Default Scandalous Late Hit

Over at the Pats board a few of us were talking about the injury to Big Ben - here is some very recent footage of a Boston College football game.

This clip shows one of the most underhand, disgraceful pieces of action to take part on a football field.

Umm.... what were the refs looking at? That guy should have been tossed out of that game! Who would blame the guy from Boston College for going after him. The guy from Virginia pulled a extremely cheap shot. He should have been ejected and suspended. No need to try and injury people like that.

Yeah that was pretty nasty. especially when yoiu can ruin a guys career going after someones knee like that. This thing had to be reviewed I would think and that guy from Virginia should have been punished for it.

It looked like there was one official standing right in front of the incident when it happened.

The NCAA needs to make an example of Butler from UVA as far as a fitting punishment and that officiating crew looks like they're ready for the NFL as bad as they missed that call.

Did a little search in google and came across this.

Boston College football star Mathias Kiwanuka, injured last weekend against Virginia, has a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee. An MRI revealed the injury Tuesday, and Kiwanuka is very doubtful for the 14th-ranked Eagles' game against ACC foe Wake Forest on Saturday at Chestnut Hill, Mass.

"I don't have a lot of hope right now," BC's Tom O'Brien said on yesterday's ACC coaches' teleconference.

A 6-7, 261-pound senior who in July was voted the ACC's preseason player of the year, Kiwanuka hurt his right leg in the first half of BC's win over U.Va. at Alumni Stadium. He was injured again in the third quarter, this time on an illegal block by Cavaliers offensive tackle Brad Butler, who dived into Kiwanuka's right knee from behind after the whistle had blown.

Later in the quarter, Kiwanuka was ejected for punching Butler in the head.

Asked yesterday at Boston College if his sprained MCL was the direct result of Butler's cut block, Kiwanuka told reporters, "I'm not sure. I felt like a little bit of pain in both my ankle and my knee after I went out of the game [in the first half], so I put the knee brace on. But obviously after the hit, it hurt a little bit more, so I don't know exactly where it came from."

U.Va. announced Monday that it had suspended Butler for Saturday's game against fourth-ranked Florida State in Charlottesville.

"I just feel there's nothing that could've satisfied me with the way things came out," Kiwanuka told reporters when asked about Butler's punishment.

"Looking at it, if this was a professional game, a lot stronger action would've been taken. But I'm just trying to put the rest of it behind me now."

Once he finally saw a videotape of the incident, Kiwanuka said, it "shocked me that someone would actually do that."

A Boston College spokesman mistakenly told reporters Tuesday that Butler had called Kiwanuka to discuss the incident. Yesterday, Kiwanuka said he'd yet to receive an apology from Butler or anyone at U.Va.

Cavaliers coach Al Groh, who spoke with O'Brien on Monday, said they agreed to leave the "matter in the hands of the two players."

Kiwanuka told reporters that if Butler calls, "I'll field the call. I'm not going to try to keep things going longer than they have to be. If that's what he wants to do, if he wants to call and he wants to apologize, I'll take his apology. But I'm not going to go out of my way to get in contact with him."

BC offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood said yesterday that he believes Butler should have apologized to Kiwanuka.

"Yeah, I guess if I was cheap enough to do that, I guess I'd want to be a man and say I'm sorry about it," Trueblood told reporters.


So I guess one game is better than nothing. To me he deserves more. Very Very cheap shot.

Kiwanuka has a very nasty mouth on him and he's been quite disrespectful to other teams throughout his college career. This, of course, does not justify what was clearly a cheap shot and I still don't understand why that guy wasn't ejected immediately from the game. But it does make me wonder what provoked him...
