    Would you rather what?

    Edit... You fixed it... nice.

    Edit #2... Your options suck. I refuse to choose any of them.

    It's a lose-lose-lose, not a very good poll

    I cannot understand anyone who doesn't choose the bowl game. If nothing else, the bowl gets us money and extra practices, which we need.

    Re: Would you rather Part 2

    I deliberately made the options sort of lose-lose.

    You have to choose "big wins" vs. "positive marginality."

    I guess that should've been the poll

    I couldn't really include "other" with this one, either.

    Well, to go to a bowl we would still need to beat some good to very good football teams. So Bowl.

    Bowl game. My predictions have us losing to those 3 teams anyway, and a bowl game would be huge for this team given the schedule

    Re: Would you rather Part 2

    I think the last choice is a very realistic scenario.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    I chose beat NU and Iowa. Winning those two games in the same season would be like winning a bowl game to me.

    Re: Would you rather Part 2

    The only real answer here is option 3. Losing to Texas, NU and Iowa and making a bowl means that we potentially beat Utah, OU, and Tech which would all be huge victories for our program given the level of success of those 3.

    This is a no-brainer;

    Just like last year, a bowl, any bowl = more practice time / more recruiting exposure.
