Just a quick survey.
Cal just scored a TD at 1:05 AM EST to make it an 8-point game and they went for two to make it a 7-point game. There are 10:53 seconds left in the fourth quarter. They gambled, got the conversion, and it obviously paid off. Just curious what others think. I believe you only go for two when you HAVE to do so. Cal didn't HAVE to go for two, but they did and like I said, it obviously paid off, but if you miss that, you're in the mindset of, "Shit, we still have to score two more times to win this game" where if you take the extra point to keep it an 8-point game, the morale on the team is still good and everyone is thinking "OK, we still only need a TD, but of course we need a 2-point conversion." I have heard Brian on WTKA talk about this and it seems he is in favor of going for two as soon as possible, but I disagree. What does everyone else think?
