I understand why people are upset, but lets get real here. When you played football growing up, and were learning the fundamentals, what you see on TV is NOT what you were taught. Its not even close a form fundamentally sound tackle. It gets you hits on youtube, and people go OHHHHHHHH which is why its popular.

the targeting rule will be modified...I hope. when they do the review and find that it was NOT a targeting foul, then they should take away the corresponding fifteen yard penalty. that only makes sense. the ncaa needs to make a ruling on this asap.

The concept is not a bad one. The execution is. This rule is 100% legitimate if they simply reverse the ejection AND the penalty.

Im all for players safety, but if you can review and overturn throwing a player out for targeting then you should take the penalty away. Plain and simple. This off-season many people will be pushing this as it will be a topic for discussion everywhere in college football.

Yeah the rule itself is a good thing. However, the practice of implementing it is what everyone hates. Like Saturday....how can you review the film, decide there was no targeting, yet STILL give them a 15 yard penalty. I just don't see how you can call a penalty, when you have looked at the video and determined that no penalty occured.

I can understand the leading with the head or hitting in the head, but if a receiver is going across the middle, you should be able to light him up. Its football. As for the rule reviewing the expulsion but not the flag -that's crap.

Whatever I was taught as a DB to kill the man with the ball and break up the play by any means necessary so he doesn't catch it. Targeting penalty is bullshit and so is football if these rules keep coming.

Then you were taught incorrectly. Not your fault...just didn't have a coach that cared for your safety

For someone who was never taught what is the right way vs the wrong way? I figure hitting a we your goal is to make it an incomplete pass or a fumble so you hit as hard as possible. With what seems to be the point of contention I guess.

You never lead with your head, especially with the crown down. Sure, hit as hard as you want with the shoulder, as Williams did. His was a good hit

The force of the blow matters, but is secondary to the accuracy and technique involved.

For example, Clowney's hit on Smith during the bowl game last year, while incredibly forceful, was only successful because of techniques and accuracy. If he had flown in out of control and only looking to lay the wood, like we see so often lately, then there is the possibility that there is no fumble and Smith is able to spin off of the hit (all hypothetical, of course). This didn't happen specifically because JD got low, put his facemask in the numbers, and wrapped up under the thighs.

That said, the current method of officiating the targeting rule is asinine in my opinion.

The problem is really on both sides of the ball. People's reaction now is to lower their head. If you look at footage back in the day ... nobody lowered their head. You get a harder hit going in with your shoulder than you do your head, so leading with the head is just dumb.

Look at Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker, OJ Simpson, The Bus or any of the other great backs that ran people over. They ALWAYS led with the shoulder and ran over the defender. The head lowering got started because people weren't strong enough to run somebody over, so they try to get the pain of the helmet hit to plow through the tackle.
