How did you folks feel about us not going for the first down at midfield


I love Houston but that was definitely a decision made to not get blown out. Personally, I don't care if we lose by 1 or 40 it's a loss. We were down 14 and had a chance there. . If we got 6 inches by Holton falling fwd we are in four down territory with 50 yds to go to cut it 7. I know Houston is old school and I love it but he was managing the final score at that point more than playing to win. Our defense had been manhandled in the 3rd quarter and we had to go for that.

PS. Before you bash, Houston is the right guy, I'm just curious as to how you honestly felt at that time. When I watched it over again on the TV the announcers were really surprised. Everyone in the stands too. I left after that to go back to Raleigh. If we werent rying to win anymore I was ready to go to sleep;)
