    Ummm, he hit the guys shoulder pads. This whole concept of hitting below the neck is going to get defensive players hurt when they inevitably duck their head... That's how dudes break their necks. That is a great block; a player has to be aware of his surroundings and keep his head on a swivel.

    That was the only hit Nebraska made all night. I go along with most in that I don't want the essence of football to go away. I also have a son who is a high school WR/DB and I don't want to see him get blown up like that.

    Start the video at :30 sec and stop it at :32. Contact is above the shoulders and he launched. Illegal hit.

    Speaking of Clean Hits (Nebraska vs. Wisconsin)

    I don't have the advantage of slowmo on the iPhone but it looks to me like he got him around the armpit area - did not target the shoulder or head area. Good clean decleating block. This is football - not a game for babies.

    That was worse than Dial's hit. The Nebraska player launch himself at the head of the Wisky player.Dial didn't launch himself at AM.

    His feet don't come off the ground until after contact is made...initial contact is the armpit area. Go play kickball if a play like this disturbs you

    No wonder they got the crap beat out of them. If that was flagged, then they had to stop blocking and tackling from that point on.

    I've seen it. It's a good football hit. It fits the overly broad (and thus unconstitutional; j/k) definition of a defenseless playerHSV has given in another thread. If that hit is illegal, the sport we love becomes soccer matches with tiddly-winks and patti-cake.

    Are you kidding me?
    The act of RUNNING causes a player's feet to "leave the ground"
    That should in no way be a criterion for a roughness penalty.

    I don't think it was a dirty play, and it shouldn't have been flagged, but I think calling it beautiful is a little ridiculous. If you take too many shots like that in your life you won't remember your own name by the time that you're in your 50's.
