Dawg fan - I could just scream

FOOTBALL 101 - When to spike the ball
Spiking the ball wastes a down so only spike when time is scarce and more valuable than downs. With four downs to play and only 15 seconds left with no time outs and a potential national championship in the balance time is scarce in the extreme and the fourth down has no value because at most three plays are possible. In such a situation it borders on malpractice to fail to spike.
