    Admit it, who was thinking that we should've went for the field goal and grabbed the three points instead of going for it? I know I thought so, but that's why I'm glad I'm not the Coach.

    I had a feeling if we ended that drive tied with a couple minutes to play, we were going to lose.

    I was literally sitting there screaming "Go for it!" thinking about the multi-overtime gamble he made at Ok. State a few years ago when he went for two instead of forcing another overtime by going for the tie.

    I thought we shoulda went for the points when down 10, it is generally the smart thing to do. But you have to factor in the situation of the game and Les made a great call. thats why he makes the big bucks

    I admit it. I say you go for 3, and tie the game at home and win in OT. If we don't convert, it is almost impossible to come back . The odds were not with us, but coach flat out knew that their defense was worn down. Add to that 2 missed field goals and the coach's decision made sense. But it took a huge amount of [email protected]

    I never questioned the calls for one second....if we wouldnt have converted, then hell, we gave it our best shot! Gotta take chances to keep that #1 slot.

    I was glad they went for it; bet they challenged and fired up the offense to make the critical play. The calculated risk was reasonable as the Tigers have to play for the win; the Gators just have a too dangerous and explosive offense to toy with.
