    Default High School Football thread

    My step son's high school varsity team is so damn frustrating to watch. The coaching staff is horrible with game management.

    Tell me if I am wrong here.

    On Friday Night we traveled almost 4 hours for a game and the team was down by 15 with about 2 1/2 minutes to go. The coaches still had all 3 time outs and had the opponent in a 3rd and 9 and never called a time out to A stop the clock, and B regroup your defense. Needless to say a first down was made and they continued to just let them run the clock out. I have always been taught to never leave timeouts on the clock when trailing especially if you still have a shot. Granted they would have needed 2 TD's with one 2 point conversion for a tie. Myself and many of the other parents were so damn ticked off that the coaches gave up. Yes the odds are not in your favor in that situation, but you have to let the kids try right?

    Yeah, wrong. Did you get lost? Or was the game in Mexico?

    No, they scheduled this team last year too (non league game), they came here and this year we went there.
    Last year we lost after taking a 5 point lead with 44 seconds left and the coaches kicked off to one of the fastest guys in the league that they belonged to. And he ran it all the way back. So instead of a squib, they allowed a team to have a run back.
    O.k. technically it takes about 3 hrs 25 min to get there, but with food stop it took about 4 hours and yes we stayed the night at a hotel.
