Um, not in the last two minutes, he didn't coach a good game. With the lead and two minutes remaining and the game in your house, you should be able to keep a team from going 70 yards for the winning TD. He rushed 2 and got burned. He brought heat and got burned. Why not just play a legitimate prevent and protect the end zone?
They lost because they didnt go for it to put the game away when they had the chance. The loss was squarely an offensive failure. Kicking a fieldgoal to go up by two was stupid. Anybody could see that gives FSU too much time and they would only need a fieldgoal to win. They were not gonna lose that. Too much riding on it.
But they elected to take the points and it proved a bad decision. It wasnt his failure. Overall Foster had a good plan.
you talking about? FSU won the game 28-22. Wouldn't have mattered since Logan "He's-So-Tall" Thomas can't deliver when he has to. When you have the lead with two minutes to play and the strength of your team (supposedly) is on the field to seal the deal in front of the home crowd, you should win the game.
Ok, since u r obviously asleep , let me explain something to

you. VT could have gotten a first down when it was fourth and like 1 yard. It wasnt scoring a TD that would have mattered. But if they go for it, make the first down, they run out the clock at the point and can score a td or the field goal and FSu has no time remianing. Tehy elceted to kick the field goal with over two min left instead. It was the wrong call. VT has no season left, they r done. When you have a top ten team at home on the ropes, you finish it. You dont plan for luck to save you or a great defensive effort. You finish it right then and there. They could have an didnt.
Look, Sport, nobody in their right mind risks going for

it on 4th down when a FG puts you in the lead with two minutes remaining. If you were (LMAO) head coach at Clemson and turned it over on downs in that situation, I would come to your house and kick your ####. Kicking the FG was absolutely the right thing to do. If they had blown it by going for it on 4th down and not making it, Beamer would have been the laughing stock of the college football world today.
And you think Bud Foster bears no blame for the loss? Really? And you say I'm asleep?
Anyone watching that game with any sense would have been saying to themselves. FSU only needs a field goal with over two min left. I would have bet on the top ten team to do that. VT make the wrong call, they should have ended it when they had the chance. They didnt and they lost. VT had nothing to lose, so you definately go for it in that senario. Was a boneheaded decision.
I guess Beamer's crytal ball was in the shop last night.

According to you, he should been able to see the future. In that situation, I'm not going to lose the game by turning it over on downs when I can take the lead and put my defense on the field to seal the win at home.
No, I'm not talking about on 4th down. I'm saying they got real conservative, running up the middle, once they got that first down. It seemed to me they were content with a FG and didn't sense the urgency to get it in the end zone. I agree that they had to kick the FG on 4th down. I just don't think they had the right play calls to get it in the endzone. Too conservative...
I would have been rushing three, playing man coverage

with help from two safties. Whichever LB was not picking up a receiver could bring pressure. His secondary was playing way back, he either brought no rush or he brought the farm and he got his butt handed to him big time.
BTW, they needed at least 45 yards. They started on their own 30. They needed to get inside the 40 to have a good shot at it.
