Missouri is 6-0 and trying to win the Big XII North for the first time ever (I believe
). Missouri is moving the ball pretty well against A&M but A&M is dominating time of possession by like 20 minutes, 33m to 13m.
Missouri has the ball 4th & Goal at the A&M five yard line and Missouri lines up for the field goal. It's a tough angle so they take the five-yard penalty and back it up to make the angle easier.
Then they FAKE IT and try to run it in! From five yards further out!
Are you kidding me? What kind of asinine call is that?
Gary Pinkel, you may recall, is the same idiot coach who pretty much ruined Brad Smith's college career by taking a Vince Young-type QB and trying to make him a pocket passer. It didn't work and Mizzou had a crappy season two years ago.
I ask you - why is this man coaching a major college program??
Mizzou might still win this game - they're only down six with about 11 minutes to play. But if the game comes down to where Missouri needs a TD to win, Pinkel should take a ton of heat for this boneheaded call.
