    Help me out here

    OK, so I'm watching some of Purdue-Indiana. Purdue at this moment was driving, and up 55-10. They had 4th and 1 around Indiana's 20 yard line. Easy field goal territory.

    They go for it. The color commentator adds that he would find it more embarassing as an opponent to have them kick the field goal.

    I'm confused. How is it less embarassing to have your opponent go for it on 4th down instead of a field goal?

    FWIW, Purdue went on to score another touchdown on that drive, to go to 62-10.

    Make this one for the ages!
