Thread: Going conservative with the lead

    Hard pass. Unsubscribe.

    But back on topic (is that even allowed?). Thursday night was the only time I can ever legitimately remember almost being blown off my feet by the wind. Multiple times. And they were all from halftime through the end of the game. So I would have been conservative as all get out, too. I had had many libations and practically yelled for Coach Debesse to run a reverse or ANYTHING to try to take App off guard. But in the light of complete sobriety, yes the conditions were bad enough to affect even pitches going toward against that hurting/cross wind.

    It was a really stupid call, and it got laughed at across media for a week. Specifically because there is no rule against dancing. This was in no way taunting or threatening. It was dancing and getting hyped during a time out.

    Add that to all the other garbage throughout that entire game, and we had very slanted officiating against us.

    This stuff does make a difference. It has made a difference ever since we got to the sun belt. Other teams in this conference simply don't get punked like we do. Especially at Paulson.
    Im not defending the call but even CCL said he should've kept them closer to the sideline. That game was chippy from the start due to their HC and his dislike of GS. The officials were probably worried it could lead to something worse.

    You should take it for a spin if you don't like me.

    Why subject yourself to such unhappiness? Life is too short.

    (Seriously. I'm not trying to be rude or facetious or sarcastic. Rather than coming back and throwing stones at me, why not just turn me off?)
    Because this is what you do to every single thread. You turn it into some big conspiracy. Try being a official. You can't see everything. Absolutely, unequivocally there is no bias against us at home or on the road.

    Btw, this totally debunks your conspiracy theory. We average 4.8 penalties a game. Next closest is south Alabama at 5.4

    If you want to be technical, it could be called unsportsmanlike conduct because they were almost on that hash marks. They didn't call the penalty until CCU started dancing.

    It was funny because it was their cheerleaders, but I was actually a little concerned for the App crew when they pulled up the big flags and started to get blown over.

    Both teams were near the hash mark = flag. They wanted to stop it before anything were to happen (proactive). Notice the following week, the team faced the fans and stayed on the sideline and no flag.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    (it most definitely was not, but I digress.)

    How come all our offensive plays were snapped with 10 to 15 seconds on the clock?

    If you’re trying to burn clock, burn some damn clock!

    Clock management was something Ellison was a master at. I sure wish we had that again. It’s basic, but critically important

    I thought Shai did a good job running the clock down to below 5 seconds on the last final drives---- I by no means support the conservative play calling in the 4th, want to get that in the open lol

    You act like we lost instead of beating a top 20 team in horrible weather in a place we historically do not play well.

    Just go away!

    Unsportsmanlike Conduct (Taunting)

    It's just that simple.
