Unless there was a 2nd timeout I didn't see, he wasn't icing his own kicker. The team wasn't even lined up to snap. They were just running the clock down to the minimum (5 seconds left) before calling a timeout to ensure WSU would have no chance of a comeback in regulation. It was definitely the right thing to do.
I mean, I guess it is technically icing him, since he had to wait an extra 60 seconds from after his warmup kicks to the real thing, but that kind of timeout is very, very routine.
Coons is a mediocre kicker. Has been all season. He's no Erik Folk. Not even close. Not only did he badly miss it, but distance wise if he had made it it would have only cleared the crossbar by about 10 feet... if that. Which is pretty damn scary considering that it was only a 35 yard attempt.

At this point, I think he has to. He probably won't though.
In fairness, Price might be a new man with Daniels and Stringfellow next season. Unlike rookies in the NFL, college freshman WRs are known for having an instant impact fairly often. After watching the last two seasons, I think the truth about Price is that he's only as good as his supporting cast.
