    With all his interceptions he should be used to this drill by now.

    I've never seen the rule interpreted as broadly as we are seeing here. The rule might be read to cover any blindside hit but it is pretty obvious from watching games that is not how it is actually interpreted. Now the SEC/NCAA aren't known for consistency but to punish in this situation would be changing the way that rule has been interpreted for as long as it has been around.

    I don't see how he can get a suspension just because they missed the call in the game. If they had flagged it he wouldn't have been kicked out for it so why do a suspension in hindsight.

    LOL! Visit their pages and see how many single causes they've identified. Basically they just ran out of time. Every once in a while, someone will remember that they had 350 yds rushing put on them...

    I'm more worried about our next game, should the squeaky wheels get the grease.

    That's what I've said numerous times in the other thread. If the cameras saw any other player on the ground, they wouldn't show the replay. The replay was shown because Gary and Verne thought he was hit late after the throw.

    I never saw a replay of Stinson's injury. Wonder why...

    It didn't look that bad to me.

    Plus it was about six yards from the ball carrier.

    That is one of the vaguest rules I've ever read and isn't really fair to the officials having to make the call.
    Maybe, after the hit, the official can ask the blockee, "Excuse me son, did you have a focus of concentration?"..lol
    That'll straighten it all out.

    I posted this on the other thread but I think it applies here...

    Ultimately I think they will go to a simplified rule much like they did with the face mask penalty. Instead of an inadvertent or intentional judgement call the NCAA simply changed it to "If you grab the face mask it's 15 yards".
    I wouldn't be surprised to eventually see a rule that reads something like, "Any blindside block above the shoulders is a penalty".
    What's amazing to me is that the NCAA actually forced the higher tackling and blocking techniques many years ago when, because of a rash of knee injuries they made it practically illegal to tackle or block anyone below the waist. It's an ever evolving game I guess.

    Looking at some of the pics I've seen posted, he was TOTALLY focused on Dial about a half second before the hit. His eyes got big as moon pies!

    Dial is so much bigger and stronger that Murray bounced off Dial like a spring. Murray is actually kind of small.

    Bottom line, if this exact block had been thrown on kick coverage this would be a complete non issue. The man was a defender at the point he was popped. Just my 2 cents. Worth what you paid for it.
