How many flop warnings has Joe gotten this year? One? Two? And last night was not a flop. Paulus was famous for flopping because at times he wouldn’t even be touched and his flops were numerous. It’s amazing that people can watch the replay, see it was clearly a foul and it was called, and still find blame with the SU player. People are complaining about the “flop” more than the shot to the face 10 seconds prior that was also a clear foul but not called.
Yeah, my post was in some ways an attempt to be somewhat humorous, hence the smiley emoji inserted at the post's end. Some of you are seemingly way overly sensitive, etc. nowadays.
Look, it's simply my opinion that on this specific
foul, Joe's reaction was a bit over the top and on the extreme side based upon the actual/true cause and effec
t. No doubt, the State player extended his arm, and the offensive was called, that's not being disputed, but it wasn't with the amount of force, IMO, (not to mention the specific contact area) for Joe's head to snap back in the violent way in which it did.
Again, IMO, some pretty good dramatics by Joe in that instance. I know SU has a really good theater school, I think Joe may have taken some elective classes there.
