[quote]Really? Imagine how hard it would be to move the ball if they knew you were going to throw the ball. [/quote] I am. It's still not as hard as it is to run the ball.

[quote]C hurts team chemistry. Lots of the best relievers only want the ninth. Saves are a stat that they can use to negotiate their next contract.

[quote]From anywhere on the field? [/quote] yes. It's positive equity value to go for it as opposed to punting/FG attempt from every conceivable position on field on 4th and 1. Obviously there are certain situations like down 2 with 5 seconds left where you should kick on 4th and 1...

[quote]Switching to the prevent defense during a team's 2 minute drill when your standard d has shut them down all game.[/quote] Agreed, however I don't think this happens as much as people think.

Most Illogical Decision Consistently Made by Sports Coaches? - TheSexecutioner
What do you think is the most egregious example of irrational behavior in coaching(of a major sport) that happens frequently? a) punting on most 4th downs b) basketball coaches pulling players with early foul trouble c) pitching "Closer" in the 9th inning regardless of whether there are more es...

re: WWYD as Wisconsin Coach? - TheSexecutioner
All of you saying there was a 100% chance LSU runs 3 times are straight up wrong. Teams pass all the time in that situation. Teams would especially pass if they realize on 1st and 2nd down that the defense is selling out as if they don't even have to defend a deep route. The difference between...

re: WWYD as Wisconsin Coach? - TheSexecutioner
Because they don't have equal payoffs, so its not simply a matter of which one is more likely. If they convert the first down, they get the ball on at least the 20 with 3 timeouts and 1:30 on the clock. If they hold LSU to a 3 and out, they get the ball with worse field position, no timeouts, an...

[quote]LSU being up 4 and LSU being up 7 is very different[/quote] It doubles your chances of winning. But in that level of desperation, that isn't that much. 7% chance of scoring down 7 is better than 3% chance of scoring down 4. So if you can find an advantage that can double your chances of...
