NOT scoring the touchdown? Do you score or not?  

17 members have voted

  1. 1. Texas TE Cade Brewer slid down before scoring late in the Baylor game. There has been much criticism of Tom Herman (because he had told his players not to score) for not delivering the knock out blow. What say you?

    • Score the touchdown. Establish the killer instinct.

    • No, don't score. We don't need the touchdown.

I know the broadcasters went bananas with that idea, but is there proof TH told players not to score?  As much as he misses on the details of other things, I am hesitant to give him credit for anything. 

I read a quote from Brewer somewhere. Can't remember where it came from. I think if he said it, he said it during that last possession.

As a former coach, I probably would've instructed them to do the same thing and not score.  Why? Because it secured the victory with Baylor being out of timeouts. No way they would lose the game at that point. I don't know if that's exactly what transpired, but that's what I would've done.  That's just me though.  I did have a step on their throats mentality until the game was already in hand.

One coll. and one pro. game was lost this weekend because a player scored.

So to me depends on situation time left etc. Pro. player said he knew better but fell into endzone while tring to stop.

As you say, it does depend on the situation. In the Texas-Baylor game, it would have become a 3-score game with under 2 minutes and Baylor was out of time-outs. That's quite different than it being a 1-score game. Baylor was not going to win the game at that point, no matter what anyone says.
