Everyone is talking about the call, What call? Gamecock coaching candidate Billy Napier makes one bizarre decision during the win over App. St. last night

Dec. 05, 2020

Louisiana’s big start has put Napier clear on the head coaching radar for bigger programs, including South Carolina. His experience as an assistant under both Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney are certainly attractive, and he’ll get his chance to run a Power 5 program soon.

However, Napier made a strange bizarre coaching decision during Friday night’s 24-21 win over Appalachian State.

Facing 4th down and 2 from its own 35-yard-line and leading 24-19 with 1:50 remaining, Napier called on his offense to take a safety. The longstapper had a tough time Friday night, including snapping one into the end zone earlier in the game, but there are a couple different things that Napier could have decided to do other than take a safety. The offense could have gone for it on 4th and 2, or the quarterback could have pooch-punted it.

Anyway, the safety cut Louisiana’s lead to 24-21 and gave the ball back to Appalachian State with 1 timeout and needing only a field goal to tie. The Mountaineers put themselves in prime position to tie the game, but they shanked the field goal.

Here’s how it all went down:
