    You don't get more textbook targeting than that hit. Roid animal Skalski knew exactly what he was doing, too

    On the flip side that can lead to being paralyzed from the neck down.

    I don’t agree with that. If that had been an RB, that call wouldn’t have been made. Fields tried to roll of the hit, and rolled into the defender’s helmet. The defender didn’t launch, he attempted a form tackle on a runner trying spin away.

    I had several fractured ribs about five years ago. I cannot begin to tell you how painful fractured ribs are.

    That would still be called. How can I explain that any better? You tackle with the crown of the helmet on anybody and it's targeting.

    Sorry man...our season is over. I took my Gator flag down today.

    Last thing I want is another Bama/Clemson rematch.

    GO Bucks!

    Clemson in real trouble here, OSU is better than I thought but I maintain they should not be in this game having played only 6 games and their conference changing the rules for them!

    Sermon giving a sermon on how to power run. It takes almost 3 or 4 to bring him down.

    It’s a selective penalty that isn’t called uniformly. That is the problem I have with it.

    Perrine gets hit in the head and fumbles last year, no call. Field’s gets hit in the ribs, it’s called.

    This is what it looks like when you have fresh legs from having played half a season. This is exactly why I thought they didn’t deserve a playoff spot.
