It was his fault. There is no need to have low trajectory on an extra point. You kick it lower if kicking a 50 yarder, for the extra distance. Extra points, you don't line drive.I remember USC doing this when Lane Kiffin was coach. I think we’re fine with point afters. The one he missed against UNC was blocked, so I don’t think it’s entirely Bubba’s fault.
But the field goal uncertainty is real...
Would also be nice if they actually block for him. One kick was outright blocked because Donaldson let a player that probably weighed 50 lbs less than him blow right through him, and another was partially deflected because it was a bit low, and the entire blocking line got shoved back a couple yards.Not yet. If this continues on then yea. Weve played 2 games and both have been on the road. Give the guy a chance to settle in or you'll break him even more.
Yeah, this is why I really do not have a problem with any decision to go for it, especially around the 30 for longer field goals. I feel like we are essentially looking at a toss-up as to whether or not the FG is made. Obviously, your kicker being about 50/50 on any length FG is a big problem. It means that even when you "settle for a FG" you come away with nothing all too often.
I like it! We’d be Oregon in there prime when chip was there. They were the first university to really dive into the analytics of the game and the analytics say to go for it. Diaz fancies himself an analytics guy and we have a terrible kicker and special teams in general so I say go for it. It can’t get much worse then watching another blown chip shot or missed extra point. Bubba is done mentally like decals last year, you can see it in his eyes. Of course you should never offer a kicker a scholarship who you know, couldn’t make field goals in highschool for god sakes.
