Better Situation

Been at the armory waiting to turn in weapons ALL morning. Needless to say I'm bored out of my mind. So here's a hypothetical. 

Down 2 on our own 35 yard line. 2 minutes left in the game and the running game has been subpar all day. Joey Bauserbomb is your QB. 

OR

Up 4 and your opponent has the ball on your 40 yard line with 45 seconds left. You have last years secondary minus Roby and CB. 

In which situation are you more comfortable with the teams chances?

I'll take the Roby-less defense and hope the DLine can get a sack-fumble

You really are bored, aren't you?

I don't think he is bored.  I think he is sick.   What kind of person thinks of this stuff.

Defense would make a play to seal the win.

Go Buckeyes Beat Michigan

Good ole lazy ass armors! They are probably in there sleeping

Bauserbomb. You're already on the edge of field goal range. I'd rather rely on the kicker to make a 52-yarder than rely on last year's defense. 

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

 Our own 35 yard line means we are on our side of the field and thus way out of field goal range. We would have to gain at least 30 yards.

If Nuge is our kicker, I'll take the 82 yard attempt.

I'll take the defense and hope spence, bosa, and Bennett can make a big sack or force a fumble.

I hate you.  Either of these are no good.

Depends on who's playing. I would take option #2 though. #1 is a guaranteed 3 and out.

Roby-and-CB-less defense. Bauserbomb looked like he had a t-shirt gun aimed at the crowd everytime he dropped back to throw

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

I'd pack up and go home, wouldn't give them the satisfaction of beating me for a full 60

Roby less defense for sure.

If it's in the stadium, it's in his range.

The secondary for sure.  With Bauserman that ball is going out of bounds for sure. Or Bauserman and i run the ball anyway to get the decision to chuck out of his hands.  Better odds with the secondary !!!

I'd run draws with Maurice Wells and tear apart the defense with Bam Childress and Taurian Washington

Does anyone know if BucksFan changed his icon?

Secondary. Bauserman would've thrown it into the crowd on 4th down.

Down by four is laughable
