Yeah I would have been going for it since the first one. That could come back to haunt them.
Exactly. If you go for it on the first one, you can go 2/3 on two-point plays and still tie the game (while also going 1/1 to tie it if you would have made it on the first attempt). Now, KSU HAS to go 1/1 on whichever time they attempt.
