Wednesday’s Would You Rathers

So around my parts we like to play a little game called Would Your Rather.  The premise is simple enough – I present you with two choices, sometimes good, sometimes bad, and you debate which you would rather go with.  While mine usually cater to the absurd (‘Would you rather have dinosaur legs or horned owls for hands’ – hat tip to Clay Johnson,) these will all have some tie in to the Kentucky sports world.

————

Would you rather be an Indiana fan or a Louisville fan (obviously if forced by gun point?)

I’ve honestly never been witness to a good Indiana team, and therefore don’t feel the rivalry towards them as a program.  On the one hand, being a fan of Louisville has to be miserable.  You’ve got a coach that is sketchy as all get out, and your primary rival has owned the past couple years.  On the other hand, you would have some success – whereas Indiana is flat out awful these days.  In other words, will you value success or dignity?

Would you rather have Terrence Jones or Demarcus Cousins (on their respective teams?)

The only time I’ve heard many comparisons between Terrence Jones and Demarcus Cousins are from the announcers looking at statistics.  They are fairly different players, but the comparisons have been made so let’s think on it.  By this point in Boogie’s career, he was still having consistency issues, but more often than not provided easy buckets and grabbed rebound after rebound.  Terrence Jones operates more around the perimeter, but still gets the points and the boards.  Both have a tendency to take unwanted three’s, but Jones has a much greater chance at hitting them.  In other words, do you value straight dominance down low or more of a hybrid?

Would you rather have won the football game against Pittsburgh or have Enes Kanter be eligible for the NCAA tournament only?

They say Kentucky is a basketball school, but all too often that over looks the huge amount of Kentucky football devotion.  The Pitt game is over and can’t influence the rest of the season, and honestly there isn’t a huge amount of excitement in being the BBVA Compass Bowl winners.  Still, it has put a negative stigma around the football program that could last through the summer no matter how many impromptu press conferences Joker has.  On the other hand, it sure would nice to see the turk do work, even if it’s only for 4-6 games.

If you have any ‘Would you rathers,’ you would like to see on the site, email them to me at [email protected]

    4) Ditto.

    I’m a UK basketball fan first. I would condemn the football team to endless mediocrity (like that’s a stretch) in exchange for a chance at another title in basketball, and Kanter would sure as hell do that.

    I think the only way to make #3 slightly a competitive argument is to say would you rather win the SEC championship and a major bowl game or have Kanter eligible…. (I’m still picking Kanter)

    Get shot, Boogie, Enes. This was easy, Lentz. How about who would you have rather had on last year’s UK basketball team, Patterson or Meeks? Or Bledsoe or Meeks. Something like that.

    I will take Cousins and Kanter and I refused to answer the 1st question because I would not do either. If those were my choices I would never watch college basketball ever again. And if I had a gun pointed to my head and those were my choices I would go with Polson answer……SHOOOOOOOOOTTTTTT!

    Indiana – Now that Knight is gone there is no reason to hate them. There is plenty to hate about Jurich’s program.
    Cousins – Impressed by Jones but genetically few will be as dominate as Boogie.
    Kanter – I hate to say it, but this year’s football team just didn’t excite me.

    I would revise the questions to:

    1) Would you rather be a Louisville fan or watch Duke win another national championship?
    2) Would you rather have John Wall or Demarcus Cousins on your team?
    3) Would you rather have Enes Kanter eligible or have one of the fab five from last year return (you get to choose which one)

    Cam newton’s dad was not supposed to be at the game. Yet he was anyway. If the NCAA doesn’t do something about this ,then I challenge the entire BBN to protest in St. Louis.

    I’ve thought a lot about this and these factors coalesce into the perfect storm of misery, making being a Louisville fan the worst CBB allegiance in existence…

    – The rivalry is even more intense than the normal rivalry because of Pitino and proximity.

    – Your fans barely own the very city your school is in so you have to bitch about Kentucky fans invading your new arena, bitch about Kentucky radio shows dominating your city’s airwaves, and bitch about all the newspapers having pro-UK headlines.

    – Your school is JUST BARELY good enough to be considered a rival with a school like Kentucky. Louisville is JUST good enough to give fans hope that their program can match up, but bad enough to get those hopes dashed 90% of the time. It’s the perfect scenario for fan-torture, really.

    – There is absolutely no hope whatsoever of your school ever making up the ground to catch your rival. You’re sentenced to lifelong hopelessness in this regard.

    – Your rival is a national media darling (Kentucky headlines are sexy) while you are… well, you’re a lot like a souped-up Ford Taurus.

    God, it seriously must be horrific to be a Louisville fan.

    Kanter takes you from elite 8 to championship contenders. Winning the compass bowl is the difference in being 66th or 67th in football. Not even close.
