I was thinking about this topic lately, not sure why....
Let me throw this out there....A wizard arrives on gameday and tells you that you are destined to lose and there is nothing that he can do about it (He is a really crappy wizard). BUT he informs you that you can choose HOW you will lose....You can either lose in a closely contested battle by a final second score OR you can get your doors blown off from the very start of the game....Which do you choose? and why?
LET'S GET IT ON!!!!!
Obvious choice: the humiliation and disgrace from a one-sided beat down; especially if you are going to drive home in your old Ford Pinto.
Anyone have any Enron shares to sell?

Like Joe Theisman did against USC and Texas. and Joe Montana (Can't remember the opponent) Someone help me?
You'd rather lose close. College Football is still a beauty contest and its better to lose close than get blown out. If I remember correctly, didn't we not drop in the polls after that '05 loss to USC, stayed at #9 I think.
Plus, if the wizard already told you that your team was going to lose no matter what, it wouldn't be that big of a kick to the guy when they lost at the end.
Close loss. Kinda like Rocky 1. Shook the champion of the whole wide world sounds a lot better than getting killed. (sorry I watched a Rocky marathon last night)

2 time POTW winner on some dates I can't remember from 2yrs ago at BNG,

I'll take the big loss so the team realizes it has a lot of work to do.

Reminds me of the question whether you rather be hung ten feet off the ground or five. You're dead either way.
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....
POTW 1/31/11 - 2/6/11
