and then your defense has to go back out

Sure. 

I mean, I've never heard that argument.  But sure.  Yeah. 

Also, don't drain that long 3 because then the other team gets to take the ball out of the net and *whammy* you're back on defense.

 

The horror.

people are really pissed he went down instead of scoring the TD?
we've reached the point where folks are just searching for reasons to be pissed at the players..
Glad to see you're happy with mediocrity. That's why we are in this fucking position.

There was literally nothing wrong with going down or scoring. He chose to go down. Only thing against scoring there is D has to go back out. I lean towards going down then victory formation but either way is fine.

no - not so much pissed at the player as much as the mindset instilled from the coaches.  The touchdown also ices the game.  Every offensive play should try to score unless it is a kneel down.  Offense should be thinking about scoring as many points as possible no matter what.

Touchdown is the fucking play there. Even after he goes down. You win the fucking game by scoring fucking touchdowns.

People should know this is a team of beta cucks. Look at last year how LSU straight up punked them before the game and they just stood there. It's a reflection on the coach. We don't have killers, we have guys who lay down scared.

Yep your attitude of just win by 1 is why our beta team gets their asses kicked on the regular. You score there and tell them to gonfuck themselves

Agree.  We were up by 11, not 50.  You score the touchdown.  Example #453 of why Herman is not, and never will be, an elite coach.  Would Saban  have told his player to go down?

If naija had a better attitude we would be undefeated right now.

Some of y’all are going to pull a muscle with this stretch that that td meant a shit to anyone except you.

Going down means victory, no need for xp, no need for kick off, and no need to bring the D back out.

It was and is absolutely meaningless.

He did it because Aranda is his butt buddy.   Again, it was an 11-point game, not an overwhelming advantage against the Sisters of Charity.  You score the touchdown and set a tone for the team.

Todd Gurley did it in an NFL game when they were up by just 2 points.

Belichick has done it and has done the reverse (allowing a team to score so that he could get the ball back).

This is not one of those clear cut "pussy" or "dumb" decisions. It is for sure, not the emotionally satisfying move, but smarter football players and coaches than post here have done the same exact thing

Eh, the game was over either way.  By going down, Texas keeps the ball and goes into Victory formation.  Score = put the defense back out there and risk some freak injury to one of our players for no reason (recall our luck with injuries).

If it’s a one-score game, about to be two, I can see falling down to insure the other team doesn’t get the ball back with a chance to score and go onside. But that would’ve made it a three-score game. Score the fucking TD.

I have watched plenty of games where the winning team pads their stats for either recruiting or awards or just for shits and giggles. Sportsmanship...for fucks sake. We have wandered the got damn desert for 11 years now. Score every opportunity until you’re Clemson or bama...period.

No need to potentially see one of these guys made of glass get hurt on ST or D...

 

Would I like to see us run up the score on Baylor? Fuck yeah torch those hypocrites. Does that mean I think him not going for the TD was the wrong play? Fuck no. With our luck 2 more DBs would get hurt on Baylors passes at the end or depth gets fried by someone getting rolled up on the kickoff..

It's surprising how many people think he should have scored.  Not scoring was 100% the correct football play.  It guaranteed victory.  See Tech game.  If that RB sits down at the goal line after his long run, instead of scoring, they win.  See Penn State-Indiana today.  Running out the clock TO END THE GAME > adding points to the scoreboard and giving the opponent the ball back.  Cade Brewer knew this.  Did Mensa Tom is the real question.

It's more concerning that we had just an 11 point lead against a shitty Baylor team and have to argue which was a better way to ice the game.

Ones bitching about not scoring would have had a seizure if bears scored on kickoff and lined up for onside kick. 
 

1 play gets 100% winning and other gets 99.8%. 
Maybe math majors can help us figure out the best one.

This. People talk about setting the tone, attitude, and all the other gimmicky emotional bullshit. Beating Baylor by 18 vs by 11 doesn’t change jack fucking shit. We still are who we are. We’re not intimidating or impressing anyone by running it up on this Baylor team. Take care of business against the other teams on the schedule, and none of this bullshit matters.
