I don't think he should've spiked it. That just would've cost him more time.
This comes down to 2 things. CJ Mosley made a pivotal play, probably the biggest play of the whole game. & The unfortunate receiver caught a ball that wasn't mean't for him. If they spiked the ball, the same thing could've happened as it seems like they knew exactly which play they wanted to call and would've run the same one.
I've heard the argument that taking more time, may have given him a better chance to make a better throw, but the UF TE not fumbling the ball in endzone for the WLOCP would've cost Georgia the game. Luckily for them Jarvis Jones did what he did, and luckily for us our best LB made a similar play.
Lets not forget that even if they would have gotten the TD, they would have had to get a 2 pt conversion just to tie. Off topic I know but people like to claim that UF would have won had that not happened, which is quite a stretch in itself
