    Because feigning injury to get time to rest is such a great display of sportsmanship. Especially in a sport where using your endurance is a weapon.

    This could be true. It looked that way but you don't always know for sure. People said the same thing about Jay Cutler.

    I was only commenting upon what the B10 actions about JRob's statement. Whether Frank took a lung time out is really the subject of another thread. It wouldn't be the 1st time nor the last. FB players do it all the time, suddenly having an injury, so as to get a TO without costing the team one of their 3.

    I love the information, news and opinions etc on TWT. But why do we have to keep attacking people?

    It is directly related to this topic because it is in reference to what J Rob said about Frank and Cael.

    It might be related but it is still separate. JRob could have made his case in a way that did not act as a personal insult as far as I can deduce from the B10 office's viewpoint.

    The facts are that FM did take a lunger, CS didnt make him get back to the middle and wrestle and JRob called CS out for it. No big deal, just one coach calling another out for obvious cheating. Happens all the time in athletics, expecially when the cheating is as obvious as it was in this case.

    As far as The Big Ten is concerned, they were just acting pollitically and covering their own ass. They could really care less about the situation. In fact they probably wish it would go on more to spurr interest.

    [QUOTE=rstrong;390257]I've seen John Smith rush one of his lung TO wrestlers back to the mat in about 10 seconds when he realizes there's no real injury/QUOTE]

    Yeah, but not when Johnny Thompson was getting whupped by Ryan Lewis and needed a lunger to catch his breath and stop the match momentum.
