    Re: Murray was hit CLEAN by Dial. After an interception quarterback becomes a DEFENDE

    What would be the legal way to block Murry in that situation?
    Your not supposed to go for the knees, and now you can't hit high either?
    Jeez, Murry was running toward the play, it wasn't Dials fault the Murry wasn't aware what was going on.

    I can see it if he hit him from behind or something, but it was from the front.

    With that said, the whining by everyone is getting really old. It has been the most concentrated play of the game so far, and that's just ridiculous. To quote Gary; " It Happens", funny he wasn't saying that about this play.
    Don't get me wrong I'm not saying he should have risked making that block, but in Dial's favor Murray was moving towards the play. If he didn't want to risk getting floored he probably should have not moved.

    92tide, since the hit on McCarron was called, I wouldn't think it would be a talking point in this instance... The missed block in the back on the UGA punt return in the 3rd, and more so the takedown of Mosley on their TD run is another story altogether.
    im thinking the one on mccarron more in the realm of those calling for some sort of post game action by the SEC

    I think it's funny that everybody ooh's and ahh's when a WR is de-cleated on an INT return, but when it's the feel-good QB of the game it's the biggest non call of non calls ever in the history of football
    That's the paradox of success. The moment you stop to enjoy it, you are in trouble. You have to keep moving forward. It's not what you have done that's important. It's where you are going.

    Doesn't matter if Dial's helmet hit Murray under the chin as long as he didn't lead with his helmet. If you watch the replay, you'll see that he was leading with his shoulder.

    And I'll just assume that calling many on this board an 'idiot' is the liquor talking . . .

    With only one view of the hit, Gary was being quite irresponsible with his extreme criticism. It's clear that he didn't want Bama to win. Nevertheless, it looked like a clean hit to me.

    Yep and he will refuse to say he was wrong too. He had the whole commercial break to look at it and they still decided to blast Dial for it.

    They had the entire halftime to look at it, and they still harped on it. That's what got me, all the things they could have discussed to start the 2nd half, they spend a good 5 minutes discussing that. It was worthless bantering, and I'm thankful that the SEC front office isn't afraid to let the players play unlike the NFL.

    Yep and it's a shame too about them having that much time and still taking the shot at Dial. If it was such a bad play the ref standing right there watching the whole thing would have flagged Dial and he didn't. That should have been their first hint, but them two goofs decided to put the ref on blast as well. Man I hope ESPN gets the next contract!

    they got what they wanted, a hit that looked bad on camera so they could talk bad about BAMA.

    If you win enough...eventually people see you as the villain and they hope you fail.

    In that situation I would have put Murray on his back, and then offered to help him up.
