    Our Cyclones now have the reputation of being a spoiler/winning big games we shouldn't due to performances from the past few years. My question is this: would you rather beat an undefeated KSU this weekend or beat an undefeated WVU in the last home game of the year? Don't say "both" because that ruins everything.

    I think I would rather beat KSU just because their fans are almost intolerable and I have grown to hate almost everything purple kansas. We have had some tough losses against them as well that factor in to my decision. However, I am pretty sure that Bill Snyder will not let himself die until his team plays in another BCS bowl so it may be better to let him have this one so the world can watch him dissolve into ashes after their BCS game.

    On the other hand, WVU would be a bigger win nationally because of their unreal offensive output thus far. They are also the "new guy" in conference and I don't like the thought of them rolling through the Big XII in their first year. In a defeat, Geno Smith's Heisman chances take a hit and that can be added to our new spoiler reputation.

    Any other thoughts?

    KSU. We owe them.


    WVU is a noob and we dont have any history with them yet.

    KSU because of how close its been the last few years.

    Also KSU would be another win over a top 5 team in less than 12 months, while WVU may or may not be still ranked that high in several weeks.

    KSU - we owe them and it would be a huge bump to confidence and visibility. Should help with all the remaining games and ongoing recruiting.

    This. We owe KSU bad. And so far, some of the WVU posters seem pretty cool. Purple Kansas is filled with dbags.

    Personally i would rather us beat KSU right now. I think its huge for this football team and fan base to beat a ranked TCU team and turn around the next week and beat KSU

    I guess KSU because we're building up this Farmageddon rivalry which I love, but I also want a rivalry with WVU, like bad. I have friends that go there, we are very similar schools and a win against them their first year in the conference with possible NCG hopes on the line would build that possibility up.

    Normally I would vote KSU, but I went with WVU since it's the only game I'm going to this year.

    I saw one of the ESPN talking heads give his Top 5 Heisman candidates: three were from West Virginia! I love the idea of being a BCS and Heisman buster again this year.

    West Virginia if they're 10-0 when they come here. Because it'll be Senior Day on national TV. Crazy amounts of exposure.
