Cardiac Hill Poll of the Week: Revisiting 4th down vs. Iowa

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

With Pitt out of action this week, we're still being somewhat forced to look back at last weekend's game vs. the Hawkeyes. In a close loss to Iowa, Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi made a controversial decision to punt in Iowa territory on 4th down with the team needing but a few short inches for a first down.

The Panthers punted the ball away and watched Iowa march down the field for a touchdown. Pitt did come back to tie the game momentarily, but eventually lost on a last-second 57-yard field goal.

Chris mentioned this in the Turning Point of the Week, and as most of you know, I was against the punt given all of the circumstances. But now we want your thoughts. Was Narduzzi wrong to punt the ball away or was it a decision you could live with?

Let us know in the poll and comments section below.
