There is perhaps no more of an armchair quarterback situation than whether or not to go for it on fourth down. It’s pretty easy to say that when it’s not your offense you’re leaving on the field for a 4th-and-3 at your own 45 but, according to the numbers, that’s exactly what you should do.
And now, thanks to this chart created by Coug Center writer Zane Murfitt, we can see how often your favorite coach does — or does not — go for it.
The chart can be sorted by conference and by year, showing often Army leaves its offense on the field for fourth down under Jeff Monken…
and how rarely Florida State went for it under Jimbo Fisher.
Take a look for yourself below.
