Who calls a timeout when the opponent has a first down with 2:43 left on the clock?
That call blew my mind.
We had two timeouts left. That means you wait until they run a play before calling your first timeout so that after the 3rd down play, you still have the 2 minute warning to stop the clock.
Calling a timeout before the first down play means that the 3rd down play will likely come after the 2 minute warning.
Why do so many coaches fail at clock management?
