Jonathon Mincy is a good football player, but that doesn’t mean he’s a good teammate. During Auburn’s spring game, Mincy slipped through receiver Dimitri Reese‘s blockers on a screen and lit him up with a devastating blow. Moncy was flagged 15 yards for targeting the receiver above the shoulders, which leads to an automatic ejection. That’s right, a player was ejected in a spring game, for laying an illegal hit upon his own teammate. Check it out below. Thanks to Dr. Saturday for pointing it out

Auburn DB ejected for nasty spring game hit

I don’t think I have ever heard of a player getting ejected from their school’s spring game, but that streak is over now.  In a bizarre and irresponsible move Auburn defensive back Jonathon Mincy managed to get himself thrown out of Auburn’s A-Day game for an illegal hit on a teammate. Mincy apparently didn’t receive the memo that teams are supposed to not try and injure...

Crushing hit gets Auburn DB booted

In the world of college football, it's often hard to justify calling a school's "spring game" a game at all, and more often than not, the scrimmages amount to little more than glorified open practices. So, needless to say, it's virtually impossible to get ejected from one, regardless of what you do. But after absolutely obliterating his own teammate with a...

Auburn Player Ejected for Dirty Hit on Teammate in Spring Game

Spring practice is  chance for guys to show they can play, and that when they are called upon they can bring it. However, what you don't need to do is go so hard that you can't control what you do and risk doing something stupid (which you don't really want to do at anytime). Like what Jonathon Mincy did last weekend in Auburn's spring game. Mincy was playing...

Chizik: Not bitter at Auburn firing, mum on plans

Gene Chizik isn't bitter about getting fired by Auburn and still believes he can be a successful head coach. Beyond that, he is coy about his future coaching plans. Chizik shed little light Monday on when he hopes to get back in coaching, or whether the former defensive coordinator would be willing to go back to being an assistant. He worked for ESPN on national signing day...

With Friends Like These...

When the NCAA Rule Committee proposed ejections for targeting we knew it was only a matter of time before somebody got tossed for a helmet to helmet shot, but I don't think any of us expected it to come in a spring game. Auburn's Jonathon Mincy managed to earn the first targeting ejection of 2013 four months before opening weekend when he absolutely unloaded on a defenseless...
