LSU is up by 2 against Clemson with about 2 minutes to go. Les Miles, the Mad Hatter, has that quarterback, a kid named Zach Mettenberg(er). Who is essentially… he’s a Mark Sanchez type quarterback in the sense that he’s not particularly competent; he can throw a good deep ball here and there, but his completion percentage is not very good and in critical games with LSU, he hasn’t been much. But Les Miles recruits the greatest runners in the world. Les Miles has 20 guys on his team who run a 4.3 forty. And deep in his own territory up by 2 late in the game, he calls 3 straight pass plays which result in 3 straight incompletions. So that Clemson doesn’t even have to use any of its timeouts to get the ball. It’s the worst clock management. It’s worse than what Jason Garrett does. When you look at Jason Garrett, you go, “What are you thinking? What are you doing?”. This was so egregious… so terrible. Clemson got the ball on a punt, and Clemson kicked a field goal at the last second and won the game. That was terrible. I don’t know how he keeps his job.
