    Which Team Do You Prefer?

    I want to preface this by saying that I do not want to make this a WM v. GM thread.

    This is just a simple question that I have based upon a very prevalent topic of discussion or point that many like to make on this site.

    Please vote in the poll as to which team you prefer.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    GMac will win this by a mile...it is futile to even post it.

    Re: Which Team Do You Prefer?

    I think people will come to like McDermott's style next year when we start winning more games. You could see us starting to "push" the ball a little more as the year went on. With Gilstrap, Buckley, Garrett and hopefully Colvin I could see a little more uptempo. Christopherson also adds a little bit of quickness.

    Re: Which Team Do You Prefer?

    I want to see a team that does its best, but with that said, there is no way I can vote for less wins unless something unethical is going on.

    Re: Which Team Do You Prefer?

    Of course I want a team that has more wins. I do feel that if Gmac had that exact same team, they would be a lot better. I never liked Morgan as a coach.

    I don't want to be a downer but what if Gilstrap doesn't get here? Call me a half empty guy but that kind of stuff always happens to us.

    Re: Which Team Do You Prefer?

    I don't really think this is even an accurate poll, because I feel like there were a few games we should have won that we didn't - Big 12 play was about what I expected but the noncon was worse.

    I'll always take more wins. No contest here.

    But we'd still be in the discussion for the tournament with that record. Even if its dissappointing I'd still rather be relevant. With our records the past few years we are no longer relevant.

    I could give two and a half ****s if we win a game 28-27. I'm just sick of losing games that we can win.

    Why ask a question if you know the answer?

    I'm guessing the OP is referencing 2005 when we did make the NCAA with that record.
