    ISU FB on sportsnation

    sportsnation is doing worst of 2010 and the two point attempt against Neb. is one of the nominees. So far it has made it past the first round.

    A lot of people will say that was a good decision. Maybe they forgot about a hurricane wind.

    The Houston collision knocked ISU out but in this case that's a good thing.

    Re: ISU FB on sportsnation

    It maybe was the worst throw. I still believe that the play was a good call. He was wide open, it worked... in a way :(

    If they're referring to the call, that's asanine. If they're referring to the throw itself...well, it wasn't great, unfortunately.

    Re: ISU FB on sportsnation

    The play was there, the wind is not an excuse. It was poorly executed, but a great call. Anyone who nominates it as being a "worst call of 2010" doesn't understand the game situation at that point.

    I also don't think it belonged on there. I just happened to be watching and saw it. I love how except for the CPR Neb locker room clip ESPN always find a way to have a laugh at our expense.

    No, this is what made it a terrible decision. That, and having a back up punter rolling to his left trying to throw right handed.

    If they are referring to the shot put throw, then yes I'm on the bandwagon.

    Deserving nominee. Bad call, worse execution.

    Re: ISU FB on sportsnation

    The call was excellent - the receiver was wide open in the middle of the end zone. The backup punter has to make that throw, though - I don't care whether the wind was calm or blowing at 100 MPH. They practiced that play dozens of times in practice and CPR was confident the play would work, and it would have, if the backup punter wouldn't have thrown it so bad my two year old daughter has made better throws. Call was perfect, execution was anything but.

    Great call, horrible execution.

    Re: ISU FB on sportsnation

    For all the people saying it was a great call but bad execution, doesn't a coach have to factor in how the play is going to be executed when he's calling it? Rhoads obviously knew it was a backup punter throwing the ball into the wind.
    I'm not saying at all it was a bad call btw.

    Not necessarily. CPR said it worked great in practice over and over, otherwise, he never would have went for it. I'm sure he told the punter to make sure he puts enough steam on the ball since it was windy. But, he can say everything in the world, but execution is still up to the player performing it.

    They had been practicing the play to be prepared for that moment. The wind had little to do with the incomplete pass, the backup punter choked in the moment. If the coach had just reached into the playbook and brought up this play without having practiced it since August, then I would agree that it would have been a bad decision.
