It was at this point when the kicker began to consider focusing on the business accounting program that his advisor was pushing for.

Ya know, you coulda used those three downs for short runs a few yards closer and to the middle of the field.

I believe he majored in communications.

Don't think I have ever seen a football bounce off both uprights and the horizontal bar twice before.

And I thought Iowa State's was bad.
Only a single donk.

But you could hear that ring out through out the entire stadium. It was loud on tv.

Quadruple doink?  Is this a Law & Order marathon?
 
2020-10-24 8:19:45 PM  
Is that a record for an NFL or pro game?
I sure as fark have never seen more than a double doink.
This is like... double that.
The double double.

That is a perfect example of why sports fans should reconsider their "greatest ever" stuff.

One inch is all it would have taken for that ball to doink over the crossbar on that last hit. One millimeter of a different trajectory coming off the kicker's foot.

It happens in every sport. There is a lot of skill involved. But not one of those skills involves a strong gust towards centerfield on a routine fly ball in baseball. Or a puck hitting a seam in the glass and landing in front of a forward who might have been just about to skate away from the crease, or a basketball that hits the rim and then bounces off the backboard and back to the rim and falls into the net.

All those things happen and decide games. Sure, "it all evens out in the end," right? But it doesn't. Those moments are random. I predict that AI will be able to quantify how many games were won or lost based on the frequency of these lucky occurrences.

Not in football, but I saw it in Pong once.

That should be worth at least one point.

Field goals could be more interesting if they make a doink worth 4 or 5 points.

And then the final play of game 4 of the world series happened...

The Pope of Manwich Village: More proof we live in the Matrix.


Thankfully, not programmed by Bethesda. The tight end would have ran 100 feet straight into the air, and the ball would have been locked into the character model for the place kicker. And for some reason the giant head of Madden would be half the skybox.

I had a bet of Rice -3. Always try to get some yardage there. Sheesh.

They should have a third vertical bar in the middle, between the uprights. Split the uprights is worth 3. Hit the bar and it's worth 5.

Only if you call it before the kick.

Twitter says they kneeled three times. That's the opposite of trying to gain yards.

Assuming accurate. I didn't see the game.

I cant believe I get to use this pic again.  3rd time so far in 2020.

Any college football coach who thinks he can rely on a 45 yard FG is a fool.
 
2020-10-25 9:04:14 AM  
The Kansas University football team can barely make enough yards to be in FG range, let alone kick one. They'd consider that a good drive.

I accidently clicked the link and the OP clarified in the comments that they ran twice for no gain and took a knee for a loss of three.  In the original he says "basically kneeled", so instead of truth, he went for drama.

Ahhhh. My bad. I rely on Original for truth and he's forsaken me yet again.

The O line should be running if they lost yards in that situation. That's not how you win the game.

I wow....I've never seen that before! I've seen once, sometimes twice, but hitting off the goal post FOUR TIMES and the kick is no good!?.....Awesome!

As a Rice alum, I have to say that this is essentially our entire football experience. Between regularly getting stomped by powerhouses for the nice payday to "YES!", "NO!", "MAYBE!", "#@$@!" is pretty much par for the course.

Why are you assuming a Fark headline is accurate? brand new here? I am assuming it was a joke. They gained nothing so it was just like taking three knees.
