3: Value of a field goal. I felt this would be a useful reminder, as we saw so few actually go through the uprights this week that it may have been easy to forget. Never mind the most visible examples -- Boise State's egregious miss that ended a long home winning streak, the Stanford miss that came as close to the press box as the goal posts; those are too easy. Instead, focus on, say, the Alabama-Mississippi State and West Virginia-Cincinnati games that saw the four teams combine to go 2-for-10. Only one attempt in the UA-MSU game was from beyond 41 yards; meanwhile, WVU and UC each had a relative chip shot (31 for Cincy, 39 for WVU) blocked. Special teams turn games around, and evidently only LSU plays special teams anymore. (We'll give San Jose State a pass, by the way. They had an attempted game-winner against Utah State blocked at the buzzer just like Cincinnati, only theirs was from 67 yards. That is a kick you are supposed to block. Plus, they made four other kicks.) From this week's Numerical at the mothership.
