once again I see a hard but clean hit and South Carolina gets 15 yds and a player kicked out of the game. On review they discover that the call was wrong and the player was allowed to return to the game but they still get the 15 yd penalty...even though they admit that it was a bad call....they really need to do something about this rule.
Kind of sounds like the call on Clinton-Dix of Bama in the A&M vs Bama game. If I'm a db, I don't know how to play the game anymore. It's almost if you have to let the receiver catch the ball, then tackle him, rather than try to hit him as the ball gets to him and prevent the catch.
It shouldn't be hard to distinguish between a good, clean hit and an instance where a guy is clearly leading with the crown of his helmet. I think the people who made up this rule didn't play the game, or if they did, they've forgotten what it's like. The way this penalty is called is making it impossible for defenses to cover and for db's to play aggressively.
The worst part is that they review the call and if they find that the player isn't guilty (as in the case today) of targeting they rescind the disqualification of the player but not the 15 yard penalty....it just makes no sense.
Keep preaching DC. Im with you all the way on these calls.
