    Easy to apologize after the fact. He was guilty of a cheap shot, or else he wouldn't be suspended. Genius.

    Yep, he surely is.

    "I want to apologize to Duke's Conner Vernon for running into him during Saturday's game," Rashad said in a statement. "I was in a hurry to get on the field and focused on where I was going. I have been playing football for most of my life and I have never been involved in that type of incident. I did not mean to run into him and I'm glad he was not hurt. He's a great receiver and I wish him the best."

    it's too bad all the area programs don't have this calibre person on their squads, at every position. He manned up and took responsibility for something he wasn't even guilty of. Very honorable for a young freshman who made a mistake.

    The Carolina Way.

    Take a look at the 1:10 mark of the video. He's happy about it!

    I played plenty of organized sports and never ran into an opposing player the way he did. Since the league gave him a one game suspension I would guess they do not agree with you.

    Agreed - both players' actions should be reviewed and delt with.

    Had the receiver not moved his back leg back at the very last second, he wouldn't have tripped up the player running into the game. This is very obvious when the replay is watched on Youtube. Some apparently refuse to watch it, so they can keep on hating like they enjoy doing. The league office will make the right call, we are confident.

    You've never played much sports before, we're guessing? Stuff happens sometimes.

  • Just.B.Cause Oct 22, 2012

    ^ Yeah because it is a common occurence for a defensive substitution to "trip" over a receiver getting into position. If he did not run into him on purpose then he needs to be labeled as too dumb to figure out how to run around a receiver taking up one square yard within an entire football field.

    Defensive substitutions have been figuring it out for years...how come this guy couldn't?

    Nah.

    Receiver backed his leg into his path, causing the collision. The league officials will quickly see this and dismiss it as they should.

    Any idjit can see it, if any idjit wants to watch the replay on Youtube.

    I understand your hesitance to do so, however.

    Continue hating. LOL!

    This was absolutely reprehensible behavior and should not be tolerated by anyone, at any time, for any reason. Extremely unsportsmanlike conduct and reflects VERY poorly on UNC... not just the , Shakeel Rashad. UNC, itself, should take action against Rashad for dishonoring the team AND the school. Think how disgraceful the sport would be if all players behaved that way. It was an example of deplorable sportsmanship, should be recognized as such, and Rashad should be punished. It sets a very poor model for behavior and doesn't belong in the honorable sport of football.

    The announcers had not yet seen the replay and notice that Vernon STUCK HIS LEG OUT and that's why he got tripped. He acted like he broke his leg and was back out there one play later. TYPICAL DUKE FLOPPING!!!

    Not sure, but could be he was getting in his stance to start running at the snap of the ball. I may be wrong, but don't most WRs do that to get a jump on the snap?

    Shakeel Rashad is the type of player Larry Fedora is recruiting and building around??? What happened to UNC trying to restore "integrity"?

    The State 'penalty' nearly cost NCSU the game. We were destroying the offensive line of Maryland and had taken control of the game. Then we forced them into an option game and when that occured, the offensive line didn't have to pass protect.

    But as far as 5-10 yards behind Amerson, I don't recall that. I'll have to find it on youtube.

    Now for the UNC play, are you KIDDING me? He dropped his shoulder into the WR's back! Granted, the WR may have taken a class at UNC that Hansbrough was teaching, but it was clearly at the very least a penalty. The UNC player was even slapping his teammates hands afterwards for 'job well done'!

    well there you go, we just found out why UNC lost. Everybody go home, take this win off the board..... UNC lost "Action" Jackson the 3 time All Americain and it opened up the flood gates for Duke. Duke should be ashamed they palyed this one out.....tisk tisk tisk.

    no doubt, but that didn't make it a clip.

    in fact, nothing about it did.

    It was a bad choice for State to try and block a man 5-10 yards behind Amerson. Had he not done so, Amerson has a TD.

    And unlike Vernon, Jackson did NOT return the next play. Big difference!

    you mean it was a bad call???

    agreed.

  • DooksucksV3 Oct 22, 2012

    It reminded me of the illegal hit by State on Maryland QB Perry Hills on the interception that caused Amerson's TD to be called back.

    Dook was the one head hunting in retaliation.

    They had to take out one of our DT's so that they could run the ball.

    I guess we know now that Dook had to cheat to win.

  • DooksucksV3 Oct 22, 2012

    They need to investigate and suspend the Dook lineman who intentionally took out our player:

    Shakeel Rashad will be suspended at least 1 game. Save this thread Silent Sam, I sure will.

  • Coach Doherty Oct 22, 2012

    UNC trying to take out another player..........it's called head hunting and is considered cheating, ask New Orleans. But since this is considered cheating it will not matter at UNC so move on. They don't care, so why do you?

    If it was that simple, the ACC would not be reviewing it.

    What? I thought the collision occurred because Conner Vernon stepped back into his path and the innocent, model citizen UNC football player couldn't stop himself in time? They should be investigating Vernon for the illegal "step back". Doesn't that usual result in a 15 yarder?

  • SilentSam Oct 22, 2012

    HA HA HA h ha HA HA ha HA!

    Anyone can review it on Youtube.

    Anyone (but dookies with tears in their eyes) can see that the receiver backed his foot up into the path of the oncoming UNC player at the last second, causing the collision.

    No call, no foul, and rightfully so.

  • kmor2012 Oct 22, 2012

    "It's clearly intentional," the commentator said. "There's no chance that he doesn't see Conner Vernon. I'm surprised that wasn't flagged. Look, if Shakeel Rashad can't see, we've got to get his peripheral vision checked. There's no chance that you can play linebacker in the ACC if you can't see a guy just standing there."

    The ACC could potentially dole out a fine or suspend Rashad after viewing the film. Doug Rhoads, the ACC coordinator of football officials, was in the Wallace Wade press box Saturday night and went into a room to watch a replay after the collision occurred.
