    Why is it that we didn't kick the final PAT?

    I haven't seen an answer to this yet... just why didn't we kick for the PAT on that final score?

    Because that's what the rules say. If a TD is scored as the clock ticks to 0:00, the PAT is only attempted if it has an effect on the outcome of the game.

    I thought the refs just wanted to go home.

    After we had beat the spread for the second time, and they decided to just accept the fact that they had lost all the money they bet on the game, rather than call a second touchdown back on a phantom call, as not to expose themselves, I'm sure they just wanted to get the hell out of there...

    Maybe they bet on us and were afraid we'd go for 2, turn the ball over, and KSU would return it the length of the field to cover the 9.5 point spread. Better just to take their profit and go home.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    If they were betting on us, then A-Robs TD stands, and we don't outnumber them in penalties 10 to 1
