With his team down by two points and driving, California quarterback Jared Goff took a shot down the field from UCLA’s 36 yard line. It might not have been the best decision considering the team was about five yards from being in field goal range, but that’s not necessarily the point here.

Texas A&M’s Nick Harvey disqualified for hit on Dak Prescott, good call or not?

Did the punishment fit the crime? What do you think? Our editor doesn’t agree with the ejection… An ejection is way too harsh in A&M-MSU. — The Student Section (@TheStudentSect) October 4, 2014 There’s a place in football 4 targeting-based ejections, but that place is 4 players who make patently dirty plays, not just late/head hits. — The Student Section (@TheStudentSect...
