My thoughts about the game.
I stated in several posts that if can't stop their running game, it would be a close game.
However I did not think MU would lose.....esp playing at home.
Pinkel not going for it on 4th down set the tone of the game as his true conservative colors came out. I never did understand why he didn't go for it. At worst, we score nothing, and put them in the worst possible field position and make them go 99 yds for the score, which would have been more than kicking off to them and them returning it 20+ yds or so. Dumb decision.....you're at home.....crowd going nuts.....you go for it. Pinkel I would have thought at least, would have had more confidence in his Oline.
Just FYI, that wasn't a incomplete pass. It was a fumble. The guy was making a football move and the ball popped out.
But mostly, MU Dline couldnt stop the run, secondary couldnt cover.......they lost.
That being said I don't think OSU is the better team......they just were that night when it mattered. MU must win at TX to get back into the NC hunt.
