to a defenseless player.
That should prove interesting with all the legal hits that Barnett's Boys make. I'm still frosted over the penalty on MSU in that 2009 iowa night game.
A college football player who delivers a hit to the head of a defenseless opponent could be kicked out of the game next season under an NCAA proposal that took a step forward Wednesday.
If they did this, I would guess we make it to the 3rd game of the college season before someone is wrongly ejected and then ESPN will meltdown and it will be hilarious. (Unless it is one of our guys booted)
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
Pussification of football continues... Flag football will exist in 10 years at this rate
I think you'll see the number of illegal hits stay the same, but the number of penalties go wayyy down. A referee isn't going to want to toss a player for making a hit, especially when a lot of them are bang-bang plays.
Also the proposal for requiring 3 seconds on the clock in order to "clock" the ball seems absurd. It doesn't take 3 seconds from whistle to whistle. If they add any timing rules, it should be for the officials placement of the ball. I'm tired of seeing referees bust their ass to place a ball down for hurry-up offenses, then take their time for prostyles. Make a rule that referees can't place a ball faster than X seconds or slower than X+5 seconds.
I agree with this.
What kind of horse *bleep* is this?
"If the penalty occurs in the first half, the player would be ejected for the remainder of the game. If the penalty occurs in the second half or overtime, the player is ejected for the remainder of the game and the first half of the next game."
Oh, and while MSU wears white pants, no possibly of all green alternative uniforms if that rule passes.
If this is passed, there is no way this rule won't screw MSU.
A ref will eject people if they are told they will be fired if they don't. It's up to how strictly the NCAA/conferences want it to be enforced.
Of course if this board is to be believed all games are predetermined by a vast conspiracy, so I am not sure why these rules matter anyway.

The single most appropriate use of this saying in the history of this board
YOUR frosted? I was there in the north end zone and that hit electrified that stadium like I"ve NEVER seen it during a game: and I"ve been to many SCum games including one where TJ caught winning pass at end of game. I have never personally witnessed a hit like Ware on Sandifer before or since. I swear to god Sandifer still feels that hit in the AM when he rolls out of the rack....knocked him the FUCK out.
.....can't ever forgive or forget that was good old BIll Lemonier that made that call.....yep, same POS that effed us outta the Rose Bowl 2 yrs. ago. Hate that effer.
I might REALLY regret typing this BUT....how the hell can it get any worse than it is already? I could cite the litany of screw jobs: including multiple games last season but I'm enjoying the basketball season....it's too much of a buzz kill.
Drilling a stationary, defenseless punt returner before the ball arrives is one thing. This is just touch fball in the making.

I was in Sec. 7. I share the pain. I cannot vituperate on lemonier sufficiently.
