Texas LB Edwin Freeman Does a Horrible Job of Faking an Injury Against California

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 2 months ago
It’s no secret defenses fake injuries when playing up-tempo offenses to get the necessary substitutions on the field or simply catch their breath before the next play. Against California, Texas linebacker Edwin Freeman appeared to be just fine after a play. However, all of a sudden, Freeman fell as if he was injured. Needless to say, this is a fake injury flop (and not a good one at...

UTSA Roadrunners vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys Preview and Prediction

By Jeremy Simon, 1 year 2 months ago
Oklahoma State has not exactly impressed in its first two games of the season. An 11-point victory over Central Michigan and 24-point victory over Central Arkansas has some wondering where the Cowboys' high-powered offense has gone. UTSA looked impressive in its opener against Arizona but took a step back last week against Kansas State. Make no mistake though, UTSA has not...
