In this week's Sports Illustrated, a high school coach in Arkansas has taken the "go for it on 4th down" approach to an extreme. Statistics seem to be in his favor. I know Brian has addressed this subject in ealrlier posts. He argued persuasively to increase a team's tendency to go for it on 4th down. This high school coach, though, has taken it to a real extreme.
It is clear to me that we will be going for it on 4th down more often with Coach Rodriguez in charge instead of Coach Carr/Moeller/Schembechler. I wonder if Tressel will read this article. Too bad for him it came out after the USC game.
