Carolina’s Spurrier A-OK With New Targeting Rule

gfx - they said itThe growing uproar over college football’s new targeting rule has yet to gain the support of one of the sport’s most vocal coaches.  South Carolina head man Steve Spurrier is in favor of much-discussed penalty and — impressively — he had no complaints about his own player being ejected from last Saturday’s game in Knoxville:

 

“I think it’s a rule we have to have.  Sometimes the referees miss it a little bit, but when there’s a helmet-to-helmet hit and the tackler could avoid it, the 15-yard penalty and an ejection is something to think about.  We had one last week at Tennessee and I told our safety, JJ Marcus, ‘JJ, you can’t tackle like that anymore.  I know you’re used to that.’…

You’re getting a few more knees maybe getting knocked out in some places because of this.  Hopefully players will tackle around the chest area.  That’s the safest for all concerned and keep their heads out of it.”

 

SEC coordinator of officials Steve Shaw says the strengthening of the penalty to include player ejections has helped cut down on the number of flags thrown for targeting.  “We’ve actually seen players’ reactions change on these type hits.  Last year, a lot of times we’d have a big hit and the player would be chest-bumping and high-fiving his teammates.  Now, it’s almost, ‘Uh oh,’ hands on the helmet or whatever.  So I think players are getting it.  We still have a long way to go.”

But it's not the penalty itself that's objected.  The issue is if a video review negates a player ejection, it SHOULD negate the penalty all together!
