    an interesting thought

    since 2004, we are 1-5 in overtime games with a win over toledo and losses to nebraska(3ot),missouri x 2, with one of those losses costing us a big 12 north championship,kansas, cost us another big 12 north title,and most recently tonight,

    seeing this, why is it that we are so bad in overtime?, i mean 1-5, thats turrible(in a charles barkley voice).lol, but seriously is there a connection with this that we cannot win a freaking overtime game, we should just go for the 2 point conversion all the time,jk, any thoughts about this topic

    Doubt it can be attributed to anything more than either bad luck or a small sample size.

    Re: an interesting thought

    4 of the losses came in 04 and 05 when we were actually good, we shouldve won 11 games in 05, that was a very disapointing season

    Re: an interesting thought

    First, I question how good we were in '04 and '05.

    Second, this team shouldn't be compared to those teams - they're completely different teams in almost every way imaginable.

    Third, I think the overtime performance tonight is directly attributed to the youth of both the players and the coaching staff.

    But if you played a team even for 60 min., you would figure you have about a 50/50 chance to win.

    My theory would be that having a good red zone offense and kicking game are critical for winning ot games.

    We're bad in OT because we're Iowa State. It's who we are. Like Iowa growing corn or watching your lazy-boy turn into a Koala and run away while your high on PCP.

    The guy the TD pass was thrown on was a senior, so I don't see how that really played into it. I think we made a poor call on offense on the 2nd down QB draw and then Bell simply didn't make a good play on the ball on defense.

    Re: an interesting thought

    we were very good in 2005, we just made a couple mistakes that cost us big time with losses, we lost 3 ot games that year and a game that we should've won against tcu, but that dumb kicker of theirs made like a 55 yd fg and he was like a 40 or 50% kicker on the season

    Re: an interesting thought

    You can't compare overtimes in the past to tonight. They are completely different. Tonight I think I am one of the few people that was happy to at least see it go into OT. We were down 21 at half and took it to overtime. To win in overtime after coming back from that much down would have been flat out amazing.

    Re: an interesting thought

    well, the way i see it, you cannot compare regimes. as far as overtimes go, i think it is all about desire, with playcalling and tough breaks mixed in a little bit. in my short career as an athlete, i never lost anything in overtime, in wrestling or football, and i played my fair share of each. when you lose one overtime, maybe it is a bad bounce, but after a couple it seems like the other team wants it more.

    Ah, my bad, I thought he came here with just 2 to play.

    Regardless, he's not young at all.
