Which is kind of like being the sleaziest lobbyist on K street.

Situation: Georgia needs a FG to win in OT, starting from the 25 first and ten. First down: two yard rush. Second down: QB centers the ball, losing three yards in the process. Third down: 43-yard FG attempt by a kicker who was 6-16 on kicks of 40 yards or more.

Update: And while I’m ranting, Meathead Bielema punts on fourth and five from the Oregon 37, because “field position” is so crucial in a game where it makes the difference between a 91-yard TD run and an 80-yarder.

Update #2: OK to be fair going for it on fourth and one from the OU 17 was the right move.

UPDATE [SL]:  Even though it devastates my once-decent chances of winning the LGM pool, part of me is still happy that this Hall of Fame-caliber example of irrationally playing not to lose cost his team the game.
