Are We Afraid to Attempt a FG Now?
« on: October 01, 2017, 08:32:56 pm »

Looked that way yesterday.  How much do we have to pay to hire a coach who can put a kicking game together, 8 million?  10?  4 is clearly not enough...

Converted two out of three 4th downs, with the 2 successful attempts resulting in drives that scored touchdowns, per article today.  We pay for analytics reports to help make those decisions. 

Not the answer you wanted but continue on.....

How much are we paying some con man to tell us not to attempt a FG?  LOL  Who is paying MONEY to be told that the Hogs should just go for it on 4th down?   lmao

Yes we are afraid after TCU. This game I agreed with how we handled the fourth down situations.

If you can't kick a FG with regularity, you can't win with any regularity.

Not disagreeing with u but the opportunity to kick one in a real game would have been nice. Should have attempted one in the last 4th down we went for. Now if one is missed in a crucial situation, it's gonna be because of "inexperience"

Maybe he was just trying to get the offense to push through some of the issues it's been having.  And why don't you say "our" instead of "your"... hmmmm

Or he isn't afraid that a sun belt team will stop him....

Btw I do not want to ever attempt another fg in the Bert era. So I'm happy with the 4th down calls.

It would have been nice to let the guy try one in a less pressure situation with a comfortable lead. Hopefully it won't come back to bite us in the rear end if we ever need a game winning attempt.

To his credit he did say we would have to go for it on 4th down from now on.

Zero doubt in my mind kicking a fg is the last thing he wants to do. You gotta believe Bielema was sweating that game Saturday big time. He danced in the locker room over the victory of a sun belt team. Losing that game would've 100% sealed his fate as our coach.

Doubtful he wanted to take a chance on the fg. We needed to win the game, not practice field goals. Essentially, you are right...without doubt he isn't racing to kick field goals right now. All of our special teams have been overall awful during his time here.

But context of Saturday was that we needed to win...we needed points to do so. Possible kicking situation percentages dwarfed percentages of converting 4th downs. He probably made the right decision.

Generally speaking, unless our offense is facing fourth and long from 10 yards or more outside The Red Zone, I'm not a big fan of field goals.  They can become a "crutch" that is resorted to all too often by an offense that can become used to settling for 3 points instead of going for 7.  I don't like to see evidence of a habitual "settling for 3 points" offensive mindset.  That's just me.
