C 4-2 V39 Riley, Kevin LL pass incomplete to Allen, Keenan.
Of course, it actually failed. I should note that a)I totally thought it was Marvin Jones there, not Keenan Allen when I was at the game and b)Allen was ridiculously wide open. Riley, unfortunately, could not get the ball to him. This is reminiscent of one of the calls from Big Game 2009 last year where Tedford did not go for it on 4th at midfield. Cal punted the ball and backed Stanford deep in their own territory (the Cardinal then marched down the field, but that's moderately unrelated).
Here, Tedford made the play call that apparently the numbers and the fans wanted him to make. A much more aggressive play call. And it was actually worse off then if they had punted as Colorado then had the ball at midfield. I'm not necessarily talking about the play here regarding whether or not it succeeded or failed. Instead, I'm looking at the fact that Tedford made this call.
Are we seeing a more aggressive Tedford?
