Going for the win on 2 pt conversion
General thoughts? I saw a lot of support for Pittmans decision yesterday based on his defense not stopping the Rebs. I've personally always hated when coaches do it.

To me it seems like a poor decision to stake your fate to the outcome of 1 final play vs spreading the probabilities over a series of plays. Maybe Corral throws a pick or there's a fumble, a missed FG. Idk I'm always of the mind to take the tie and take your chances with new life in OT.

They had all the momentum so it was the right decision. Terrible play call though

In that game, you want the game decided with your offense on the field. Neither defense was stopping shit, it was just a bad play.

I'm okay with it. Didn't necessarily like the play call, but I can't criticize him for the decision to try and win it there.

The strength of OM is their offense, their defense is suspect af and you have the ball with a chance to win it right there instead of a shootout with one of the best offenses in CFB.

I didnt mind the call at all of going for the win

I believe in a game like that game then going for it was the best option. The play call was the problem. The OC outcoached himself on that one.

Pittman outsmarted himself.

the ole miss DB held Burks on the play or you'd have seen an easy conversion. should have been a penalty.

There were several plays where your left guard held Chance Campbell on that last drive. So it’s a wash

Loved the decision, didn't like the play. Would go for it every time in that situation.

I would have stacked one side and had KJ naked bootleg run it in opposite. Force them to make a tackle on the goal line, not break up a pass.

On the road. You have a chance to win the game against ole miss and you can decide to

1. trade plays and scores to see who has the more potent offense

or

2.try to get 3 yards on their defense.

Pretty easy choice.

What is the percentage of making 2pt conversions? It can't be high. Everyone always praises this as being bold, and it is, but I think there's a better chance Arkansas wins in OT.

Ole Miss won the game but Ole Miss is not the better team. I have no issue with going for it. Just don't understand why teams feel like they can't get two yards on the ground when they need it.

The choice to go for it was right. Passing instead of running was full retard.

definitely. They were at home.

Play that in Fayetteville and it's a double digit win (like last year).
Oh well. On to Auburn.

Only if we give you 8 turnovers and 2 defensive touchdowns again. Y’all act like we didn’t just gift wrap that game to y’all for some reason

If Arkansas was better, they would have won.
