Bret Bielema called for his quarterback to spike the ball with two seconds on the clock and said after the game that he never gave a thought to running a play.
David Shaw had the best college quarterback in a decade driving for the winning score, and he took the ball out of Andrew Luck's hands, placing it instead on the foot of a freshman kicker.
In both cases, I was trying to help them make the right decision, but they couldn't hear me.
UPDATE: As long as we are talking about CFB coaches, this is a keeper from Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, whose team lost to South Carolina 30-13:
I’ll say it straight out, our football team feels we are better, even after the game, feels we were the better football team than them.
Ok, I understand the concept of an upset, but this wasn't an upset. South Carolina was favored to win, and they did. Time to stop talking, coach.
