Ever think if they were down by 1 instead of 4 they might have approached the final drive differently needing only a field goal to win. Do not claim it had nothing to do with it.....it may or may not have but we will never know because they didn't attempt it (Hell dont even know if they would make it, he missed a friggin extra point)
So, you are saying that if UM takes the FG (and, under your view, no one knows if the FG would have been made, or whether it might have been blocked and returned for a TD), then UM doesn't give up a punt return, doesn't fumble a pass, and no. 5 doesn't make several great plays?
Okay, I get it. Ha.
I still say my analysis is the more likely one. But, you are right, if the team bus had shown up 5 minutes later to the stadium, or parked in a different spot, everything might have been different, and no one can know what would have happened or whether UM would have won or lost.
I think you are on to something with the bus....
My point is we really can't be sure. Personally I would have tried to get bv the 3, had a lead on the road at that time, defense was playing very well at that time and the "must get one yard" offense has not been working well this year with that line. My second choice would have been going for it but giving Sneed a run/pass option since that oline cant knock anyone off the ball. No way on Earth would I run straight line Eastwood into the middle of that line it was doomed (that is on Rosy). Still cant figure out why we moved 2 linebackers to fullback if never going to use it, but that is off topic.
