Why Targeting Is the Worst Rule in College Football

The Program@br_cfbFeatured Columnist IIOctober 8, 2013

The new targeting rule in college football has its share of critics. Players can receive immediate ejections for targeting calls. While these calls can be reviewed and reversed, the 15-yard penalty cannot.

Alabama junior Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was called for targeting and ejected in his game against Texas A&M after laying out wide receiver Derel Walker. Although the ejection was overturned, the penalty was still enforced. Is that fair for defenses?

Watch the CFB team break down the new rule and what it means for college football.
