    My first love is football but I'm greedy and want them all to happen. Even rowing!

    The Penn St team you're talking about had 2 losses, not 1.

    We need football for the simple reason that if there isn’t any, non-revenue sports like baseball are going to disappear.

    If you had to choose between the FB team making the playoffs or the BB team making the final four, (both this year)...how would you vote?

    Final Four because that team might be good enough to win 2 in a row and get hardware. I've seen Clemson in person. They would hang 56 on us. If Eppy had come back and we had that one difference maker on the line, maybe I would change my opinion. I don't want to be in a playoff scenario unless we have a team like '09 or '02 where we would theoretically have a puncher's chance against the big dogs. This team prolly ain't there.

    Basketball... more games and better opportunity for the team

    From a practical standpoint, we need football more than anything because of how much revenue it produces for the athletic department that winds up paying for most everything else. But selfishly I want basketball because it's the sport where they have a legitimate chance to compete for the B10 title and make some noise in the NCAA.

    I'm curious as to what sport Clinton picks. :)

    Tough question. I said football. I pretty much quit going tailgating and going to the games but instead host a watch party with 20-30 people (usually outdoor) that lasts all day - so pretty much tailgating at home. Usually my favorite part of the year. Basketball has a lot more games and we look to be pretty good next year but none of my friends or neighbors really follow it so I usually end up watching them alone. Fantastic question!

    Football. I will always choose football.

    That said, there is something pretty special about March Madness if your team gets on a roll.

    Especially now that watching Iowa baseball is interesting.

    If the football team made the playoffs, that means they would have probably won at the 'Shoe and would have won the B1G title in Indy as well. Both those things coupled with getting to hear for a month about Hawkeye football on a national stage until their playoff game would be awesome. Gimme that over the Final Four.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but as much as I like football more than basketball, this year I'd choose basketball. If all goes right, this could be on of those once in a generation type seasons. Holy crap!... 1980 was a generation ago!. If LG decides not to come back, can I change my answer?

    A generation is like 20 years, bud. One of my hombres who was born in '78 already has grandkids.

    The basketball team didn't get a chance to prove they could make a postseason run last season. We have the best player in college basketball returning. And its a great style and pace of basketball to watch.

    Don't get me wrong, I love football Saturdaysamd I do hope we get them back. But basketball team is preseason ranked in the top 10. Top 5 of some poles. I hope we get to see all three teams complete their full seasons or at least through postseason play.

    Football. That program is trending in a direction that could better than what everyone thinks basketball will be like this year.
    This football season could be spectacular. A B1G championship could be within our reach, which means a playoff berth. Beating OSU twice in a season will be something we will remember for the rest of our lives and rank this season as one of the best ever, if not the best ever.
