If you were the coach?

Your team has just scored and converted the extra point. You are now down by 7 with 4 minutes to go with all three timeouts left. If you were the coach, what would you do with the kickoff?

It all depends on how my defense has been playing. Kick deep if my defense is good.

One other thing if I had scored a TD to pull within 8 I would have gone for 2. Even if it failed my team would need another TD and have a second chance converting the deuce.

In this instance, field conditions were fair, due to earlier rain. Athens coach elected to on side kick. He had to redo after they were off sides. He tried it again and Tuscola recovered again at mid field. One first down later, game over. Athens never had a chance to get ball back. I and many others at game would have kicked deep, used my timeouts, hoping to force a punt.
