Query

Four minutes, 9 seconds left in the game.

You are down by three points.

You have one time out.

Your defense has been completely unable to stop the run.

Why do you not onside kick, Mark Richt?

Richt is a good coach at Georgia, but his late-game clock management is horrid. He’s lost several games by letting the opposition run out the clock and kick game-winning field goals in the closing seconds while he still had time outs on the board. And today, he didn’t even give his team a chance with an onside kick. All Tech needed was a couple of first downs to ice the game. They could have gotten those anywhere on the field. The only way to try to win was to onside kick.

(Note: I typed this in as the kick was made.)
