Shilique Calhoun: "Dirty play" threw me off at Nebraska

Recommended Posts

Poor baby. I don't want to hear it. After last year I don't care one little bit.

 

Yeah, I thought this was odd. Holding goes uncalled many times throughout a game, as does pass interference. I don't recall what hit he is talking about though with Nick Gates.

Call me a wambulance. Piss poor calling has plagued NU this whole year. The B1G refs are some of the worst I have seen this year. They lost, we won. Questionable calls all game. Great player, but diminishes when he complains. Just my .02

On the positive side: "Calhoun, who remains a half-sack behind Julian Peterson for No. 2 on the MSU career list, with 24 1/2, after his least impactful game of the season, vowed that he'll respond. He said Nebraska "has a great offensive line" but that MSU's defensive line must "get back there and create havoc."

If this is indeed the play, then just wow.....I know it's a bit late but to have something like that bother you the whole game? Maybe his quote was taken out of context

It's football. There's dirty hits and holds on every play. As a defensive lineman you have to be able to put up with that and battle through. No need for excuses.

It was late, but I'm sure it was not intentional. Dirty is a heavy charge. That was barely late, anyway. Seemed to happen as the whistle started blowing.

 

Now it makes more sense why the play-by-play guy was saying that Shilique is known to disappear from games. I thought that was crazy at the time, given the talent he is.

 

If you're happy and you know it, clap your ... oh, wait.

Love that play even if it is dirty. Put that boy in the dirt and show some nastiness and get in the heads of opposing players.

I don't know about dirty but Gates plays with some nastiness. I like it.

 

Banker was complaining about the lack of holding calls on MSU so the refs were letting things go in the trenches.

Ha ha! That's awesome. Gates manhandling one of the best DTs in the conference. I don't see where that play is overly dirty. It's a continuation of the play. Gates starts pushing Calhoun Heath to the ground as the runner gets tackled--or just a fraction of a second after the runner goes down. Pushing him to the ground for the second time, that is. Nice! :lol:

 

 

btw, Is that the play Calhoun Heath got hurt on? If so, that's unfortunate. There's some hard hitting going on in that play. Football is a rough game.

Oops. That's Joel Heath, not Shilique Calhoun.

Wasn't it just 2 or 3 years ago that MSU was widely known for dirty play that centered around Golston? Am I remembering that wrong?

Love reading the comments. "That was on 4th down on their final drive." Really? I don't think there was a fourth down on that last drive, was there?

 

 

Okay, that one snapshot looks dirty. But the Sparty players are floppers and actors. (Remember the Kenny Bell block?) You'd have to see the entire play to know how bad it really was.

Both teams complained about holding calls all night. The line is a tough spot for both sides. sh#t gets nasty. Deal with it.

I don't think the "headlock" play came on Nebraska's touchdown play. I wanted to see the whole play but haven't found it yet.

 

Maybe I will look later.

 

Anyhow, it could have been worse for this guy. He could have been Alonzo Moore.

Yeah, that's not a dirty hit. It is the play Joel Heath got hurt on though, so that's why he's saying it was dirty. It looks like a normal effort play to me. But it is too bad Heath got hurt. I never want to see players get hurt.

The commentators for the game also said how Calhoun seems to "dissappear"from games. Have to wonder once he gets that contract if he will be a bust. I'll go on record now and say he will fall in the draft because of effort issues and maybe some character red flags.

Being what most would consider a "Superstar" player I am sure he feels like he should get a few calls that go his way. Like the superstar BBall player trying to draw the foul and not getting it. He then whines about it.

 

With all that being said the refs weren't calling holding for what ever reason. There was only one holding in the game. He didn't play real well and he got owed by a RS Freshman tackle and a TE. He has to try and save face some way. I guess?

Did I suddenly stop understanding English? What the hell is he saying here? That a headlock affected him so badly that it threw off his game?


Are you freaking kidding me, Calhoun?


