re: confused...why didn't kiffin kick the FG with 3 mins left?(Posted by Mephistopheles on 11/24/12 at 10:49 pm to tigersbh)
Do you want a 99.9% shot to kick from 2 yards and a 5% drive down the field to the endzone, or a 50% chance to score a TD and 40% chance to get a fg kick from 40 yards (which works about 70% of the time). Not saying those are the correct numbers, but if I'm right it's 5% vs 14%
That's the logic.
The problem was running multiple times down two scores late in the 4th.
