gjsnowboarder No way that is a penalty. He didn't launch (too much), he wasn't low on the legs, it wasn't away from the play, it wasn't to the head, and it really wasn't on on a blindside(hit was on the front right of the body not even really that much on the side). You have got to know when playing defense that other O players may be trying to block and be more aware of your surroundings.

sabatoa If it starts getting called every time I think you'll see it happen less as we're seeing with other types of hits but I still disagree with the call.

ShredLife he makes a good point in that vid but my opinion is that they can go ahead and start flagging those hits but they're still going to happen. the speed of the game and the size of the players makes it inevitable.

Derp If they hadn't thrown a flag I wouldn't have complained a bit. Was really hard to tell. With all the focus on concussions now though you would never see the NCAA saying they made a bad call here.

Was definitely one of those "OH SHIT!" hits though.

If he launched both feet, maybe. He didn't though. That wasn't a launch, it was hardnose football.

sabatoa That's bullshiat.

That hit was hard as hell, dude got his bell rung but it was clean and legal...and devastating.

ShredLife i don't know what else he was supposed to do - fall on the guys legs and try and wrap them up? c'mon man...
