And note this is part football/part basketball post...
Based on everything you know today, would you rather have beaten Oregon for the p12 championship in football and then lose to Iowa State in the Rose Bowl?
Or would you rather beat Oregon on Sunday and go to the Elite 8, only to lose to Gonzaga?
So basically which is valued more: A P12 championship + Rose Bowl appearance or an Elite 8 appearance?
Another question: Better to beat Iowa State and win your 25th (26th?) Rose Bowl? Or better to beat Gonzaga and make the Final Four?
So which is better: A Rose Bowl win or a Final Four appearance?
Where do you stand on these issues? Just curious if basketball is still simply a lowly undercard to football. Or if accomplishments in basketball, as somewhat meager as they have been compared to football, hold more value due to their relative scarcity?
What say you?
