    Minnesota 1:23 left on the 20 going for 33 fg 2/10

    No time outs what idiots. They have no time outs left. Game over.

    Was the correct call.

    Take the pts of available. Needed onside regardless.

    They needed 2 scores anyway but I don't know why they didn't at least take a couple shots into the endzone. They kicked it on 1st down!

    In order to leave as much time as possible to get the TD.

    If they waste another 30 seconds and still get the FG, no TD, then they could be in trouble.

    No its NOT the correct call at all.

    You play to score the harder points. A minute :23 left. You go for the touchdown with in 20-40 seconds score then recover onside. March 15-20 yards and kick to tie.


    Horrible HORRIBLE coaching.

    You play to win the game. The probability of scoring the touchdown after onside is slim compared to when your on the 20.

    The second half line was 6.5 that kick covered. Must been ton on OSU.

    Either way bad bad coaching. Should be fired.

    I agree it was a STUPID call. That close to the End zone with that much time left WTF. I was confused at first why they were spiking it on 1ST down they had 3 shots into the End zone at that point the TD is harder to get then the FG . I can see if there was 30 Secs left but there was plenty of time from where they were to at least take 2 shots into the End Zone they would stull have had a good minute left .

    that was strange. at least try to score a td before kicking a fg. people saying that was the correct play are clueless especially having a kicker with a 50 yarder range.

    Well I disagree. There was still 1:25 left and a couple quick throws into the endzone doesn't take much time off. I can understand if there's like 30 seconds left.

    1:20 left inside the 30, 1 and 10, you spike the ball to kick a fg? get the fukkouttahere!!!

    i didn't have money on this game so i'm not biased like you minny backers.

    that's stupid fukking thing to do. like i said, minny has a kicker that can kick 50+ yard fgs.

    Dude, do you have an EST. 1986 tattoo? Maybe an ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME rocker on your chest? bc you're 15-25 IQ points away from a Special Needs Yard, imho. Although, your properly punctuated text suggests that you're not actually an idiot, but just the biggest hamburger on the board today. So, congratulations, I suppose.

    Its really a coaching preference like call...they were going to need sn onside either way. Its like in basketball whether a team fouls up 3 or not. Some coaches do it, others dont.

    3rd or 4th down yes, definitely, not from inside the 30 on 1 and 10.

    YEAH LETS FIRE THE COACH! Finally got a winning program and gave Ohio St. all it can handle....you need 2 scores and it doesn't matter. You're acting like a child because you lost your bet...what's going to happen when Kansas covers at TCU another bad bet......

    The probability of winning when you are down two scores is ZERO.

    You couldn't possibly be more wrong about this...you could try, but you would not be successful

    Right call if you had three timeouts.

    No timeouts.

    What's the probability of getting an onside?

    At most 15%?

    Please they were at the 17 yard line with 1:25 and kick a field goal. Lol.

    Horrible coaching.

    And no, I had osu -12. Didn't bother me they kicked the field goal.

    Here's what more than likely would have happened, they would have struggled trying to score a td, no timeouts, probably turned the ball over, time running out, IF they do punch it in, now youre looking at maybe 20 seconds. One of the reasons you kick it there is BECAUSE you have no timeouts. If they even score on the next play they still have to kick an onside kick, you make it seem like if they score a TD there they get the ball back or something, kicking the fg saves you time on something, the onside kick, which you HAVE to do anyway.

    You play to win.

    You're wrong. They try the 3 downs to score, if fail you kick. College football clocks stop at first down.

    The field position you go for score.

    lol obvious troll. with this attitude, why not just kneel down and run the clock out?

    so they can't score from 20 but they're gonna try to score from 50 after they get the ball back from an onside kick?

    why not just try to score and let's say they score and there's only 20-30 seconds left and they happened to get the ball back, they have a better chance of making a 50 yarder than trying to score a td after they get the ball back.

    like i said, if it were 3rd or 4th down, it's perfectly understandable. not when it's 1st and 10. but it all comes down to the coach not having confidence in his team. if he actually did have some confidence, he would go for the td in that situation.

    If they score a td, do they still not have to try the onside kick?

    They would have still had plenty of time after taking 3 shots at the end zone. They were on the 17 YD line NOT the 30 like some are saying .

    arguments saying you need to get the onside kick are moot. ofcourse you have to get it.

    need a td and fg from the 20yd and 50yd line. you try to get the td at the 20 and fg at the 50.

    you need 20yds for td and then 20yds for fg at the 30yd line. that means you need 40 yds of offense. if u kick the fg, you need 50yds of offense after onside kick. no timeouts only help this bc you need to go the least amt of yards possible.

    another thing that pisses me off is if a team is down 15 midway through the 4th quarter.

    get a td, then kick the extra point so they "can extend the game".

    you need a 2pt conversion anyway, you should go for it the first time so you can adjust play calling for the rest of the game if you dont get it.
