    Lehigh leading 35-28. First and 10 on the Fordham 45 after getting a pick of the Fordham QB. 2:53 remaining in the game.
    Time to get the running game, which has been going well all day, back in gear, right?
    Wrong!
    Pass play by Clark is incomplete, which stops the clock and gives Fordham another shot if their defense holds (it did).
    Aaaarrrggghhhhhh!!!!!! JJH

    As I said on the other thread, even the Fordham broadcasters could not believe it.

    that was not the coaches’ fault. the play was suppossed to be a run, but JB changed it at the line. :roll:

    He has that authority. With all the ‘pausing’ to look to the sideline, AS OPPOSED to looking over the defense, himself, I find that difficult to believe.

    While that Clark miscue could certainly be in the running, the play that really had my underwear in a knot was the early muffed punt return that led to a Fordham TD. Just a terrible decision to try to field the punt, and then when the punt hit the (shoulderpad?) he should have just kicked it out of the end zone. Lehigh had established dominance early, their offense did nothing, and all of a sudden it was a football game.

    It may seem like Lehigh loses games in the 4th quarter, but in truth Lehigh loses games on plays like this IMO.

    OK Lex I’ll take your word for it. But that still makes it troubling. Anyone who has even casually followed football, my 29 year old daughter for one, knows the primary goal in that situation is to make the clock run. I could believe Andy Reid calling that play, but a smart Lehigh student?!!! :shock:

    engineer:

    The NFL had its share of dumb plays, too, this weekend:

    Chad Henne throwing a ridiculous pass for the Dolphins Sunday and getting picked (leading to a game-changing score) against the lowly Bucs when all he had to do was get a first down to win with less than 2 minutes left. (Maybe it’s a Florida thing?) That said, Henne redeemed himself by going downfield and scoring in virtually no time.

    How about the Patriots going for it on 4th and 2 on their own 28 Sunday night, losing the game? They can afford to lose a game once in a while.

    Lex:

    I think it’s one thing to call a play and execute it, a second thing to look over at the sidelines every play after setting up, a third to scan the defense and audible, and a fourth to get everyone to execute the play correctly.

    Do you think this is a problem?

    As a parent, what do you think of the coaching situation? Change it or leave it alone?

    Sunnyday,
    I don’t like the ‘pausing/looking to sidelines’ – but that’s just me. Does any other team do it?

    I personally like Coen; but I think 4 years is enough time. the program is regressing
