Clowney hit would receive ejection this year according to ACC official
In a meeting with the media this morning at the ACC Kickoff Doug Rhoads, the head of ACC officials, mentioned that leading with the crown of the helmet and hitting above the shoulders will bring an automatic ejection this season. If the hit happens in the first half, the player will be ejected for the rest of the game. if the hit happens in the second half, that player will be suspended for the first half of the next game as well.
Rhoads was asked about South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney's hit on a Michigan player in the bowl game, and he said in his opinion that should have been an ejection, and that hits like that one will lead to ejections to this season.
