Two things tonight prompt the question.
1) Punting on 4th and 2 from the 50. If I were coaching football, 4th and 2 from the 50 would be 4-down territory, all day/night. And that would be a philosophical decision, not ad hoc. We would say that from day 1 of spring training, we would practice that way, and we would play that way. That would just be part of our overall approach. I would not be like that HS coach in Arkansas who never punted, I'd pretty much always punt on 4th and long from backed up in our own end. But I'd go for it a lot more than most, and our team would understand that a) our offense was expected to pick up the first, and 2) if they didn't, then our defense was expected to get a turnover or a 3-and-out.
2) Going 3 plays for -1 yard when recovering a fumble inside the other team's 10 yard line. That's when you have to go for the jugular. Run for a loss of 1 and two incomplete passes isn't getting it done. That needs to be a TD every time.

Rice just seems way too timid/passive in two situations where I would favor maximum aggressive.

Good points about punting from midfield. Exactly the opposite of App State’s philosophy.

I think we lost 3 yards on 3rd down so was it maybe 4th and 5? Game tracker actually says it was 4th and 20 due to 15 yard dead ball penalty. Maybe that is wrong?

Pretty sure 4th and 5

Interesting. Thought the broadcast said 4th and 2. I'll withdraw my criticism, then (though I still would've gone for it).

4th and 5, I might reconsider as well, although somewhere around 4th and 4 would be my decision point. Either way, it is something that we would have decided on in spring and have practiced on it every day so that by game time it would be automatic.

From the written play-by-play on espn.com, it appears to have been 4th and 20, with a 15-yard penalty thrown in there. I would punt in that situation.

I think it was actually 4th and 20 after the dead ball penalty on 1st down made it 1st and 25. Announcer has made multiple errors on down and distance tonight.

Rice gives Cowboys new life after incomplete pass on 3rd down with roughing the passer call. Grrr!

Another dumb penalty. But did like McMahon’s CC impression on the TD run.

Probably Bloomgren’s fault.

Snap goes past QB. Owls recover at the 20.

McNeese is not, ummm, impressive.

Point spread was 7. Announcer said last Rice punt return for TD was in 1997. Anyone know when last kickoff return was?
