And Iím not making an argument, just laying out objective facts, not matters in dispute, I get nostagia for the way things *used to be* but Iím not going to endorse lousy practices...in a bang/bang play, bang you were in and bang you are gone, sfw??

And, like, we know about CTE now, the good old days were not ambivalent to science, they just didnít have it, and btw, the rule is one reason a dad May let his kid play amateur football.

You guys sound like idiots regarding the targeting rule, and *intent* has nothing to do with it when the action alone was egregious, like the TLaw hit, I knew that guy was gone from the first replay.

They both should have been ejected so tOSU got off light IMO, other dude threw a punch...wtf?

Itís a good rule, helmet to helmet play is never, ever excusable, so dumb.

You guys, I thought, were better than that, so fucking dumb.

Shaddap.

The Earl Campbell/Jack Tatum collision is one of the best plays I've ever seen. Two men playing football. Hundreds, no, probably thousands of like hits throughout college football history. Never see that great stuff ever again.

Itís me tho, basically you are making the ďget off my lawnĒ/ďIn my day...Ē logical fallacy, they have known this rule since high school..., whatís your beef, professional boxers and UFC fighters make a professional decision to forego the risk, and so has the NFL which applies the rule tighter than NCAA imo, questioning ďtargetingĒ on the TLaw play *is* dumb, and I like you cap but your argument is flawed.

You donít like NCAA or NFL football donít watch it.

Thatís also a choice, but the idea these rules could be reversed is a non-starter...

The professional referee which Iím sure you categorize as an *apologist* was good enough for me and his logic was sound, good enough for me, and correct I thought.

If you think football should be played in a manner in which you can potentially end a players career, thatís sad, and you are detached from reality if you *argue* Tlaw lowered his head, go right ahead but Iíve seen the game 3-4 times including replay, and itís just not factual.

Making it a 15 yard penalty is condoning targeting, whatís your solution but the rule is clear and was correctly applied, say you donít like the rule and own it, and donít equivocate about whether itís a good call or not, just say:  ďI donít like the targeting ruleĒ and shut the fuck up, Iím sick of it.

Like Tlaw and Higgins almost got concussed anyway, why should you further subject them or a Heisman winner to playing a semi-final ď*Ē game??

The MacIlroy logic just means more teams get spiked in order to have a *true* #4:  dumb.

Unless there is a bye in the system, why should you have to play UGGA or ALA if they didnít win their Conference, and yeah there are 3 teams that by the end of the year weíre better than everybody else, that same logic means probably 3 of 4 teams probably get smoked in a quarterfinal game, itís bad tv, and you risk injuring the cream of the crop, and possibly render what theyíve done to that point meaningless.

When I watched it again, and tOSU went all in, and we threw to Etienne was, jeez, we just stole their Dobbins play that had fucked us, but there was nobody back just like we got burnt.

Iím not so much a  Dabo defender as I am amazed at what heís done and we donít share the same exact belief system, and you (not You) can think itís dumb, but we recruit Georgia (our last 2 #1 QB both rings...), Florida, and yes AL (#1 WR Ross), LA (#1, Etienne), down here Daboís thing is working for us and you (not You) can think his belief system is not what you prefer (me too), but it fucking works.

I just hope he stays away from LGBTQ community, because when I heard ďIím not a part of that because I refuse to be defined by my sexuality...Ē

So the latest thing is that you canít name even a preference, even though everyone has one, you just canít *say* it, so, same lens thru which I view atheists and Bible thumpers, whatever works for you...

For us??

We'll stick with Dabo for now.

Given that I spend an extraordinary amount of money for U of Michigan, there's no way I'm rooting for Ohio State. But there's equally no way that I'll root for Dabo.

Think of it as investing money, not spending it.

What's your beef with Dabo?  Besides, his name being Dabo.
"God's favor"  has nothing to do with winning college football games
Heard SWINEy on the.radio while waiting to exit. My son's response to his interview was, that's why we lost. God fucked us! Bastard.
Well, yes he needs Jesus in his life obvi.

Dabo may overdo some of the ďgod stuffĒ for this lapsed Baptist who struggles with issues of faith and organized religion, but let me say this:

I am not steeped in the culture of coaching theory but I know enough to know that coaching through love and accountability rather than fear and punishment, of positivity rather than blame, and creating a culture of brotherhood, while not novel, Iím sure, has been a very successful recruiting, coaching and leadership model for Clemson and itís author, one Dabo Swinney.

By the way, he is a loving father figure for many athletes who need that, whether itís a kid (the Safety that caught the game winning pick) who lost his father to ALS in 2016, who Dabo had known since he was a kid having played with his dad at ALA before dad went NFL.  The year prior Dabo had scholarship slots to fill he gave film of the unrecruited kid to Venables, and now, the rest is history.

Google Nolan Greenville News for full story...

...or an urban (black) kid with an incarcerated, absent, or dead father who needs a safe caring environment (not Miami) and some leadership and ďbrothersĒ with his best interest at heart, itís worked...

And call him a bible thumper and ridicule him for the all glory to god shitck (and I get it) but understand that he has created a culture of brotherhood and love that also happens to be the most dominant paradigm in college football at the moment. 

You can win other ways but he doesnít recruit talented 5* thugs or primadonnas, have at them the rest of you.

I donít think heís alone in his philosophy but I believe heís been revolutionary in creating results out of those simple, and yes, Christian, ideals.

So there is that, as cornpone as it is...
