This came up after mine and Bill's game and I thought it was something interesting to discuss. THIS IS NOT MEANT AS A ARGUING / FLAMING THREAD! Ok so in our game, I was up 24-0 w/ say 3 minutes to play in the third quarter. Bill punted and pinned me inside the 2 yard line. I ran three plays netting 1 yard, so I was saddled with 4th and 9 from my own 3. With a 24 point lead and trying to get out of there with the win, I wanted to at least use up some clock on my wasted possession so ON 4TH DOWN ONLY I turned on chew clock to run the clock down prior to punting. My reasoning was two fold: 1 - I wanted to milk some clock since I'd gone a quick 3 and out with the lead at home and was giving Bill back great field position. I figured it more efficient to use chew clock than wait for the clock to run down to under 5 seconds to punt. 2 - When punting, unlike other offensive plays, the game puts you at the LOS with around 20 seconds to play on the clock if you pick your play quickly. After the 3rd quarter and after the game Bill sited the "rules" which I'm aware of that you don't chew clock unless it's under 3 minutes to play in the half. Which I am aware of. However, I believe all the TSO rules here are general guidelines rather than clear black and white code and my using some clock on one 4th down punt wasn't outside of sim play in this instance. So I guess I'd like to hear some other opinions on this and JCspartan2 's thoughts. Again, this is simply meant as a discussion because I believe it's an interesting scenario. Additionally, I have a counter argument to what the rules currently state and it's regarding the no huddle. This is NOT aimed at anything that happened in the game, but rather a general argument against the current "rules" if you will. Currently we are able to run no huddle whenever we want. I think this is very "un-sim". If you want to run a no huddle offense, I feel it should be consistent. You should either no huddle all the time, or no huddle none of the time....unless going "hurry up" in the 4th quarter etc. No huddle can create an advantage for the offense and given with how quickly the players line up offensively, it isn't very realistic for a team that generally DOES NOT no huddle regularly to be able to line up as quickly as Oregon does at the press of a button. (Just to add though, I'm fine with teams using a no huddle attack, but if you choose to do that, then you need to no huddle 99% of the time, not just when it's convenient.) Now if this is allowed, that teams can no huddle as they pick and choose, then I think a winning team should have every right to go into chew clock as soon as the other team begins to huddle. It's only fair that both teams have that ability to work the clock IMO. Why should a losing team be allowed to go no huddle and snap the ball with over 20 seconds on the play clock while the winning team isn't afforded the same courtesy to chew clock? Again, thoughts?
