    With previous coaches and teams that decision to pull kicking team and go for it would be a no brainier. But with our O-line play and this staff, we played right into ASU hands on that one. Plus next few series play calling was horrible by Tee.

    Make that field goal game is tied. We keep hopes alive to finish the game and win but this team can not finish.

    Oh Well .......... back to the honey do list.

    I was literally begging for the FG...I couldn't watch that 4th down attempt. Clay needed to run behind McKenzie. Jalen was kicking some serious ass out there!

    this isn't the first time going for it backfired. Y'all remember the 2017 Texas game. Rojo on 4th down at the Texas 1 or 2 and we were better off kicking the field goal given how that game transpired.

    You wonder how Helton still had a job. That’s was such a bad decision.

    You had idiots agreeing with the decision even though SC has shown the ability to get tough yards all season. To me that was Helton cracking under mounting pressure. He know’s it’s over.

    There's a difference between bold playcalling...and reckless playcalling. It's like he feels he has to show he can roll the dice.

    He has to be under tremendous pressure at this point, and I think it's affecting his decisions.

    I truly believe he changed the call based on the crowds reaction (booing) when he sent the FG team on the field. This is in essence the problem that Clay has- he's not sure of himself, doesn't know what he wants, and is influenced by other people's opinions. Nice guy though.
