    There is no excuse for calling an onside kick less than a minute to go down 16 points. Yeah, sure it's mathematically possible to win but GMAFB. He's lucky nobody got injured with that.

    He will use the following arguments:

    1. It is not my job to stop us

    2. There is time left so Im not quitting

    3. I am trying to instill energy

    4. The team will take on my personality

    5. Layla said she’d take me back

    Lane will always be Lane, a spoiled a$$hat who happens to be the lucky sperm tht should have remained in Monty’s left gonad. He will keep stumbling his way onto HC jobs.

    Disagree. You play hard for the entire 60 minutes. Do you stop trying at 1:10? 1:30? Two minutes, down 16 points? He’s not my cup of tea either but can’t fault him for trying to score and win.

    I know this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but you really ought to consider the risk versus the reward on a game that is all but out of reach.

    Its not about being out of reach, its about getting reps for your players. Practicing an OSK in a live game is invaluable. It may payoff when it is needed to win a game.

    Kiffin’s guys didn’t want to quit. I would hope CDM would do the same if the roles are ever reversed. Hope Knox spends some time on catching/covering on-side kicks next week.

    Hmmm . . . this seemed an obvious decision to me. Had he kicked it long, the Ole Miss faithful would have been much more disgruntled than any of us folk here on the 'Gas.

    No issue with the inside kick.
    Now, if I'm an Ole Miss fan, I'm probably questioning why the starting QB is in with less than a minute to go when you have NO CHANCE to win. It's game 1; have to think about the whole season.

    Meh.....I'd be more upset if their offense hadn't just rung up 600 yards of O and were tossing bombs like it was Tecmo.

    I am always OK with an onside there if if it is two scores or less. You are one bomb and another onside kick away. I think you have to try the onside there.

    Anything more than a 16 pt lead though and I agree.

    I enjoyed hearing their fans boo the rest of the game. All because their DL drove Trask into the game. It wasn't that he didn't really know the ball was gone, it's the fact that he DID IT against a defenseless player. Good call. They can't have it both ways. Same as they called on against our S Sean Davis. Davis didn't try to launch into the wr. I still think they ought to change that targeting rule to yardage penalty on the first offense, and a second offense by the same player he's tossed. It's such BS to throw a team's starting senior out of a game on the first series and change the theme of the game like that. With Davis in, I think they don't get more than 20 - 21 on us. They sure as heck don't make 4 or 5 big passes in this game.
