The thing is that WRs push off all the time and it is seldom called. It would mess up their offense is everything mantra. Got to keep the masses showing up at the gates and the living rooms and bars. Money talks and defense walks. Don't touch that QB, don't touch that WR. Don't hit anyone.


Bitch game now of preening dickweeds.

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.
That Jack Tatum died young and Earl Campbell can barely walk is probably an argument that those that don't think that stuff was great can make.

Ali shook later on too. But he was the GREATEST.
And it's sad he's no longer with us.

Nobody lives forever. He earned his glory and legend. May he rest in piece.

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.

I like you too JB.

But don't tell me if I don't like it, it is their ball and go home.

I think football was a man's sport back in the day. Now it's a don't get hurt rules sport. Cover everyone in nerf and be done with it. Vegetarians are of the same ilk. Screw them I'm eating meat and I also want my football to be mean ass hard hitting.


Potentially? Every play is potentially career ending. Play real football. Eat real meat, fuck Burger King.

If you have been lucky enough to attend a Rose Bowl the view of the San Gabriel Mountains right now at about 5 pm PST is worth the trip alone.

Nice game Jim. Hope you had a good time. I especially liked the ending.

I wonder what Nick Saban said in the locker room at half-time. If anything.

Targeting rule morphs to other sports.

This just in, boxers will no longer be allowed to hit their opponents in the head.

UFC fighters will only be allowed to kick each other in the shins.

Ward got targeting because he lowered his head into contact. The right call, a stupid play that was more dangerous to himself than Lawrence
Lawerence is like 6í5Ē-6í6Ē and close to 250lbs. If he wants to run the ball then he takes the risks that running backs take every time they touch the ball. Besides, this targeting call is one of the biggest pieces of horseshit that they have come up with in many a year. A couple of guys in the replay booth are supposed to discern just exactly what a players intentions were when he moved his head a couple of inches up or down or left to right during a tackle? This is still football, right? Occasionally, it is evident that a person is taking a shot at an unprotected mans head. In that case they should march off a 15 yard penalty. But this bit about throwing a guy out out of the game, merely on the subjective opinion of the people in the replay booth sucks. They have already killed the kickoff as an exciting play in college football, now they want to turn hard hitting into a major foul? Well, I guess there is always flag football.
Intent is irrelevant for targeting. It is a prophylactic rule. You cannot make helmet to helmet contact, you cannot - as Ward did - hit with the crown of the helmet.

The rule in it's current form sucks dead donkey dick.
IT'S ITS GODDAMMIT NOT IT'S!

Id est quod est. It is the duty of the player to comply with the rules as they are. CTE is a real issue.
