Auburn’s Malzahn Says He’s Never Told A Player To Fake An Injury

If you happened to see this…

 

Auburn Linebacker Anthony Swain Fake Injury

 

… during Auburn’s 35-17 win at Arkansas on Saturday, you probably thought the same thing everyone else thought — linebacker Anthony Swain was faking an injury and he was coached to do so.  Arkansas had just converted a fourth-and-three play and would go on to cash in on the scoring drive, cutting into Auburn’s lead.

Not so according to AU coach Gus Malzahn:

 

“At the time I did not see it happen, but after watching the TV copy I could see why people questioned it.  I’ve coached for 23 years and I’ve never told any player to fake an injury…

I promise you this, moving forward there will be no questionable issues like that again.”

 

Pretty definitive.  No word, however, on whether Malzahn has ever told an assistant to tell a player to fake an injury.

Swain is expected to return from his “bruised knee” on Saturday when Auburn rolls into Tennessee with its top 10 record.

The idiots in this thread...

Swain did not return to the game. Also, why go down on a 1st and goal with seconds until the end of the quarter?

More than likely, Swain motioned that he was hurt and rather than him try to run off the field in time, the coach told him to drop.

It is common and it is the safe thing to do.

Malzahn is a liar.  Nothing new about this or any other coaches at Auburn.

Interesting that he said moving forward there would be no more questionable issues like that again. Huh? If the guy really was injured and fell to the ground, how in the world can that be prevented in the future? If he wasn't really hurt, well, then he just admitted the injury was a fake. Strange comment.

Isn't it interesting this "injury" happened just after Arkansas successfully ran the swinging gate play, the very play Bielema accused Auburn of editing out of its' game tapes supplied to Arkansas? I seriously doubt that this was just a coincidence on either coach's part.

Is it beyond possible that Malzahn had a player poorly fake an injury so as to make this an issue the SEC might be required to address? Which SEC coach has been most vocal about wanting faked injuries penalized? I seem to recall Auburn's coach being quite vocal about that issue in the past.
