Coach Tyrone Willingham took some time Monday to explain a couple of coaching decisions from Saturday that have been second-guessed a bit.
In one case, the Huskies failed to run a free 15 seconds off the clock while holding on to a six-point lead in the final quarter. That was when they received the ball on a change of possession, and instead of letting the 25-second clock tick all the way down to one or two seconds, the Huskies went to the line of scrimmage and snapped the ball with about 15 seconds left on the clock. Willingham admitted that was an error and the ball shouldn't have been snapped for another 13 seconds or so.
In the other case, Willingham was asked why he continued kicking one-point PATs rather than trying for a two-point conversion to increase the lead to seven or 14 points. Willingham said he considered going for two, and he agreed that a case could be made for going for two, but he simply confirmed that he decided to kick for one. Unfortunately, he didn't really explain why.
