    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.

    ^ 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?
