Well the offense and the defense had let us down several times this season, so I guess it was the special team’s turn.
Two missed field goals, both inside 35 yards and one inside 20 yards. Hard to believe that Michael Hunnicutt would have missed one of those, let alone both. Throw in a blocked extra point (not his fault) and you leave seven easy points on the field.
More than enough to turn a one-point loss into a hard fought win. And this isn’t even mentioning Knight’s terrible decision on the pick six. Four plays. Effectively handing Kansas State 14 points and the win. You gift wrap Bill Snyder 14 points and you’re done. Don’t care who you are.
Now I say this loss was on the special teams, but in reality everyone had a hand in it. The aforementioned Knight pick six at the goal line. And don’t pin that one all on Knight. What the hell kind of play call was that in the shadow of your own goal line?
