Renner said after the game that he wasn't given tests like he was a year ago, when he suffered a mild concussion against N.C. State. The sideline reporter on the ESPN3 broadcast said Renner passed his tests, including reciting the months of the year backward. UNC coach Larry Fedora said after halftime that he thought Renner "was fine."
The team mentioned in the days following that Renner had the wind knocked out of him and was never hit in the head on the play, but Fedora said during the ACC teleconference that Renner went through the tests and was aware. And now Renner has claimed he passed two tests -- one after the play and one after the half.
Something isn't right here.
