You do realize College ball is a sham and NCAA does it's best to rig it, right?

They put more effort going after Auburn, whose biggest crime was beating a team paid for by Nike for the championship, than going after a college that had been protecting a child rapist for decades.

Do not hit with the helmet.  Is that too difficult to understand.

it's not dont lead with the the helmet, or don't hit helmet-to-helmet, it's "DON'T HIT WITH THE HELMET". "DON'T MAKE CONTACT ABOVE THE SHOULDER"

The NCAA has defined the rules clearly. Officials will look for players who initiate above-the-shoulder contact with a defenseless player using the crown of their helmet, forearm, elbow or shoulder. An emphasis is being put on players who launch themselves, thrusting upward or leaving their feet to hit the head or neck.

Helmet-to-helmet is an ejection. Hitting with/to the helmet is a roughness penalty. You wouldn't lead with your head, don't lead with your helmet. Use your pads.

Learn to tackle.

Bad call, it looked like a completely legal hit.  He led with his shoulder, not his helmet, and he hit him right in the chest where he's supposed to.  The refs overreacted.

clancifer: Personal foul like that and Bell should be out for the remainder of the game, and perhaps the next few.  That's how players get injured for life.


What, exactly, was the personal foul?  The guy was chasing the ball carrier, they were close to the ball, Bell got in a good shot to block...  I can't see that it was unnecessary roughness.  As a matter of fact, in the slo-mo, it looked to me like the defensive player took a dive.  Probably played alot of soccer in high school.

Fark it.  Corruption won't bring down football - it will be pansy-ass snowflakes who went through their school days wrapped in bubble wrap and can not believe someone would hit them.  And their helicopter parents who sue the school on their behalf, because they chose to participate in a dangerous sport.

It would've been legit if it hadn't been helmet to helmet. Incidental or leading with the helmet, it's still a penalty.

ITT: People who don't play any sports claim their favorite sport (a sport they don't play) is being ruined.

Benevolent Misanthrope: If someone chooses to play a dangerous sport, though, they should not be surprised when they get hit. And if you play college football, you sure as hell should not be surprised when you get hit.


Step 1: "ALL THE ATHLETES SHOULD GO TO FOUR YEARS OF COLLEGE BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR THEMSELVES"
Step 2: Players pursue a dangerous sport, whether by own choice or by parents shuffling them into the sport, sometimes against their own will.
Step 3: "WELL THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER WHEN THEY DECIDED TO TAKE UP FOOTBALL"
Step 4: lol

But, but, but ... that hit looked awfully vicious.  It sent chills down the spine of anyone who watched it.  Because, it's all about what things look and feel like, not what's legal and illegal.

Holy farking cum sucking christ that was a HORRIBLE call and part of the reason why I can barely even have football on the tv anymore.  The defender was like 2 steps behind the ball carrier and he got blocked.  farking penalty?  Eat a goddamn dick, modern football.

Well it's no longer allowed in the NFL either. Gotta get them used to the rules.

bronyaur1: Yes, because most rational parents want their kids engaging in activities that can injure them, with permanent brain damage as the major attraction.


Going outside is highly overrated.

Ummmm... yeah, they seem to.  School football is still popular in the US.  If I had kids, there's no way in hell I would allow them to play football.  It's a dangerous sport, and there's not a helmet or pads out there that can keep a kid's head and neck protected.  They can play other sports.

If someone chooses to play a dangerous sport, though, they should not be surprised when they get hit.  And if you play college football, you sure as hell should not be surprised when you get hit.

He should have run alongside him and asked him to kindly stop pursuing the ball carrier.

So, you really know absolutely nothing about football, correct?
