When a team is paid $325,000 to roll over and play dead for a national powerhouse before conference play begins, they don’t have to literally roll over and play dead. Stephen F. Austin knew they didn’t stand a chance at knocking off Texas A&M, which is why they were given an absurd amount of money to match up with them. However, you can’t say they didn’t do their best to try to slow down the Aggies offense on Saturday. Here’s a hilarious video of Stephen F. Austin players faking injury to slow down Texas A&M via Sports by Brooks:
The fact that you can tell “injury fake” was an actual play called from the sidelines makes the scene that much better. It’d be one thing if the players thought of it on their own, but you can see them looking attentively to the sideline before flopping to the ground like fish out of water. Valiant effort.
