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.
