Two points:

1) I believe Campbell had the highest QB rating in the nation coming into the game, having completed his lone — lefty — pass for a TD earlier in the year.

2) I spoke with a former NFL QB today and asked him about the call. His take: LU should have run the ball – not risking an INT even with Lum — punted and be done with it. Under no circumstances do you trust the ball with someone who never throws passes, he said. He added: HB options are effective in obvious running situations, when everyone comes up, leaving the WRs open downfield. Maybe that’s what Coen/Cecc were thinking Saturday.
