they went for it on fourth and one. the colts defense stopped him just short of first down, he thought he got it, colts win 24-17. as if it's not hard enough being a running back in a pass-happy league, however it seem kickers don't have it all that good either. today nfl kickers missed like never before, setinga record with 12 failed extra point attempts. they missed left, right, had kicks nfl moved extra point attempts back before last season, the 20-yard attempt became a 33-yarder and apparently a whole lot harder to make. from football to f utbol, unflv's soccer team hope to have better luck kicking in goals. the rebels played in the second round of the ncaa tournament today. they faced fourth ranked denver
