4th and 4 NOBODY in the history of football would ever throw it away to avoid a sack. Especially with a minute left driving down by one.

1:34 46 4th & 4   OFF: Notre Dame Box    DEF: 4-4

Willie Atkinson takes the snap and drops back to pass. [Rush Defense - short cover] Blackburn is well covered at the CU 41. Atkinson throws the ball away to avoid the sack.

I once saw a Highschool Team spike the ball on 4th and 1 to stop the clock.

Colorado did it against Missouri in '90. It worked out pretty well for them...

You just HAD to bring that up didn't you! LOL, the old famous 5th down play that beat Mizzou.

I've also noticed this. I think, in this situation, the QB should automatically scramble? What do you'll think?
