The targeting rule in college football has gotten completely out of hand. We have all seen plenty of terrible targeting calls that result in players being ejected from the games, but the call against No. 15 Georgia Bulldogs starting defensive lineman Ray Drew may be the worst that we have ever seen.

Drew was coming up the middle when the Vanderbilt quarterback released the ball and Drew made contact.

It was a completely clean hit with Drew’s chest hitting the shoulder of the Vanderbilt quarterback. The flag was thrown for targeting and Drew was ejected from the game. The worst part about the entire call is that the play was actually reviewed and officials determined that this was in fact the targeting rule.

If these are the kind of plays that will get players ejected moving forward, then goodbye football. You were once such a great sport.

    lets just put some flags on them, and that would get rid of a bunch of rules

  • Dan

    The referee is pulling his flag BEFORE there was any contact. Bad call…biased call.

  • Sandra Wise

    Not a Georgia fan, but that call was awful. Not even a good personal foul call. That stinks. This new Targeting rule is being abused something awful and what is even worse is this call was reviewed and missed again. That sucks!

  • Carolyn Hicks

    You have to be kidding me. He just shoved him. I am not a Georgia fan but that was a horrible call.

  • Kenny Weaks
