    Re: Delpit's Hit on Ruggs: How Was This Not Targeting??

    The fact that they overturned it on review was what really set me off. They were giving them "make-up" calls and no-calls all night thanks to all the caterwauling over White's ejection.

    The SEC refs have set a dangerous precedent with this game IMO. By their calls last night, they are basically allowing that if your fanbase and some TV "personality" can raise enough of a stink about a call in a previous game, you can get preferential treatment in your next game...
    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.

    The fact that LSU fans actually believed that the White ejection was an Alabama conspiracy proves out of whack they truly are. Last night crossed the line and as an Alabama graduate and fan it makes me irate beyond words. LSU players were intentionally trying to injure our players without repercussion. I don't know we can do.

    Well, I thought it was targeting, but I'm sort of glad it was overturned. Ruggs was falling back into the end zone, and Delpit did have his head up, ie didn't seem to lower his head and hit him with crown of the helmet. We got a break very similar to this one with Deonte Thompson against Arkansas. Deonte going in for the tackle and the receiver lowers his head at the same time, so you had helmet to helmet contact. We got the TD, and LSU has no excuses that we only won because they were missing their two best defenders. I'm more concerned with the other play where it looked like Delpit was targeting Tua's knee but got the goodies instead.

    I just have to think this was a "political" decision based on White's controversial call the week before.
    Was it because of that Carville guy???????

    I do have to admit that I don't think the LSU Tigers were as BAD as the Missouri TIGERS at trying to hurt Bama players.

    I think the reason stated by Brad/Gary (for no-call) was that Ruggs was not a "defenseless" player. He was making a "football move".

    Think Aaron Suttles said it best on Twitter last night - glad Delpit wasn't ejected but have no clue what targeting is.

    Looked textbook to me, but I knew the whole time they weren't calling it.No statement from the SEC so far concerning the rant on Espn either.

    Right. Aren't most Offensive guys making football moves? If he had been blasted out of bounds on the sidelines...would there have been a flag?? What is the difference? Ruggs had already scored and the play was near over.

    Technically, targeting was called. James Carville just had it waved off at the SEC review office!

    Delpit was guilty of targeting and it should not have been overturned.

    Going to have to disagree with you on this. It was textbook targeting (despite the review room not having the courage to confirm it) and we could've lost Ruggs to a concussion, possibly for weeks. The dude should have been ejected.

    "Making a football move" is the dumbest phrase in sports. What other kind of moves would they be making in a football game?
