Stupid two point conversions (SimpLLLLLe Jim loves 'em!)

    It started with Kiffin at Hawaii Thursday night, continued with Vandy last night and Tulsa is putting on a clinic today. I figured there might as well be a thread for it because history suggests there will be plenty of stupid, unnecessary two point attempts that fail and ultimately bite a team in the ass this season.

    What is a stupid TPC? For starters, ANY in the first half. Period. Even the third quarter is highly questionable given the amount of time for things to happen. Go for two when you HAVE to go for two. Don't try to trick 'em in the first half; don't feel compelled to get back to the magical world of sevens and threes just for the sake of it (tear up "the card" already). Two pointers fail over half the time; extra points succeed over 95 % of the time. Take the point.

    Today, Tulsa trails ECU 38-35 with less than 10 minutes to play. The difference? THREE failed two pointers by Tulsa. It started when they scored a TD to go up 13-10 in the first half. Their coach had a "they'll never expect this" moment, went for two, and failed. That led to another attempt after going ahead 29-24 in the third quarter, and another failure. After regaining the lead early in the 4th, 35-31, he tried - and failed - again.

    Stupid. :shake:

    Chan Gailey did this one year vs UVa. Missed an xp, then tried about 3 2pts in a back and forth game. Good thing I wasn't on campus anymore or we'd have had a new coach a few years sooner.

    Completely agree.

    Amazing the stupidity shown by coaches that chase points that early on in the game. It just puts you behind the 8-ball.

    The rule I have is you never go for 2 until it is absolutely necessary, take the sure points until then. Going for 2 in the 1st half under any circumstances is just plain stupid.

    Reporter: why did you go for two points;
    Woody: Because they wouldn't let me go for three
    object lesson: when you are playing MICHIGAN ALL BETS ARE OFF.

    Woody was up 48-14 in the 4th quarter at the time. With all due respect, that's a pretty easy call. :wink2:

    Oh I agreed with Woody so much I applauded and yelled like crazy since I was there. With all due respect, what made it a pretty easy call was we were playing Michigan and wanted to run up the score.:biggrin:

    BB73 knows because he was at the game with a discount senior citizen ticket bitching about how young coaches like Woody always fucked up going for two.

    Virginia Tech makes the list by going for two up 27-26 over Boise with over 17 minutes left on the clock.

    FAIL

    totally negating the blocked PAT on the previous possesion. Just be happy they missed and move on. I can see Va TEch scoring to go up 8 instead of 9 and the Boise will have a shot to force OT.
