Check Out the Fake Injury from Last Nights Clemson Tiger – Georgia Bulldog Football Game … #84 Told to Lay Down Pretending Injury to Stop the Clemson Fast Break Offense
THE NCAA BETTER DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS OBVIOUS CHEATING, OR ARE THEY ONLY GOING TO SUSPEND THE PLAYER FOR A HALF ALSO?
CHEATERS!!! The NCAA could not seem to find it in themselves to properly penalize Johnny Manziel for his alleged autograph signing and potential profiting from it, but they better find a way to stop the recurrent cheating by teams faking injuries on defense to stop the pace of the game and the high attack offenses like the Clemson Tigers. Watch the video below and see the obvious cheating by the University of George defense. One player, #5 CB Damian Swann, looks to the sidelines to the coaching staff, then you see him tell the other player, #84 LB Leonard Floyd, to go down on the ground and pretend like he was injured. The effect, stopping the flow of the game and the “tempo” of the high octane Clemson Tiger offense with triplets, QB Taj Boyd, WR Sammie Watkins, RB Roderick McDowell.
This type of obvious cheating has got to be punished as it is taking away from the integrity of the game. If the defensive players cannot suck it up and play, then either the coaching staff needs to take a time out or they better do some better conditioning during training camp. However, the refs need to start calling 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalties. And if it continues to occur, players need to be suspended. This kind of stuff happened to Clemson during last years Chick-fil-a Bowl when the Clemson offense ran 100 offensive plays on the LSU defense and the defenders were dropping like flies and constantly taking a knee claiming injury.
One thing is for certain, the NCAA needs to penalize this obvious cheating, for the good and the integrity of the game.
Let’s get some thing perfectly clear, I could care less about the Clemson Tigers, I am a SEC fan, I just thing that it is a bush league play to fake an injury as a form of defense against an offense that you can’t keep up with. I say this no matter who does it. When it is so obvious that is what is going on, as almost like it has become a defensive call.

With video evidence that this behavior is being directed by the coaching staff, the only way to stop it is to remove the head coach from the game.
If the head referee is given that option, it can be brought under control. The fans are not appreciative of such behavior. That will destroy the fan base and much of the money if it continues.
The officiating in the game was so one sided who cares. Clemson played well and deserved the win, however, UGA miscues caused a 24 point swing toward Clemson. In other words the DAWGS stank and as a result lost a game they should have won by at least 14 points. Stick to politics please who cares about your sports favorites?
oh stop it….Dawg haters.
SM: Dawg hater? I actually like the SEC and the UGA, don’t like cheating much though no matter who does it.
Yea, how did you like that hit the Bama player put on Murray in the SEC Championship game last year, that was nifty and real clean too wasn’t it. Its a game they all do it. Injury fakes have been occurring since I played and I am 65 YO. Get over it.
dawg1948 … Hitting is part of the game and there is a fine line between and aggressive hit and a cheap shot. Football is a violent sport and frankly I am a bit tired of all the rules out in place to protect QB’s.
However, to fake an injury is just bush league. Trust me UGA is not the only team guilty of it, they just happen to have got caught in the video above.
Hey R hitting is part of the game cheap late dirty hits are not. I love a great defense and neither UGA nor Clemson displayed great caliber teams with their lousy defensive play. I like nothing better than clean vicious defensive hits but what Murray received in the Bama game was not clean.
SM: I am trying to remember the play and I just can’t. I will take your word for it. Cheap shots are not a part of the game either. Sadly though, they are making any hard, clean hit not a part of the game these days.
I agree they are destroying the game of football and making it a higher scoring lower contact sport. The days of great defensive hits are coming to an end. The game is being legislated to death like our country.
If you have to roll around on the ground, you should be taken out for the rest of the game.
Sportsmanship is a foreign language to most coaches now, and it shows in the play.
