    And Ron, if you're reading this, no, my above post wasn't made because the Canes had two players kicked out due to the targeting rule. I would have posted the same exact thing had two Nebraska players been thrown out

    If someone actually targets I'm fine with the penalty as it is. The problem is most of the calls really aren't targeting, the penalized player just missed and made the hit high.

    If a defender hits a guy square in the head, an obvious spear, then I can agree with him being thrown out, but like you say, a lot of these targeting calls are just a guy hitting a receiver a little too high with no intent to do so

A player who gets called for a "targeting" penalty gets thrown out of the game, and then is forced to sit out the first half of the next game, that's way too punitive. Call the 15 yard penalty, but don't kick the player out. They could do what the NBA does with technicals, once you get a certain amount, you're suspended for a game. The NCAA could set a certain amount of "targeting" penalties called against a player before he gets suspended for a game, let's say three of them, then you sit out the next game, or even two targeting penalties, but to kick a kid out of the game, then force him to miss the first half of the next game in way over the top
    They need to do like they do in basketball--- review the play, and if it looks like the targeting was intentional kick the guy out. If it was just a bad tackle (or the QB started sliding which is one of the main culprits in this) enforce the penalty, but leave the kid in the game.

    Notice all the chintzy defensive holding calls so far this year? Goodell wants more scoring. Like his dad, he can fuk things up.

    When they put up a total on the Texas Tech/Baylor game, I think we might see 90

    Arietta and Grienke should be named co-winners of the Cy Young, I can't imagine either one of them not winning it with the seasons they've both had

    Was really shocked at the opener of 15 and now it's 15.5. I thought Baylor would open 10.5-11.

    What's your opinion here Kane ?

    TT's QB is listed as questionable, so I want to see his status later in the week. It might be tough for the Raiders to bounce back after that heartbreaking loss last week to TCU, more than likely a pass for me. The game starts at 3:30, it might not end until 8:00
