    What was with Grant Delpit deliberately trying to take Tua’s knee out?

    I remember that UGA fan that called into Finebaum and said that LSU should go after Tua’s knee and I didn’t think that they would do that but not only did Delpit go after Tua’s knee on the low blow play but he aimed at his knee when Tua was trying to go outta bounds. That’s just dirty play imo.

    Yes. He was also trying to knockout Ruggs too.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    I’m guessing that’s why Irv kicked him after the TD before the half.

    Darriel Youngblood is the name of the UGA fan who calls into Finebaum. He's a true low life scum bag.

    What was with it? It was the only chance they had to win.

    There were two things that could have prevented that hit. First, the referee standing behind Tua should have been running in, blowing his whistle and waving his hands. Didn't seem like he made much of an effort to signal the false start like he should have in a loud environment. Second, Tua should be taught that if he hears a whistle for a false start to just spike the ball. QBs do this in the NFL all the time to completely avoid taking a hit from a defender who "didn't hear the whistle." If the QB simply spikes the ball then there wouldn't be a hit or if there is a hit it's grounds for a penalty.

    I have no idea if Delpit and the other LSU defender heard the whistle or if it was a cheap shot but either of the solutions outlined above could have mitigated taking the hit..

    It is possible that nobody heard the whistle...
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    He is truly an idiotic uga homer that has always been ate up with jealousy of Bama. He wasn’t the only one calling in the week leading up to the game saying L8U should go after Tua’s knee. Several L8U fans that were crying over the DW targeting call, were saying “well, if they can’t tackle high without being ejected for targeting, then they should hit him low and take out his knee”.

    While I know callers on Finebaum’s show are usually crazy nut jobs, it was exceptionally bad leading up to the game. I listen occasionally purely for entertainment purposes to get a good laugh, and the occasional good guest interview, but it still amazes me how serious some of those callers are and how wrapped up they are with calling in to that show!

    I'll go with cheap shot. He took a 4 step run at Tua going after the knee.

    Our guys seemed to all hear it and stop playing. I guess it is possible they all have better hearing that multiple LSU players.

    I have been recovering from surgery and housebound soout of Boredom...been keeping up with Finebaum. Since that time.....I have not seen or heard that that guy has been back on air. He got spanked for that. I THINK that they are not accepting him to get connected. Jmo. Finebaum will clear anybody for a rating bump. James Carville for instance. Rest my case your Honor.

    Yeah it definitely was a questionable hit. Just seems weird for Delpit to launch his body so low on the tackle. Could be wrong though

    SEC IS strangely quiet with all that don't you agree? I think a few of Mizzou's players should be called out. I think the same of LSU. I want to know why no flags thrown there. No dead ball foul or roughing the passer or anything. Why? We heard 100% more whining about Dylan Moses' push right on the sideline which COULD have been called, but GD called the foul...and then the disgust that it wasn't. Don't recall him worrying about Tua getting hammered by 2 Lsu players after the whistle. Whatever happened to the "Hey Ref...We can't hear our signals" rule?? The refs used to caution the fans. Same as the cowbell joke that we see in Starkville.
