Good short read.
"I like your head, it's a good look." - James Franklin, to a bald reporter asking a question.
Interesting....i didnt think anyone working for PSU was allowed to mention Paterno's name....or at least it would seem.
I think a corner has been turned. At least I hope so. Still hoping the field gets named after Paterno.
The head shot rule is certainly a drag.. I can see officials targeting players and ejecting them for ticky tack calls.. The refs have too much power as it is when it comes to interpreting the rules...
Great to read. Thanks for posting!
Yeah it's total BS. Amos is going to have a hard time. Dude likes to hit!
Definitely not a fan of the idea either, but at least it sounds like they will look at the replay before making a decision. This will slow the game down, but maybe they can account for the offensive player lowering his helmet and causing the helmet to helmet contact. College AND the NFL should use this measure if you're going to call personal fouls and eject players for h to h hits. No one can be expected to accurately assign blame to the majority of those collisions in real time.
Good for Coach O'Brien to be able to tactfully say something. Alot of people have been waiting and I think that everybody is getting some legs under them now that the turbulent seas are managable.
BIG refs dont look at replays...Based on some calls last year (and many years before that), specifically the Nebraska call that most likely cost us another W, I would assume they are on their headsets setting up dinner for after the game with Joe Schmoe B1G replay official in the booth.

Thanks for sharing! This was definitely a good read. :)

Just wanted to say that I think you guys got the right guy!
Terrible rule, maybe the worst out there. How can you throw a player out for putting a good hit on a player. THe last thing we want is for these below average officals using discression.
