    Not too second guess but..........

    I wouldn't ahve tried the 55 yard field goal. You knew Nebraska could only run and chances are you pin them deep and get the ball back with time to score.

    In OT I like going for it if you are not the better team. If their starting QB is playing I like that but with Green in Nebraska was real predictable. I think actually ISU should be the favorite at that point. ISU has the sr. QB not Nebraska. If you think you still are the underdog at least leave the regular offense in to make the play.

    That being said I really like Coach Rhoades and think he could do some really good things for ISU, just would have done things differently due to those reasons.

    Easy to say after the fact. The guy just kicked a 57 yard FG, you have to have faith in that.

    I had a very bad feeling about that kick, but there was absolute no reason you don't kick it

    I don't disagree kicking the field goal, but it seemed like we kind of settled for it and stopped trying to push the ball down the field.

    Well, I wouldn't have thrown 2 interceptions, and one for a TD, but oh well... not much we can do about it now.

    You shouldn't title a thread "Not to second guess but" if you're going to do nothing but second guess in the post, Captain Hindsight.

    Re: Not too second guess but..........

    I said it before the kick I didn't just say it afterwards.

    here is the reasoning. what is the % of that kick? 35% maybe whether he made one earlier or not. If we punt they should be at the 20 or back fartehr. Then what is our defense's chance of stopping the Huskers with a completely one dimensional offense? I'd say 75% or better. Then they punt into the wind and we have time to go down and score. We probably are in similar field position also.

    Not to mention the Huskers fumbling problems this year.

    Could go either way. Either call was fine with me and either was reasonable. PR plays to win though, no doubt of that, and that is great with me.

    "If if's and butts, were candy and nuts, oh what a Merry Christmas we would have" (Don Meridith from Monday night football) We just took the 7th ranked team to the wire. I love what coach did, he put it on the line and we didn't quite make it. We need to just finish the season with two victories.

    Please do not second guess. This was a great game, just end your thoughts at that.
