    Would you rather:

    On KXNO earlier today Murph and Andy asked the question of whether you would rather beat Iowa at Kinnick or beat Nebraska at home this year. I have always thought that the majority of the fanbase would give up a win against Iowa for a win against Texas (subsitute any other major conference foe). What are you thoughts?

    Nebraska, and it's not even close. It's nice to beat Iowa, but ISU needs conference wins.

    Edit: Bizarre, Cyclonestate78. We are of one mind.

    Nebraska and it isn't even close. Beating Iowa is fun but at the end of the day it means nothing for bowl placement when compared to any of our conference games.

    Glad to see we are on the same page to begin with. Hopefully this will put an end to the idea that ISU fans only care about beating Iowa.

    No matter what the Cocks say, this is not ISU's "super bowl," it was McCarney's.

    Re: Would you rather:

    Nebraska. This could be the last time we play them in a looooong time and I would love to have bragging rights for the next ??? years.
    We play Iowa every year, so those bragging rights only last 356 days.

    Guess I was thinking about going forward. And I am not suggesting it would be a every year event, but I would trade every win over Iowa for a win in conference in every year it we have won recently. If would could get the level that we were splitting home and homes with the major conference players, I would be thrilled!

    I would much rather beat a top rated team rather than an over-rated one.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    There is no doubt about it. Winning conference games is what matters. Sure we would love to beat Iowa but that doesn't make our season. Going to bowl games and trying to compete for a North Title are way more important to the program.

    Well with the legal issues Iowa has been through and the over-hyping of NU, both may be over-hyped right out of the gates

    Re: Would you rather:

    A win over Texas would do the most for this program, followed by a win over Oklahoma.

    Let's just beat em both, ok?
