Watching the development of Gibbons - in my estimation - has been one of the feel-good stories to come out of these first seasons under Brady Hoke. Brendan made about a 12% improvement in accuracy from 2011 to last year. He's 4-5 this year, but the season still fairly young yet.

Not buying it, the defense won that game, Gibbons just gave us the lead.  If we win 3-0 and Gibbons kicks the field goal in the first quarter is it still a "Game Winning" field goal?

I would say it is - just like a game winning hit or RBI in baseball doesn't always come in the bottom of the 9th, or  GW goal in hockey isn't required to come in the last five minutes of the period. I see what you're saying - if it's not racked with the pressure that comes late in the fourth quarter it's a different situation. But if he scores the last points and they are the difference in the game, I'm okay with it being called a game winner.

Hard stat to really track since at what time would it go into effect.  My feeling is a game winning FG is a kick that ends the game.  But, if you go by any FG that is the final scoring play of the game, that results in a win, is technically a game winning FG.  Just not what I think of when I think of game winning FG.

In regards to kicking a FG in the first quarter and winning 3-0, yes, that does count.

And she had better appreciate it. I also have a collection of Gustave Ferbert tatoos.
 
BTW Coach Ferbert went 10-0 in his first season, winning the B1G, then departed the University after his second season to prospect gold in Alaska. He struck paydirt and retired a wealthy man. (That is my retirement plan as well.)
 
Con muy Gustave!

The airplane had just been invented. Coach Ferbert was consumed by a his vision for skywriting and the impact that could bring to the the athletic department. Alas, nobody else at the University could be made to understand the sheer power that skywriting over opponents' campuses could have, and Gustave never lived to witness a skywriting in his lifetime. It befell one David Brandon more than a century later to fulfill the futuristic vision of Gustave Ferbert.
