    Re: Speaking of Clean Hits (Nebraska vs. Wisconsin)

    It's just like all of heinz 57 sauce ward's hits in his NFL career: oh they are legal, unless you're the one on the other end of the hit. He will get his, just like ward got his.

    Re: Speaking of Clean Hits (Nebraska vs. Wisconsin)

    It seems like blocking and tackling have become the same technique to the defense in the open field. The Nebraska player would probably make the same hit on a ball carrier, and since blocking it's not about getting down to their waist, maybe this has helped high tackling evolve?


    Here is a great example of a clean clocking.......... of Reggie Bush

    Both of the videos posted in this thread show some really GREAT football! Thanks to RedStar for the picture of the Wisc/Neb hit--totally legal hit--pretty awesome, too! The Reggie Bush one--any video showing him get clocked, legal or illegal is great.

    Terry Bradshaw said back in the day, that maybe they should just put skirts on us (meaning the QB)...I think we are just about there...I think the hit was legal, and unfortunately we're gonna probably see more, not less of these calls...that's why its called tackle football...

    Tough deal....I see it both ways

    he launched himself at him...Grreat block, but in the curernt era, maybe not the best idea to launch yourself to make a block.

    well, he launched himself at the player, which will draw an unnecessary roughness penalty (wasnt needed to make the block and spring the runner)

    was called a penalty, and will be called a penalty...need to learn to play within the current rules set...or cost your team 15 yards a pop...

    agree or disagree, it was a great hiot, but a bad play under the curent rules environment...because it cost his team a touchdown and wasnt necessary to spring the runner around the edge...

    he saw an opportunity to 'decleat' the guy, and did it...
    not a good football play with the rules in place.

    Where do you see him launching himself? Heck, I saw at least 5 Bama players launching every offensive play Saturday. The offensive line launched their bodies out of their stance towards the UGA defense. Guess that should be a 15 yard penalty.

    Methinks he doesn't know what launching means.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.
