SEC Will Ask The NCAA to Change Targeting Rule
When the SEC wants to get something done it usually happens. It sounds like they have set their sights on the new targeting rule since the league has had so many questionable calls:
“Even our commissioner has serious reservations about the penalty philosophy around targeting fouls when they’re overturned,” Shaw said on the SEC teleconference referring to Mike Slive, according to Athens Banner-Herald. “He and I have talked. He’s challenged me, and together we’re going to work with the rules committee to revisit the penalty if a disqualification is overturned for targeting.”
Fans outside of the South typically dislike the SEC but like it or not they start a lot of change in College Football. Changing this rule is for the best anyway.
