......Except that it is not new, and certainly not great. Who invented THE FLOP? I think I noticed the perfection and use of "taking the charge", with a bit of theatrical flop with UNC teams either in the late 70s or early 80s. The perfected it to an art form then, and had obliging referees. I did not care for it then, nor do I like it any better now. Personally, I think it takes away from the game with a staged, cheap acrobatic fall. Our recent game with Tennessee is a case in point. Our 178 lb (soaking wet) A J Lawson was called for knocking 212 lb, 6'9" John Fulkerson to the floor on his can, with a magnificent flop which defied the laws of physics, and made the referee the MVP of the game in the final seconds for the 1 point win. Why can't the referees ignore it when they see it? Forgive my rant. That is all.
