Quinton Dial will be playing in the national title game. The hair the SEC split belonged to Aaron Murray:
Shaw, speaking today with the Smashmouth Radio Network on ESPN 97.3 The Zone in Birmingham, said the nature of the play was “very different” than the three that have resulted in one-game suspensions over the past two years.
“This was an interception return. The player being blocked, no question he was the quarterback, but if he moved to participate in the play, he’s a defender,” Shaw said. “From an officiating perspective, we had a missed call. There should have been a flag on the play for a personal foul, unnecessary roughness.”
The conference went on to say that all subsequent action will be handled internally by the two institutions. I guess Aaron will have to run stadium steps for letting himself be turned into a defender.
