Would you rather crush your rival leaving them helpless to do anything like Bama did to Auburn the last 2 seasons and LSU in the BCSCG or would you rather pull out a last second win at their place after their fans had begun celebrating certain victory like Bama did to LSU in 2012?
Note: used Bama games as that's what I am familiar with. Could have used Mich/ND in 2011 or Alabama/Auburn from 2010 as well.
Depends on the rival. I don't like for georgia tech to score one single point. Other games, I like an exciting win.
Love to watch BAMA crush UT and auburn, but a last second win can be fun as well. I'll go with the crush since that leaves out the option for a moral victory. They really see how pathetic they are when they get steam rolled..
Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
My favorite was watching the home team getting up 24-0 as an underdog in a rivalry game only to hear the visiting fans sing Rammer Jammer to an otherwise empty stadium. The 2010 IB will be tough to beat in that regard.
"So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth."... Rev. 3:16
Vandy beating UT is fun no matter the margin of victory.
Can you beat an Auburn team bad enough that they don't claim a moral victory?
I don't think it's possible.
Sad to think that if Tennessee doesn't turn it around, one day we will laugh ay Vandy for losing to Tennessee.
Personally, I think Kentucky beating Tennessee for the first time in 25 years with a backup WR playing QB a couple of years ago was better.
You're most likely right. At least they didn't get beat by fifty is probably what the majority said the past couple of years..
The beat down is always preferable, save for a few notable exceptions
Nothing like not letting your rival cross the 50 in a win
Since I'm an LSU fan.. I can answer this for you.
The last second loss was worse for me because we already beat you guys the MNC year. Plus, we actually looked like a good offense in the game last season, the MNC game was just soo bad offensively that it helped ease the pain bc it was laughable.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
When it involves my team, I prefer the blowout. I hate the stress that comes with miracle finishes.
Gimme 38-0 over the Bush push anyday.
I'd rather blow out OSU. Nothing better than the 2008 Civil War. It was big play after big play, each one breaking their cold black hearts a little bit more than the last one. Washington is fun to beat like a drum, but at this point I might prefer the close win just for something different. 9 straight wins by at least 3 scores. It would be annoying hearing them brag about the moral victory though. Next year would surely be their year, that's for sure.
Any other schools have a winning streak like 9 straight wins by 17 plus points against your rival? I'm sure there are a couple of similar runs out there.
From the 2005 game when Leinart fumbled out of bounds and the clock ran out, only have the officials put 3 seconds back on.
Because then the pathetic retards show how stupid they really are calling it a fluke when they cannot find the words to explain that the better team won when it mattered. It's also nice to see you guys cry and your coach act like a punk ass bitch.
in 2011, I just started hitting on girls instead of watching so it really didn't matter.
Last year, I didn't give a shit.
Getting blown out really doesn't affect people with a sarcastic sense of humor. Then it goes from pulling for your team to making fun of your team and chatting it up with everyone around you.
Crush. There's no moral victories in a thorough beating.
Blow em out at home, last second win on the road.
Best : Beating them and crushing national title hopes, especially if they are favorite going in/higher ranked
Doesn't matter : kickin that ass or winning a close one, a W is a W imo unless ^^^^ that happens

Yeah.. There's NOTHING better, as a fan, to go into another opponents stadium, at night.. On Primetime TV and look like a bunch of gangsters and curb stomping the home team. Seeing the look on the other teams faces, the fan faces and coaches. Just the best high a man can get, in my opinion

I was in Bryant-Denny last year, started drinking mid-way through the first quarter, blacked out around 9 or 10, woke up in my buddy's bed with my girlfriend next to me instead of jail or hospital.
Moral victory if I've ever heard one.
Huddles are for rookies.
"Get in where you fit in." Life is, Too Short TL;DR
This is what I was thinking. You know as well as I do that in the B1G if it comes down to a last minute game it's a rite of passage to claim the "refs effed yo","if he hadn't dropped that one pass", etc;;;;; It can never be that the other team just played harder that day because of who you are and it's a rivalry game.
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
Yep-see Nebraska's victory over Penn State last year. Prime example.
Plus, you haven't much choice the last 2 years. Unless you consider Samford a big rival.
Both types are enjoyably. As a bama fan we have lots to chose from. Hanging 40+ on aubie and Tennessee year after year is fun.
