A picture is worth a thousand misleading words

There is a picture in today's online Tulsa World of OU's Auston English laying on Colt McCoy.

The captions says OU's Auston English (33) knocks Texas quarterback Colt McCoy into the grass during their football game in the Cotton Bowl.

It didn't happen last year because English never got close enough to McCoy (or anyone else for that matter) to knock him down.

It happened in 2007, and it was a late hit that should have been flagged.

Interesting that the newspaper would use a clear example of a late hit in a story without identifying it as such. And they can't plead ignorance because they know what happened on that play.

I guess they're taking their cues from the football and basketball teams. If you don't get called on it, you didn't do anything wrong.
