Video Proof Cal Faked Injuries Against Oregon Based on Coach’s Directions
Oregon squeaked by Cal on Saturday in Berkeley, getting shutdown offensively for the first time all season.

You figure they had to be playing dirty to hold down Oregon’s offense given that they allowed 52 points to Nevada and 48 to USC.
Well luckily for us YouTube user Russell Arch put together this excellent video which shows a Cal player faking an injury after getting instructed by his coaches to do so:
Many thanks to The Big Lead for sharing the video. Next time I want to see referees putting a stop to those shenanigans — there is no place for bullcrap like that in college football. If you want to stop someone, do it legitimately.
