If that wasn’t targeting by #20 for Oklahoma...

there has never been an instance of targeting in college football. Lowered the helmet, launched and made helmet to helmet contact with the crown... what more did the ref need to see??? How the heck do they miss that call?!!??

So you would rather the refs not make that call? Why? As OP stated; that was textbook and had the textbook result. The offensive player suffered a head injury.

because the targeting call has gotten out of control. there are hard hits in football. that was a football play. nothing the guy did was intentional. the are many targeting calls made on defensive players that are made from offensive guys lowering their head. the call has been taken to a place it should not have been taken. it has cost us at least 3 times this year.

I think there are some problems with the rule


Nov 23, 2018, 9:26 PM

But I think you are missing the point on this one.

This isn't about the fact that targeting is sometimes called on form tackles (helmet to helmet hits when the defender has his eyes up and their helmets happen to hit).

This is about teaching defenders not to lower their head, lead with their helmet, and instead keep their eyes up.

And they can do that. And it should be flagged when, because they didn't, they hit the offensive player in the head with their helmet.

I'm not even sure it wasnt intentional


Nov 23, 2018, 9:32 PM

Kinda looked to me like he sized him up and went head hunting.

I think the vast majority of targeting violations are incidental, but I'm not sure about this one...

While that may be true


Nov 23, 2018, 9:33 PM

It doesn't matter... the fact is the defender did not intentionally keep his head up to avoid that sort of hit.

THAT is what the rule is in place to enforce.

Never say you care about player safety and then miss that.

That was text book targeting. I can't believe replay never

The refs have been awful with the targeting rule lately. Big XII trying to protect their one team with a shot at the playoff.

Hate to agree with a dirtpecker, but if the rule means anything it should be strict in every situation so that guys won't push the envelope. I don't mind if it is called in close situations, if it is consistent, I am okay, it just never seems to be. If we don't get a handle on concussions, there will be no football in twenty years,

Our guy would have been disqualified before the whistle blew.

Simmons was called for targeting for touching dukes helmet.

Any other team and it would've been called. B12 trying to keep OK in the hunt for playoff. Horrible no call.
