New candidate for worst targeting call of the year. The Ohio State player hits the quarterback under the shoulder pads with his hands. Literally no head contact at all. It was a late hit but in no way shape or form targeting. This has got to be fixed at some point. It’s embarrassing to football and costs a team too much
They need to take the shoulder part out of it and make it the head contact as was originally intended. OU lost a player this year for shoulder to shoulder contact. This issue in college football may lose fans like the catch rule is in the NFL. I am all for ridding head shots from the game but it still HAS to be a contact sport.

And nice to see Sparty is back to being Sparty. :lol:

IMO it should be helmet to helmet hits only and the player shouldn’t get tossed on the first one. Do it like soccer where you don’t get tossed until the second penalty

Georgia is getting hammered by Auburn

Wisconsin is taking it to Iowa too. I’m sorry but they are in if they stay undefeated.

Clemson should be behind Oklahoma/TCU imo. They just don’t pass the eye test when you compare them.

'Sconsin better be in if they're 13-0. Just don't see how you can go undefeated in that league and be on the outside looking in. Chryst has it in perspective and dem Badgers don't seem too worried.

Irish in trouble if they don't stop the Canes here. The Miami defense is an impressive swarm of speed.

I am surprised to see an Alabama team give up on the run. Mississippi State is dominating time of possession.

Got to say I love the crowd shot of ND fans (possibly family). The one girl has plugged her ears about 4 times now. :joker

On the last play of the Bama game why wasn't the pass interference spotted at the 2 instead they gave the 15 yd penalty

I did not think Miami was for real. What a performance though.

Alabama is showing they have not fixed their offense. This year really is a toss up. Every top team has major issues

College is 15 yards unless spot of foul is less than 15, then it's spot of foul.

In college it's 15 yards from the line of scrimmage unless the team is inside 15 yards from the end zone, then it's half the distance. Only in the pros is it a spot foul which can include it being spotted at the 2.

The top 4 is probably Bama, Clemson, OU, and Miami. Wisconsin probably moves up to #5.

I feel like Wisky gets the #4 and Miami at #5. Although I think Miami would hammer Wisky.

Interesting to see how my Irish do from here out. Don't have a good feeling about the Stanford or Navy game. I knew we were $crewed against Miami as soon as Corso picked us. :smart ... :D
I'm no President Trump fan but thank you sir for your comments in regard to the NFL and those protesting our nations anthem. You were spot on!!!

Miami just embarrassed ND. There’s no way Wisky is in the top 4 ahead of them...

Things will get weird if auburn wins the iron bowl. Which could happen. The adage about losing early rather than late will be out the window, cause bama will still be there. Much as i hate the SEC, and I do, I'm actually happy to see Mizzou turn it around. I had left them for dead and wow have they turned it around. Man I wanted to suit up and play for that team after odom''s press conference. Love to see players respond to a coach like that.

IMO Badgers will need to beat Michigan next week to deserve top 4 consideration. I heard some analysts speaking on a sports talk show and they were saying that they must become more than a Jonathan Taylor run team to garner committee votes.

That's their game, run behind the mastodons. The talking heads can go take a flying leap for all I care. Just win, baby. They win, they're in. Period. No one loss anybody before them. Maybe the committee will call me and ask my opinion.

I think Michigan matches up well with Wisconsin. I think it comes down to if the offense can score enough and they can avoid turnovers. Defense needs to make Hornibrook (sp?) throw the ball. I think I read he has 12 ints.

Sure wish FOX would wise up and start putting their best game in prime time. They will air their matchup of top 25 teams during the day on a day where the prime time games are as bad as I can remember.
