Mental Error Monday

It was a wild weekend in College football. There were amazing plays, crazy finishes, and even a controversial call. But the play that topped them all took place in the Clemson/Florida State game.

With time running out in the first half, Clemson was driving looking to score some more points before halftime. They had penetrated into the red zone when Clemson’s quaterback, Deshaun Watson, hurried the team up to the line, took the snap, and spiked the ball in order to stop the clock. What makes this a mental error is that Watson forgot that it was third down and Clemson had one timeout left. So instead of calling the team’s last timeout to stop the clock, Watson spiked the ball making it 4th down forcing Clemson to kick a field goal instead of taking one, maybe even two, shots at the end zone. This is a prime example where the coaches need to be on the top of their game, especially in these games on the big stage, to prevent these young kids from making mental errors like this.

Runner up this week was this:

  
This took place on one of ESPN’s flagship stations when the first College football playoff rankings came out. Apparently, the person in charge of coming up with this graphic hasn’t watched any college football, this year or any year. I can see mistaking the Iowa State logo for Iowa, even though it says Iowa State on the logo, but anybody who knows anything about college football would know that a big yellow “M” is the logo for Michigan, the maize and blue, not Michigan State, who’s colors are green and white.
