    Taking a knee to go into half

    For everyone who booo's when we have taken a knee to run out the clock before half time.
    aTm was down 14-0 with the ball and 30 seconds left in the 1st half. Goodson fumbled, TD for Miami one play later. aTm fumbles the kickoff, and Miami kicks a fieldgoal to go up 24-0 at half time.
    From manageable deficit to trying not to get blown out in 30 seconds. Ouch.

    yeah but you cant play not to lose. if aTm wouldve scored a td it wouldve been 14-7 and people wouldve been praising them.

    Never take a knee on last play when you are at midfield. That is self defeatism when you are behind in the game.

    I agree. The odds of you making a big mistake (that costs you points on the other end) are fairly small. You just can't sit on it and be satisfied with finishing that part of the game on the losing end. You've got to fight. You've got to show your team you're here to win.

    I just figure never take the knee if you're behind. But I've always been sort of a reckless dude.

    Re: Taking a knee to go into half

    I am no mathematician, but I would think the odds of the other team scoring have to be about as close as us scoring. If in anyone could find stats one way or the other it would be great.

    Re: Taking a knee to go into half

    The point was a defensive penalty would let us possibly try for a fieldgoal in one scenario. We needed the practice. I do not expect to take a knee like that for rest of season. Maybe the staff felt more insecure than the crowd in the HSU game.

    You are up on Iowa 12-0 - you TAKE A KNEE.

    Agreed. It's fine to take a knee when you have the lead.

    It's when you are behind that you should not be afraid to take a shot.

    I don't know if you take a knee, but all the wisdom I have heard says you run some safe, reliable plays, and see if something pops and gets you some field position.

    Re: Taking a knee to go into half

    I am also talking about the Kent State game which we did lose eventually. We have been taking halftime knees for three games now.

    Re: Taking a knee to go into half

    So, by your "logic", why didn't Miami "take a knee?" Could it be that they WANTED TO WIN???? Tell me how, MNClone, does your argument ONLY apply to aTm and NOT to Thug U?

    The team that plays most aggressively gets the win.

    Nothing says "I don't trust you incompetent jerks" more than "taking a knee" at halftime. Sure, bad things happen, but "taking a knee" is the moral equivalent of the "prevent defense". Playing not to lose is never a good battle plan.
