    Onside kick...

    Where it all went wrong today is when we tried the onside kick.... I understand trying to catch Iowa off guard but that was totally uncalled for.

    On top of that Banks did not need to be selfish and get the personal foul..... He was getting worked and got ******.....

    Why don't we just play hard hitting football instead of doing things to catch opponents off guard?

    Bull. I think it was a decent move. Up until then the defense was playing very well. And it was totally unexpected. We simply do not execute the play legally and getting the ball. It was kicked well.

    Our issues were being inept on offense and making stupid turnovers/penalties.

    ...I bet the same people whining about this were the same ones who said that Mac and Chizik were too conservative. The following personal foul was a bigger change in momentum.

    Re: Onside kick...

    I really liked the play call. We were playing against a better team. Try to make something happen. Not like it cost us the game.

    I like the try for an onside. Probably the only play call I liked all day actually.

    Re: Onside kick...

    So what i am getting at is if the defense was playing fairly well why not kick it deep and make them go 70-80-90 yards instead of 40-50 yards? The risk at that point is not worth the reward at that point IMHO. After Iowa got the ball after the onside kick it was mostly all downhill from there.

    It was dumb and turned the momentum of the game. That is all

    Re: Onside kick...

    Wouldn't have made a difference. Even if we had recovered the on side kick, with the sort of day we were having, we would throw an interception on the very next play.
