I swear Im getting moosed at a rate to make a man go insane.

No reason to kick that FG.

Every friggin coach in the country goes for it on fourth down there and makes the opposing team drive the entire length of the field to score.

you dont kick the FG there.

WHY?????????

In case of a block kick and return for a score.


This is friggin crazy

Doesn't make sense if you are backing NW.  But make sense if you are the coach trying to win a game.

Why would you give them a possession in a one score game?

2 possession game.  One of best kickers in game.   Didn't see, but how many yards on 4th down?

it was the right call

the WRONG calls were made on 2nd and 3rd down.
just run up the middle...you'll get 2 yards EASY on NW.
yet they try fancy sweep and runs out wide.  pretty dumb

What do you expect them to do 4th down within fg range with 30 seconds left and a one score game?   Knee it so NW gets to try to tie the game?

NW had no TOs and would have to drive the length of the field and score 2 PT just to tie.  Not really necessary but God damn did it sting after being down by 3 TDs just to come back for that? Oh well

Iowa for me last night. Northwestern for me today. Worst of all Kentucky college hoops this afternoon. BRUTAL.

I was on Northwestern and you're wrong.

A&M has the best kicker in the country...when it's 4th and 6 you kick it there to make it a 2 possession game.

Now, if NU doesn't lose 4 yards on 3rd and 2 then we have a completely different discussion about going for it on 4th and short

LOL. Some of you guys are mentally challenged. Auto 31 yd FG makes it a two possession game. That was the right ( and only) call as much as it sucks for the moose

Sounds like a nonsense statement from a sore loser to me.  Take it like a man.

Kick a short FG and win the game 

or

Go for it, possibly not get it, and give the other team a chance to tie the game???

Tough one... 

The field goal before the half was no good though; that was BS.

You just contradicted yourself. 

"In case of a block kick and return for a score"

That's the equivalent of making the opposing team drive the entire length of the field and score.

If you're A&M would your rather risk N'Western's special teams unit to block your kick and run it back 80 yards or put Persa/Colter back on the field and let them run there offense for a potential score.

You have the best friggin kicker in America and can go up 11 in a blink of an eye.

Or you can go for it, not get it, and give N'Western's offense 4-5 plays to make something happen.


Justifying your losses is fine, if, and only if you know what the darn you're talking about.

If he goes for it on 4th down and doesn't get it then NW still has a chance to tie the game on a TD and a 2 pt conversion.

 

Not sure why you would say the FG in that situation makes no sense other than you obviously had your money on NW.

they should should have been knelling the ball to end the game, but they passed the ball and went out of bounds 3x on the final drive.  So friggin dumb....

Lol why would you even give them a chance to go the entire field to tie the game when you can end it? It makes complete sense and only am idiot coach wouldn't kick that fg to seal it. 

If they didn't get that close to the end zone and got another first down they woulda kneed
