Michigan Wolverines starting quarterback John O’Korn must take some acting classes at the University of Michigan. There was heavy rain in Ann Arbor, Michigan on Saturday night, but it appears that did not play a factor in O’Korn’s acting abilities.

O’Korn, who has been having a rough night, ended up on the Michigan State Spartans sidelines late in the game. At the moment in question, he was surrounded by Spartans players and coaches.

He then appeared to flop in an attempt to draw a penalty. And it actually worked.

The Spartans – or maybe a ghost, as we’re close to Halloween – were flagged on the penalty. For what? We don’t actually know, because it was clearly a flop.

Initially, it looked like O’Korn was pulled down from the back. But, the ABC cameras showed that O’Korn acted on the play despite an official being close by – and running it to throw the flag afterwards.

Before this game with the Spartans, O’Korn saw action in two games. However, in his first game of the season, he barely saw action against the Florida Gators in the season-opener.

He had 37 passing yards on one attempt against the Gators on September 2nd. Yet, he had 270 passing yards against the Purdue Boilermakers on September 23rd in a win.
