    I know it happens a lot, but since it's Georgia, I'll point it out.

    Gators were accused of such against the Aggies last year.

    I personally believe it was a part of the game plan last year vs the aggies and it should be a part of the game plan. We had some real injuries but I dont think all of them were real

    Remember when Wuerffel faked an injury, hobbling off the field, and his backup came in and immediately completed a long pass? I think it was against Bama, and this was seen as part of SOS' evil genius.

    This will lead to yet another rule which is the last thing this sport needs. In the coming years, I would bet that any players that require the clock to be stopped in order to receive medical attention will have to at least sit out the remainder of that possession or preferrably the remainder of that quarter of play - which ever is longer. The sport that is known as football internationally (soccer) has been slow to address it's problem of faking and has damaged it's brand because of it.

    But UGa was so obvious about it. If we did it we at least were better at it than they were.

    It was Eric Kresser vs Bama in the SECCG in 1994.

    You wouldn't be defending them by saying they weren't faking.

    Yeah but I get a little twitch going when I have to say anything in favor of UGA.

    Faking an injury in the 1st quarter of a 0-0 ball game? What was that like the 5th play of the game?

    Hate to say it but I'm not buying it (being a fake). What was he trying to do... slow down the pace of the game? lol

    Players will get coached to sit and wait for the medical staff in situations where they could have hobbled off the field themselves. In the past we have seen players try to be tough and make it off the field when they should have stayed down. Now we will see players stay down who could have made it off the field on their own.

    I don't consider it to be a big deal unless a player does in fact have no injury and is only acting injured to stop the clock.

    Fines for the coaches after post-game review? If a player comes off the field with an injury they have to sit at least two plays? Three plays?

    I do think that if this becomes more widespread, then the NCAA has to try and do something about it, but what?

    I'm still waiting for a team to abuse the helmet rule, loosen up the straps a little along the defensive line (you were going to be subbing them in and out anyway) and buy yourself a couple of seconds to breathe and make substitutions every couple of plays.

    I actually don't have a problem with faking an injury against UP TEMPO offenses. I think their game plan sort of pushes the sportsmanship envelope, so faking a defensive injury seems reasonable. You pay the price, the player has to come off for that play (of course, that may be what they wanted anyway). Regardless, if you aren't good enough to line up and execute your play when the other guy is ready, then you don't have room to complain. IMO.

    Even in the NFL it happens. If we were to do it, it wouldn't bother me. Everyone did it against Oregon last year. No need to start a thread over this.
