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



    I'm sure this was a "topic" of discussion in the game thread. Don't understand how in the world this wasn't called targeting.

    I just have to think this was a "political" decision based on White's controversial call the week before.

    Agree - that was targeting.

    The more I watch -- the more I think that Irv's kick of Delpit after the TD was payback for the attempt to take out Tua's knees at the beginning of the game. Great video BTW --

    It was targeting. Officiating wasn't going to do anything but call procedural stuff on LSU after they showed their asses for two weeks. Still beat the breaks off em despite an abundantly favorable officiating situation for a home underdog.

    It has become pretty common for these LSU games to be among the most under officiated games we play all year. Auburn is usually the other one. We get a normal whistle against most everyone else but even then we almost never get the holding calls we should on our DL.

    Proud of the win yesterday but the officiating, politics and media coverage surrounding it were disgraceful. People need to be held accountable.

    Well it was initially called targeting on the field but was overturned by the replay officials. It was most likely overturned because of the previous 2 weeks garbage. I did notice that unlike every other targeting call this year, Brad and Gary made no comment at all as to whether they believed it was targeting or not.

    No question targeting, even the corndogs admitted as much.

    Has to be back room politics. People don't want us to keep winning.

    Everyone is against us. Yesterday proved it. I don't know what we can do about it.

    I said it wasnít targeting at first but looking at it, itís textbook targeting. Should have been tossed but no autopsy no foul.
