    wow maryland WON with 16 yards passing

    against navy. navy went for it on 4th and goal with 34 seconds left and did not get in. poor call imo, dominate the whole game (sans turnovers). take the points, go to ot, and win because you are the better team. hindsight.

    Missed FG earlier in the game by Navy may have been a deciding factor to go for the TD.

    Points (FG) were no guarantee either really. Earlier in the game the Navy kicker doinked one off the upright from 33? yards out and maybe missed another. It took some brass to make that call for sure and it didn't pay off. Watching the game though, you would have certainly thought they could get that 1/2 yard without much problem.

    Or the possession before halftime where Navy didn't get any points. Navy should have won that game.

    Re: wow maryland WON with 16 yards passing

    I think the 3 Navy fumbles on the Maryland 6, 2, and 1 were bigger than the missed FG or stuffing at the goal line. They don't fumble there and it's a completely different ball game. Shot themselves in the foot on this one.

    Re: wow maryland WON with 16 yards passing

    They flashed it fast (so correct me if I got this wrong) but didn't a graphic during the game say that the teams had 8 players at over 50 yards rushing EACH?!?!

    Re: wow maryland WON with 16 yards passing

    I think the multiple red-zone fumbles (which contribute to the failed possession at the end of the first half as well) made this call necessary.

    Hold on to the ball, and this call isn't needed.

    I think that was 8 players over 50+ yards for both teams combined.
