The Pooch Kick Kills Another Team

In the Big 12 Championship, Nebraska handed Texas the game after gaining a 12-10 lead and less than 2 minutes to go. Again, a coach decides that the probability of a kickoff return TD was better than the probability that the opposing team could get in field goal range with a short field.

You have to kick the ball deep and hope to make a play. Holy crap. Even worse, the conservative kick hopped out of bounds and gave Texas the ball at the 40. Nuts.

Can this decade be more infuriating with wrong coaching decisions? Even worse, when you later hear the interviews and people talk about a never-give-up mentality in winning the game. Well, there's that, and then the realization you only had to go 35 yards to put yourself in position to win.

I really wanted this BCS picture to go crazy, almost as much as I wanted a Red Sox-Cubs World Series in 2003. And of course, am denied.

I want Cincy to play TCU, and the winner declare themselves national champions. Put up a banner and everything. Who could deny them?

I do think Cincy is a bit overrated because I think the Big East is god awful. Granted, not their fault necessarily; that's the conference they are in, but still they had 8 pretty easy games. And they proved against Pitt (Way overrated) that they had absolutely no defense. But I like Pike and I hope the coach is worth a damn since he will probably be next year's Notre Dame coach.
