Screaming at the Television
Posted by Gordon Smith

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.
