I believe the point y'all made was that a timeout should've been called.
The point I made was that it may have killed some SUPER SLIM chance we had anyway, but that isn't why we lost. Of all the things that happened y'all bitch about this. What about starting to use Hunter a lot on the 1st 2 downs just recently? Waiting till the end of the game to put Louis in? Calling deep shots when we could've dinked and dunked to a 3 td victory?
But no, you want to bitch about a timeout that DIDN'T frickING MATTER

So we should just give up? What a retarded comment. You also say the odds weren't necessarily any better for getting down the field than the kicker missing. Well the chances for a block and the kid missing were the EXACT same whether there were 25 seconds or 6 seconds on the clock, so why the frick not give yourself a few seconds to try something??

Crazy thought....but part of me thinks the no time out was deliberate. METT had 3 INTs and had not played well the past 2 weeks. Had Les called TO n we lost (which we would have done) the heat would have been on Mett and the young D....by not calling the TO the heat all becomes directed toward him and not his players---now his players refocus and rally on the field to defend Miles.....CLM IS NOT as dumb as you all think he is--after all he is making $4M a year.

We understand but how many games will it take our head coach to learn managing clock is important part of game. The guy makes millions of dollars a year with a first class staff. Do we forget that same issue happened few years ago in Oxford.
