Muffed kick rule is one of the stupidest in the game as far as I'm concerned

ND defense doing it all. That's two TDs for the D, although one was tackled on the 2 and then punched in.

Was wondering if Carolina might go for two if they get the TD here, but there's too much time left?

Totally disagree. I was all in on going for it at midfield.
I'd have kicked it cause UNC had really outplayed them all day, but if you're going to go for it, the play call after the timeout was an abomination.

The play call sucked, but agree with the decision to go. I don’t think they win by trading possessions in OT.

Clemson had two timeouts, over a minute left, and only needed a FG to win it anyway. I'd have kicked the PAT and tried to get a stop.
Yeah it's not like getting 2 guarantees the win. In fact it might make a loss more possible - if it was tied Clemson might have been fine going to OT.

It looked like Crawford was hurt on the play before the Clemson TD. He’s by far their best lineman, if he was done for the game the decision is even easier.

Arkansas State WR, Omar Bayless has 8 catches, 198 yards and a td at halftime. Considering it's tied 31-31 at the half, they aren't going to stop throwing any time soon.

Between ESPN and ABC this might be one of the shittiest nights of football ever. 3 games on TV, current scores as we sit middle to late 3rd quarter

Auburn up 49-9
UCF up 56-7 (and it was 42 - 0 early in the second quarter)
Ohio St up 41-0

Maybe the Auburn game is more lopsided than expected, but the other two were sure to be complete blowouts when the schedule was announced and still they decided to put them as Prime time games

What games would you have chosen in their place? It was a pretty poor schedule this week - and there's no way anyone could have predicted that Clemson-UNC would be close, so you can't just put that in prime time with 20/20 hindsight.
