Penn State up 16 1st down 30 seconds left...other side zero timeouts and Penn St runs two plays to score TD and cover
a lot is made about "protecting the student athletes," the case can be made, what if somebody got an injury on a needless play.
to be fair, the entire drive sequence needs to be analyzed; remember when Fulmer at Tenn was just handing off to kill the time remaining against a blown out patsy, and the opposing coach gets a brainstorm and calls timeout.
the camera was on Fulmer the whole time, he never changed expression or said a word, he knew the OC would know what to do. play resumes, play action and the qb hits the WR on a fly pattern, off to the races for a 60 yd TD.
Fulmer might have told coach during the post game handshake to take the timeout and ''insert up ass.''
