Yeah, I knew why he made the choice, but you gotta admit, it was a pretty bizarre play. And yeah, it almost paid off, big-time. But didn’t it seem at all odd to you how completely paranoid the team (and the coaching staff, even more) became about blocked punts, after that one got blocked? I mean, they’d lined up for that one blocked punt with enough space between players to drive a Mack truck through; it was little wonder OU got through the line. The nervousness about the punts that followed didn’t quite seem as warranted to me as the response suggested.
But then, what do I know? Nobody’s paying me $2,200,001 a year.
