Why would someone do that to them self? Ummm.....maybe to try and draw a flagrant foul and break up the momentum that was building for MSU and specifically Nix. Why do some people blow them self up?
Probably someone who watched Nix get two baskets on the other end and wanted him out of the game before another dump into the post/basket ended it.
Asking why Zeller would try to get himself punched in the nuts is just as unanswerable as asking why Nix would throw a cheap shot after humiliating Indiana inside the last two times down the court and after MSU had taken the lead. Neither question can be answered concretely. To "pick a side" and think that was definitely what happened after listening to both accounts is simply guesswork or spin and nothing else. The fact that people are trying to use video and make it fact is wrong and frankly just makes the situation worse.

Why would someone turn and whine to the ref IMMEDIATELY after it happened. Nix got knocked in the rocks earlier in the game. Did he turn and ask for a foul? No, he was writhing in pain.
One thing I haven't seen mentioned on this is that if Nix had initiated the movement to hit Zeller in the nuts and was not pulled, then his arm would have created some separation from Zeller's hand which clearly doesn't happen. Zeller's hand never leaves Nix's arm which indicates that he was pulling.
Nix's wrist also flexes away from Zeller when the motion starts, as though his arm is being pulled from above the elbow.
Crime solved...we could be detectives.
Put us on the payroll.
How much of a factor does race play in how he formulates his opinion. He saw the video and still posted that.
Best way to do it
It's been two days... the replay was shown live during the Tuesday game
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
If this had to do with race Jemele Hill and Jason Whitlock would already have 1,200 word columns out on it.
Zellers play was dirty it still blows my mind he got a pass for a cocked elbow to Nixs nuts. I really do think this is about race and class.
Has anyone called out zeller in the media? 0
And nix is the chump of the week? Sheesh.
He's been a douche for years. Now we know it wasn't just at the behest of ESPiN, its the way he's wired.
If the man dislikes black people he sure picked the wrong sport to cover. Forde has this one wrong, but I doubt he is racist.
They should. Assuming nix hit him in the nuts two equal crimes how come only one is expected to do the time?
My latest tweet:
@gHostRCMB: @YahooForde @mikegriffith32 Forde is a racist - yeah blame the BLACK GUY... Trollnalism at its finest, well done boner

It was one of the few things Teddy Valentine has ever gotten right when given a chance for a review and more tv time.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
THIS TIMES A FUCKING TRILLION.......we are literally slaughtered in the media year after year all while scum, o$u, and $ec teams do shit that is way fucking worse. It gets old after awhile.
To die in ann arbor is redundant
Shit happens in a contact sport. Nobody likes getting hit in the nuts but god what a non-issue.
This country was built by people who worked hard then went home and had just a few too many every night. Then went back to work.
hash it with #RacistPatForde
Forde wilk respond:
"Yeah blame the guy with the huge nose. That's discrimination"
Ask him why he doesn't have the Balls to say the same about zeller elbowing nix in the balls.
I love that the slickster is tweeting him. Wish that guy would come back.
sick em guys...
