I certainly haven't forgotten that. One of the greatest plays i've ever seen, no doubt about it. But the comparison is apples and oranges.
The big difference between this play and that one was the amount of time left. If we turn the ball over in that LSU game, they have to scoop and score on a fumble or return a pick for a TD because there's no time left on the clock after that play. Your risks are a lot less doing that with 6 seconds on the clock than they are with 1:30+.
It could also be that Petrino knew that K-State was a joke and there was no way in the world they could beat us. But stranger things have happened. If that had turned the game around and they had somehow gone on to beat us, every last person on here would be singing a different tune.
Like I said, I'm not criticizing. I didn't agree with it because I do think it was a little too agressive considering the score, where we were on the field, the flow of the game, and that we were far from hitting on all cylinders, but Petrino certainly gets a pass. Again, just simply questioning a decision doesn't mean one thinks the guy's an idiot. Just a different philosophy.
True, a different philosophy, and probably the one most coaches would have followed. I agreed with Pretrino's more aggressive one because KSU was going to get the ball back after the half. We score again and they go into the half with their will crushed. Now we know that didn't happen but Petrino has shown being aggressive for him usually either works or when it doesn't the Team rallys through the course of the game and we still end up winning.
Now, if this were the prior regime pulling that stunt, I would have gotten my ginsu collection ready because some tires would have been slashed.
