    If ISU were to..

    Win a national championship (only chance is really wrestling, maybe volleyball with the rise of that program), what sport would you like it to be in?

    Football. Not to be rude but it's a no-brainer.

    The sport that generates the most revenue: football. Men's basketball would be a close second.

    Re: If ISU were to..

    I voted football. I like basketball more as a sport, but the football championship would lift the whole university and athletic department in ways that a basketball championship couldn't possibly match.

    Re: If ISU were to..

    mis-read the question - voted for sport most likely to win national championship: 'rassalin!

    I would like to see a football championship, but not reality in my lifetime - ISU won't spend that kind of money.


    Everyone is entitled to their opinion - no matter how wrong they may be.

    Re: If ISU were to..

    between basketball and football, basketball is the only sport that provides a true national champion. Football schedules and bowls are not a great indicator of a championship in my opinion. Basketball has a large enough playoff that the winner of the tournament can legitimately say they earned the title.

    Re: If ISU were to..

    Went with basketball, as that sport has the most chance of once it's built (and not screwed with) it can be sustained. 2000 we were knocking on the door, and then the situation blew up. Football you may have one good year, but then if it happens your coach will be gone unless you are a USC, etc. and you will be back to a middle-level bowl team firing coachs left and right because they can't match the success of the National Championship.

    Football. Not only is it the biggest revenue generator, but it's my favorite sport by a mile.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
