usernameguy: Brad Roby just got ejected for turning himself into a human missile.

Oh, and Iowa's leading and marching down the field again, GO HAWKS!


Oh ya, we are going for the Hawks too here. Obviously it's great to see Ohio State lose (because we are Badgers fans) but we also know a kid on the Hawkeyes roster, and hope he has a chance to play.

I do think the SEC middle/lower class have been pretty weak the last few years.  And even the top teams this year are showing some cracks.


I believe that you are mistaken as ESPN as reassured me that the SEC is greater than any football team in the history of the world

And now a blocked punt safety.

This is two bad football teams.


Jim Traber is going to go ballistic after this game.

Dropped Dagron on 4th down and the Buckeyes will have to stop Iowa...good luck.
 
2013-10-19 04:55:58 PM
Here are a couple of GIFs of the Bradley Roby ejection.

The actual targeting rule reads as follows:
No player shall target and initiate contact vs. opponent with the crown of his helmet.
No player shall target and initiate contact to the head or neck area of a defenseless opponent
 

I don't think this was a good call by the official

elguerodiablo: Bet Spurrier wishes he kept those 2 timeouts he burned farking around.  What an asshole.


Over_Zealously_Apathetic: Nice work, Spurrier.

/Hahahaha


We just finished watching the game (the Mrs. is a USC grad), and WTF was Spurrier thinking? Doing it once was kinda dumb, but there was a slim chance it would have paid off if they caught TEN sleeping...but twice? Absolutely defies logic in a close game where the clock is everything. I wonder if any of the writers will have the stones to call him on it in the postgame Q&A.

At full speed, I don't see how they could not call it. It's a bit less clear cut in the opposite angle shot, but could be shoulder or head, can't really tell. At any rate, it's still stupid to launch yourself head first into somebody.

Agreed, and after looking at the second gif, it does look like helmet to helmet, but just barely.  Still after looking at it repeatedly, I have to say you are right.

The problem is that it's a rule based on intent.  My interpretation of that play is that the player was not targeting.  It seemed clear to me that he was leading with his shoulder and the helmet-to-helmet contact was incidental.  But I don't know that, and neither do the refs.  But the refs are required to discern the intent of the player and if he was leading with his helmet or shoulder.  It's really tough to make that call, though, as we've been seeing all day.

The way I look at it, if you've got a penalty that's being overturned nearly half the time it seems (though I'd love somebody to get the exact numbers), the problem isn't the officials, it's the penalty.

What did they do with the Reggie Bush trophy after they took it away from him?

I bet they turned it into some kind of elaborate Sacco trophy for the loser of the NYAC fantasy league.

I think so, too.  But you can't deny that there's helmet-to-helmet contact.  The question is, was it purposeful "targeting" or incidental contact.  I'd argue the latter, but we can't know for certain.

Maybe the problem is that the officials have been told to to err on the side of targeting instead of the side of incidental contact.  I don't know.

bluorangefyre: bluorangefyre: Florida Shiat University does not matter, especially since their a-hole of a former coach was handed a record he damn sure didn't deserve.  Of course if Clemson is predicted to absolutely deestroy FSU, then it matters as I like to watch them be humiliated in front of a live national audience.

/Gators fan


LOLOLOL.  Nice game today!

Regardless of the outcome against Clemson, you should probably cancel the trailer park jamboree because FSU will beat the gates like an old woman.

Bschott007: I think they made the wrong call on this one.


Watching the gif, he seemed to lead with his shoulder, but the problem is that he launched himself high and made no effort to actually tackle the receiver, he was just going for the big hit. The way the receiver turned, the helmet got there first. That's going to be called every single time, because there was no reason for him to launch himself like that...if he had his arms out trying to make the tackle, I'll bet the call would have been overturned.

The NDSU Bison have not lost a road game since the playoffs in Eastern Washinton on 12/11/2010 


Thinking back to that Eastern Washington game, a white hot rage comes over me. The phantom personal foul that stalled our drive late in the 4th that gave EWU the ball back. Then, the fumble call upheld AFTER review when video evidence showed Jensen was down prior to the fumble.

Clearly I haven't let this go....

It's a dumb penalty. It's a physical game, and while I understand that there's a huge risk of concussions, well... that's the nature of the beast. I don't think any of these guys are adjusting their heads to put the hurt on another player.
