Just off the top of my head: Make the chipshot against UM and we win. Chip shot against NW and it goes at least into OT. Of course there are plenty of people to blame, but his failures lead to 3 points left on the field and it happened just about every game. I can see missing a 40+ yd FG but he was missing chipshots regularly in important situations and with this offense it was devastating.
I agree with all of this with one caveat: you've heard of the chaos theory? It sucks leaving points on the field, however if he makes those field goals, that doesn't mean the game plays out exactly the same. Play calling would be different, coaches make different choices. The games unfold differently. That said, I'd sure like to see how it would have changed things. Couldn't be for the worse. However, unless it's a last second miss, there are too many other factors that go into a loss.
He will go down as one of the all time great Spartans? That statement takes a hot steamy dump on all of the actually great Spartans. Holy shit, that might be the dumbest thing on this board.
I expect to make every putt & hit every fairway. But guess what? I don't. Because I'm just not very good. Like Conroy. You don't win games based on expectations. You lose/win games on results.
Professional golfers don't make every putt but they have hundreds & hundreds of putts a season. Also, putting isn't the only responsibility they have. Awful analogy.
Thank you for REGRESSING.
The MSU facebook post congratulating him for his 'PAT streak' pissed me off to no end.
Is he like ~60% since nailing his first 15 his soph year?
This is AT LEAST 2 games we've lost by 3 or less that he's missed a FG in this year.
Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
John L was a kicker away from the rose bowl.
You're definitely right.
It would have been interesting to see what may have happened had Conroy made the field goal right before half against ND.
Same thing here against Northwestern and Michigan. Hell we might as well throw his Nebraska miss in there as well.
Is there a way you can leave this board forever and never return?
That's my wish and it can't happen soon enough.
Conroy is largely to blame but we do have the worst long snapper I have ever seen in my life so it might not be entirely his fault. Mostly his fault, but not entirely.
