re: Statisticians: What is the % that calling TO with 20 seconds would've affected (Posted on 10/21/13 at 5:31 pm to jwill37)
Based on the events of the night it was probably zero.
Our QB had already thrown three home run shots into nice defensive coverage 4 times. Three ended in an interception and there should have been one more.
It is hilarious how Miles is so critiqued for such stupid shite. LSU fans will never be happy. So they planned to ice the kicker and he changed his mind too late to try another incredible long shot. I mean our fans need to get over it. Half of these so called time management issues are completely over blown or misplaced. This stuff also happens all the time in football even from big time coaches. It is fun to pile on Miles because he is LSU's coach which has ridiculously critical fans and the fact Miles has an actual personality unlike the rest of the robots in coaching.
I mean I understand being critical of coaching, but it looked a lot more like our defense isn't that good and our senior QB made incredibly costly decisions in an SEC road game.

We did score 24 points in the 2nd half one way or the other...
We played bad and probably didn't deserve to win. But Miles put the cherry on top with not even giving them a chance at the end. We pay him for a coaching edge - that's why he's getting criticized. Yes, people will criticize him for anything at times. But this is legit. Hearing his explanation was probably even worse.
