Whats up with the dive fumble??????

This has plague the series for the last few years. I dont understand why it even happens. I just lost to #20 USC in like 6 overtimes because of it. My defense held them to a field goal (finally), so a touchdown would win it. But what do you know? I decide to dive into the endzone for the gamewinner. Sure enough, he fumbles it...I just wanna know why??? Lol, whats the point?

If you know it happens, why dive when you are in the clear and about to win? Never had it happen to me, though.

You dont think about it when you are in the 6th overtime of a conference game, with the potential to pull an upset over a ranked opponent..Pardon me for trying to win with style lol

Should've held 'protect ball'. Most likely he would have fallen forward into the endzone.

Think about it. When you dive, you're making a desperation attempt for more yards, exposing your body and the ball. Protect that ball like a baby man. IMO, that is more than realistic
