VIDEO: UNC's Shakeel Rashad's Cheap Shot On Duke WR

Intentional?

If you haven't seen it or read about it on Twitter, UNC linebacker Shakeel Rashad made a shady move on Duke WR Conner Vernon this past Saturday. During a substitution, Rashad gave Vernon a hard shoulder in the back. Here's the video:

The Twitterverse had a lot to say about the incident, but some have been particularly informative on the situation and Conner Vernon's status after the cheap shot. 

UNC head coach Larry Fedora is defending Rashad, saying that the hit was probably not intentional.

Unfortunately for Rashad and Fedora, the ACC reviewed the hit and does not agree. Rashad won't be seeing any play time in this week's game against NC State.
