We took on all of their 4 & 5 * recruits with half of our team out leaving players that have played little and were for the most part not 4 or 5*. LSU “greats” are young but what the heck were The Razorbacks? Yet despite all of this, they had a real decent chance at winning the game. they had a FG shot to tie it with 1 min. left.
To me, that shows a lot and makes me feel very good about the future with this staff. I don’t know just how Sam is doing it, but I am so impressed.
Colorado, it wont even be close when we have a few more recruits (especially O-line huh)
Absolutely. I feel great about the future.
Another good thing about this game was the pain of losing. That’s ironic, I know, but the last two years I didn’t even get upset when we lost. I just accepted it as normal. Now that a loss is so painful, it tells me I care again & that the Hogs are relevant again.
I started a line about that very thing yesterday. It hurt again. I understood, but it still hurt.
We had a chance to win and chose to try a field goal. We should have gone for it on 4th down. What did we have to lose? We are 3-5 and staring 3-7 or 4-6 in the face.
i didn’t like the call, but let’s not act like it was a dumb call. We hadn’t converted a 3rd down all day. The field was wet. Making the 3+ yards on 4th was hardly a given & even if we’d made it, we still were not in the red zone. A made FG would’ve given us a chance in OT.
What did we have to lose? The game. Yes, we lost anyway, but we only know that because that’s what happened. Go for it & not make it, we’d be screaming about not taking the FG. Had we made the FG & won in OT, we’d have been glad he didn’t take the gamble by going for it.
We’re all batting 1.000 on our second guesses.
Except for the FG bad decision comment, I totally agree. Go Hogs!
