    Franklin accuses UGA players of ripping off his helmet (helmet rule)

    James Franklin had to leave the Missouri football team's 41-20 loss to seventh-ranked Georgia because of the NCAA's new helmet rule was the result of a Georgia player ripping it off his head, the quarterback said yesterday. On MU's third series of the fourth quarter, Franklin went down in the backfield when nose tackle John Jenkins dropped him for a 2-yard loss. As Franklin fell to the turf, another Bulldog snapped off his chinstrap and yanked off his helmet, Franklin said.


    “The second time I could feel it, but you could also see on film where (a Georgia player) was pulling on it. It definitely was frustrating. You try to make adjustments so they couldn’t just pop it off. They say if they see a player intentionally pull it off you won’t have to come out. But I think teams will definitely try to do that more.”

    Outspoken Mizzou receiver TJ Moe made his feelings on the new rule known to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

    “It’s a stupid rule that will be gone after this season. Stupidest rule ever in college football. If my quarterback leaves the game one more time because his helmet is ripped off, I’m going to lose it.”


    Missouri Coach Gary Pinkel stopped short of accusing the Bulldogs but left no one else to blame.

    "I'm sure our players didn't take it off," he said. "And I'm sure he didn't take it off. So, it just happened. … Every single time his chinstrap was snapped off. It didn't just slide off."




    CRAMPING THEIR STYLE?: That wasn't the only ploy Missouri suspected Georgia was trying. In the third quarter, Washington tried jogging off the field and abruptly fell to the turf with an apparent leg cramp. Or was it?

    The Tigers had gone to a faster pace and gained 51 yards on the previous five plays.

    Georgia trainers tended to Washington and helped him to the sideline, but he eventually returned to the field. The Tigers couldn't recapture their momentum and settled for a field goal.



    "We're going to start sending a 500-pack of Gatorade to all the other teams right before we play them so there's no excuse for cramping," Moe said, clearly joking about the proposal but not the accusation.

    What's the point of saying things like this? It won't change the outcome of the game. It can only make them look like sore losers.

    I don't know why we would want Franklin off the field. We were killing him. Didn't he run it 22 times for 35 yards?

    Re: Franklin accuses UGA players of ripping off his helmet (helmet rule)

    If Franklin's helmet was ripped off, its an officiating mistake if he was forced to miss a play. From my understanding, the rules are if a helmet comes off during a play the player will miss a play, but if your helmet is ripped off by another player you are not forced to miss a play. Is that accurate?

    I dont understand the whining over the cramps either. Unless you can prove at the time that those players were faking, you look like an ******* for booing or insinuating anything because the one time that you try that and a player is really hurt you look like the ultimate *******. Oregon has been dealing with it for years, its just the nature of the beast. Officials can call delay of game penalties, blame them for not stopping those "fake" injuries. Its not something that I like, taking a dive to slow down a fast offense, but its part of the game and you should be able to work around that if you are a fast, no huddle team.

    Re: Franklin accuses UGA players of ripping off his helmet (helmet rule)

    I've already looked over this and it is pretty easy to see that no UGA player ripped his helmet off. Whether his is just misremembering or lying I'll leave up to you to decide, but the two incidents are at 12:40 and at 2:28:40.



    The first time is the only time it would even be a chance, but you can see that when Shawn Williams hits him, it knocks the helmet loose and then it comes off as he goes to the ground, but it doesn't appear anyone ripped it off and I think the ref would have seen it if it had happened. As for the second time, it is pretty obvious that it didn't happen there.

    And I am compelled to point out that the most obvious time the Mizzou fans thought a UGA player was "faking" being hurt (Corn Wash), it turned out he was ACTUALLY hurt. It was announced at Monday's practice he has a strained hamstring.

    I don't know whether or not this is true, but it is definitely happening a lot. If you watch replays as well you can see some players trying to do it.

    Our players thought Michigan guys were trying to pull their helmets off (one time they were a little too obvious with it and got flagged)... they didn't go public with it though. It's going to happen, players are going to try and knock helmets off. Strap up and be prepared.
