You have to make a rule for that situation
While that makes sense, and I likely will make a rule now... Shouldn't the coaches (AI) be playing to win in a reasonable winnable situation like that, even without my intervention?
That's my point.
Yes, but any time you let the Ai make a decision for you (in game or out of game) you are just asking to be screwed.
That said, I still let the Ai handle most in game situations because of how limited the gameplanning options are right now, I've just come to accept it will most likely not make the right decision.
