    Honestly, this is going to happen to CU at some point.

    Everyone in chat thought it was a stupid call. Glad it was reversed.

    Stupid rule. Both in college and the NFL they're trying to ruin the game of football.

    Yes, we need to ensure cheap-shots are delivered as much as possible. More career-ending injuries!!

    That wasn't a cheap shot

    Over/Under for Parker Orms is 3.5 for the season.

    The CSU rusher was doing everything he could to not hit our QB and still nearly got thrown out of a game. We're not talking about cheap shots, we're talking about a silly rule that seems to be misaligned with its intent.

    Bell's hit was closer to "targeting" than the sheep's hit was. Thought for sure he'd get called for it.

    I was really surprised he wasn't tossed. I'm guessing they didn't want to go through the review process again. I'm glad James wasn't tossed, it would have been a point on which the lammies could have whined. Plus he didn't do anything.

    HOW? By returning it to the days when you couldn't cheap-shot a player with your helmet? I hate seeing players using the helmet as a weapon to intimidate and injure. That's not how I was taught to play. Heads up and drive into the offensive player with your shoulder to tackle. If my coachs ever saw me go in head-down, not that I ever tried that crap, but sometimes you'd reflexively lower your head--- I got yanked!

    There will be a lot of ejections where the speed of the game and not intent caused the helmet to helmet hit.

    The rule hasn't changed, just the penalty and the amount of emphasis. I would be happier if we'd had increased emphasis all along (would have won that CSU game in Folsom when Scotty got targeted helmet-to-helmet and it wasn't called), but I'm not sure I like a 2+ quarter suspension.

    I'm fine ejecting cheap shots - but im not sure that James should have penalized, much less ejected for that play.

    Any rule that asks a ref to make a judgment call on "intent" is going to be a problem.

    For example, the facemask call was a mess for years. Getting rid of the 5-yard penalty and simplifying it as "if it's worth calling, it's a 15-yard penalty" was a great rule change.

    They need to figure out how to do something similar with targeting.
