Would you rather...
« on: May 08, 2018, 09:01:56 am »

Gomer and the boys had a couple of 'would you rather?' questions today on The Morning Rush. Let's dive in.

Would you rather rehire Bielema or Pelphrey?

Would you rather go to 5 Final Fours or win 5 College World Series titles?

5 Final Fours. No question and shouldn't be debated.

Yet Bert is leading the poll.  I voted Pel as well.  Thought recency effect would cast more of a negative light on BB.  And although Pel got a little scratch for being canned BB got 10 mil for walking away.  That money could have been put to much better use yet some would rather go through that again.

The show is becoming nothing but these irrelevant "would you rather..." discussions .
Not to mention the awful intro they play at the top of each hour featuring the same horrible Tupac song that Gomer used on his noon show. I try to listen most every morning but I find myself changing the station.

At least BB gave us a couple of bowl wins, some good tweets (if you weren't blocked), and entertaining press conferences.

Agree on the CWS titles, though. Why would anyone want to get to the Final Four and lose 5 times? Just ask Buffalo how they felt in the early 90s. No one wants to be the best loser.

Making it to the Final Four isn't quite like the Bills deal.  And college basketball is immensely more popular than college baseball, even in Arkansas.  This is a superfan site, so it may not feel that way to you, but it's true.

I'd give BB the nod-- less dysfunctional off the field and gave us some good NFL pros to watch for a long time.

Agree. I absolutely couldn't with Bret. It would've killed me.

But hell, Mike's only made the tournament 3/7 years. Pel was 1/4. Give the man three more full seasons and he might've (yay, hypotheticals!) matched that.

But yeah. Bielema was killing me slowly.

I don't support the hogs financially and emotionally for NFL reasons... Although I love to see Hogs do well in the NFL, I support the hogs because I want the hogs to do well. No way I could handle another year of BB.

That people would rather do something other that win 5 nc's in a sport that, at least at AR actually is self supporting, says alot about Hog fans.

Let's see, Razorback baseball, softball, track & field, updates on stadium expansion, MLB, PGA Tour, NBA playoffs...just to name a few.
Again, that's why I'm changing the station more frequently. I just don't happen to care as much for the show as I once did. Just a matter of personal preference.

I'd bled it out with Pelphrey before hiring Bart back. Here is one:

Pel was in the post-Nolan hibernation phase of Arkansas basketball.  Nobody remembers the 2000s because they didn't go to games (except me), so they can't figure out why Mike isn't winning more now that the program is respectable.  Pel was just... bad. 

But you might be right... how many blown 4th quarter leads by BB?  How much soul was sucked out of that open end zone?

The income generated, not only directly, but indirectly from media exposure would be far greater from going to 5 FF's than winning 5 CWS.

College baseball is a great sport and it's growing but no one outside of college sports fans really pays attention to it.  Everyone gets in on the NCAA tournament.

Sure, but this isn't the Business Journal. This is a hypothetical situation on a sports message board and while the lead up would be great, I can't imagine going to 5 Final Fours and losing every time...

Most of our fans, whether they like baseball or not, rally around the team each year and enjoy going to and watching the Hogs be competitive in a major college sport. Give me 5 CWS Titles.

To the first question, I would rather just die and get it over with.  The answer to the 2nd one is, I would rather win 5 CWS titles.  Getting to the final 4 means nothing to me, it's like being 2nd in horse shoes, but not even that good.

Do they mean consecutive final fours and CWS titles?

Five consecutive final fours means we are an absolute power house in a sport that people actually care about.  It would skyrocket our recruiting and keep us relevant for years.

Isn't that inferred though? Otherwise wouldn't the question be something like, "Make 5 Final Fours and win X championships?" I interpret "Make 5 Final Fours" to mean make 5 but lose them.

But it is Nabors and Co., so...

Yes debatable since it didn’t say anything about winning the Final fours but did say win the World Series. I think I would prefer the known wins versus simply appearances with unknown wins. Now if it were win all in both sports I’ll take the Final Four.

Very well should be debated.  Some on here are saying that College Basketball at Arkansas over Baseball because no one really cares about it?  Well, I have to admit, I'm not a  baseball fan at all, only care because it's Arkansas baseball.  But, look at the attendance at the baseball games and then at our basketball games, I'd say there's quite a few that care about it and 5 CWS Championships would make Arkansas one of the preeminent powers of the Sport.  We already are the Program to look up to in College Track & Field, we are strong in baseball, strong in several lesser sports.  But 5 CWS titles would put us in elite company, I'll take that any day.  Going to final 4's and then losing them is nothing special to me, we've been there, under our current situation we'll never be there again, so I don't even think about it.  Once our AD and big money boosters get tired of mediocrity and get a capable Coach and invest in our basketball program, I guess I'll just be happy like they are hoping to make the big dance every year.
