    4th and 2... why not go for it?!?

    I am no football coach or head coach but why not go for 4th and 2 with Oklahoma winning by three scores in third quarter. Why play like Danny Boy again. I thought we were over McCarney era?

    I love Coach Rhoads but this is among probably the few times I didn't understand his play call.

    I am not saying we win this game but why not go and let Woody do his magic on 4th and 2? Trust the team for crying out loud.

    Defense was playing well and ultimatley did make the stop. Offense wasn't playing well at all at that point during the game.

    Don't get it and you give OU the ball with a short field. Punt it, flip the field and hope for a defensive stop...

    Could have gone either way but how things played out, it wasn't a terrible call IMO.

    Because Brewster said he should go for it.

    Good call by CPR...would have went for it if it were 4th and 1, but two is a bit much at that point.

    I agree with the decision. Too much time left.

    I respectfully disgree.

    Woody has a sure hand and playing with good ball security. Even if we fail to convert, why not risk it. The defense is causing enough turn overs for this Iowa State. The offense is playing scared. Come on Rhoads, play like last week.

    Didn't matter. ISU doesn't have the horses to run with OU yet.

    Had OU scored and blown the game open after that punt I could see some criticism, but the D held and forced a punt. It's a non issue.

    Different situation. Down by more points, later in the game. I can see your argument, but a case could be made for going for it or not going for it in both situations. I was kind of wishing we would have gone for it on 4th and 2, but whatever. I'm not going to sit back and nitpick every decision Rhoads makes. He knows what he's doing, and has more than earned our trust. Wasn't even that questionable of a call IMO.
    I think Rhoads plays to win, without playing stupid, to perfection. It's always seemed to me like there's a fine line between the two.

    Offensively. Defensively, we certainly do.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I agree with the call, offense was bad all game, defense was playing very good. Trust your defense, we did and stopped them but the offense just couldn't do much.
