TexasTech notes: Brown implies opponents faking injuries to foil NASCAR

Tech notes: Brown implies opponents faking injuries to foil NASCAR
By Don Williams on October 17th, 2010

Texas Tech offensive coordinator Neal Brown implied Sunday that recent Tech opponents have been faking physical problems to disrupt the pace of the Red Raiders’ offense.

“The last three weeks, it seems like we’ve had a lot of injuries on the other teams,” Brown said. “It’s amazing. They fall down, then they cramp up and all of a sudden, 30 seconds later, they jog off. It seems like that’s happened a lot the last three weeks.”

Tech likes to go to a hurry-up, no-huddle offense at different stages of a game. The idea is to run as many plays as possible and challenge a defense’s conditioning and ability to substitute.

Asked if he encountered opposing defensive players feigning injuries when he coached at Troy, Brown said, “Not really. Maybe they’re coached better to do it in the Big 12. I can’t say we’ve never seen it. I don’t think it’s real ethical. … My question is, somebody’s telling them to do it. I doubt the kids are smart enough to figure that out.”

Brown said he didn’t want to sound like he was making excuses for the Raiders’ ineffective start on offense Saturday.

“Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want to blow it out of proportion,” he said. “That’s not the reason we had several three-and-outs to start the game. But they’re trying to kill our rhythm.”

Brown says Potts OK
