Long: "The chart had nothing to do with it, I felt like going for it"

When asked about lining up for the two point conversion and the win against Nevada in overtime on Saturday, San Diego State head coach Rocky Long could only shrug his shoulders and smile, saying "I just felt like going for it."

After the game, Long assured reporters that while his decision to go for two in order to get within three points during the third quarter was aided by the chart that many coordinators and head coaches keep on their play call sheets to advise them of whether to kick it or go for two, the overtime decision was all about a gut feeling.

"The chart had nothing to do with that. It was a gut feeling." Long added.

The conversion improved San Diego State to 5-3 overall and 3-1 in Mountain West play, and earned Long our "Call of the Week."
