What was the blunder? Did the Qb fumbled the snap and was it returned for a touchdown?Does kneeling the ball at midfield on 3rd and 4th down, with under a minute left up by less then score merit abuse from the stands? When you lose the game because of that blunder
Yes, they took a knee on 4th down at the opponents 42. There were about 26 seconds left and the other team didn’t have any timeouts.What was the blunder? Did the Qb fumbled the snap and was it returned for a touchdown?
Seems like he took the least riskiest play and put the game in the hands of his defense. Make them go 80 yards, presumably few if any time outs. Is it conservative? Yes. Did it cost them the game? No. Allowing the other team to drive that far in under a minute did.
Edit: I reread your post. He took a knee on 4th down?
Thx for the refresher. Went back to the article in the courier. Got the ball back with 23 seconds left and scored with 1.4 seconds left. Seems as if he would've run the ball on 3rd and 4th down that would've burned a little more time. However if there would've been a fumble the same people would've question why didn't he take a knee? Darned if you do, darned if you don't.Rootstown scored in 5 plays. 1 was to stop the clock.
And then the question becomes who will want to step into that mess. Sounds like they chased off one well-intentioned guy by involving his family in their venom. Numbers down, hostile fan base, new conference....sure....sign me up.all it takes is a few bad apples to taint the whole thing, sometimes the damage done will last long after they've left. No JV team this year, moving to a new conference, I truly wonder what the future is for this program.
