Norbert, I guess this is a problem I caused by "conserving clock" but here is the end of the half:

Adams State College
1:42 47 1st & 10  OFF: Notre Dame Box    DEF: 5-2
Howard Henry takes the handoff and rushes wide. [Rush Defense - short cover] Henry gets to the line. David Johnson gets a hand on Henry to bring him down at the CSM 35. 12-yard gain.

Adams State College

Edward Fields makes the 19-yard field goal attempt. FIELD GOAL.

Obviously, with 2 TOs left, even conserving clock, the Offense has to try to score a TD in that situation. Until this is fixed, I'm thinking I should turn off clock management in the game plan and just use the game's internal logic.

It seems also that if the sim was set to call time out on the two - the TO should have happened immediately after the play, leaving Adams with about 30 seconds left and two timeouts to try for the TD.

Correction: I had selected "run clock" since I was ahead (the default setting). I have now turned that off. I presume the "normal setting" would have handled the clok better. Obviously, if it was the end of the game, I would take a knee and no big deal. But at the end of the 1st half, every team would try to score a TD with a1st and goal from the 2 with all 3 TOs left.

Yes, this is from the Run Clock setting.  I may have to rework how it interprets that for the end of the 1st half.

My clock setting is now on normal (NOT run clock), but still I should have run more plays with 2 TOs left and first and goal from the 1.. Instead my team let the clock run down to 4 secs and kicked an 18 yard FG.

0:30 14 1st & 10
 
 OFF: Notre Dame Box    DEF: 3-4
Greg Cordero takes the handoff rushing inside. [Pass Defense - long cover] Cordero makes his way through the blocking at the line. Cordero is tackled by Brandon Jenkins at the BU 1. 13 yards on the play.
