Clock Management - Who's in Charge?

Figured someone may have had a topic about this, but I couldn't find one...

Anyway, I'm actually curious -- who is ultimately responsible for clock management at the end of a game?  Is it JT, Ed, or Urban?  In case you haven't noticed, we've had some offensive struggles, and I understand that could take some time to fully resolve.  However, our clock management at the end of the NIU game was atrocious and can be fixed immediately.  I think we ended up leaving about a minute or more on the clock that we shouldn't have, that really could have given NIU a chance to score and tie or win it.  Hurry up offense in the last 4 minutes... 25+ left on the play clock??  I know we have an aggressive offense, but sometimes you have to know when to rein it in and bleed the clock to secure a win.

In the immortal words of IceCube, "Check yo self before you wreck yo self."

I'm not exaggerating when I say a 15 year old playing Madden has better clock management skills than what I saw Saturday.
