Same silly rule, same unbelievable result. As the horrifying targeting rule continues to develop today as one of the biggest story lines in college football with multiple horrifyingly awful ejections, Ohio State Buckeyes defensive back Bradley Roby was the latest to get ejected for a perfectly legal hit.
Roby delivered a big hit to Iowa tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz. Their helmets did make contact, but it was clear that Roby was just attempting to jar the ball loose on a much taller pass catcher, so he needed to launch upward.
After reviewing the play, it was confirmed as targeting and the All-American defensive back was ejected from the game.

Targeting has been a big problem all season long, but today it has really been an issue with at least three ejections to key players.
When you aren’t allowing people to play the game and make clean hits, you are taking away the product that the fans love and jeopardizing the integrity of the game.
