Zero excuse for a coach to put a cold RB (London) in the game deep in the 4th quarter. I blame that more on the coaches than the player. Just dumb. And IIRC Chandler never came back after his fumble?

I just can NOT stand this running in and out of the RBs so much....A good/great RB gets into a flow the longer the game goes on. Just don't understand it. Jordan was punishing them in the 4th and they pull him and bring in London.

Yeah I wondered about that.  Madre is a good back though.

Then get him in the rotation in the 1st half...not when you are trying to seal a win late in the 4th......London had been on the sidelines the whole game with temps in the 30's by the time he was put in the game. Never do that unless it's because of injuries or you're up enough to play the 2nd teamers.

Yeah I get it.

Another coach that over-rotated backs was Kiffin.  I still  maintain we lost to UCLA because on first and goal from the 9, Kiffin rotated Bryce Brown in for Hardesty on 2nd and 4th down.  Result was 8 yards in 4 plays, 7 by Hardesty.  Hardesty was obviously the better short distance back and was in rhythm.  I blame that loss on Kiffin to this day.
