Monday update

The NCAA's Secretary-Rules Editor, Steve Shaw, on Monday offered a comment on the finish of the ASU-Troy game.

"From an officiating perspective, we have to respect the injury,” said Shaw, who is also the Sun Belt's coordinator of officials. “If there is anything considered inappropriate, the official will report it to the league.”

Shaw said no report was made regarding Troy’s final drive.

Troy does not release official injury reports, but Tevaris McCormick returned to play later in the drive, and Tray Eafford departed the stadium with a boot on his left foot.

Both LSU and Auburn are masters at faking injuries when the opponent is on a roll. There ought to be a penalty when it is so obvious.

I watched the game and I believe that the way Eafford got pulled down he probably was legitimately hurt, however, Mccormick's injury appeared to be staged. Welcome to big time college sports and the do-anything mentality to win, the NCAA needs to have a mandatory runoff for time with less than one minute to go in a game.

gohogs17, have any specifics on that? Sounds like you're just a sour grapes fan of a loser program.
