Rainy Tuesdays are much worse than Mondays, in my opinion, and I was hoping to see a few more thoughts about the time-out called with three seconds left in the half.
Here's my take: there is no significant risk from taking this timeout (chance of a successful hail mary is pretty minimal). However, there is not much reward there either, as the probability of a turnover-for-touchdown is even less than that of a conversion.
As a Brady Hoke apologist, and admittedly able to find the smallest amount of hope in the least-sensible ways, I would argue that it was a good call. The fact of the matter is: Penn State was content to let the clock run out and go in for a rest. Brady Hoke said, "wait a minute there, get on back out here and finish some football." I like the mindset
because I am stupidly loyal and find humor in the call in that the opposition was trying to do one thing, and Michigan forced them to do the other.
I saw Space Coyote chime in on this as well in a different thread, I would like to hear a few more thoughts. Seems to me the general sentiment is it was bad because it gave them a chance to throw the ball to the endzone (if PSU thought they had a chance of converting, why didn't they try it themselves)?
