Replay it again ... please. So targeting continues to be the talk of the early season ... and the disdain of a certain college football rules analyst. About halfway through the second quarter, with Alabama leading Texas A&M 21-14, the Crimson Tide's Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was defending Aggies wide receiver Derel Walker on a sideline play and Clinton-Dix was called for a targeting foul and was subjected to ejection from the game. It was deemed not targeting by the replay official and Clinton-Dix was allowed to remain. My problem with this rule: Everybody agrees this play wasn't targeting, yet the foul stood as called because replay can't review any part of the play except the ejection. It almost sets a double standard. Replay confirmed it wasn't targeting, and they could see clearly it was not a foul. So if the NCAA is going to go this route on the targeting foul rule and the enforcement of it, I think it should go the all the way and review the action foul as well. Since you are already reviewing the play, in the end, why not get the whole play right? Please. Keep it here throughout the day for more from Mike Pereira.
