Yeah, I saw that also. Hogan was spooked. They should have ran down there
I don't know if they had enough time run it in the RZ. I mean they were working with about 40 seconds when it was 1st and goal. We probably don't agree, but I feel that Shaw made the right calls on that last drive.
It's just Hogan didn't execute, and that's very unfortunate. On the bootleg if he didn't want to throw it to the underneath man he could've just turned into a runner and let the underneath man block for him. He over-analyzed the play though, and tried to squeeze the ball through a window that wasn't there.
This doesn't diminish what is a very good Stanford team Honestly, this is only just the beginning for Shaw. They're going to have one of the most ridiculous Olines in the nation for the next 3-4 years with Keller Chryst at the helm.
Their time will come.
