ZERO 4th qtr points in last 3 games.

Post by aggiesdotcom » November 5th, 2018, 7:53 am

And we're still averaging 47 ppg in those 3. That is the definition of a dominant team, one that only needs to play 3 quarters to still win and win big.

Best Aggie team ever! Now just take it one game at a time. So glad we had that hiccup at Wyoming. I think that has really helped us to maintain our Focus. Go Aggies sellout Maverik!

most teams we play should just call the game after the 3rd quarter, save us all some time. It's embarrassing to see these guys finally score a few td's and then do stupid things like go for two or do an onside kick. Honestly if I was coaching and a team did that to me after letting off the gas, I'd send the starters back out to inflict some pain. I'm a jerk that way :joking:

That onside kick was bad.

The team has an established history of only playing three quarters. The difference is that this season the team only needs to play three to win instead of the playing it close for three and then losing in the fourth.

In the past (particularly the 3-9 season) this has often been true (unfortunately).

I LOVE this change from losing close games to blowing out everyone. No reason to look for close wins. Just blow em all out. Honestly, I am glad that we still pulled out the Wyoming win.

pilotaggie, I think the onsides kick was meant to bounce off of the opposing player and then get recovered by Hawaii. Mezemheimer did a great job in fielding the ball.

That read poorly. I actually like the attempt as far as execution. I just didn't like the play call at that point in the game.

I don't know how I would pick if Floppy Hat were to put a line of 0.5 points scored in the 4th quarter for USU vs San Jose State. probably take the over.

We've really only needed one quarter to win the game by a decent margin...
