Is Tedford a good game-time coach?


This posts already sounds sacriligeous. I mean how can one criticize God of all people! I mean he's not even a homo sapien, but rather the evolved and superior homo tedfordis.

But hear me out. I saw this post on BearInsider (which is about CGB's What worries you about Cal? post... holy circular links batman!). Naturally that post is a somewhat trollish post. But it does raise a valid question.

Is Tedford a good/excellent game-time coach?

And by game-time coach I don't mean his recruiting skills, his managerial skills, his motivational skills, or even his skills in improving players' skillsets. Rather I mean things such as correct usage of the game clock, time-outs, coach's challenges, half-time adjustments, etc.

Some examples are: Not telling Riley to throw the ball away during the OSU game in '07, not challenging the no-call on the Maryland safety, making adjustments during the Oregon '07 game during half-time leading to a comeback, etc.

Now I refuse to answer my own question because while I have turned into another die-hard Cal fan, I'm still a newbie when it comes to Cal and even football. I still don't understand all the Xs and Os of football. So that's why I'd like to hear some opinions from those here at CGB that do know their stuff.
