Why at the end of the game when UConn only needed to take 3 knees they ran the ball twice? I'll take any explanation... why handing the ball off is better than knees.
Not a big deal. Very good win. We lose and the board is in meltdown mode. We win and it's a ghost town.
No need to nit pick.
I believe south florida had a time out still so we needed to get one first down. If not, there would have been two seconds left for a possible kick return....I think that may be it
Your're not the only puzzled fan.I spoke with Lyle McCombs post game and he said they were all surprised at calls for hand offs. In fact he said "that's why I dove to the ground".
On second down with 54 seconds left on the clock after South Florida had just burned their last timeout and the staff had time to do some simple math (2 * 40 = 80, 80 is greater than 54) we called a running play. The replay shows P yelling into the headset after the play.
It was bad to not take knees, but P and Deleone have accomplished a lot in this game of football, whether you like them or not, it is silly to imply that their coaching is "amateur hour".I can tell Kevin Nathan that every single person in my section was asking the question and it leads you to ask if it's amateur hour.
