    Coach Petersen is a great program coach and for the most part a good game-day coach but for some inexplicable reason he is inclined to make absolutely horrible game-time decisions at the most critical times of the game.

    Putting in a rookie QB that has NEVER played one single down against an FBS school when we are backed up on our own 10-yd line? It's freaking unbelievable? We all were mumbling, "he's going to throw an INT." No surprise there.

    I think it can be reasonable argued that he has possibly cost us all three games this season. At the time of every one of those decisions I have been watching the game in a room with former college football players, and current high school football players. Virtually every single one of us was up yelling at the TV asking WTH he was doing each time!

    Oh, and I forgot, yes this OC is a nightmare, and I have heard rumors that was part of the exchange between Jake and Coach Petersen on the sidelines.

    Certainly think this decision and his decision to sit on the ball with 20 seconds left against Oregon to set up the field goal both were very costly.

    Live and learn.

    I'm glad he is coaching the Huskies.

    Or you can look at it this way. If your Senior QB wasn’t out there crapping the bed on the field then that move never happens.
    I don’t blame the coach for trying to light a fire under an under achieving player, it just backfired.

    I agree with you on the OC however, he’s not good.

    IIRC it was 31 seconds AND two timeouts. With the two timeouts you have innumerable options to either score a TD or give yourself a much shorter FG. I guess I would get it if you have a very good kicker, but this is a kicker that Coach Petersen had shown very little confidence in even before that.

    The third game I referenced was the drive at the end of the Auburn game where we ran the ball right up the middle TWICE IN A ROW into an Auburn d-line that had successfully defended that play the entire game. That left us with another 3rd and long that also played into the strengths of that d-line. This, after Jake had been moving the ball well. Yes, I know, that was the OC, but the HC always has the ability to quash a play call. Just mind-boggling.

    Edit: it was 35 seconds! https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/uw- ... ield-goal/

    Of course I see your point but here's the deal: typically when this happens your QB is "crapping the bed" AND you are losing so you don't have anything to lose. Right? But that was NOT the scenario here, we were winning and the game was so tight that you had MUCH more to lose than gain, especially seeing as that we were backed up on our own 10-yd line.

    I'm sorry but that was just plain reckless.
