Worst playcall?

So all night long the Irish kicker is dropping kickoffs consistently at the goal line or the one, forcing us to return the ball, usually not beyond the 25. Why, on their final kickoff, the only one that really mattered, did they kick it into the endzone? Yeah maybe starting on the 20 put us a little further away from the endzone but they took no time off the clock! This was THE key to winning the game. If we return the kickoff, at least 6 seconds run off, maybe 8 and we have, at best, a chance for a field goal (if everything stayed the same) with a questionable kicker. I can't understand this. Please explain.

Just in terms of the kickoff I know its actually a terrible idea but there was a part of me that wanted denard back there to return the kick. I was sure a good kick return was our only shot and in a one time think I think denard would be a great kick returner (its honestly how I see him making an nfl squad)