Jordan Westerkamp got his ass ground into the turf all game long. He didn't go cry to the press about how hurt he was, or use that as an excuse for not getting it done. All Westerkamp did was go out and beat that secondary - TWICE - on the game-winning drive. 61 yards on two receptions, and he got bashed on that second reception, really bad. Helmet to the chin (a penalty not called, Shilique). Your boy in the secondary tackled Westerkamp with his arm around Westy's neck, in a headlock.


So he took the rest of the game off, right Shilique? Had an excuse, right?


NOPE.


Westy was back in there on the two-point conversion attempt, diving for the ball. Giving it his all.


And as Westerkamp was taken off the field by the trainers after his umpteenth shot of the game, you know what he did? He pumped his fists to the crowd, saying, "C'mon! We're going to win this!"


Maybe he should have spent his time complaining about an arm around his neck on that tackle.


He just spent his time working.

yeah that one is called finishing the play imo. the headlock? that is called "oops"

His two pictures showing holding are of the same play, different angles. So, if he only has one example, that's far from dirty. Actually, we got a holding called on us earlier in the game, are we sure this wasn't flagged?

I've seen similar plays to this get flagged and when I saw it happen I was actually a bit surprised he got away with it. It was close enough to the play ending that the refs maybe thought it was the continuation of a block. Dirty? I don't think he meant to really hurt him. Late? I can see a real argument for that. The runner is down on the ground right in front of him, so I highly doubt he didn't know the play was over. IMHO he has to be a bitter than that.

What a load of crap.

 

This guy just needs to play better. Does he actually think that when he gets against other good programs a hold or two won't happen against him without a call? Welcome to playing defense.

I overreached like crazy on this video and a lot of the stuff didn't need to be in there, but they're hardly upstanding citizens of their own.

Maybe ol Calhoun needs to man up...cripes...just looks like a big baby. This video shows some pretty shady thongs done by MSU.

Cry to Jamele or Plax. Post a screenshot with the ref staring at Alonzo Moore's arm being held and no flag or the other crap calls/no-calls against NU in the same game.

 

No sympathy here for MSU, especially after Dantonio played off the clapping before his former player sells him out leading up to the NFL draft.

The picture he showed was an obvious hold. That happens. If guys are going to get away with holding, they will keep doing it. That is part of the game.

 

In terms of the injury. The video shown above is a cheap shot. That wasnt finishing off a block, that was blocking a guy after the run was completed when you werent already blocking. I agree, that was a late hit. I dont think it had any intention by Gates to cause any injury. It looks like more of a frustration yet zero intent behind it. The fact his leg was in a weird spot was too bad, but a block like that has little malice but is stupid because that is a fairly easy flag to throw if a ref is paying attention.

 

 

 

I do think those quotes from Calhoun can cause more issues for him in the future because if I am an NFL GM, i am worried if a guy is that easy to get mentally beat down. I would be highly concerned if a play like that can take a guy mentally out of a big game with his team fighting for a national championship run.

The commentators for the game -- mostly Brian Greise -- questioned the talents, the motives, the plays, the mechanics and the decisions of virtually everyone on either sideline.

I like me a bit of nasty in Husker players, but the stupid hits clearly after the whistle don't necessarily send a message. They give the other teams first downs they don't deserve and hurt the Huskers.

I don't see a thing wrong with any of it. In fact, I would like to see our linemen play like that all the time.

 

The block by Gates on Heath was just finishing the play. It was borderline late but I sure would rather have that than quitting too soon. There was no malice and it wasn't cheap. It is too bad that Heath's leg was in an awkward position and that he got hurt, but that's football.

 

The arm around the neck on Calhoun is laughable. There is the overriding rule of all sports, especially football; If the refs don't call it, it didn't happen. There are dozens of holds every game by either team that do not get called. There are penalties called that shouldn't be called. It's all just part of the game. Our guys must've been doing a hell of a job to get in Calhoun's head like that. I like it. I like it a lot.

Brian Griese was Michigan's QB in 1997 when they stole half the National Championship from Nebraska, and Michigan State is no longer UM's little brother. I bet Griese really loved calling this one. :thumbs
