Default college Football Head Coaching question...you make the call

Ok, this is a hypothetical hasnt happened yet but it could, you make the call. You are Rich Rodriquez HCof WVU. Your team trails by 7 late in the 4th quarter adn with less than 1 minute left you score a TD aganist #1 Miami at home. Do you kick the Extra ppoint and play for a tie and overtime or do you go for 2?

Go for the 2...........this is the supposed best team in the nation.....when would you get another chance to get 2.5 yards to pretty much seal a victory?

Extra point. Today I think they are able to move the ball and would be able to in overtime.

I would absolutely go for 2. You know Miami is the better team and if someone would have told you thatyou would be able to run one play v. Miami at home from the 3 to win it, 99.9% of the HC's out there would take it.

MJH, SAM I AM, I agree with both you guys.................

It's the same theory of why New England went for the win against St Louis, instead of playing for a sure OT.

I dont think the risk is that big at all, WVU wasnt even supposed to be close to Miami, if they win they reap the rewards, if they lsoe they probably still go up in ranking!

I think this would be obvious to go for 2!! I guess i would have to be in the situation to make the call but here i would probably go for 2!!

the reward is not just "bigger"

its ASTRONOMICALLY BIGGER

I'd like to say I'd go for it...but I'd probably kick it [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif[/img]

It is very difficult to do when your job is on the line and the "book" says kick it. If you win your a hero, if you lose you are a goat

Go for 2.

Your players will love you for it, win or lose. Little downside to going for the big win, and a lot of upside.
