a friend of mine (ucla '91) and i (usc law '01) have been having an interesting discussion about yesterday's game.
his position is: carroll is an a-hole for calling for the bomb with a 21-7 lead and :54 left on the clock.
my position is: carroll called for barkley to take a knee on first down and was ready to run out the clock. neuheisel called a time out with the game already out of reach. so, neuheisel wanted to play, and carroll gave neuheisel more than his team could handle. carroll made a sportsmanly gesture to let the game end, and neuheisel threw down the gauntlet like an a-hole. and neuheisel got burned like an a-hole.
so who's the a-hole?
