Vanderbilt's John Jenkins shot an air ball in the final minute of Tuesday's 65-61 overtime loss at Florida.
Or did he?
"He doesn't shoot many air balls," said Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings. "I've watched him play for a long time and I haven't seen many air balls come off that kid's hand."
In other words, Stallings thought Kenny Boynton fouled Jenkins.
He didn't say that, exactly.
But he hinted it.
"I'm pretty sure there was a reason there was an air ball," Stallings said, and I have no idea if these comments will draw the ire of the SEC office. But if Stallings does get a phone call, he should advise the league to ring Boynton. Oddly (and admirably), the so-called offender acknowledged the uncalled foul.
"I think I jumped too high and he kind of tried to draw it," Boynton said. "It was a foul, but they missed it."
