And then, in the same quarter, on 4th and 2 on the Akron 34, they elect to punt?? Instead of trying a FG??

Cost them the game right there....

The wind was a real factor in the game. 20+ mph gusts and WMU was facing into it in the 3rd quarter.

maybe not a fg situation but punting inside the 40 is deadly. the analytics are overwhelming. 4th and short on the opponent's side of the field you must go for it. inside the 40 and punting on 4th and short dramatically lowers your chance of winning. see far more MAC coaches make this call than P5 guys.

another thing that really bugs me is all the MAC coaches who punt or run the clock out around midfield right before halftime. the right call in that situation is almost always the hail mary. so much can go wrong with a punt and there is no positive outcome. send 3 guys deep, have 7 protect and heave it into the end zone. there's a decent chance of scoring and I've yet to see a team give up points throwing an end of half hail mary.
