old miss game
Where was our kicker for this game?? Our first field goal attempt was around 35 yards and he MISSED???? How on earth do you miss that??? In the final 3 minutes of the game, we scored a td to bring the score to 20 and 17. The on-side kick was recovered by old miss but we didn't let them gain any ground and they went for it on 4th and 1 and FAILED!!! Go defense!! We got the ball and moved it down to the 35 yard line and for some reason, wasted 9 seconds trying to decide what to do and then spiked the ball - wassup with that?? How can you afford to waste any amount of time when the BIGGEST game of the year is on the line and you have no timeouts!! Anyway, we didn't get a first down and had to attempt (note, I said attempt) another field goal. This one was a 51 yarder and again a MISS!!! It was long enough but it was to the left by a couple feet. So, what I want to know is, did the kicker ride the bus home or did he have to walk??? I'm not usually so down on my team but come on....a 35 yarder and you miss????? Sadly, those missed goals allowed the rebs to have the golden egg this year - it better come back home next year!!
