Whatsthesnapcount brought up an interesting idea in the "Games you wish you were at thread" that at first I thought was crazy, but after awhile I was still going....hmmmmm...
Would you give up a Michigan win you experienced (not one 50 years before you were born), to prevent a Michigan loss another time? Would you give up a win in 97 to prevent the Horror? Or a lesser game like WTSC picked, PSU 05? (Still a tremendous game). Would you trade a couple of wins vs. Some other teams for 1 vs. OSU?
And how about affecting other teams? Back when OSU was going to play for the National Championship vs. Miami, we asked each other if we would give up a win in our game if it meant OSU would lose too. We beat Auburn, and OSU won the title. And in the aftermath, with all the "Buckeye Glory" talk, we weren't so sure it was as good of a trade. Would you give up a Citrus Bowl win to have the OSU title drought continue (even more painful now that they've lost twice more). How about Lloyd's last bowl win...trade it for him to beat OSU that year?
And if you throw in other sports...what would it have been worth for Webber to not call time out, and pull off a win? (And before you start, the NCAA NEVER comes down with the hammer on teams that WIN it all, so you can bet the records wouldn't be vacated if that was the case).
So, is the idea crazy? Is every win to valuable to sacrifice it in a "what if"? Or can you think of a "fair trade"?
(Giving up a win in a 3-9 season to beat OSU in 06 is NOT fair...)
