    Just heard them mention on espn that the Clowney hit could result in a penalty and ejection with this new rule.

    Anderson said four main high-risk actions likely will result in targeting penalties:

    • Launch: When a player leaves his feet.
    • Thrust: When a player hits upward with his helmet.
    • Strike: Striking the head and neck area and crown of the helmet.
    • Leading: Leading with the top of the helmet.

    All four actions are the high-risk indicators officials will be looking for during games this fall.

    Good. Leading with the head is bad tackling. Watch old films, nobody lead with their head when they tackled.

    Game is ruined.

    I say the rule is rescinded after the first 4 games. That is one of the most retarded rules I've ever heard.

    I remember somebody posted the intro highlights to some football show in the early 80s and every tackle would be a 15 yard penalty now. :dontknow:

    "Hey kid, this is how you tackle, but don't do it in a game because it's a penalty."

    :scratch:

    That Clowney hit in the OP is deemed illegal by the NCAA.

    What exactly should Clowney have done in that play?

    Too bad that gif doesn't play out to the part where Clowney picks the ball up with one hand like a lion picking it's cub up after feasting on a gazelle.

    :c

    That kid from Michigan probably still pees the bed from nightmares.


    But then again, I imagine 40% of the people in Michigan pee the bed from nightmares.

    You know when your team makes a great stop on 3rd down, but one of the d-men breathed wrong on the qb for a 15 yard penalty?

    Now every offensive player is going to have that protection.
