    It was actually a start at the 20. The way EWU sliced and diced the Bison D on that drive it may not have made any difference if they started at the 5.

    Thank you for the correction. I believe they would have tried running out but I do remember two plays earlier this year where I was waiting for a safety and all I got was the other team getting a big play or scoring on the next play.

    Sad really.

    Don't get me wrong. I am certainly not saying that going for the 1st down would have been a bad decision. I'm just saying that it is my opinion that kicking was MORE advantageous. Didn't work out. Won't ever know if the other call would have worked out or not.

    Now.....they did take the ball 80 yards on 4 plays immediately after the miss. Could they have covered 94 yards that quickly or close to it? (hypothetically assuming that they stuffed the 4th down play) Maybe.....again.....we'll never know. One of the many beautiful things about football.

    FG attempt was the right decision every time in that situation. Let's say they did go for it and turned over on downs. EWU's play selection would probably been different from the five. They might have still sliced up the defense, but I think it would have chewed up some time getting it out from so deep.

    Either decision is fine in that situation. One thing to consider, Cam is a senior and Coach K probably wanted the seniors to have their shot in the game.

    Quoted for truth. Unbelievable how our D ends were getting mugged all game and no flags were thrown.

    I would have been fine with either 4th down call. I can see the advantage of going for it and trying to run down more time. However, the FG is a high probability from that distance and a made FG makes it a 3 score game. I was happy with the decision either way, because both choices were logical. I just got annoyed by those who considered the FG choice to be bad coaching. Bad coaching doesn't net you 7 championships in 8 years. It also was a logical and smart coaching decision.

    I don't have a problem with the FG. And as far as starting from the 5, only the shadow knows if it would have made any difference.

    I love irony. Visit the EWU fan board and they complain about the NDSU holding and the refs looking the other way. In addition, they were sloppy, didn't play their best and even used the "shooting ourselves in the foot" reference. Even the poor coaching decision for the 3rd string QB getting into the game. Did I mention I love irony?

    Iím hoping to see some gold in the crowd of the Cowboys/Seahawks game. Any Bison fans there?
