Ding ding ding...obviously that area of the game needs a liiiiiittle bit of work.
If running the ball is everything that football is about then why do they even let them pass? Also if a team has zero running game how could they control the clock by getting the rush stuffed back in their face for four downs just to give it up.
Uhm, huh? You're on the goal line, up by 2 TDs, with under a minute to go. You kneel the ball twice, game over.
Anyways...I'm not going to continue this debate with you anymore because it will never end. I have seen your blind devotion to T.U. in other debates which is amazing to witness at times.
OMG....what the F does Leech's absolute classlessness have to do with the University? And your above comment is the epitome of the skunk calling the dog stinky, as you try to rationalzie Leech's utter lack of character.
You have your "opinion" and I have mine.
And my opinion is shared by 99.99% of other coaches from Bantam LEague to the NFL. You have the ball, and a lead, with under a mintue to go, on the opponents goal line...you kneel it. What is the risk reward factor over 7 points? The reward is you win by 21 vice 14. The risk is you look like a jackass, you throw an INT, or you lose a player to injury. This was a dumb move anyway you try to rationalize it.
Lastly, the funniest part of this entire thread is the fact that you are all bent out of shape over a game that you didn't witness in person, listen to on the radio or watch on TV.
Uhm, I did listen to it on the radio.......I had money on the game.
You read the ESPN article about a team you don't care about, a game that didn't involve T.U. and college you didn't go to and it has twisted you this much.....That is just comical.
Football is football. This was a classless move, by a classless coach. It has nothing to do with Texas, and everything to do with an utter lack of integrity. This is akin to a basketball team being up by 50 with 5 seconds to go, calling timeout to get the ball to halfcourt, and then hoisting up a 3 pointer.
