    Would you rather?

    Now that we are excited about football and men's basketball, as we should be, I will play the role of bad guy.
    I don't know how to make a poll nor do I know if I have that ability, but someone can set that up if it's deemed necessary.

    Would you rather have the football team make a bowl game or the basketball team make the NCAA tournament?

    You have to be really good to make the NCAA's, not necessarily so with a bowl. I'll take both.

    depends on what the bowl game is and if your talking about just making the ncaa's or making it and winning a few games in the tourney.

    Thats a hard choice both teams need to get to the postseason, but this is only CPR's first season so he has got time, and GM is running out of it

    Re: Would you rather?

    A bowl game, any bowl game, every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    The money, extra practice time, recruiting, and exposure outweigh any similar benefits of an NCAA selection.

    I want both, but want bowl game more.

    NCAA's no question. Bowl games are watered down, most are no better than the NIT.

    Not necessarily. I think the insight bowl is the only one we made money on. The others we were lucky if we broke even.

    NCAA tourny. In the tournament we are on the national stage, playing in the Independence Bowl doesn't get us much attention.
