". So, no billion dollars. Just typical office pool stuff.

    This.
    And then I would donate $250 million to ISU.

    Great question, and I was thinking about this as well. I honestly have no idea what I would be "willing to give" to see ISU win it all.

    Re: Question posed on Dan Patrick this morning...

    I'd take a billion over ISU, but winning my bracket is a lot further below ISU winning it all than ISU winning it all is from the billion.

    Re: Question posed on Dan Patrick this morning...

    If I won the 1 Billion, I would make sure ISU had very nice athletic facilities... and would make sure their coaches are fairly compensated.

    And then, I would donate $1.8M a year to Iowa so they can keep Francis around. I love what he's doing to their program.

    I just picked ISU to win in my bracket, thus I get the best of both worlds!!

    If it is office pool or virtually any other pool, ISU wins all the way. No question
