    So, if we attempt the TD and don't make it and ND wins by a FG, you would've been on here giving o credit for making the tight call but losing? That's some funny shit right there...
    I can almost guarantee that you and most of the forum members would've been bitching about how we didn't get the sure points and let our d win it by forcing nd to drive the length of the field (73yds with 2 min left) to win the game...

    Wrong. It's the right decision win or lose. Just learn from it and move forward. A winning program plays to win there.

    As I said 100 of 100x.

    I was at the game. It was cold, and wet, and Canada’s offense all year struggled inside the 10. I didn’t think he played scared as much as he was trying to play smart. Heck, with the wind and rain, I thought we might miss the FG. I think he had more faith in Aranda’s D than he did Canada’s O. If Ensminger was OC, I’d bet he’d have made a different decision. We’ll see this year if you’re right in similar scenarios.

    Yeah, I vowed not to attend LSU or Saints game after the LSU/ND game preceded by NO/TB the day before. I attended both, and we lost both after leading with less than 2 min. left. Sucked. The only thing worse was the Saints/Minn game as you’ve alluded to.

    tirk's football background comes from years of playing.

    One of these, that is.

    Hopefully with Ensmingers offense given the same scenario we punch that it on 3rd down from the 3.

    It was a damned if he did damned if he didn’t situation on going for the FG on the 1. I could see a lot of backlash going his way if we fail on 4th and give up the FG with time expiring.

    But, no one thought ND was going to score on a 55 yard play (which puts more on Aranda).

    However, in my opinion.....it was a rainy bowl game tied at 14 with 2 minutes left.....Feed your RB go for the throat and try an punch it in.

    I had one too. The players had little magnets on the bottom and moved totally randomly.

    While you bullshitting, I loved that game... We painted the teams to match our favorites then used the number stickers for the jerseys... Brings back memories.. .
