    Why not go for 2?

    Why not go for 2? If you gto for 2 the game rests entirely in YOUR hands! Its YOUR offense! our defense was a joke against K-State! leave it up to the Offense! Let the chips fall wear they may! Besides, ISU's kicking woes are NOTORIOUS the last 10 years or better!

    Re: Why not gor for 2?

    He was 45 of 45 going into that blocked kick.
    If we went for 2 and failed, could you imagine the meltdown????
    This is a mute topic and will get nowhere.

    Because we would not have converted and you would have had to post a thread titled "Why not gor for 1?"

    Because 99/100 you make that PAT and ISU had the momentum.

    Re: Why not gor for 2?

    why is taking your chances at OT better than taking your chances at a 2 point conversion?

    Re: Why not gor for 2?

    I don't think you should ever go for 2 at the end unless you are a major underdog and think it is your best shot. It either ends up great or horribly wrong.

    Re: Why not gor for 2?

    Going for 2 you only get 1 play to score, if you go to OT barring any major setbacks you get more chances to score, though I am sure you knew that.....Easy call, not one that should be debated in a conference game or unless like the poster above said, you are a big underdog.

    Re: Why not gor for 2?

    I made a sarcastic post in the Game thread at the time saying "go for 2".

    The right decision was made.
    We should be discussing OT strategies...not this.

    Re: Why not gor for 2?

    The 2007 NCAA average for two point conversions was .421. Is Iowa State's offense in it's current state, and without A-Rob, able to beat that percentage? Probably not. I'd rather go into OT with a far superior kicker. Our chance of winning would be better than .421.

    Re: Why not gor for 2?

    First off, the defense did not play bad. They had a couple of short fields and had problems at the beginning adjusting to a new QB. Second, you are not the coach, thank GOD.
