At the time, we were pretty much sitting on the lead, keeping the ball on the ground and taking up as much time as possible (not really trying that hard to score again). For Reid to seemingly make no effort to conserve the clock in either game was actually helping us in our "use up the clock and win" strategy.
True, but when they were 9-0 they were calling for Reid to be coach of the year. Now they are blaming him.
