The timeout???? Why it is such a bad call

As I sat on the phone screaming "No" as I begin to comprehend the fact that OU has called a timeout and realized that we have just given the most dangerous player in the Big 12 a chance to make magic as he has done all night, I begged the question why??? This call will be debated until next Saturday and possibly go down as the reason that our Sooners will not play for possible national Championship. The debate should begin and end here....your defense is not playing good and you are playing a prevent (non-attacking) style defense why not just go to overtime (where you at least get the ball to your offensive unit who Baylor failed to stop all night long) Instead we play in hopes that RG3 will make some mysterious error or that our defense who had come up with very few plays and no turnovers all night would all of sudden do something great neither of which happened. What happened is what had been happening all night and that was our secondary getting torched. The only saving grace to the plays earlier in the game were that the offense would get the ball back and have a chance to match Baylor point for point but with only 51 seconds left unless something "2000 NC amazing" happened that would not be the circumstance and it didn't. Coaching rarely wins games. In most cases the best teams win games with execution but coaching can most definitely hinder a team from winning a game and last night the decision to call a timeout left OU and Baylor with few options and Baylor's option (RG3) was better and had been better than OU's option (our secondary) all night long.
