    Football vs. Basketball

    If ISU was ranked the same in football and men's basketball, which would you be more excited to watch?

    Re: Football vs. Basketball

    10 years ago I'd say basketball. Now I'd say football. It seems to be a bigger deal nationally. Actually, it's a lot bigger deal.

    Football. Basketball rankings move so much and the midseason really doesn't mean much of anything. Football on the other hand is more difficult to get into the top25, but it means a lot more.

    Also, if we were ranked in the top25 in football, that means we've really jumped up and beat some teams. In basketball, you can start out with a great record beating no one and get into the top25.

    Re: Football vs. Basketball

    Basketball rankings mean absolutely nothing.

    Football ones, for better or for worse, are much more meaningful.

    Re: Football vs. Basketball

    I think a top 25 basketball team creates a more exciting atmosphere then a top 25 football team does. You can thank Hilton Magic for that.
