Contra Costa Times: Tedford Should Have Let UCLA Score In Final Minute
Case in point: Cal trailed by one point when quarterback Joe Ayoob was intercepted by UCLA cornerback Trey Brown with 1:01 left in Saturday night's thriller at the Rose Bowl. Instead of allowing UCLA to run the clock out and end the game, Cal coach Jeff Tedford should've let UCLA score from the Cal 7. That way, the Bears would've gotten the ball back down eight points with approximately 50 seconds left, which would've given them a chance to score, convert the two-point conversion and send the game into overtime. Instead, Cal allowed UCLA to run the ball four times with Maurice Jones-Drew scoring on the fourth play as the final seconds ticked off the clock.
