Re: Bowl Season

Alabama shut Michigan down the second half...pulled away. 35-16.

I did not think that Michigan matched up that well...

Minnesota and Auburn was a good match...Minnesota by 7...

Re: Bowl Season

As a boy, I remember Ryne Duran with the Yankees (my boyhood team).

He was a thrower...glasses an inch thick and terrible vision, a wild pitch every now and then into the back screen, and a 100 mph ball, all kept batters on their toes.

Re: Bowl Season

You tackled and played differently, and perhaps more cautiously, in my day (early 60's). With just a single bar face guard, you were aware of face vulnerability. I took a powerful forearm under my bar that ended my season...broken nose, split lips, loose teeth. I played rugby until my late 30's...ov...

Re: Bowl Season

The NCAA does say they will err on the side of safety. Players are so instructed...yet there will always be an idiot lowering his hemet to punish on a tackle. The only area being called that even bothers me some is when the offensive running back lowers his head into an oncoming defender's tackle......

Re: Bowl Season

There is nothing about being a runner...in the targetting rule. ..there is a determination in calling roughing the passer...whether he has become a runner.

Re: Bowl Season

The targeting call was the textbook definition of a target... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhUby8SOEbs Targetting...any one or more of the following ...Leading with helmet, shoulder forearm, fist, hand or elbow to attack with forcible contact at the head or neck area.(guilty) ...Lowering the head...

Re: Bowl Season

In the replay, you can see the ball held out as he tries to bring it into his body...which he never did...the officials, I guess, determined that he didn't "secure it and make a football move with clear control of the ball" (the rule) before having it knocked out. It was close enough to ca...
