Targeting
« on: October 10, 2020, 06:26:26 PM »
Is there anyone else out there that thinks targeting is out of control? Sometimes is quite obvious but it seems most often a guys just trying to make the play and in super speed it’s really difficult to avoid.

I see a lot of calls being made, then overturned.  A lot of ref are just tossing the flag and forcing the video reviewer to make the call,

Part of the problem is when you look at things in slow motion it looks as though there is reaction time to avoid the hit but in game time motion it is frequently just not there. They really need to come up with a better system.

The Gators have figured out how to avoid targeting calls.  They just don't tackle anyone.

Maybe, but it is accurate.  This is the worst Gators defense I've ever seen.  Even when the team was lousy, the defense was respectable.  With the offense they have this year, they could be a championship team if they had even an average defense.
