Ok, guys. Let's get into the mind of ANOTHER coach, who made a stupid call.
State has 1st and goal on the 4, in the 3rd Overtime against Ohio State. Ohio State has just scored a TD
, but missed the 2-point conversion to take a 44-38 lead. Your QB
, Heisman Candidate David Rivers, has been just killing Ohio State throwing through the air-he's completed like 13 straight passes. So, you would think the Wolfpack would go with what brung them to the dance-pass the ball.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! On first down, they have an empty backfield, and FIVE
wideouts to the left side! I called this one when they lined up-DRAW PLAY! One yard. They throw on second down-incomplete.
On third down, at the 3 or so, they line up in the same formation they lined up in on first down!!!
ANOTHER DRAW PLAY!!! They get 1 more yard! I called THAT play before it was snapped (my dad is my witness.
Now, on fourth down and goal from the two-with the defending national champs on the ropes, you'd think they'd learned their lesson, right? NOOOOOOOOOOOO!
They line up with 4 wideouts to the left side (they're on the right hashmark), an with a single back in the I formation. Ohio State calls timeout. I told my dad that if they stay in that formation, they'll run a sweep to the left, jam all those WR
's to the right to block, and try to sweep it in. But when OSU
called time out, you think NC
State would change the play, right. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
The come out in the SAME FORMATION!! To ANYONE who has watched football, there is no doubt that with such a cockeyed formation, that the only thing they can run is a sweep to the left! The run it, and just as the RB
looks like he's going to get into the endzone, Ohio State DB
Will Allen lays a shoulder into him, and the RB
's but hits the ground at the half yard line. Game, set, match, Ohio State.
Maybe this coach should converse with Wake Forests', to see if they can togehter figure out that YOU DO
WITH WHAT GOT
