Colorado went for 2pts at the end of the first half and failed. Am I wrong in thinking any coach that goes for two in the first half is stupid. I think you should only in the last half or the 4th Quarter. I can only remember it comming back to haunt you if it failes, and the times anyone did convert, the ended up where they would have won anyway at the end. Am I wrong in thinking Colorado was stupid!!!

L'Ville and UC both went for two in the early game.

In my opinion, if the chances of you making it is greater than 50%, you go for it. If it is less, you don't.

Since the Cincy game was 43-40, the offenses clearly ruled - and the chances of success was probably greater than 50% - and combined, the two teams went 3 for 3 on two-pointers.

In the Nebraska game, I was not watching, so I do not know what the probability of success was.

colorado just had 2 possesions in nebraska territory and botched both....then they punt from the nebraska 39 for 5 yards?....must have been blocked...this team is doing their best to keep nebraska close...that`s a very bad sign.....very much the sign of bad teams that don`t know how to win....barnett is no genius...
